Our link with Goodwill Children's Homes in India
Our link with the Goodwill Children's Home is an important aspect of the international work of the school. After having been linked to the Dej Geresu Duki High School, Woliso, Ethiopia since 2008 we developed a new link with Goodwill Children's Home in Tamil Nadu in 2015.
An important activity for the link is the annual Year 13 student visit every October. The visit offers an opportunity for leadership development for our students. It also develops young people as leaders and global citizens, through international educational links. The link offers a platform for our students to explore a whole range of issues about themselves and the world around them. In addition the 6th Form leaders pull together a major whole school fundraising effort which resulted in over £2000 being given to the Goodwill Children's Home Trust in 2015. We have also used the link to enhance the international dimension of our school curriculum and young people’s world awareness.
The next student visit takes place in October 2015 and is being led by Mrs Elliott and Mr Nicholson. If you would like more information about the project or wish to support our partner school then please contact us.
