It is a pleasure to introduce the very first edition of our school newsletter which provides our school community a brief gist of the various activities, events and happenings at the school. We are also proud to announce through this newsletter some of the ‘you said it, we did it’ improvements in the school. We are now an IB World School and for the first time in Visakhapatnam, we are introducing IB Diploma in the academic year 2020-21. Another exciting decision was to offer grade 1 in both Daspalla and Seethemadhara Early Years Campus starting 2020-21.
This year was a year of global learning opportunities for our students. Global Campus picked up very well during the year with students engaging online with other Nord Anglia students around the globe. To foster an innovative culture, the school pioneered the NAE – MIT STEAM Challenge programme, which culminated in the Regional MIT STEAM Festival 2020. Our teachers are gaining from the NAE collaborative learning both online on the Nord Anglia University and face to face sessions of the Middle Leadership programme. We believe these opportunities help our students to transcend beyond ‘learning of facts’ to explore the latent potential of their imagination and thoughtfulness.
As we are in the examination season, please join me in wishing our students ‘Good Luck’ for their examinations.
