The award was presented at the ceremony held in Mumbai on 19th November, 2015. Mrs. Jaya Ganguli, ISA Coordinator received the award on behalf of the school. The award has been bestowed upon the school for effectively implementing international ethos into its curriculum during the session 2014-15. The ISA team members were felicitated in the school Assembly. The International School Award scheme (ISA) by the British Council aims at imparting knowledge through collaboration with a partner school abroad. Every project involved was related to the curriculum.
The projects were:

Every project had a teacher in charge, who was involved from the inception to the execution of the activities related of the project. Some of the activities had collaborations with schools abroad. A dossier was compiled by incorporating all the projects and submitted to the British Council. The British Council International School Award recognizes commitment to developing the qualities of global citizenship in young people. It prepares young people in increasing their understanding of other countries and cultures and embedding international learning in the curriculum. The Award provides a platform for teachers to develop themselves professionally by adding an international dimension to their skills. It is available to any school, recognizing different levels of achievement in international work. To gain the award, schools submit evidence of the impact of international strategies and activities. Getting involved with partner schools makes teachers and pupils take the good practices of the partner school. It enables teachers to adopt the best teaching practices and standards in other countries. The ISA logo demonstrates that our school has espoused international practices in the institution and have wholeheartedly embraced progressive teaching tools being used globally. The logo can be used in all the publicity materials, stationery, certificates, websites, almanac etc.
