Rhodesian Spotlight synopsis: The Governor General visits Arundel School for Girls in Salisbury.
Rhodesian Spotlight Commentary - The Governor General is welcomed to Arundel Girls School Salisbury by the principal, Miss Nicol Smith, who introduced the members of the staff. Arundel School, opened as recently as February this year, is already a fine example of the modern Public school by which paradoxically we mean, of course, Private School. Funds to build it were raised by private and company donations in the Federation. When and as further funds became available the number of pupils will be raised from 76 to 300 when the school is complete.
His Excellency was interested in all the activities going on at Arundel, its educational and cultural programme, as well as the modern accomodation for boarders. The girls at Arundel enjoyed his visit because he got them a half holiday before leaving.
