Two British Teaching Assistants joined KC Public School on July 14 under British Council’s ‘Generation UK-India’ Programme. The programme is applicable in schools in India which are accredited as members of the International School Award (ISA) Programme of the Council.
Suzanne Henry aged 25 hails from outside London and is a graduate in Human Rights & Law. She has been working since her graduation in 2012 and has volunteered in community projects. James Richardson born in Manchester is at present completing his studies at Glasgow University in History and Politics. Both these Teaching Assistants will work at KCPS for 2 months and would undertake project work with the children of both senior and junior wings of the school through a special time schedule worked out for them by the school. Both teachers would also work with children in terms of their skills in spoken English through drama and speech. Before joining KCPS, they attended a special orientation session organized by the British Council along with Tamana Pandohi, a senior faculty member of KCPS, deputed to receive them at Delhi and bring them to Jammu.
Mr. Raju Chowdhary, Chairman of KC Educational Society, welcomed the Teaching Assistants from UK in a special meeting and wished them well as visiting teachers to the school. He expressed the hope that their experience of teaching Indian children at KCPS would go a long way in shaping their career as teachers.
