British Council

The Punjab Public School, Nabha has been associated with the British Council for almost a decade. The school has been the proud recipient of the prestigious International School Award (ISA) thrice in a row. The ISA has been an exhilarating experience for the staff and students. The British Council projects helped the students to imbibe the spirit of internationalism, enlarged their vision and prepared them as global citizens. The multifarious projects such as From Me to We, Manning the borders: The real life heroes, The musical bond of connectivity, Global crops, Head held high and a host of supplementary activities celebrating important International Days covered a wide range of subjects and exerted a far-reaching impact on the students. It was actually a process of learning by doing things in an innovative manner and gaining new ideas and concepts.
The participation of students in projects of international dimension helped them to get connected to the world at large by overcoming geographical, cultural, religious and lingual barriers. The ISA has indeed been an enriching journey promoting enhancement and expansion of intellectual and emotional barriers and strengthening the ethos of the school by making the optimum use of the potential of the students.
