School Networking

 

On the Picnic day

East Sujankathi Govt. Primary School is located at Goil of Barisal District that is enlightened with proper education and culture historically. Our Primary School is one of the aged educational Institutes around the locality.

Voices of the rural children are awaiting to be heard at the global arena. They are doing some excellent jobs beyond there curriculum. They are being integrated themselves to be involved to the locality development, Good agricultural practice, local natural resources, seeds and seedlings, homestead gardening, nutritional knowledge in a play mode. The initiative is a part of Krisoker Sor (Farmers’ Voice) ‘s research of  “Integrating Nature as an Educator to Primary Curriculum” . As a component of the initiative, School to School Partnership plays a vital role of letting the children touch the international flavour.

The School was registered at Global Gateway in 2007 (Reg. Code: EMIS 501010108) with the aim of building partnership with schools around the world. Among huge communication and efforts, networking with Hartley Primary School, Hartley Avenue, London has been established and sustained  in teacher-teacher, student- student communication level. Initially students of class five from both the school participated in a water project. They have exchanged fotos, thoughts, questions, drawings, feelings. Email exchange among them and even the initiative is to support for the former students who wish to keep going the communication.

The Partnership has been registered by DFID Global School Partnerships on 15 January, 2010

    To establishing and maintain Partnership among schools is an unique initiative considering various aspects. And it is definitely not a linear thing as well.

    The initiative becomes more complex when a school in UK and a rural school in Bangladesh tries their best to continue their partnership.

    In a project/ programme approach, where an UK school on side side feel the obligation to have partner (s) school, and the other side, they enjoys some economic freedom in different ways.

    On the other hand, the school in Bangladesh has the dedication and long term vision and plan to continue the relationship while enjoying the struggles around. So it is bound to keep the number of partnership as low as one. So the UK school becomes and remains the primary (sole) partner and hope for the Bangladeshi school.

    Here comes the question of formal agreement- which has so manifold usefulness. For Bangladeshi School, it also plays the key role of long term plan of whole school (even community) partnership in future.

    From our experience of long term partnership activities, it could be concluded that the partnership between East Sujonkathi School of Bangladesh and Hartley school in UK would live longer with sound health if we both could provide the partnership with an formal agreement between the two schools.
