INTERNATIONAL SCHOOL AWARD

The International School Award is a prestigious Award accredited by British Council of India for curriculum based international work in the school. We are proud to mention that our school has received International School Award 2011-2013 in recognition of the international work and collaborative projects with schools from UK and other parts of the world. It is indeed a prestigious achievement for all of us. This award has provided a platform where students truly opened their ideas and developed a deeper understanding of the world around them. The whole concept of being a part of ISA has given our students critical thinking about global issues and thus they have become globally aware and responsible. Under the ISA, we prepared an annual action plan consisting of number of activities as per the guidelines given by the British Council and then implemented it as a part of the curriculum. The school has also established links with overseas schools to get the global dimension embedded into the teaching learning process and we leave no stone unturned in imparting universal education to our students to become the global leaders.

VIDEO CONFERENCE SESSIONS

Through regular video conference sessions students understand about the various teaching learning methodologies, learning methods and other activities taught in the schools across the world. These sessions help them form a bond and bring them closer to each other’s culture. Mostly the topics of discussions during all the Video conference sessions are pre planned but at times introductory sessions are also conducted. Apart from students, teachers also actively take part in the video conference sessions. They discuss in length about syllabus, teaching pattern, learning experiences etc. Thus it all helps in upgrading and bringing international standards in the curriculum.
