The students of GJS partnered with Gheorghe Titeica National College from Romania to add an international dimension to their curriculum. The interactions were in the form of presentation exchange, Project exchange, emails and blogs. Working on the various projects undertaken gave us an opportunity to relive our talents and potentials that lay innate and dormant for a while. Our students too were enthusiastic about coming to school as each day unfolded new and exciting activities that not only increased their knowledge and understanding of various concepts but also gave them an exposure to rich learning experiences that helped them to extend their horizons beyond the textbook and bring international dimension into their curriculum. Students were able to connect to the wider society through various programs like field trips, visit to zoo, visit to cotton industry and sericulture centre, conducting a fancy dress and creating awareness for preserving our natural resources. The students have developed a desire to learn more about the traditions and culture of other nations. It has also helped the students to understand the global issues that need to be attended to.
The ISA journey has helped the whole school community to develop a global and an international outlook and perspective. It has given the institution a fresh identity. The British Council International School Award is a small step in creating global citizens and playing a role in bringing humanity together if adopted by a large number of schools across the world.
The awards ceremony is the culmination of the ISA journey. ISA awards are a recognition and celebration of exemplary practices of internationalism in schools – in both the curriculum and values held by students and teachers.
