VDJS STUDENTS CURRENTLY ON EXCHANGE
Arshiya Bansal and Sukhmanveer Kaur of Class X, Kasturba House are currently on a month long RS exchange at Cobham Hall, UK. The girls are enjoying their stay at Bligh House which gives them the opportunity to interact with other students from all across the world. Attending the classes, getting exposed to new pedagogical techniques and settling into the schedule of the host school is helping them expand their horizons. Through interactions with fellow students they are learning to understand and appreciate the similarities and differences in the cultural and educational milieu of different countries. The VDJS Round Square committee wishes to see more children availing such opportunities which make learning fun and experiential and offers them scope for better cultural immersion.
