On the 25th November Mrs Guest and Mrs Western visited India to carry out some work on the Connecting Classrooms Core Skills from The British Council. The focus of the lessons taught to the children in India were values underpinning good citizenship. The children discussed the ideas of Responsibility, Respect and Honesty and the impact of these values on their everyday lives.
The Connecting Classrooms conference held in New Delhi was truly inspirational with, amongst other speakers, the Minister of Education for India discussing the importance of learning core skills that employers would expect to see in the work place.
Since returning to Churchdown Mrs Western and Mrs Guest have been preparing a timetable of activities that we agreed with SAI International School. This will help promote the areas that we have been working on as part of our core skills training. We'll keep you posted!
