In a steadily shrinking world, Exchange Students build on their knowledge of each other’s country, people, culture, and language, and acquire the global awareness and skills that are so important to living and working successfully in the 21st Century.
At SCAD World School, we shall prepare our Middle School and Senior School children to participate in student exchange programmes. Our exchange programmes shall be mainly of two types:
- School to School Partnerships in which students will conduct class projects in collaboration with another class of their partner school in another country. They will exchange notes/ their findings, their ideas on video conferencing and email. Students may, at a later stage , even travel down to their partner schools to present their projects.
- Student Exchange Programmes which will allow students to travel to schools in other parts of the world. Exchange Students will spend time studying in their partner schools and live with their foreign friends. This will give them opportunities to learn other languages, and understand cultures that are alien to them. Students will also get opportunities to host their exchange buddies from abroad which will give them a chance to be ambassadors of their own country and culture.
To enable these exchanges and many more, SWS shall initiate interactions with many global organizations, some of them being The United Nations Cyber School Bus, British Council Schools Online, The International Award For Young People (IYAP), The Swedish Embassy- New Delhi, Alliance Française de Chennai, AISSEC and AFS.
