Global Partnership

The global partnership program seeks to link our school with schools around the world at different class levels and in different subjects. Through the program we hope to offer student enhanced learning opportunities for a holistic education while exposing them to a wide range of global thoughts, ideas and ideals. The program will bond the school involved who share similar goals of integrating a global dimension into the curriculum. Through the program we hope to build bridges of friendship. Though miles may separate the schools, we can work together, exchange ideas and develop a vibrant relationship. Respecting and appreciating the culture and diversity of each other’s country while gaining a deeper insight into lifestyles, traditions, customs as well as a study of economic, social and political factors will form a major part of the partnership.

The successful beginning with Lampton School, Hounslow, Middlesex, UK has given a boost to this program, even though the students exchange is a tiny fraction of the vast scope of global partnerships. Pupils will work with the staff on the days allocated to each class from Class 3 to 8. The British Council (Mumbai and UK) have been supportive and encouraging.
