Why partner with a school?

School partnerships offer unique insights into another way of life. By collaborating on joint projects, students develop appreciation of cultural diversity and global issues such as migration, sustainability and conflict. For teachers, working with colleagues in other parts of the world is a rewarding way to develop professionally, engage young learners with the curriculum, and create further exciting opportunities for international work.
