The British Council International School Award (ISA) is a benchmarking scheme that accredits schools as having an outstanding level of support for nurturing global citizenship in young people and enriching teaching and learning. The ISA was introduced in the year 2003 and since then the range of schools participating in this programme varies from the well-resourced private schools to government schools from rural areas and schools for the less advantaged communities.

�The portfolio submitted by your school has been approved and your school has been successfully awarded with the British Council International School Award for the period 2016-2019. The awards privileges constitute of an ISA trophy for the school, certificates to the school principal, ISA coordinator and up to 10 teachers, use of the coveted kite mark on all official stationery and invitation to attend the Annual British Council Awards Ceremony and associated seminars,� stated the correspondence.

Through online communications and student exchange programmes, the students of the schools interacted on seven topics including �Every child is special, Your country our country, Notes across the border, Learning geometry with food, Coping with tremor, 3 Rs � Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, How clean is my school�, with Glen Urguhart School, Massachusetts, USA, The Concord College, Guandong, China, The Caribbean School, Kathmandu, Nepal, Tajrobawi Girls High School, Afghanistan and the Regent�s International School, Bangkok, Thailand.

�The Council believes that across the world there is a growing recognition that scoring high marks in exams alone will not ensure success for young people. Only those who are able to collaborate, think critically, work inter-culturally and resolve issues creatively will take the world forward,� said a statement.

The schools and teachers involved in the ISA remain engaged with the British Council programmes beyond the assessment year.
