§ Sir E. Boyle
My Department is in regular consultation with many bodies, including educational and teachers associations, which help to further U.N.E.S.C.O.'s work in this country. The Council for Education in World Citizenship, which receives an annual grant from the Ministry, has co-operated especially closely with U.N.E.S.C.O. in this particular matter.
Among the activities directly undertaken by my own Department have been the publication of a pamphlet called The Schools and the Commonwealth, and the holding of a course for training college lecturers on teaching for international understanding. In addition a reference list is distributed annually to local education authorities and schools giving information about sources of material on international organisationsand affairs and drawing attention to such special occasions as United Nations Day and World Children's Day.
