International work is an integral part of our curriculum at Dee Banks.
In September 2018 we had a joint residential with our German partner school which is called Schule an der Kleiststrasse from Oldenburg in Germany. We stayed at the Wingate Centre and the focus of the residential was Exercise and Healthy Eating. We took part in lots of different activities which included visiting Delamere Forest and New Brighton beach, gymnasium session at the Wingate, bowling, Swimming and bikes at Dee Banks. The week was a great success and helped continue our partnership and build the schools relationship.
We also have a partner school in South Africa called Blouvlei School which Jude and Lois were lucky to go and visit during February 2018 and had a brilliant experience of seeing their culture and see the differences and similarities in our schools. Lots of the work from these partnerships, including the school garden and recycling, is really important parts of our school curriculum.
For Fairtrade Fortnight we helped raise money selling Fairtrade produce. Thank you to all of those who supported us.
