This week we (Miss Hearn and Miss White) have been given an incredible opportunity by the British Council to go to Sri Lanka and collaborate with one of the schools there. So far, we have been educating them on the importance of recycling in order to reduce waste and achieve one of the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
We have created a very positive partnership with the school, which we will maintain when we return to England so that Brooklands Farm can do some collaborative learning with schools around the world to reduce waste!
In the evenings, the teachers have been kind enough to taken us on a tour of the city to understand their culture. We have tried lots of Sri Lankan food and have seen lots of different animals, including monkeys, lizards and elephants!
We will have to tell you all about it when we are back!
