International school’s art

Alfreton Park Community Special School has been awarded the British Council’s prestigious International School Award in recognition of its work to bring the world into the classroom.

The award is a badge of honour for schools that do outstanding work in international education, such as through links with partner schools overseas. The school’s international work includes the two-year Comenius Project, ‘Special Artist in Europe’ which it has just completed. The school recently heard that it has been selected for a new Comenius Project ‘Va D’Art: Esculpture and Recycling’ which will run until summer 2013.
