Yet another foot in the global arena in 2019 for SAI International School for certified membership of AFS. Apart from the teachers and students of SIS completing the AFS workshops in Inter Cultural Learning and UN Sustainability Goals toward Global Citizenship, the school also has taken up an AFS Membership and will be offering the students, short-term and long-term programs which includes student exchange programs and hosting opportunities with participating AFS Member schools abroad. These programs will be launched at the beginning of every academic school year and parents will have the opportunity to enroll their child accordingly.
These programs will not only inspire students to become active global citizens who will be prepared to communicate, collaborate and lead across differences that tackle the world’s greatest defining challenges, transforming them into true global change makers but participating in AFS programs will help with a child’s global competence, the “power skill” young people require to make their impact on an increasingly diverse world and global economy.
Students will now have the opportunity to live with a family in another country. Enjoy different traditions. Take time to appreciate value and deepen their insights about other perspectives, cultures, religions and important world issues. They will be able to go to school in their host country, learning new languages and finding ways to connect with people from other cultures and backgrounds- skills that they take back home and use for a lifetime.
The AFS experience allows kids to discover new things about themselves and their place in the world while turning challenging situations into valuable opportunities to grow and become more mature.
