CA DR. BIJAYA KUMAR SAHOO
Chairman, SAI International School
SAI International School always remains firmly committed to venture beyond excellence. We have Internationalism as a practicing culture to enable the youth to emerge as confident global citizens and contribute worthily thereby enriching the world. We aim to deliver an international infrastructure with world class facilities and educational program beyond the limits of the academic curriculum.
Our goal is to provide our diverse student body with exceptional education, instilling in young people a love of learning, the ability to think independently, and the confidence to pursue their dreams and goals. We are an International School rooted in Indian “values” and we aim to provide an education that will help the children to grow up to being Global citizens.
The School was conferred upon the International School Award for 2010-2013 for its exemplary work and we are applying for re accreditation this year. We were also awarded with the GSP Honours in 2012. We have been part of the CPD (Continuous Professional Development) program of the British Council and our teachers have been accredited in different courses like GTA and Peer to Peer besides several face to face and online courses. Our students have won the ‘Paint the World’ contest, the prestigious British Council calendar competition, to be the first and ninth amongst hundreds of entries, the world over, to be a part of the twelve best in the world, which featured in the British council Calendar of 2011.
We organized the mammoth National event “Young Global Citizen’s Summit”, in which more than 500 students and teachers from across the country stayed with us for three days and participated in several workshops conducted by UK organizations like Royal Shakespeare, World Voices, BBC world class, Tony Blair Faith Foundation, 100 words, Teach A man to Fish etc. This year we held the first International Model United Nation Conference- SAI-MUN under the aegis of UNIC. It was the first MUN in India that had delegates visiting from five countries.
Global School partnership is another annual Global program which has allowed many teachers and students to visit our partner Schools in the UK. Reciprocal visits from the partner Schools have resulted in productive cultural exchange, promoting the cause of binding variety with a common purpose.
As partners of the British Council and the Ambassador School of our State we also have been facilitating several programs in our local area. International dimension is very much amalgamated to the School curriculum and ethos.
