We are now in our second year of collaboration with seven other European schools, working on a curriculum project with the theme of water. Last year we had a student conference in Holland and at Portchester with our Dutch partner school. This year we are working with our Italian partner school from Padua. A group of Year 9 students and two staff and have travelled to Italy to take part in their student conference at the same time as a group of Italian students have travelled to Portchester to take part in our conference.
Monday 16 April saw the first day of the curriculum project here with our Italian guests attending classes with their Portchester student hosts. Then it was off to Portchester Castle for a bit of local history and students getting to know each other through some games on the castle grounds.
Students will work together during the course of this week to look at the impact of water on the local economy and industry.
