MESSAGE & JOB DESCRIPTION OF ISA COORDINATOR

"Working as a team and not as individuals, we aspire to make a difference."

O.P. Jindal School, Raigarh, (CG), India, since its inception has been a progressive school and the introduction of internationalism in the curriculum has helped our students to reorient their minds towards acceptance and appreciation of differences among people and cultures.

The learners of this generation are an aware and smarter lot who are well-equipped with a vast stock of information. Thus it sometimes poses a challenge to the teaching community to engage them meaningfully. So, we constantly strive to give them hands-on experience so as to tap and channelize their potential to the best of their abilities.

O.P Jindal School, Raigarh, India, has already made a mark for itself in the field of international education with a number of collaborative learning projects and three consecutive ISA Awards. We partner with schools around the world to prepare our students to become global citizens so that they have a sense of belonging to the world community. Our international collaborations enable our students to communicate and collaborate across cultures.

In keeping up to the vision of our Honourable Principal Sir, we seek to broaden our international horizons and learn about the best practices from schools of similar nature. We tend to embrace the best practices of 21st century learning and offer our students an interactive, student-centered curriculum that will foster creativity, critical thinking and global citizenship. Through experiential global education, local community service and international travel, students will increase their global awareness, heighten their appreciation of diversity and learn leadership skills that will expand their ability to work in and contribute to an increasingly interdependent world.

I believe this will equip our students with the best set of skills besides enabling them to undergo experiential learning and grow as socially responsible citizens. We wish that our students embark on a cross-cultural journey of exploration and inquiry.
