Unison World School Exchange
On Monday, we were delighted to welcome back the Unison World School (UWS), India for their third annual visit to Kilgraston. This year, thirteen girls and two staff have travelled over four thousand miles to take part in the fifteen -day visit where the girls and staff will be immersed in Scottish culture, living and learning together, sharing the hopes, aspirations and challenges which they face in their respective countries.
UWS is an all-girls residential school in Dehradun, set in the foothills of the Himalayas and is ranked as number three school in India. The girls and staff will live in Kilgraston, attend lessons and visit historical, political, scientific and cultural sites. Their experience will be reciprocated in October when a group of Kilgraston pupils, the Deputy Head and Chaplain will travel to India. The Exchange Programme will continue to promote the advancement of international understanding, the dissemination of learning and the strengthening of cultural ties.
Mrs MacGinty said “It is with great pleasure that we welcome back the Unison World School to Kilgraston for their third exchange visit. After the success of last year’s visit, the staff and girls have been so looking forward to sharing our Scottish history, business, health and culture with them all. Once again, this year, we have a full itinerary for UWS so they will enjoy many excursions and events. As always, we are thoroughly looking forward to seeing and hearing their Indian dance and song. It is always a lovely experience seeing our girls welcome UWS to Kilgraston, where they form strong relationships with the girls. This year is even more special, as a number of our pupils will be visiting the Unison World School in October, staying in their residential school and being immersed in their education and culture. It is a wonderful opportunity for them and I am sure they will bring back a great deal to share with the other girls when they return.”Back to News
