British Council delegates visit Denbigh High School

15 December 2008
On Monday 1st December a group of delegates from Bangladesh visited Denbigh High School and Challney High School for Boys as part of the British Council's Connecting Classrooms' project.
The delegates that visited both schools were all senior education officials from Bangladesh.
The delegation is spending a week in London where they are participating in an 'Internationalising the Curriculum' workshop.
The purpose of their visit is to explore opportunities where there are similarities in the Bangladesh and UK curricula and through doing this, highlight areas for schools to collaborate in Joint Curriculum Projects.
This will then feed into the British Council's Connecting Classrooms Central and South Asia programme' which will give the British Council the chance to provide schools with detailed guidance when planning their joint curriculum projects.
The visit to Denbigh High School and Challney High School for Boys gave delegates a valuable opportunity to gain a real insight into the life of two successful British schools, therefore enabling them to better understand the context within which teachers and headteachers are working.
The delegates were welcomed to Denbigh High School by Executive Principle, Dame Yasmin Bevan and Associate Principle, Daniel Connor.
They then met with Denbigh's International Coordinator, Sara Hakeem, Denbigh Teacher & International Link, Erin Stewart and a group of students who talked about the school's international work and the links with schools in other countries.
After the meeting the delegates were taken on a tour of the school before observing a number of lessons.
