International School Award 2022-2025
Parkgate Junior School has been re-accredited with the International School Award for 2022-2025.
Staff have worked hard over the last few years to provide opportunities for their school community to take part in international events and activities both in and out of school and in collaboration with schools in Sweden and Spain.
In the last year alone, events and activities including the Parkgate International Food Festival, Castanyada celebrations (an Autumn Festival in Spain), greetings card exchanges with international pupils, trips for staff and pupils to visit Sweden and Spain, international assemblies via video call and a Bollywood dance workshop have taken place and have been much loved by our school community.
With the re-accreditation of the award, Parkgate hopes to continue planning opportunities such as these in the future. Their next big event will be in October 2022, when pupils from Sweden and Spain are set to visit Watford to meet pupils from the school and participate in class activities as well as exploring the local area and visiting London.
