British Council – International Dimension Award 2020-2023

“The journey of receiving the ‘British Council International Dimension Award’ was extremely rewarding and educational. As a school, we got access to multiple new international learning platforms and we not only successfully and enthusiastically executed our IDA activities, but also went beyond that and participated in various global programs including the Global Read Aloud program, Microsoft Global Learning Connection and Global Solar Yatra.

As a school, our goal is to teach students experientially and under the ISA program we were able to use this technique to drive global learning for students on topics such as Gender Equality, Global Empathy, Cultural Appreciation and more. This prompted a very enthusiastic response from the entire Brainz team and the parents were also appreciative of these efforts and could recognize the value that these global dimension activities added to their children’s education.

Students came out of this experience with broader mindsets, a deeper appreciation for people and cultures from around the world, and developed sensitivity towards the issues and problems faced by their global peers.

I am confident that continued execution of these activities will greatly benefit our students and help the school fulfil its goal of providing Education for the 21st Century.”

New Year 2021 Wishes

It starts right now, today,
as we are all locked away in our houses,
looking out of our windows at the seasons changing.
In this moment of quiet and isolation,
something that we had forgotten creeps in,
and we start remembering how to live on this planet.

We hope that the new year brings to you light, happiness, health and peace!
The road ahead is still not easy, but we can see the light at the end of the tunnel now!
We wish you all a very Happy New Year 2021! 🌟💖😊

ISA Activity – Fight Like a Girl

Inspired by the ‘Fight Like a Girl’ movement, our 6th graders have been learning about the importance of gender equality. Using a Google Form they identified the prevelant stereotypes in their local community and their impact on the lives of men and women. By studying various published studies students understood the gender discrimination and stereotyping prevalant in the US and UK too. Students understood how discrimination is present in the movies, pop music and the news as well. They also highlighted the women who are breaking the glass cieling and shattering the society’s pre-conceived notions.
