They took Ugandan pupils out in small groups for word games and activities, explaining a little about English culture.
A Uganda v England football match brought their time at the school to a close with the African side wearing a strip donated by Gilberts Outfitters. At the Suubi Clinic, the Liskeard team painted the maternity room and outside the centre and helped build the medicine storeroom from scratch.
A spokesman said: "The students gained a great deal from their work experience on community projects. The visit ended with a trip to Queen Elizabeth Game Park and a safari. The whole adventure was thoroughly enjoyed by both students and teachers and the experience and memories gained were unforgettable."
