"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"

"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"

Carbon Footprints Project with Woodhey School U.K.


We held Energy Survey last month and its results are being sent to Woodhey School Bury U.K. Mr. Mark Barlow had been so nice to allow our School to participate in his Project "Carbon Footprints", and "My House".We are enjoying doing them. On 24th June 2010 will be the Low Carbon Day and all the participants of Projects from different countries will exchange information regarding CO2 emissions. We exchanged information and students of Woodhey High School sent us questions about the ways we adopt to save energy in our School. They suggested some effective ways to save energy.Our students calculated their carbon footprints and came to the conclusion that compared to others we are consuming less power. We have already adopted energy saving ways.Now the students have become more conscious about their carbon footprints and are learning ways of going green.Another participant of the Project Mm. Joyce of Mexico informed us about the exhibition that is going to be held in her School. We are waiting eagerly for the displays. As soon as the School opens in July first week students will be eager to see the pictures uploaded to the sites and posters designed by their peers across the globe.

Our Learning Partners

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.
