Connecting with a school in U.K
In March 2013 Mongrace children connected with a partner school, England Jane Kin Lane School in U.K. They received a parcel from the U.K partner School. Children got together in a classroom and waited with great excitement to open the parcel sent by their international friends.
A world map was hung on the wall and children were shown the route from India to England. They learnt the name of their partner school and were excited to know that they have children of their age in a school in UK and whom they can call their E pals.
The parcel contained cards printed with different coloured fingerprints of children.

Next to each fingerprint name of the child was written.  Some cards had beautiful drawings done by the children. The parcel also contained palm crosses, Easter Activity Book, Chicks decoration, Window gel stickers...all this made children really happy.
Later a display board was made with all the material that they received.
