India and Korea have been friends with one another. And to Korean students, in India, Indus International Schools across the country have been a home. Ever since its inception, Indus International School Hyderabad has had several Korean students studying either as day scholars or residential students. To further strengthen this relationship and allow more Korean admissions, authorities from Indus Trust and Indus International School Hyderabad visited Seoul, Korea, earlier this week. This trip was accompanied by local Korean parents whose children study at Indus International School Hyderabad.
Some of the highlights of the visit include meeting the parents of the existing boarding Korean students and few parents of students who graduated from Indus International Group of Schools. Parents came from various parts of South Korea and participated in a discussion with the Indus authorities about the concerns they had. One of the Korean parent was chosen as the local guardian of the Korean students studying in India. Several prospect Korean parents who wish to enroll their children in the Indus International School Hyderabad also met the authorities at the Korea Study Abroad Fair 2018.
The team led by Mrs. Nuwairaa Pasha, Principal, Indus International Schoolalso visited the Chungnam Province where they met Mr. Kim Jichol, Governor of Education, who promised to help in the teacher and student exchange programme. Mr. Kim Jichol, also organized a visit for Indus at the Chungnam Samsung Academy. During their visit at the Chungnam Academy, Indus met the Senior Management Team to better understand the Korean education philosophy and help our Korean children at Indus to integrate better in our schools.
Towards the end of the trip, the Indian team visited the Embassy of India in Seoul where they met Ms. Sripriya Ranganathan, (Ambassador of India to the Republic of Korea), Mr. Satish Kuma Sivan (Deputy Chief of Mission) and Nayantara Dabariya (Second Secretary – Commercial and Information). Sripriya Ranganathan recommended establishing an Indus school in Korea, and also offered to help with the related survey and ground work along with the multiple other assistance such as disseminating information about Indus across institutions and organizations in Korea and connecting the team from India to several Korean associations.
Indus Hyderabad is proud to have over 20 Koreans on the campus. With the success of the visit, the school hopes to help in strengthening the friendship amongst our countries through the educational service that we offer to Korean students.
