Forging Links between Delhi and Dublin 2011
Global Education Experience
It was an incredible and truly rewarding experience for Presentation Convent School, Delhi 6 as it served as a platform to make strong bonds with Colaiste Bride, Presentation Secondary School, Clondalkin, Dublin, Ireland from 30th October 2011 till 5th November 2011.
Sr. Ursula, the coordinator of Global Education Experience (GEE), and her team of six members from Colaiste Bride Dublin, Ireland, had an enriching experience as they interacted with the students and staff members in an atmosphere of openness, congeniality and harmony. ,There was an exchange of innovative ideas of the Education system in Ireland and the Education system in India.
The interactive sessions focused on the aims of GEE wherein the members experienced the relationship between personal faith and care for others. They promised to grow in the spirit of volunteerism and develop an understanding of environmental degradation, social justice and economic policies.
The staff and students gained interesting ideas about establishing cooperation and experience the relationship between personal faith and care for others. It was a wonderful experience to share the vision of our dear foundress Nano Nagle and reaffirm the promise to walk in her footsteps.
The exchange programme between Presentation Convent Delhi 6 and Dublin 22 has been instrumental in broadening the viewpoint of many and will be cherished for the indelible traces of goodwill generated through thought-provoking discussions on various spheres of Education.
