RUSSIAN CULTURAL EXCHANGE PROGRAMME 13TH OCT – 19TH OCT 2018
Greenway Modern School regard education as the key to success and commit resources in nurturing our new generation Education helps to unleash people’s potential and should enhance their virtues as well as competitiveness. For the second consecutive year a group of Greenwanians along with the Vice Principal Mr. Tarun Sachdeva and two teachers Mrs. Yogyata Mathur and Ms. Mamta were the part of this exchange programme to Russia.
This cultural program was to foster mutual understanding and promote educational and cultural exchange between India & Russia. It provided opportunity to the students for experiencing different culture and broaden their horizons as well as participating teachers. It was also a good platform to exchange views with fellow educators, share experience and foster partnership. This time the teachers Mrs. Yogyata Mathur(Biology) and Ms. Mamta (Social Science) got the opportunity to give lecture to Russian students along with culture exchange. Lectures caused a huge interest and Russian students had successfully overcame the language barrier too. Our students from classes 7 – 10 participated in sports competition, arts competition and even got opportunities to learn their tradition, Russian dance etc. In this globalized era, people who are able to adjust to different environment embrace changes and celebrate diversities and are able of rising to the challenges ahead.
“You can learn more by travelling a 1000 miles than by reading a 1000 books”
The exchange program allowed students to travel and meet people from different cultural, religious and socio-economic backgrounds and develop a greater understanding of diversity in the process. They also learnt to cultivate positive relationships with others, appreciate a broader perspective and acquired the knowledge and skills for participating in multi- cultural societies and by applying what they have learnt. They can not only save a better future for their own, but for the community, the country and the world for all. Vice Principal Mr. Tarun Sachdeva thanked Russians for their unconditional support for the exchange programme that lasted one week and for devoting their time and efforts for putting together days of exciting and enriching activities for students and teachers.
