Our Comenius trip to London was a very interesting and unforgettable  experience . We

visited Chelsea Community Hospital School which is the only hospital school  in London that

works across four London hospitals . Due to time constrains we visited only two sites :

Chelsea and Westminster Hospital and Collingham Child and Family Centre where we

received a warm welcome from the Staff. We had an opportunity to tour the unit and meet

children and teachers .

We took part in Horse Riding session ( Equine therapy )

and Art

classes with younger students .We spent afternoon doing eco-animation with students using

recycled material .

We also made a presentation for all Staff about our school and the work we have been doing

towards Comenius .

We were happy to go for  The Queen’s walk which  took us over Westminster Bridge . along 

the South Bank of the River Thames towards Tate Modern then back over the river on the

Millenium footbridge to St.Paul’s Cathedral . We had a chance to enjoy some of London’s

most popular tourist attractions .

On the second day we met with older students to observe a lesson and give a presentation

about our city and country . After that we organised a short quiz with prizes .

At Chelsea and Westminster Hospital we had a chance to tour the hospital and made a

Christmas gingerbread cookies workshop with younger students .

We had an opportunity to

attend a training course led by Luke Abott entitled “ Mantle of the Expert “ .

We went for an amazing day trip to Surrey Wildlife Trust for a workshop on interdependence

with students and teachers from Collingham Child and Family Centre .

Our closing session with all the Staff was an opportunity to share work and discuss next steps

in our cooperation .

We are grateful for the warm welcome and we hope to meet our Comenius Partners again !
