DLF Public School further strengthens the Indo-Russian Wheel of Friendship programme in its 4th Round of Student Exchange Program by hosting a group of 11 students and 2 teachers from Russia. Students and teachers of DLF Public School welcomed their Russian buddies from March 23 – April 15, 2016. Through this yet another international exchange programme, students were engaged in experiential learning about the culture and education system of India.
While students learnt to cook under the DLF Gourmet Club, sang Indian Songs, danced to the Indian beats they also made lasting bonds as they stayed in Indian homes as a part of their families and received love and warmth from their Indian counterparts!
As a surprise initiative, the Russian students and teachers conducted an invigorating hour long assembly on April 8, 2016 which was an energetic medley of Russian traditional dances and songs. They presented a brief report of their region Cheboksary, it’s history, amenities and it’s enchanting views. Russian Principal Ms. Eliana addressed the assembly with a touching note that “Indians opened the gates of their homes and hearts for us!”
Together the students trained under the expert mentoring of DLF teachers presented a magnificent performance on the last day of their visit. The entire DLF Family shared their experiences of this extraordinary bond created in a matter of 15 days. An overwhelmed parent commented “I gave two of my kids to DLF Public School, but now I have three! I now know Russia in a completely different light than what I thought I knew about it earlier. I am so thankful to the DLF Public School!”
Principal Seema Jerath complimented as she mentioned, “India is different from Russia in every aspect still we feel that we have known them all our life. This was an unmatched kind of experience!” Executive Director, Dr. Mrignaini powers her thought of creating Global Citizens at DLF Public School by providing more such opportunities to find a new dimension to learning historical, cultural and geographical facts and features of different countries.
