240 schools honoured for global touch to curriculum

MUMBAI: As part of their Connecting Classrooms programme, the British Council felicitated nearly 240 schools from across India in the city on Monday to recognize their work in bringing an international dimension into the regular curriculum. Fifteen schools from Mumbai / Thane region were awarded for their outstanding work in various projects and modules for the International School Award (ISA).
“At British Council, we believe that young people need to move out of the isolated world, so we support them to get involved in activities on a diverse platform,” said Rittika Parruk, assistant director (schools), British Council. Among the various modules provided for schools, this programme reaches close to 1,500 institutes across the country. UK Aid, along with British Council, works with school-to-school partnerships where schools are introduced to institutes in UK and other countries. “We want to promote exchange of ideas in a global context through simple exercises. We help schools bring an international dimension to teaching as well,” added Parruk. British Council has built an online course, which can be used by schools free of cost.
