It has been an exciting year for VBSIS as we took education beyond the classroom through the first Cultural Exchange programme to Nepal. Our apprehension soon vanished when the Principal, staff and parents of Rajarshi Gurukul school welcomed us with open hearts. Through this programme, we were not only able to explore various aspects of life in Nepal but also learn about their culture through a plethora of activities like cooking traditional cuisine, folk dances, songs and festivals of Nepal. Students of VBS loved every moment of their stay with students of Rajarshi Gurukul, Nepal. They found that this exchange program has been a memorable and life-changing experience and we hope that this relationship will strengthen the bond between both the schools.
This is what our parents of Veer Bhagat Singh School have to say about their experience of the host families:
The IGCSE results brought cheer for all students and staff at Veer Bhagat Singh International School by registering cent per cent success. We heartily congratulate our students for all that they have accomplished and wish them great success in the future.
