The British Council launched the third phase of ‘connecting classrooms’ in Bangladesh at a programme at British Council Fuller Road office in the capital on Sunday, says a press release. Primary and Mass Education Minister Advocate Mostafizur Rahman was the chief guest while Director General of NAEM Md Hamidul Haque was the special guest and British High Commissioner Robert W Gibson was the guest of honour. ‘Connecting Classrooms’ is the British Council’s flagship global education programme, co-funded by Department for International Development. It is designed to help young people develop knowledge, skills and values to live and work in a globalised economy and make a positive contribution locally and globally. It aims to build capacity of 3000 teachers and 600 school leaders in Bangladesh to support them to integrate a range of core skills into the curriculum. The British Council had completed two phases of the ‘connecting classrooms’ programme in Bangladesh over the last six years, and this launch marked initiation of the third phase of this programme in Bangladesh. The event also hosted an award-giving ceremony for 27 schools, who achieved the British Council’s International School Award. There was also an art exhibition of the Rivers of the World project where 90 students from Chittagong shared their experience of learning outside the classrooms to enhance their understanding of the resourcefulness of the Karnaphuli River.
