Global Dimensions

In keeping with our philosophy of Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam, we are a school that reaches out to the world- where Springdalians grow up to be responsible world citizens. The school has provided us with opportunities to connect with the wider world, whether through classroom interactions, Projects or via actual travel and exchange programmes.

This year we had the wonderful opportunity to explore the beauty of Seoul, South Korea, the delightful sights of Boston and New York in the United States of America, the pristine natural beauty and the traditional charm of Madrid and Segovia in Spain; and the German cities of Frankfurt and Stuttgart that allowed us to experience cultural diversity and understand world issues like Sustainable Development, human Rights and Peace contextually.

We will be welcoming a group of students and teachers of Heungdeok High School in January and look forward to our continued exchange visits to South Korea.

We also initiated a new partnership with Japan and hosted a group of 40 Japanese students of the Nishiyamato Gakuen High School, Nara. They glimpsed both the Indian cultural tradition and modernity through the presentations, interactive sessions and workshops. They were desirous of returning to India and we would love to host them again!

The Embassy of Finland invited a select group of Heads of Schools from all over India for a leadership program. Our Principal was a part of the delegation that visited Helsinki, Rovaniemi, the University of Lapland, Pilke - Science Center and several primary and senior secondary schools. It resulted in the start of an exchange for teachers and students with Finland.

The students attended the poignant commemoration of the International Day of Holocaust organized by the High Commission of Rwanda at the United Nations Information Centre. Their art installations conveyed the aspirations for Peace and were greatly appreciated.

Our links with Germany have blossomed and evolved through our partnership with the Goethe Institut and youth exchange programs.
