Scoil Aonghusa CNS is going global by partnering with an elementary school in Silicon Valley California. The school is linking with Forest Hill Elementary, San Jose for a ‘Cultural Exchange’. The project will involve teachers and pupils linking with classes in the California school and communicating throughout the year as Penpals, by email and Skype. Scoil Aonghusa CNS is an All Inclusive Multicultural School serving the needs of all faiths and none, dedicated to delivering an exceptional education that promotes and develops the academic, social and emotional needs of all its pupils. This National School is preparing students for their future and part of this is by broadening their horizons and giving them the chance to learn about another country and culture from their own peers. Silicon Valley is a technology hub with 1000s of technology companies being based there and who also have Satellite Offices in Ireland. During the ‘Cultural Exchange’, Scoil Aonghusa CNS students will develop friendships and learn about life for their peers in Silicon Valley, their school, culture and environment. Principal of Forest Hill Elementary Denise Khalid commented “Forest Hill Elementary School is thrilled to be partnering with Scoil Aonghusa CNS. We look forward to building relationships with the students while increasing our knowledge of other cultures, traditions and people in our world. I feel our students would benefit greatly from the experience. I appreciate the opportunity and look forward to learning more about the Mallow School Students”.
