DPS, Maruti Kunj Receives

             British Council International School Award

 

As a recognition for its year long pursuit for providing its students international dimension and global exposure in education, Delhi Public School, Maruti Kunj received the coveted International School Award (2015-2018). The Award Ceremony was hosted by British

Council on 8th July,2015 at Hotel Kempinski Ambience, New Delhi.

It was a momentous occasion where the school Principal, Mrs Rachna Pandit along with the school ISA Coordinators, Mrs Tishya Mukherji and Mrs Aparna Manaktala received the Award for successfully accomplishing the educational objectives set by British Council.

It has always been the school's endeavour to impart quality education to its students and equip them with essential skills to emerge as responsible global citizens. Under the ISA initiative, the students of the school collaborated with partner schools from different countries like UK, Pakistan, Mongolia etc and shared knowledge and views on different global issues through technology based mediums like Skype sessions, British Council Connecting Classroom’s Project Spaces, e-mails etc.

The school witnessed a colourful bonanza of activities on the themes like Tribes of the World, Toon Mania, Food Habits of Teenagers round the world etc. The ISA activities carried out throughout the session involved the participation of all the students and staff members.

Through the ISA activities, the students learnt various values like inter-personal skills, team spirit, cross cultural acceptance and global citizenship. The ISA journey brought about a great value addition in the lives of students, preparing each one of them to keep abreast with the rapidly changing world.

The International School Award is yet another milestone in the school's journey towards excellence.

 

INTERNATIONAL SCHOOL AWARD­- AN INITIATIVE SPONSORED BY BRITISH COUNCIL

It is widely accepted that the traditional chalk and talk model of content-oriented teaching cannot adequately prepare young people for the future. We need to shift focus emphasis on value-oriented experiential learning. To counter the challenges that the schools across the world are grappling with, a holistic and promising ISA approach is a solution to most of our issues.

We, Delhi Public School, Maruti Kunj, are privileged to be registered with ISA British Council for the session 2014-2015. We drafted and proposed an annual ISA Activity Action Plan and we are proud to have received an approval for the same from British Council.

Key takeaways:

  • ISA is a leadership challenge and fosters teambuilding, innovation, and project management.
  • Working on the Action Plan and the Portfolio encourages collaboration and critical thinking. The staff is motivated to improve teaching standards in the schools.
  • Pupils are taught using a methodology that embeds global themes in the curriculum.
  •  ISA gives context to practice new skills in Information & Communications Technology (ICT) and pedagogy in a safe and structured manner.
  • After registering for ISA, we can attend briefings and workshops, join online community that gives a platform to all to exchange ideas.
  • Once the school receives the award, the head teacher and the ISA teams receive certificates that acknowledge their outstanding contribution as educational professionals.

How accreditation has a positive effect on the school, pupils and teachers?

  • Opens a window to other countries and cultures, giving teachers and pupils a new outlook on the world.
  • Prepares pupils with skills for life and work in a global economy, opening their eyes to new opportunities.
  • Gives the school a fresh and attractive identity, and a new globally conscious ethos.

The school has initiated a plethora of activities as approved by the British Council. All the three wings of the school are bustling with excitement, zeal and zest, working in unison to achieve our objective to be the proud recipients of the International School Award.

Under the able mentorship and guidance of our Principal, Mrs Rachna Pandit, we hope to accomplish our mission and bring glory to our school.
