Internationalism is a core component of the SAI International curriculum. Since inception, the School has been actively working with various partner schools from across the globe on similar interests and issues to promote understanding and respect for each other’s culture and nurture students towards becoming global citizens.
Our effort for the same continues even during this period of lockdown. Students of SAI International School and SAI International Residential School (SIRS) are having regular virtual meeting with students and teachers from our Round Square Partner Schools, from across the globe.

An online collaborative activity was conducted by Going Global Club of SAI International on Friday, May 29, 2020 on Zoom Meetings with Junior & Senior High School of Kogakuin University from Tokyo, Japan and attended by SAI International Residential School Cuttack and Punjab Public School, Nabha, Punjab.

The topic for the session was “Art and Artists Across the World”. The students presented about various artists from their respective counties. Students from Japan spoke on contemporary singers and authors. While SAI International School presented on Sudarshan Patnaik the Sand Artist from Odisha and students of SAI International Residential School presented on the most celebrated painters of all times Raja Ravi Verma and the modern artist M F Hussain.

Later in the session the Indian students from SAI International did a live activity and taught how to write “Stay Safe Japan” ie “Surakshit Rahe Japan” in Hindi while the Japanese students taught how to write “Stay at Home” in Japanese. It was indeed a great learning and the interaction lead to building bonds of friendship.
It was a great exchange of cultures and beliefs.
