2020 has been a defining year for schools all over the world. Many have seen the closing of schools for over ten months as a huge loss in social time and learning. Indeed, this has been unfortunate for schools that did not have an IT infrastructure to support online learning. However, our experience at Indus has been rewarding. In some ways, Covid 19 has been a blessing.
Covid 19 has reinforced our purpose of education - to be prepared for all challenges, to be prepared for a future we do not know. We were able to recalibrate our vision and pivot. To be future-ready every student must be startup-ready, not in a narrow business sense only, but as a life entrepreneur. We are reminded of what the Nobel Laureate Muhammad Yunus of Bangladesh said, “All human beings are entrepreneurs.”
It is during this pandemic that, we launched an experimental model of the Indus Startup School. 200 students and 60 teachers from across our three schools are undergoing a twining programme - IB and entrepreneurship. Nearly 30 parent- mentors are supporting us in this great initiative.
Despite Covid 19, all three Indus Schools are in the first ten Best International- Day-cum-Boarding schools in India. Indus Bangalore is ranked #1 in the country for nine consecutive years. What a grand achievement! What an inspiration for everyone.Our achievements are a tribute to the legacy and creative-mindedness of principals, teachers, students, and parents.
We owe our gratitude to each one of them.
We wish everyone a Happy New Year, and an early turn to normal school.
With warm regards,
Being one of the top 10 schools in India, Indus Hyderabad focuses on creating global leaders; therefore, it educates the students with the values that students will cherish all their lives. Indus also gives the opportunity to students to participate in various competitions as part of co-curricular activities. I am very proud to be a part of Indus.
My daughter Lukyi has improved her English reading, writing and speaking skills. Lukyi has become more independent and is ready to face challenges. I believe that is because of the leadership skills that Indus International School, Hyderabad stresses on. My daughter has a positive approach to life and I thank Indus for instilling that quality in her.
Sending a child alone away from her home country and family for education was not an easy decision for us. But Indus International School, Hyderabad provided a comfortable and safe environment to my child and every other student from other countries. Indus focuses not only on education but also on preparing students to become global leaders.
