Ocklynge teachers Toni Griffiths and Gemma Burke travelled to India over half-term to visit Sri Sankara School in Chennai.

The school in India is for children from kindergarten to secondary school age and they learn their lessons in English.

The main language at the school is Tamil but the children understand English.

The two year 4 teachers were lucky enough to be guests of honour at a Hindu baptism which will enrich their understanding of Hinduism when they teach this in Religious Education.

“It was an amazing ceremony to be a part of,” said Gemma.

They experienced the traditions and customs of the children in Chennai and immersed themselves into the Indian way of life.

They Skyped the children at Ocklynge to demonstrate communication between the two countries.
