K.R. MANGALAM WORLD SCHOOL CROSSES BORDERS
|“Knowledge is one treasure that which grows only when it is shared.”|
Fostering creative leadership, learning and empathy between cultures is the main purpose of organising International exchange programmes. K.R. Mangalam World School, G.K-II believes in expanding its horizons and such initiatives taken up by the school are the stepping stones for changing dreams into reality. Keeping up with the same, the school organised an Indo –German exchange programme in collaboration with St. Emmeram’s Realschule, Munich, Germany.14 students and 2 teachers visited St. Emmeram Realschule, Munich, Germany from 6th June 2015 to 19th June 2015.
Various activities were planned for the Indian students by the host school. It was interesting to see their way of learning. Their teaching methodology was based on Audio Visual aids and it was a more practical based learning . In the Art Class, the Indian students thoroughly enjoyed making Pretzel and a Beer mug with wood. The activities conducted in the physical education class and English class made one thing very clear, accepting cultures and valuing the differences is diversity.
The Indian students visited Munich Centre, Lake Chiemsee and its castle, Skyline Park, Soccer stadium Allianz arena, BMW factory and KZ Dachau. The rides in the Skyline Park were indeed a thriller and the BMW factory was a roller- coaster for the students. The visit to KZ Dachau (the Concentration Camp) was a face to face with the terrible history of Germany’s past.
The Indo-German exchange program was undoubtedly a great learning experience for the students.
