In September 2015 two teachers from the Jac P Thijsse College in Castricum, The Netherlands went on a trip to India to see whether it would be possible to start up an exchange programme with the school in Mumbai, St Stanislaus. The purpose of this trip was to strengthen ties between the two schools with the goal to make concrete agreements for future exchange programmes.
This report is a summary of the activities and impressions that Judy Bepple and Dawn Milner had during their 10 day stay in Mumbai with EUMIND partner school Queen Mary School in Mumbai.
I had the opportunity to organize an individual study-trip with a grant (Vios-docentenmobiliteit) of the European Platform/Nuffic to partner schools in India. After having coached three students’ visits in 2008, 2010 and 2013 this was the right moment for me to learn and teach at Jamnabai Narsee School in Mumbai and Pawar Public School in Pune, the Indian partnerschools of the Pius X-College in Bladel, The Netherlands.
With this report I will try to summarise the history of EUmIND and share my personal findings and experiences of the weeks I have spent at the Indian partnerschools in July 2015.
