Hari Shree Vidyalayam and Blackfen School for girls in the UK established a working partnership agreement towards collaborative learning in November 2010. This partnership has received the British Council reciprocal visit grant multiple times and teachers from both schools have had many opportunities to visit each other. Many collaborative projects have also been undertaken as part of Connecting Classroom projects.

Students of Chettinad Hari Shree Vidyalayam had the opportunity to interact with their peers from Blackfen on diverse topics.  On request from the guests, our students were delighted to teach them the traditional dance form, Bharatanatyam. The Blackfen girls shared their experiences about their annual international trips, scouts training and academic interests. It was an informative and productive visit for both sides alike and we look forward to seeing them again.
