PEACE(Programme for Educational and Cultural Exchange) is a link between
the Tunbridge Wells Girls Grammar School (TWGGS) and our school.
A major step towards the programme was made in February 1995 when Ms. Angela
Daly, head teacher of TWGGS and another teacher, Miss Dorothy Swann, visited
our school. As a reciprocal visit, our principal, Smt. N. Vijayalakshmi
and teacher, Smt. Sukumari, left for England on 2nd October 1995.
A couple of years after the first visit by the 2 teachers of TWGGS, 19
students and 4 teachers were able to visit our school in 1996. The
next year, in July, 3 teachers and 21 students of our school were given
a chance to go to England. In October 1998, another group of students
& teachers from UK arrived at our school. The student exchange
also included students from the Tunbridge Wells Boys Grammar School.
STAY & VISITS
PEACE has helped in new learning of lifestyles, education and people of a different country, principles of discipline and organisation and values of friendship and understanding. In July 1999 our second team of goodwill is expected to visit Tunbridge Wells. Thus, this Cultural and Educational link between the Queen of the Arabian Sea and the Country where the Sun Never Sets, goes on and on and on.....
Here's a big picture of the members of the PEACE Team which visited the school in November 1998.
