Chapter II: The English Partners: Lincoln UTC
Unless you try to do something beyond you have mastered, you will never grow. Having this thought in mind, the school authorities came up with the idea of “Global Exposure program”.
A second step in this journey was taken when Mr. Ross Little and Mrs. Victoria Weaver, from the Lincoln UTC visited our school.
After a warm welcome and introduction to the school, their next stop was at the inter-disciplinary class between Science and English. The students gave some marvellous presentations, one being about Britain while the other being about the Human Brain. They also performed some humorous yet informative acts regarding the working of the brain and the science teacher later explained about these processes in detail.
Students were very curious to know more about the guests and their school and therefore asked them various questions regarding the same.
The guests were elated with the efforts that the children had put in and ended the session with some inspiring words for the students.
Truly agree to the fact that the teachers and students did a remarkable job.
We look forward to having more of such splendid experiences in the future.

"Learning is a treasure that will follow it's owner everywhere." The more we learn, the more we realize, the less we know."He, who is afraid of asking, is afraid of learning." The sensation of hunger and thirst within you should be as such that nothing except knowledge may fulfill it.
Post the classroom session, students of class X got a prodigious opportunity to ask questions from Mr. Ross Little and Mrs. Victoria, the teachers from our sister school, Lincoln UTC, England. Our students were bubbling with enthusiasm to hear the answers. Some of them asked general questions while others asked the technical ones.
Mr. Ross teaches Business Studies and Geography whereas Mrs. Victoria teaches students with special needs. In our school, the duration of a period is generally 35 minutes. To the contrary, it is one hour in Lincoln UTC.
The naughty ones are often isolated and given additional work after school. Students are given points for their academic performance every month which is added up by the end of the year. On the basis of the score they obtain, they get prizes like the Kindle e-reader. There is no uniform as such unlike other English schools. Formals are worn. Students get the benefit of work environment which is fruitful for their future. They get to do internship which helps them to get a clear idea whether they are fit to do that specific job.
In conclusion, it was a healthy and an amiable interaction. I would like to end this article with a quote,"Learning gives creativity, creativity leads to thinking, thinking provides knowledge, knowledge makes you great."
