For the last two years, Archie has been working closely with Gimnazjum nr 1 school in Dabrowa, Poland as part of a European funded Comenious project.
The two schools have been partnered for many years, with Kirkham house and Year 8 both being linked.
Comenious funding has enabled a number of visits and communications to take place between staff and students from both schools. The project has involved students learning more about each others’ cultures and languages. The end result is a series of videos, presentations and photo exhibitions demonstrating our own cultures and cities, and also comparing them with those of our link students.
The funding and project has enabled much greater and effective relationships between the two schools, with more projects and exchanges already in the pipeline for the 2013-2014 academic year.
