|The global outreach program of our school goes a long way in promoting international learning and knowledge that propels students towards acceptance and understanding of an array of different cultures and communities. It brings self development and awareness leading to enhanced self confidence and self esteem. Opportunities are provided to host and extend Indian hospitality under exchange programs with foreign schools.|
|Twelve students accompanied by Ms. N.Saroj, Dean-Academics visited NASA, U.S. from 21 May - 30 May 2019|
Trip to John F. Kennedy Space centre’s visitor complex or K.S.C.V.C was a whole new experience, most of us were visiting the United States of America for the first time. This trip taught us a lot of things like to be responsible, disciplined and sincere and to mingle with people you have never met or known in person. The trip had some ups and downs like when we were stuck in Frankfurt Airport as our flight to Orlando U.S.A was cancelled because of technical issues, because of this delay we were rerouted to Boston which gave us an opportunity to explore the famous city too. When we finally reached Orlando it was indeed a sigh of relief for all of us. The next day we went to Islands of adventure, Universal Studios, Orlando it was marvellous and a whole new world to discover, full of fun, mystery and thrill and also it was the home to one of America’s best and fastest roller coasters,‘The Hulk Coaster’. Next day we visited Magical Kingdom of Walt Disney which apparently is the most magical place on Earth. The rides like Space Mountain, Big Thunder Mountain Railroad and The Splash Mountain. After the Disney Kingdom’s life experience, the next day we went to KSCVC in Cape Canaveral, we saw the Science on sphere, the Atlantis space shuttle, Saturn V rocket, the rocket garden, two Launchpads, the Vehicle Assembly Building (VAB) and many more iconic things, after KSCVC we went to the Cocoa Beach. Next day we reached Niagara Falls after a 7 hour long road journey and witnessed the might of the Niagara Falls extremely close to us. Next Day we departed for the most linguistically diverse city of the world New York. We visited New York’s One World Observatory and Times Square. We had a city tour where we saw- the Empire State Building, UN Headquarters, Trump towers, Brooklyn Bridge and many other things after which we went to the largest airport in the world, the John F. Kennedy International Airport, to depart back to India, we were happy to meet our family as well as sad as we were leaving our friends behind. This was a great trip and would love to have the same experience again.

|Twenty students and two teachers visited Lyon, France as part of a Student Exchange Programme from 01 May to 12 May 2019|
20 students and 2 teachers visited Lyon, France as part of a Student Exchange Programme with our partner school, Marias Casares, Lyon, from May 01st to May 12th 2019.
We were hosted by the french students in their houses and attended classes at school everyday. At school, both, the french and Indian students together, participated in various activities like Slam Poetry, Drama, Dance, Mehendi Application, Saree Tying, etc. Our students made a lot of new friends and were appreciated for their talent and exemplary behaviour by one and all. We also visited various tourist spots of Old and New Lyon. The Deputy Mayor of the town invited us to his office and made us honorary members of the school and community.
The host families were very welcoming and hospitable. They looked after every single need of our students, who took to the french lifestyle very easily.
We also visited the United Nations Headquaters and the CERN Nuclear Science Research Centre at Geneva, Switzerland. This was very educational as we learnt about the workings of the UN at close quarters.
The trip ended with a two day visit to the city of Paris, where we took in the sights of Paris, including seeing the painting of Mona Lisa at the Louvre museum and a climb to the second floor of the Eiffel Tower. After a boat cruise down the river Seine, we took a walk around the city and saw the various monuments by night. The stay in Paris ended with a walk down the Champs-Elysees in pouring rain and a dinner at the house of the Consulate (Education), Indian Embassy in France.
It was a tearful farewell for us and we have come back very enriched and appreciative of this opportunity given to us.
