Teaching and learning
Cambridge School Communities are being set up around the world to encourage collaboration – both by bringing Cambridge schools together, and by offering schools a new way of giving feedback to Cambridge regional teams.
In India, there are now 12 Cambridge School Communities across the country. The Cambridge School Community Bangalore was initiated in July 2016, by Ruchira Ghosh, Regional Director, South Asia, and meets every two months. The most recent meeting in April 2017 brought together principals, teachers, exams officers and coordinators from 15 Cambridge schools.
Mr Samik Ghosh, Principal of Candor International School, Bangalore says: 'The Cambridge School Community has been an excellent platform to share resources, discuss common concerns, and find solutions to various matters relating to running schools in general and running Cambridge programmes in particular.'
At the latest meeting, experienced teachers conducted workshops to clarify a few points about Cambridge curricula and examinations. The workshops were for art teachers, physical education teachers and psychological counsellors. The Community also discussed plans for initiating interschool activities and common projects between schools.
'We have managed to create a healthy atmosphere of sharing which has helped in the exchange of meaningful ideas to enrich and diversify the experience of students at our schools. It has also most certainly created camaraderie between the participating schools, and we have been sharing best practices as well,' says Mr Ghosh.
The Community’s next meeting will be held at one of the member schools in Bangalore.
