SAI International School Visit to Chosen Hill School

Monday 26th September 2022

On Monday 26th September 2022, Chosen Hill School was proud to host visitors from our British Council international partner school in India, SAI International. Over 40 students and 5 staff from SAI International joined 10 students from Parton Manor Primary and 41 of our students from Year 9 and the Sixth Form.

The objectives of the day were to build strong bonds between our schools, meet and make new colleagues and friends, start learning about things we have in common and our differences, and to begin the process of working together to gain a better understanding of international issues and to start the planning for exciting international collaborative projects

The event was hosted in the Main School Hall where students from each of the three schools were mixed together to form a number of groups that were hosted by a Chosen Hill School Sixth Form student.

Students made presentations to each other about life at their respective schools, participated in a range of collaborative learning activities based around the role of the Commonwealth of Nations. Later in the day, the older students from SAI International and Chosen Hill School discussed the arguments for and against nuclear weapons as part of the UN Day for the Elimination of Nuclear Weapons.

Meanwhile a group of 11 teachers from across the three schools met to discuss a range of exciting future collaborative projects to enable us all to develop and enhance the international dimension to learning at our schools. Representatives from Business Studies, Modern Foreign Languages, English Mathematics, Humanities and Science joined the meeting and initial plans for 12 projects were scoped out.

To finish off the day a group photo was taken, and our students waved off our visitors.
