Our Friends Abroad

Our friendship with the pupils and staff of Anjuman-l-Islam's Begum Sharifa Kalsekar Girls' English High School continues to grow and blossom.

 

In the second half of the Spring Term and in the Summer Term both schools will watch lessons and assemblies in each other's schools via SKYPE!  Our 'test run', where pupils spoke to each other about lessons, subjects, celebrations, religion and hobbies, was a great success.

Mrs Fitzgerald, our Special Educational Needs Coordinator, visited Anjuman in the Autumn Term.  

 

She exchanged work with the pupils and our main hall display showcases work from pupils in 3 different Continents.  

 

Our pupils continue to appreciate their similarities with their friends abroad, while celebrating their differences.

Quilters Junior School enjoys strong relationships with two different schools in the African and Asian continents, one of which is in India and the other in Nigeria; we intend to further strengthen these relationships and our work together over the coming year.  

 

Read on to find out how:

 

The school in Mumbai is the Anjuman-l-Islam's Begum Sharifa Kalsekar Girls' English High School.  Mr Wade has known the principal, Fauzia Ansari, for many years. 

 

During the Year 2015/16, our schools will work closely together in many ways:

 

  • Our pupils will write to one another, making friends in another continent.
  • The children will Skype their new friends, enjoying debates about school issues and will engage in discussions about the differences and similarities of their daily lives.
  • The children in each school will learn out about our shared values.
  • Our Quiltonians will continue to raise money for good causes locally, alongside our friends in the Rotary Club, and we will also raise money for good causes in the community of the Anjuman-l-Islam's Begum Sharifa Kalsekar Girls' English High School.
  • We will run simultaneous events, like the upcoming 'Talent Day', where the pupils in our school and their friends in Mumbai will engage in and enjoy the same activities on the same day.  We will share our work with one another.  There will be work by our pupils proudly displayed in the school corridors in Mumbai!  
  • All of our shared work and experiences will be celebrated on this page.  Keep an eye out for lots of exciting developments!

 

Please have a look at their website:    http://www.anjumanbskengschool.com/default2.asp#

 

 

 

We have sponsored a group of students in the school in Nigeria for ten years now.  Timothy, Rehema, Brenda and Ivan would simply not be able to go to school without our support.
