The school term finished on 15th December 2011 for the long winter break. The school’s Principal, Mr Prasad Eledath, made an educational visit to the United Kingdom during January 2012.
A highlight of the trip was to visit the St Christopher School in Letchworth, Hertfordshire. DWLS has enjoyed a twinning with St Christopher School since 2005 when a group of students and staff from St Christopher first made a visit to Ladakh.
Since then a biennial visit has been established, with the UK students participating in a challenging trek in the Himalaya mountains, and spending time at DWLS delivering workshops and educational sessions.
Mr Eledath and the Head of St Christopher School, Mr Richard Palmer, had the opportunity to meet for the first time. The staff of St Christopher gave a tour of their campus and had discussions about the on-going twinning of the two schools, especially the next visit to DWLS which is scheduled for summer 2013. The students of both schools benefit enormously from the visits.
