As a part of our Student Exchange Program since 2012, DLF Public School is hosting a group of 12 Italian Students under the Fifth Round of Wheel of Friendship. Students and teachers of DLF Public School will be hosting their Italian friends from July 17, 2016 onwards as guests in their homes.
The Italian students are going to attend a Short Term English Language Program where they would be learning English at DLF Public School besides learning Yoga, Indian dance, craft and sculpture. This would prove to be a cultural immersion program in every sense as the group will be experiencing the culture of India through an extensive schedule during their month long stay in India.
The Welcome Ceremony, fondly titled as ’Amicizia Continua – The Wheel of Friendship Continues’ was held on July 18, 2016 at the school’s very own Darbari Lal Auditorium. Delfites of Class IX, X and XI presented an exquisite performance while they laid the foundation of yet another Global Friendship at DLF Public School.
Principal Seema Jerath, who initiated and strengthed the bond with AFS Intercultural Programs and sowed the seeds of such global connects at DLF Public School since the year 2006, addressed the audience. She shared, ’AFS has found an innovative way to create a peaceful world and it is important that Education goes much beyond academics and hence we create opportunities for Delfites to grow as a person, as global citizens ’of’ the world ’for’ the world.’
Delfite Gul Mehra shared her unique, enriching and life-changing experiences after completing a year of Stay and Study Program in Italy.
Ms. Riddhima Chabbra, Specialist – School Relations & Short Term Programs, AFS Intercultural Programs graced the event as the special guest along with the host parents. The Italian students were introduced by their respective host families while they look forward to an exiciting month of connecting with the diverse cultures of the globe.
The event concluded with an exclusive award ceremony for the recognition of Class X CGPA 10 Achievers and Class XII 90+ Achievers Club 2015-16, the trailblazers of DLF Public School who have set the benchmark for the prospective scholars.
DLF Public School aims at creating many more such opportunities for the students to experience being a True Global Citizen!
