Connecting Classrooms

Connecting Classrooms by British Council is a global education programme, which offers opportunity to share best practice with schools in the UK and more than 50 countries in Asia. Gundecha Education Academy’s partner schools in Cornwal UK are as follows:

  1. Penryn Junior School
  2. Sandy Hill Academy
  3. Treverbyn Academy

We are the cluster of three schools in India. Schools in our cluster in UK are Penryn Junior School, Sandy Hill Academy and Treverbyn Academy. Our partner school is Penryn Junior School. At present our partnership is going strong and smooth.

Since our association from the academic year 12 – 13, the projects exchanges with our partner schools have been on food, culture & language, being Indian / British, Indian & British railways, ambitions & careers etc.

There has been an overwhelming response from students in both countries. Children from Cornwall tried to learn Hindi and Indian children got opportunity to hear Cornish accent and songs when people visited India from Cornwall. Through this partnership we aim to develop our student’s awareness of another country and culture through their education and lifestyle. 

Our Head Mistresses, Ms. Shashi Bahuguna and Ms. Arvind Bhatia visited UK in May 2013 and May 2014 respectively as part of this exchange programme.
