Rossett School pupils have been building bridges with a school in Nepal after volunteering to help with a Rotary project.

Students recently took part in their first live chat with their Nepalese counterparts using Skype, bringing the two schools together.

Since the beginning of term, Rossett classes have been helping Panchamool High School by writing about life in Harrogate and recording clips of English for Nepalese students to learn from.

In the new year, members of the Rotary club will be travelling out to Nepal to take the recordings and documents to the partner school.

Headteacher Pat Hunter said: “When we first heard about the work being done by Rotary to help the school in Nepal, we knew straight away it was something we wanted to be involved with.

“We have really enjoyed finding ways to help the Nepalese students to learn English and the chat over Skype was fantastic – it was great to see some of our new friends and speak to them directly.

“We will be continuing to build our links with the school in 2014 and more of our students will be getting involved in various projects to support our new partnership.”
