FAREWELL TO BRITISH TEACHING ASSISTANTS

Suzanne Henry and James Richardson worked at KCPS as Teaching Assistants for a period of 2 month under British Council's 'Generation UK-India' Programme. During their tenure, Suzanne Henry and James Richardson shared a lovely rapport with staff and students. They addressed groups of students from different classes on issues of global inter-dependence, diversity of identities and cultures and gender bias through a wide variety of participatory teaching-learning methodologies including structured discussions, debates, role-plays, campaigns, poetry and critical thinking sessions. Suzanne developed the project on ‘Leadership and Social Action’ to enable students to practice effective leadership and inspire positive changes within the local and global communities. James created a webpage featuring KCPS Newsletter. Principal Amarendra Mishra appreciated them for adding international dimension to the school and empowering pupils to acquire knowledge, values, skills and understanding which would go a long way in instilling confidence and creativity in them. On September 9, they were given a warm send off by the teaching staff of KCPS.
