Students at Scarisbrick Hall School near Southport have enjoyed a unique opportunity to virtually meet with pupils in Pakistan for a live interactive lesson.
They have also been discovering the magic of Disney with a live Q&A session with animator Michael Woodside, who created the animation of Olaf in the Frozen 2 movie.
On Monday (14th December) Year 11 at the school virtually met with pupils in Pakistan.
This enabled them to understand more about the world around them, whilst meeting students from thousands of miles away.
Jeff Shaw, Headmaster of Scarisbrick Hall School and co-founder of The Global Classroom, said: “Our pupils relished the opportunity to discuss the difference between culture, education and so much more in the UK and Pakistan.
“The opportunity to participate with students from Pakistan would not have been possible without The Global Classroom and it presented our pupils with a fantastic experience and enabled them to expand their understanding of different cultures.”
Also, on the same day, and while many children are watching Disney classics this Christmas, pupils at Scarisbrick Hall School have been learning about the art behind the magic from Michael Woodside of Disney Animation Studios.
Following his tutorial on The Global Classroom in November where he showed children how to draw their own Olaf, Michael joined the school for a live Q & A to answer questions from our GCSE Art pupils.
This was an exciting opportunity for pupils to learn more about life as a professional artist and the potential career paths they can take.
