In 2014 we have tried to build and sustain connections with International Schools. We have worked on projects with Global Indian International School, East Coast, Singapore and our UKIERI partner, Air Balloon Hill Primary School, Bristol. Besides this, our Principal has visited a few schools in the USA and learnt from them. The purpose of this exchange is to share our best practices and gain from international exposure.
In the month of April 2014, BEJS had a project on ‘ Yummy Fruits and Vegetables'. We took inputs from GIIS, Singapore on different fruits eaten there. A Power Point presentation was made on the same and shown to our children.

This Cluster worked for a period of 3 years on the joint curriculum project - The 5 R's - Reuse, Reduce, Recycle, Refuse and Rejoice.
