Connection classroom: Comilla Zila School always thinks one step ahead for assuring the highest learning facility for its students. On that note, in the year 2010, Comilla Zila School joined Connection classroom programme based on an enterprise for establishing an interrelationship among the students of some national and international schools of home and abroad (British school).Through the E-LEARNING system the students of Zila School get linked to that process under the kind observation of BRITISH COUNCIL. In Comilla 4 schools participated in that programme but like all the time zila school was the “SHOW STEALER”. With the help of some experienced teachers, students represented the culture, archeology, tradition of Comilla by their rejuvenate presentation. At the same time, the students also rocked the cultural show of SHHEED ABU JAHEED AUDITORIUM.

For that programme, students were selected from different classes who made presentation on different topics related to the city Comilla. Students of CZS showed their both technical and marital skill. A cultural function was organized by the authority to add a new dimension to this programme. That programme was a joint venture of two rival schools COMILLA ZILLA SCHOOL and NAWAB FAIZUNNESA GOVT. GIRLS’ SCHOOL. Whole programme was anchored by the students from both institution. Audience were amazed to enjoy that types of function for the first time at the present of two different schools. Principals from three different schools of BRITAIN were the chief guests. And the honorable Headmaster along with two asst. Headmaster were the special guests. And all the teachers from both day and morning shifts were present at that function. The whole programme was a little contribution to establish a friendship among the students of two different country. Actually, it’s a part of modern globalization process by which students from every corner can have the same view and same knowledge. And as a part of that motto, the programme of Connection classroom was a huge success.
