The TES Secondary Group is a great source of support, ideas and inspiration and is the place to share best practice and get your questions answered by your peers. This is also where you go to debate the latest issues in secondary education.
The BBC, the British Council and the Commonwealth Secretariat are working together to bring Commonwealth Class to schools across the world. The project is aimed at 7 – 14 year olds and provides online teaching resources and interactive activities for schools to mark the run up to the 2014 Commonwealth Games.
We have recently launched a competition for schools to win the chance to work with a TV crew to make a film in their community. We are searching for the best stories from around the Commonwealth which share what it means to be a global citizen and which best reflect the Commonwealth values. For further details and how to enter, please see the link below:
The closing date is 31 January 2014.
The winning films will be shown on our website and they will be used as the basis for an online debate. We hold live online debates for schools around the Commonwealth to share their views on various topics such as education, protecting the environment and gender equality. Our next debate is on Thursday 12th December from 11 am - 1 pm. We'll be discussing the effect of sport on self-esteem and confidence. All you need to take part is an internet connection and an email address. For more information, please see our website:
We hope you find this useful and look forward to hearing from you soon!

**The closing date for this competition has now been extended until 21 February 2014.**
