International HWCE


At HWCE we think it is important to understand about how other people live in different countries across the world. We spend a day per term working with children in our house teams and learning about 4 different countries. We think about what life is like for children in these countries and how it differs from how we live. They develop a sense of enjoyment and fascination in learning about others and the world around them and are encouraged to accept, respect and celebrate diversity. 


In the afternoon on these days we look at The Gambia and Zenith Prep School as we e-twin with them. Every year we all complete a project which we send over to them to help them understand what life is like for us. They regularly send us PowerPoints and information about them too. This promotes mutual respect, thankfulness, tolerance and compassion in the children. See the files below.
