We believe and practise, that creativity is the #1 competency to succeed and survive in a world characterised by a permanent state of volatility, uncertainty, complexity and ambiguity. This is not going to change; in fact it will increase with each passing year. Our second belief is that, to stay ahead of the curve, leaders must create and not compete.
As a result, the design thinking process is taught as a part of the school curriculum; and every teacher is also a Teacher Adviser. They meet small teams of students once every week, and mentor and teach them competencies of the head, heart and mind. We have now taken one more step in our creative journey from this session: replacing the traditional Students’ Council by the Innovation Council.
The primary role of the Innovation Council is to create an innovation culture on the campus that is student-led. We believe that this will be a most effective way to sustain innovation, as well as develop an innovation mindset.
With warm regards,
Being Australian, learning about other cultures was always important to me. Indus International School is a very multi-cultural place, and that's why I chose to study there. The curriculum is well-designed and hence prepares us for life. By joining the extra-curricular activities, I was able to develop my self-confidence and make new friends.
I joined Indus International Bangalore in class VI and completed my XII here. The friends, memories and values I imbibed in myself will be something that I will cherish for a lifetime. I have learnt a lot from this school and I feel proud to be a part of it. A big thanks to our CEO and Principal who's great leadership qualities led to the upbringing of the school.
My journey at Indus began in April 2015 when I was enrolled as a term boarder. IB at Indus was a completely different experience when compared to an average IBDP education. At Indus, equal focus is there on whole education as on academics. The whole aspect of leadership has helped me become better at time management, social interaction, communication and resource management. We were given experiential learning opportunities that helped us understand and emulate the core values of love, empathy, discipline and respect. I can say that IBDP education at Indus has definitively made me locally rooted but globally competent.
