On 17th October 2019, as a part of the exchange programme, the Scottish Students along with their teachers visited St. Edmunds School, Jawahar Nagar. The guests were welcomed in a pure Indian way with our traditions which included applying Tikas on their forehead and making them wear the flower garlands.
The students learned the methods of Indian education closely, while the team of teachers of Wellington School also went to the children's class and discussed with the students about the education system and culture of their country.
As a part of extracurricular activities, they also showed their talent of dancing along with the Bollywood songs in the Dance room and few of them also expressed their artistic abilities in the Art Lab where they were able to learn new techniques of painting with the help of our teachers.
St. Edmunds School has been working continuously for the many years towards the all-round development of students by sharing with each other's cultures and teaching methods under the exchange program with schools from countries like Scotland, France, Bulgaria etc.
Wellington School student Sophie, Meera, Ellie expressed her happiness after the school visit and said that every moment spent with the children of the school was excited and full of knowledge for us. We not only got a chance to learn a lot in the field of education as well as the opportunity to get to know the cultural heritage of Rajasthan very well through the Heritage Club.
The joint director of the school, Dr Pooja Singh and Principal Anu Bhatia, thanked Wellington School Principal Simon Johnson, International Coordinator Susan M Coontz and the team of students for coming to the school and sharing the cultural heritage.
Hopefully, such visits keep on happening often so that the delegates and children get the opportunity not only to strengthen their friendly bonds but to also learn about the rich culture and heritage of each other’s countries.
