The School is pleased to announce that a new exchange programme has been finalised with the Aga Khan Academy, which is based in Mombasa Kenya!
The exchange will involve students from grade nine to eleven, who will be going to Mombasa from February 15th to March 2nd. Whilst there, the students will collaborate with 10 students of the Aga Khan academy in putting together a theatre piece that deals with Diaspora experiances (Kenyans of Indian descent, and the Kenyan/Sidi community in India)
As a part of the project, during the months leading up to the exchange, the students will be involved in conducting pertitant research. The Kenyan students will go out and interview members of the indian community, and similarly, our students will go out into Ahmedabad (and possibley other parts of the state) in order to interact with the Sidi communities. All of this research will be documented and will form the basis of the brainstorming process when the two groups meet and begin work on their theatre production.
