Bharathi Vidyalaya gets involved in Partnership Programmes. The partner schools agree to work on the Joint Curricular Project general topics such as Rivers. The Joint Curricular Project also proposes to explore global issues such as Diversity, Critical Thinking, Resolving conflict, Interdependence, Commitment to sustainable development, Human rights and Global citizenship.
One such global partnership programme, was brought together by TCS and British Council, between Bharathi Vidyalaya and Skywood School, St. Albans.
Visit to Skywood School, St. Albans
Our global partnership, which has been sponsored by the British Council and Tata Consultancy Services, has enabled teachers from both schools to make reciprocal visits. Mr. Bridle and Mrs. Tracey visited Bharathi Vidyalaya in July 2012.
Our reciprocal visit to Skyswood School was scheduled between 19th November and 23rd November 2012. Lakshmi and I left for London on 18th November 2012 by British Airways. We reached London at around 9.00 A.M. on the 18th. Bob and Tracey were present at the airport to receive us. We went straight to our guest house at Park, St. Albans.
