Students from Pulaski Street Intermediate School and Cwmffrwdoer Primary School in Wales, United Kingdom conferenced to learn more about the others’ culture and lives while also celebrating the World Cup.

“We are thrilled to provide our students with such an amazing international learning opportunity,” said Riverhead Central School District Superintendent Dr. Augustine E. Tornatore. “The World Cup brings together teams from across the world to compete against one another, but it also reveals commonalities and drives international dialogue.”

The classes took turns asking questions about topics such as cultural practices, educational systems and school lunches.

One connection between the two schools was their respective nations’ participation in the 2022 Men’s World Cup. Students wore their team jerseys and discussed the tournament.

“The students on both sides of the pond truly enjoyed this experience,” said Pulaski Street Intermediate School Principal Patrick Burke. “With the help of technology, we look forward to providing more exceptional interactive opportunities for our students.”
