  19. 19. Why eTwinning? ‘WCPS prides itself on being an innovative, outward looking school that is interested in and involved with the world outside its doors. By eTwinning with a school abroad, we continue with this outlook by entering into the world of another school and viceversa. Together, we are discovering our similarities and differences, and celebrating the diversity if our lives. Pupils are using ICT (and paper and pen) to communicate in their own language as well as in the language of the partner school and ths their skills in many areas of the curriculum are being enhanced – geography, history, literacy, citizenship, art, music, technology and, of course, ICT and Language.’ Lisa Stevens 2007 Lisa Stevens http://lisibo.blogspot.com Saturday, 13 March 2010
