Interactive Sessions with Delegates from UK

The Palace School students and teachers got a rare opportunity on the 9th of August to interact with teachers from UK. The teachers from different fields of specialization shared their knowledge and experience with us.

We had amongst us teachers of ‘Religious Studies’ and ‘English as Foreign Language’, Teacher from Initial Teacher Training, Trainee Doctor and Trainee Nurse.DSC_8488

A traditional welcome comprising of ‘tilak’ and garlanding was greatly appreciated by the guests. It was followed by a short cultural program comprising of Indian folk dances that enthralled the visitors.

Thereafter the interactive sessions were held with various groups .

The scouts along with the physical training teachers were briefed by the Trainee Doctor and Trainee Nurse about ways to give first-aid on school campus in case of medical emergencies. Even the helping staff of the school was given lessons in first –aid.

The teachers of our school interacted with teachers from UK and exchanged ideas about making teaching more effective. It was a very enriching session in which the teachers discussed and analyzed the cultural differences, the methodologies and the education policy of the two countries.DSC_8600

The session with students was equally exciting and interactive in which the students took part in some playful activities while learning about the cultural differences between the two countries.

All in all it was a very informative session for each group and the school hopes to rope in more such interactive sessions for the benefit of the students and teachers.
