A cluster of four schools in Carmarthenshire have been linked with a school in Cuttack in India through the ‘Connecting Classrooms’ with the British Council.
Cuttack is one of the oldest cities of Orissa.
It is located in the eastern Indian state of Orissa around 30km off Bhubaneswar. Situated on the delta formed by the rivers Mahanadi and Kathjuri, the city has such strategic position as it serves as the main base for commercial activities.
Cuttack is known for its handicrafts eg an amazing variety of Ikat fabrics and appliqué work. Cuttack is also famous throughout India for its exquisite silver filigree work. There are a large number of sightseeing places in Cuttack, for instance, Barabati Fort, Chandi Temple and Kadam Rassol Dargah.
