In order to foster a deeper understanding of the Indian education system and facilitate a study exchange programme aimed at enhancing the quality of education in the K-12 segment between India and Britain, a group of head teachers drawn from various schools in UK visited DCM Presidency School, Jamalpur. The teachers from UK had a productive interaction with the students, members of the faculty and the school management leading to various mutually agreed global educational partnerships and programmes.
Leading the delegation, Margaret Jackson, head teacher, Ladymount Catholic Primary School, Merseyside, Wirral, said, "It was indeed a pleasure to be able to interact with such a dedicated team of teachers and staff who are totally committed to the cause of dissemination of education." Jackson said their visit had proved to be immensely productive and they had realised that the infrastructure and the advanced facilities provided to the students of the school could match the best across the globe.Lauding the system of assessment launched by CBSE in schools, Jackson said it was imperative that the educators provide ample opportunities and exposure to the students so that they do not only excel academically but also become global citizens who can keep pace with this Technologically fast evolving world. She said, "We are taking back lot of beautiful memories and new ground-breaking practices being adopted in this part of the globe." On the occasion, teacher Mark Whitehill gave a detailed talk about the British system of education. He also motivated the teachers to understand and empathise with the needs of the students and deal with them compassionately keeping in view their abilities and nature. The visiting delegation exchanged several ideas related to the education of the young children. Whitehill said, "It's a great honour to be associated with DCM School. We look forward to an enriching relationship with this group of schools which has served the cause of education for the last more than six decades." Sunil Kumar, vice-principal, gave a presentation on the innovative practices being adopted in the school and also its achievements in the short span of three years. Kumar said, "DCM Presidency School is among the 10 schools selected from India for study exchange programme with the schools in UK."
