Rajagiri Public School etched its name in glory in the ranks of the premier educational institutions of Kerala, by acquiring British Council accreditation for the second time running under The International School Award programme. Rajagiri Public School embarked on the ISA journey for the second time in 2009-2010. It was a proud moment for the school when the ISA coordinator Mrs. Ruby Antony received the award from the British Deputy High Commissioner, Southern India, Mr. Mike Nithavrianakis on 21 November 2010.

In a glittering ceremony held at his residence in Chennai, Rajagiri celebrated with schools from all across India, as the fruits of a year’s hard work towards adding an international dimension to the curriculum were acknowledged. The school’s contribution towards inculcating global consciousness amongst students was appreciated and as proof of its outstanding. It also plans to work toward fostering international understanding through collaborative projects with schools in England under the Global School Partnership programme.

In these changing times, schools across the globe have realized the need for embedding internationalism into the curriculum, which would make this world truly border-less. The International School Activity is a British Council Programme to bring the world to the classroom. Schools have to design their curriculum to accommodate international topics, collaborate with schools abroad, invite foreign guest speakers and celebrate multiculturalism. At the end of the year, their work is evaluated and successful schools receive a three year accreditation from British Council.

Acknowledging the achievement of Rajagiri Public School, it was chosen as the British Council School Ambasssador which would take the movement towards border-less learning even further by connecting classrooms across the world.
