Kolkata school links

The Board of Education has been working hard to develop links with schools in Kolkata mainly overseen by the Cathedral Relief Service in Kolkata. 

Over twenty schools in Derby City and Derbyshire have participated in reciprocal visits with schools in Kolkata and many have an ongoiung realtionship with their link schools. This is the story of how these links have been set up and what are our hopes for the future. A book in the Grove Educaiton series, Sustaining Global School Links, has been written by Anita Matthews and Alison Brown based on the thinking behind these links.

A set of collective worships have been written to help you explore our links with Kolkata and the theological elements of Wisdom, Hope, Community and Dignity. They use the Seeing Anew Approach. 

Here is a set of slides about our links in Kolkata. There are notes for the slides.

There are also sets of photos on these themes with accompanying notes: Kolkata Schools, Places of Worship, Puja, Transport, Water, and other photos. Mr Cuddles had adventures in Kolkata which your younger pupils might enjoy! 

There is also a six-minute film which will help give staff and pupils a flavour of the schools in Kolkata.
