BBC World Class Twinning
BBC World Class is part of the BBC World Service with the mission to support teachers in developing school-to-school partnerships and encourage pupils to share creative work around the globe. From June 10th there are seven weeks to go until the London 2012 Olympics and the BBC World Class website’s content is themed during each of these weeks by one of the seven Olympic values; determination, friendship, respect, equality, inspiration, courage and excellence. As part of this, BBC World Class is holding a series of online discussions based around one of these themes.
The first of these took place on Wednesday 13th June and focused on determination. Six students from our school, Ivana Pavlovic II3, Katarina Pavlovic II3, Sanja Dedovic II3, Ana Jelisijevic II4, Milica Neskovic II1 and Vojislav Bogosavljevic II5 participated in this project, spreading a message of support and encouragement to Olympic and Paralympic athletes via social networks and BBC World Class official website. After they saw three videos based on the topic of determination, our students sent their thoughts and opinions about this Olympic value, bonding with young people from all over the world for an hour.
The next week’s topic is friendship, and we all hope that the new messages will be as encouraging as they were this time.
