Silver Bells School first visited the Brixham C of E Primary school in 2003. This visit initiated the partnership between the two schools, which is growing stronger each year.
Brixham C of E Primary School is a partner of SilverBells School in Ghaziabad which is near Delhi in central India. The British Council sponsored the teachers’ exchange programme. From 2003 onwards many teachers from both sides of the globe have benefited from this experience. In alternate years, two or three staff members travel to India from Brixham, to spend time working with children at Silver bells. They experience the culture and traditions of life in India, and are able to share this with children on their return to school.
Likewise, Indian teachers visiting Brixham experience the culture of an English school. They bring with them a richness of experiences around understanding faith, culture and traditions, which they are able to share with our children and staff.
Mutual respect and understanding has created a strong bond of friendship between the two schools. Mrs Sethi & Mrs Raina visited Mrs Easter and her staff in Brixham in June 2010 to discuss the possibility of further interaction in the years to come.
The visit was successful and the partnership now stands at a new threshold and it continues to grow and flourish.
