Mrs Hartwell visits World School 2016 delegates

We were delighted to welcome back to school Mrs Monica Hartwell, who used to be our Lead Teacher of German and International Co-Ordinator before her retirement in 2007. Mrs Hartwell is the reason why Invicta participates in the annual World School International Forum representing UK.

She visited Invicta this week, to meet with the World School 2016 delegates: Evie Horner, Katie-Louise Mason, Michalina Michalska and staff member Mrs Brewster. The delegates will be leaving for Japan on 23 October 2016 and they had a lot of questions to ask Mrs Hartwell!

They were told how a letter from the British Council arrived on her desk on the last day of term in 1997, inviting Invicta to take part in this new venture. The British Council had been approached by Kanto International School in Tokyo, asking them to suggest an UK school to take part. The British Council suggested Invicta because they had heard how strong our International work was.

Once Invicta was established as a World School participant, Mrs Hartwell was able to propose other schools such as our German partner school; The Kopernikus Gymnasium and our Finnish partner school Sotunki Higher Secondary School who now also regularly attend the forum.

The aim of World school is to bring students of a similar age from across the world, for two weeks of hard work and fun. The idea is to increase the understanding of each other’s cultures. 21 schools from places such as Australia, USA, Canada, Germany, Finland, China, India and Italy send three students and one staff member each year to the forum. This year the theme will be “Food and Culture”.
