The Project "International Book club" of Ms.Louise Prescott from U.S.A. provided our students ample opportunities to showcase their creative talents. They recommended books read by them, made beautiful illustrations, bookmarks, retold stories read by them.
We were lucky enough to work with Gartree School U.K. on theme of "Fairtrade". We gathered informations about local farmers and farming. Research was also done to find about Fairtrade, policies and lives of poor farmers of India. JNV Bhiwani's students highlighted the problems faced by farmers.
"Hi Namita, I just wanted to say thank you for all the wonderful things you have put on the page. I have been quite busy recently after Christmas so have only just had chance to look. Thank you so much! It would be great if some of my pupils could maybe put some questions on here about Fairtrade. Would that be possible?-Catherine"
Thanks Mr. Paul Dean for giving us opportunity to know about lives of students of Wells Primary.He welcomed us in his all Projects although they had partnership with HIM Academy India.We saw beautiful posters designed by Wells Primary School and they too appreciated our art works.
"I thought your little presentation was absolutley amazing- Prafful, Suchika,Atul and Brijmohan are clearly very talented pupils! It will be very interesting comparing our two different schools. We both have clearly opposite cultures but many rules are the same- for example you guys work from literally dusk till dawn! Whereas in England we don't necessarily have to work that long
Yours sincerely Gemma"
"Wow! Your group dance by girls.3gp is amazing! I absolutely love it!

Judy Skelton a language teacher working in the Peak District, Derbyshire U.K. is always motivating for us. Her Project was the first one we joined on eLanguages and since then we are working together in many Projects. The Projects are quite interesting for our junior classes' students. They love drawing animals' pictures and introducing themselves to their peers. We have started a new Project "Introduction in two Languages' and we hope it will be quite challenging and interesting.Thanks Judy for her patience with us.
Corpus Christi Catholic Primary School United Kingdom has an Art Project on eTwinning and we have joined in as one of the participants. The students from more than 14 countries are participating in this Project. Although only European Schools can join eTwinning but Ms Gemma Cleall of Corpus Christi School was generous enough to include our School also. Our students sent their Art work based on theme "Outside my Window".
Thanks to Ms Regine Cauboue and her wonderful class for their constant cooperation with us.

With start of School new session we hope to proceed in our efforts to give an International dimension to our classroom teaching. Today we feel the need of exposing students to outside world more than we used to do in past years.The students become broad-minded and adjustable in every kind of situation.
Our efforts started late in October 2009 but still we managed to join many International Projects of various countries. Our students felt confident and irrespective of their poor communication skills in English they contributed in form of Artworks, creative writings etc. This year we have planned to hold a video conference in our School so that students may get opportunities to interact with their epals of Italy, France,U.K., Pakistan.
