International Links

In October 2017 we were hosts to teachers from Spain, Belgium, Hungry, Belarus and Finland; they were visiting schools in Plymouth as part of a link Erasmus project with the Amber Initiatives. The vision of Amber Initiatives is to contribute to the development of a participative, tolerant and inclusive society, free from discrimination, racism and extremism, through education, culture, social inclusion and community engagement. Graeme Kirkup a former police officer has visited the school previously in his role as a member of the Diversity Team and worked with children at Oakwood on celebrating diversity and differences. He accompanied the teachers on their visit to Oakwood. The teachers had a tour of the school and grounds and were able to join our reception children taking part in Forest School activities in our environmental area and Learning Den. The children in Hazel burst into song when we visited their class and our guests were able to share hello and thank you in their respective language. We finished the morning with some coffee and delicious cakes to support the McMillan Charity event. The teachers were very interested in the similarities and difference with education in England and their own countries.
