The British Council offers the International School Award (ISA) as an accreditation framework for schools to record and evaluate their international work and embed it into the curriculum and whole school ethos. We are proud to mention that the school has won the prestigious International School Award (2016-19) second time in a row. It is a great achievement for a school that strives to maintain a global outlook and international perspective as a part of its curriculum. The whole concept of being a part of ISA has given our students critical thinking about global issues and thus they have become globally aware and responsible.
As part of the ISA action plan, the school planned and executed seven different projects for students of different age groups. The students within the school were involved in the international framework, collaborative curriculum-based work and year-round international activities. The volume of work and the student-teacher involvement was truly commendable. We are extremely proud of this award as during the process of accreditation, the exposure provided to the children, not only widened their spectrum of learning but also developed a complete global outlook in them and, gave each one of them a remarkable sense of achievement.

The Model United Nation Conference enables the young learners to focus on issues of International concern for co-operation and developing the art of peaceful negotiation. It is a step towards developing global awareness among students.
The MUN conference on 5 & 6 August, 2016, at Queen Mary's School, Model Town, was a simulation of the functioning of various committees of United Nation. It was a well organized event with the students' enthusiastic participation. It helped to home various skills like public speaking, researching, leadership etc. It was an enriching experience!
