German Exchange


    Niilesh Ghosh of class 10A attended the International Youth Camps, or “Jungendkurse”, organized by the Goethe Institut to promote cultural and educational exchange among international student communities. The International Youth Camp was held in the town of Hinterzarten, in the state of Baden Württemberg, in southwestern Germany. Niilesh was one among the nine students who were chosen to represent India at the camp, which featured 97 German learners, hailing from 19 countries. Niilesh came back with a memorable experience and said “They serve as a vehicle into different cultures, allow us to gain new insights, and most importantly, they help us forge new friendships that often last a lifetime.”

    Virtual Exchange 2020-2021


    “If there is magic on this planet, it is contained in water.” — Loren Eiseley

    The German Exchange programme focusses on the magic element of the Blue Planet along with aspect of climate change. In the joint venture collaborating Birla High School, Sushila Birla Girls School (Kolkata, India) and the partner school Amandus Abendroth Gymnasium (Cuxhaven, Germany), students delve deep into various aspects of water segregated in various sub-projects. The current project tentatively focusses on the study of the Marine Habitats, socio-cultural impact on the locations and the ways of conservation. The researches would be done by both the partner schools in their respective locations and then a comparative analysis of the findings of the schools to be made to get a transcontinental view. The project has been designed in a such a way so that most of the collaborative activities can be carried on various virtual platforms, well acclimatised to the new normal pandemic situation.
