FOREIGN EXCHANGE PROGRAMME: The scope of education is no more confined in the locale of our country. It’s the age of globalization and we are living in an interconnected world. We must provide our students a wide horizon to look beyond and learn through various experiences. Therefore Choithram School North campus has added new vistas in its curriculum. We are happy to inform that now our school has been registered for the AFS student exchange program with foreign countries and connecting classroom programmes under British Council.
• AFS Student Exchange Program- It offers a broad range of programmes for the students in which they can go to different countries and experience an altogether new approach to study and learn through Inter-Cultural Exchanges. AFS is an international, voluntary, non-governmental, non-profit organization that provides intercultural learning opportunities to help people develop the knowledge, skills and understanding needed to create a more just and peaceful world. The essence of any AFS program is ‘Stay and Study’ in a different cultural setting.
• Connecting Classroom Programmes under British Council: 'In a rapidly changing globalised world, schools, teachers and young people need the skills and values to make sense of what is happening in the world around them. Connecting Classrooms professional development courses play an important role in supporting the development of an international learning community that equips educators to develop young people into global citizens.' These courses are designed to suit the educators’ needs with respect to the current level of experience in international learning and global citizenship. They support schools to teach global citizenship and international learning in the classroom, and help develop ICT and English skills. Online courses and face-to-face workshops draw on the experience and knowledge of education practitioners and experts from around the world. It provides an ideal opportunity for teachers to share experiences, increase knowledge, discover new ways of doing things, network and inspire one another.
