International School-to-School Experience (I.S.S.E.):
The International School-to-School Experience (ISSE) is a unique international program for schools that provides for the exchange of thoughts and ideas through face-to-face contact with children from other countries around the world. It is non-profit, non-political, and non-religious in nature. The program gives all ten to twelve year old children the opportunity to experience and understand other cultures on a first-hand basis. It is an innovative approach for schools that realise the importance of international experience in modern student education.
Birmingham Primary School is one of only four Australian schools who participate in the program which also includes a large number of participating schools across: China, Costa Rica, India, Malaysia, Mexico, Ecuador, El Salvador, Japan, U.S.A., Cambodia and Peru.
