It was a matter of great pride for nine students of Guru Harkrishan Public School, India Gate to be a part of Indo German School Exchange Programme which started in the month of October 2017. Initially the students hosted the students of Ricarda Huch Gymnasium, Krefeld, Gremany during the first phase of the programme. German students visited our school, attended the classes and visited important places of Delhi to learn about our culture, cuisine and lifestyle. During the second phase of SEP, nine students alongwith school Principal Mrs. D.K. Dhingra and Harinder Kaur(PGT) visited Krefeld from 11 March to 20 March 2018. During their stay with the host families, they appreciated the German culture. They developed an idea about the Education system followed in Germany by attending their classes during the stay. While interacting with German students and spending time with their parents/siblings, the students got first hand information about their lifestyle and mannerisms. The students of both the countries thoroughly enjoyed the enriching, informative and entertaining experience.
It provided the young, curious and motivated minds an opportunity to immerse in each other's cultures. It promoted the reciprocal understanding and interpersonal relationship taking the young students on the path of becoming global citizens.
