British Council confers ISA on MRV
MET Rishikul Vidyalaya received the British Council’s prestigious International School Award (ISA) in a glittering ceremony at New Delhi on 4th December 2014. This award was a result of consistent efforts of the school demonstrating that MRV has embedded internationalism in their curriculum. The International School Award is a benchmarking that accredits schools as having an outstanding level of support for nurturing global citizenship and enriching teaching and learning.
To prove evidence of internationalism, MRV developed an action plan based on the framework given by the British Council and implemented seven international projects and supplementary activities throughout the year. The project titles not only integrated various subject strands but also encompassed global themes. “Festivals of lights across the world” and “Poems come alive” were projects taken by the primary whereas the project “Freedom struggles across the globe” was taken up by the secondary. Our pre-schools had projects like “Endangered species” and “Agriculture across three countries” facilitated by their teachers. Creative activities like “Art appreciation” and “BEAMS,” based on nuclear energy theme was undertaken by the entire school. MRV also collaborated with overseas schools to create a rich learning experience for students through use of ICT and creative pedagogical practices. It had a positive impact on not just the students, but also the teachers and school in entirety.
The ISA programme was a leadership challenge and fostered teambuilding, innovation, and project management. MRV is accredited by ISA and can use the British Council’s kite mark logo on its publications and documents and can further extend the association through liaising with UK schools and thus opening new doors of learning to our global METizens.
