Mr Sanjay Wadvani, the British Deputy High Commissioner, East India, visited SAI International School on Monday 18 January 2010.
Taking time out of his busy schedule, Mr Wadvani spoke to Class XI students about the importance of embracing cultural diversity to fully understand people they meet either in business, education overseas or general life. Mr Wadvani added that it is only through this kind of understanding we will overcome prejudice and create a far more tolerant society to live in.
Ms Sudeshna Chatterjee, Trade and Investment Advisor for British Deputy High Commission, Kolkata, was also present and agreed with Mr Wadvani the work done by the Class XI Commerce students in the Achievers International project was exemplary and would prove invaluable to them in their future careers.
Achievers International is an internet based enterprise project in which a group of students and their teacher form a business. They are then partnered with a similar group in another country and import and export products with each other to try and make a profit.
Our SAI-oneers have partnered with Winterbourne International Academy, Bristol, UK and will be exporting traditional handicrafts of Orissa. In return, Winterbourne International Academy will export children’s books to ourselves.
