UK virtual Exchange 2020-2021
As a part of the Outreach Programme, Birla High School in association with British Council and UKaid is collaborating with Green Bank High School of Southport, UK under the UK Exchange Programme, “LIFE BELOW WATER”.
This initiative is a part of Sustainable Development Goal (SDG 14) which aims to abreast the students about the adverse effects of plastic pollution and ocean acidification, thereby enabling them to understand its effects on coastal ecosystems.
Ten students of Class 8 have been selected for this project to collaborate with the students of Green Bank High School of Southport, UK. This international collaboration would help to instill core skills such as critical thinking and problem solving, creativity and collaboration in the students.
