International first for Plymouth schools
A COLOURFUL collection of international dance, art, music and literature came together at the Guildhall as schools from across the city celebrated a national first.
Every school in the city has achieved one of the three levels of the British Council International School Award – the only local authority in the UK to reach the standard.
The award is designed to make educational links with other countries and help to broaden the horizons of children and young people.
Cllr Nicky Williams, Cabinet member for children and young people, said: "We are proud to be the first local authority in the country to have all our schools achieve a level of the international award. This is a great example of why we should be in the running for the City of Culture 2017."
