BRITISH COUNCIL'S ISA PROGRAMME AT KCPS JAMMU
Effective from April 2014, we are a registered school member of British Council's International School Award (ISA) Programme. Under this programme, the learning content of the curriculum we follow as a school affiliated to the CBSE, India is given an international dimension. In other words, students learn the prescribed curriculum content through project work and in collaboration with other ISA Member schools spread across the globe.
The detailed project work we have undertaken during the academic year 2014-15 deals with varied themes such as 'Taking Care of Earth', 'Heritage: Our Priceless Legacy', 'Folk Tales Around the World', 'Celebrate Diversity', 'Step up to Sustain Natural Resources', 'Stand up for Animal Rights' and 'Poetry and its Forms'.
We are doing project work on these themes with ISA member schools in Argentina, Malaysia, Sri Lanka, Palestine, Oman and the UK.
Skipton Girls' High School, North Yorkshire, UK, is our global partner under 'Connecting Classrooms'. We have already shared 2 projects, namely, 'Cookery Show' (exchange of recipes) and 'Climate Change' through video presentations. The ISA Coordinators of KC Public School and Skipton Girls' High School are scheduled to visit each other's schools in 2015 under the Connecting Classroom Programme supported by the British Council.
