UPTON High School students had a taste of India during the last week of term.
The youngsters welcomed a delegation of seven students and eight staff from Kolkata as part of a British Council UKIERI (UK-India Education & Research Initiative) programme.
Students on both sides have been working together on a global citizenship project through the internet.
The party from India arrived in Upton a week later than expected because of visa problems.
They gave a dance performance which was enjoyed by students, staff, parents, governors and representatives from the Chester Asian Council. There was also an art exhibition.
The cluster of schools involved in the project also includes Mickle Trafford, Newton and Mill View primary schools.
Upton students will make a return visit to India in November 2010 which will include a conference on the environment.
A spokesperson from the school said: “We very much appreciate the contribution of parents and families who hosted our visitors to make this event a success and wish to thank Mr Ali, of the Bombay Palace, who hosted a farewell party attended by many last Friday.”
