Thanks to funding from the British Council, we have been able to take part in a Comenius Project. Our partner schools are Oksval Kindergarten, Nesoddtangen, Oslo, Norway and Kleuterschool Edugo Lourdes – Meerhout, Oostakker, Ghent, Belgium. This funding has enabled reciprocal visits for staff to experience the very varied educational systems in Europe.
The first year of the project allowed Mrs T. Gelder, Project Co-ordinator, to visit both Oslo and Ghent. Miss D. Scott and Mrs S. Green visited Ghent and Miss C. Omerod and Miss V. Tait visited Oslo.
At the start of this term, Mrs C. Costello and Mrs K. Draper visited Oksval Kindergaren in Oslo. While there, they spent time working in the relaxed kindergarten, set in woodlands. They socialised with the staff there and had time to visit some of the amazing sights of Oslo.
In November, we shall be hosting 3 members of the Norwegian staff and 6 members of the Belgian staff. They will be teaching our children some traditional songs and simple phrases. Please select the link below to view our slideshow.
