This gallery features pictures from March 2007 when Mr Hyde and Mrs Jackson made the long journey to Chennai to visit the Mrs YGP school.  Mr Hyde and Mrs Lynam visited during the 2009/2010 school year and Mrs Jackson visited again with Miss Freshwater in February 2011.  In 2012 Mr Hyde visited accompanied by Mrs Hyde and Mr Brown, the  Chairman of Governors (at his own expense). Staff from the Calibre Academy have visited the Edward Richardson school in September 2009, 2010, 2011 and September 2012  - following fact finding visits prior to the beginning of our work together.


We watched an assembly, which was held outside. We were welcomed in traditional India style.
Then we were interviewed by a national TV news channel and were broadcast across India and, via cable, across the world! We also had a chance to experience teaching classes in the Calibre Academy.  Here Mrs Jackson is teaching a class to use adjectives.
