Sri Lanka schools - March 2022
As it has been such a long time since we were able to visit our partner schools in Sri Lanka, we have sent canvases of Calthorpe Park School with a greeting to our partner teachers and students. These have now been received in Sri Lanka. The Sri Lanka team will be visiting and working in our partner schools during October half term this year, and we are looking forward to visiting again with a student team in October 2023.
We are also working towards the British Council’s International Schools award and hope to develop further exchanges of learning with our partners in the near future.
The assessor was impressed with our work with partner schools in Sri Lanka and the student visits which have taken place. They also noted our school’s previous successes in our model United Nations events, our multicultural citizenship days, our Indian Music topic in Year 8. As we move to the next stage of the award, we hope to share more of the work completed with one of our partner schools in Sri Lanka.
