In 2018 St. John's CE Primary School and Nursery and St. Peter's church in Belper, began working with the Cathedral Relief Service in Kolkata India. This link was made possible through the Diocese of Derby who facilitate and support many Derbyshire schools in making friends in Kolkata.
The objectives for our international link is to -
- Help the communities of St. John's and St. Peter's find out about life in Kolkata.
- Help the children in Kolkata find out about life in Belper and St. John's School.
- Develop teachers and teaching in Belper and Kolkata through the sharing of practice.
The pages below who you how we have developed our friendships with Scott Lane School in Kolkata and helped children at St. John's learn about life for school children in Kolkata.
