Excellence is achieved through high intention, sincere effort, intelligent direction, skilful execution and the vision to see obstacles as opportunities. The British Council International Award (ISA) is a benchmarking scheme that accredits schools as having an outstanding level of support for: Nurturing global citizenship in young people and Enriching teaching and learning. The prestigious International School Award is the fruit of our hard work; covering seven different international activities on the framework laid out by the British Council, in the span of session 2018-19. These activities covered diverse themes, best suited for our school and students, giving us an opportunity to connect to schools sharing the same thoughts and passion. We had conducted these seven ISA activities across the school right from Pre-Primary level to grade X. To name them: Explore the World by Pre Primary Students, Festival Delight by Grades 1 & 2, Glimpses of the world by Grades 3 to 7, Olympics – A Connectivity by Grades 5 & 6, Climatic Zones by Grades 7 & 8, GMUN by Grades 8 to 10, and Exploring the environment by Grades 9 & 10.
Through these ISA activities, the Principal Mrs.Madhu Narayan and the International Coordinator – Ms.Sharmila Anilesh along with the teachers successfully collaborated with 12 international schools across the world which speaks volumes about the enthusiasm with which we carried these activities forward. We collaborated with schools in U.K, U.S., Australia, Taiwan, Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Egypt, Singapore and Pakistan. We are now accredited International School Award recipient, honoured to be acknowledged for our international dimension in curriculum. This award stands as recognition of the international standards of education adopted in Gopalan International School, Bangalore.
