"Bridging Continents: An Enriching Exchange with Our Friends in KRAKOW Poland"
"Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world." - Nelson Mandela
Today, we, the students of class 8, had the privilege of participating in an interactive session with a school in Poland. The engaging 40-minute exchange took place in the Boardroom and was a delightful experience. We shared fascinating insights about our respective curricula, school timings, holidays, cultural traditions, and favourite games. We discovered that their curriculum follows the International Baccalaureate (IB) framework, while ours adheres to the CBSE syllabus, highlighting intriguing differences in educational approaches and scheduling. The excitement of connecting online was palpable, and it was heartwarming to see the eagerness from both sides to continue our exchange by sending postcards through post. This enriching session not only broadened our understanding of global education but also fostered a sense of camaraderie and curiosity about different cultures.
