Pupils at a Doncaster secondary school are setting up links with a school in India for the first time.

Hungerhill School, Edenthorpe, has set up a link with a school in Chennai and it follows previous links with schools in Ghana.

A school spokesman said: “Hungerhill has now established a link with Chinmaya Vidyalaya School. We hope this will provide learning opportunities, in addition to those based on the rich culture of India, for all of our pupils.”

The school says activities have already been started with the Indian school, with pupils from Hungerhill representing the school in a live Skype session, where traditional Indian yoga techniques were demonstrated by India pupils.

Hungerhill says there are activities planned between the schools over the course of this academic year which would include further live chat sessions, culture based activities, and international visits.
