Justin Madders, MP for Ellesmere Port and Neston, was delighted to present Woodfall Primary School, Neston with the International School Award at a ceremony in Parliament to celebrate their exceptional work in international education.
Justin joined representatives of the British Council, the UK’s international organisation for cultural relations and educational opportunities, to deliver the award.
“It is impressive how Woodfall Primary has created more cultural understanding and awareness by partnering with overseas schools throughout the year. I am delighted that its hard work is now recognised with the prestigious International School Award from the British Council.”
The British Council set up the International School Award in 1999 to recognise schools leading the way in developing a global dimension to their teaching environment. This can include projects between schools in different countries, video conferencing and exchange trips, but also cultivating a wider awareness among pupils that they are global citizens.
