PB Middle International Baccalaureate Goes Global

Pacific Beach Middle School’s International Baccalaureate (IB) social studies students participated in a unique cultural exchange with students from the Children Walking Tall Charity in Goa, India.

Dedicated to providing education and assistance to the children living in the slums of India, Walking Tall Charity provided a unique opportunity for PB Middle IB teacher Erin Knight (at left in photo) who traveled to India to hand-deliver the PB Middle pen-pal letters.

“The children in the charity were excited by our delivery and immediately sat down to write back to their pen-pal,” said Knight. “Not only did this service learning project bring awareness to the issues faced by children living in the slums of India, but our students were able to establish meaningful friendships across the world.”
