Our School had won the International School Award by British Council in the year 2010. This award is given for 3 years after the school had undertaken a number of activities, projects, exhibition, field trips related to Global Educational Themes.
We had to work for the re-accreditation of this award this year. The Principal, Sr. Melissa A.C and Co-ordinator Mrs. Silvia Benis oriented the staff and students about various activities to be undertaken and all responded positively. All were eager, enthusiastic, and determined to explore various possibilities in conducting various projects, by surfing the net, reading various books, interacting with different people from local and abroad etc. The various activities like assemblies, field trips, exhibition, preparation of charts and models, skits, songs and power-point presentations enthused everyone and gave a taste and feeling of internationalism experienced in our classrooms and school.
