Teachers visit as part of project

NORTH Leamington School welcomed two teachers from its sister school in India last week as part of a set of visits to organise projects between the schools.

Shamael Khawaja and Fauzia Ansari, of Anjman-I-Islam Saif Tyabji Girls’ School in Mumbai, visited the Sandy Lane site for five days last week.

Pupils at both schools are working together on projects in geography, citizenship and religious education.

A highlight of the visit was a video conference involving both sets of students in which they discussed issues of similarities and differences as part of their geography work.

The visiting teachers also held an assembly to celebrate Indian’s Republic Day last Thursday.

The partnership between the schools, which has been funded by the British Council, is now into its second year.

A return visit by two members of North Leamington’s staff is scheduled for April.
