Connecting Classrooms, which the British Council runs in partnership with the UK Department for International Development, offers financial support to UK schools and their partner schools to develop their work together. Countries they can partner with are in South Asia, Sub-Saharan Africa, Middle East, North Africa and certain Americas.
Dunkirk has linked with a school in Pakistan for over 16 years. This school is called The Lahore Lyceum School in Lahore, Pakistan. Click here to see examples from the Dunkirk Primary website of previous work with The Lahore Lyceum.
This funding will enable us to resume our link and have a number of teacher exchange visits over the next two years. The work will link to the same theme as Erasmus + and this will enable all three schools in UK, Finland and Pakistan to draw upon different perspectives and ideas from around the world.
