The World is a book and those who do not Travel read only one page. - St. Augustine.

St. Mark’s Girls Sr. Sec. School believes in the above mentioned thought and has always promoted travelling among the students through student- exchange programs. In these pandemic times, since physical movement is not possible, a project based on virtual tour was initiated.

An online project named, “Virtual Tour of my country” between Russia, Slovakia, Indonesia, Singapore and our school was started in the month of February 2021, so that the students can know more about these countries through virtual presentations shared. Interesting facts on geography, climatic conditions, important places to visit, cuisines, culture and festivals etc were discussed.

On 19 March, Russia, Slovakia, and Singapore presented their presentations on Zoom and all the others viewed it with enthusiasm. It was followed by the presentations given by Indonesia and India on 27 March. Overall, it was an informative and interactive project. Life is short and the world is wide and one should always make use of any opportunity to gain knowledge about this beautiful world.

The only limit to our realisation of tomorrow will be our doubts of today. Franklin D. Roosevelt.

St. Mark’s Girls Sr. Sec. School believes that learning is not limited to books. Sharing ideas and bringing those ideas together to create new, also teaches you enough.

Our student participants of the online project - Mythical Lores, took initiative to reach to their counterparts from Hungary and Greece to discuss further the steps to be taken to complete the e-chain story that have been started by them. In the process, there are bound to be queries and doubts which have to be clarified, time and again. This meeting cleared doubts regarding how to go further with the characters and the illustrations etc, required to weave the story. The meeting was held online to connect to the student-participants and the teacher in charges of Obudai Arpad Gimnazium of Hungary and 4th Primary School, Ymittou, Athens, Greece on 12 December 2020.

Friendship is a two way street and not a one way road. And in this two-way street, when friends stop by and share their ideas, something creative and useful comes out.

Thinking and working on these lines, some students from Classes 10 and 11 of St. Mark’s Girls Sr. Secondary School are involved in a project called - ‘Mythical Lores’. The idea is to share the mythological stories of their own country as well as read the stories of other countries, and then weave a new story. They are interacting with friends from four different countries - France, Hungary, Greece and Malaysia.

An interactive video meet was arranged on Saturday, 28 November 2020 with the French members of the project from the school Lycee Elie Cartan to understand the way the project will go ahead to culminate into an e- story.

THIS CONFERENCE WAS BETWEEN THE PARTNER SCHOOLS OF AN ONLINE PROJECT TITLED, 'MYTHICAL LORES'.

The most beautiful discovery friends make is that they can grow separately without growing apart.” - Elisabeth Foley.

And what best, even staying miles apart they come together for a mission to create an environment to share each other’s culture with the help of mythological stories of their own nation and learn about others as well.

The teachers of St. Mark’s Girls Sr. Sec. School, Ms. Anjali Handa, and Ms. Arpita Dutta have taken initiative to collaborate with the teacher - educators of different countries, to run an online project on mythology, titled ‘Mythical Lores’. Students and teachers are presently involved in this ongoing project that started in the month of October. An online meeting was organized to discuss how to proceed with the said project. Teachers from France, Greece, Hungary, and Malaysia participated in a discussion with our teachers on Wednesday, 4 November 2020.

It is true that learning is not bound to only books. Sharing information also is a great source of learning and when you find the right group of people who challenge and inspire you; spending time with them, to share knowledge will further enhance you.

"Memories are made when gathered around the table".

It is perceived that the current COVID-19 pandemic is causing deglobalisation and people-to-people distancing. Though virtual communication can’t substitute real people to-people relationships, it can still keep us connected.

With this thought, a virtual reunion was organised recently for ASEF partners by our teachers, Ms. Anjali Handa and Ms. Arpita Dutta connecting educators from different Asian and European countries. It was a pleasure to see Leonie Nagarajan, Director, Education Department, Asia-Europe Foundation (ASEF) as well as other educators from Singapore, Hungary, France, Slovakia and Italy.

From discussing about how this pandemic has affected the different countries to the policies formulated by their respective education departments to help the youth to discussing general routines and about the new things learnt, the short friendly meet brought back memories of the good old times that were Corona-free.

Strength lies in our differences, not in similarities. - Stephen. R. Covey.

It is essential to recognize, accept, respect and celebrate this diversity. It is also true that no culture can exist if it attempts to be exclusive. The Asia-Europe Foundation (ASEF) has been relentlessly working to bring the people of Asia and Europe together to realise the importance and reap the benefits of multiculturalism and share ideas.

A webinar was organised by ASEF on 16 July, 2020 to discuss the Asia-Europe relations with Ambassador Tommy KOH, ASEF’s first Executive Director, a lawyer and a diplomat. He was also Singapore’s former Permanent Representative to the United Nations. He emphasised on multi-culturalism and multi-lateralism as today’s demand. He also discussed the role of ASEF and ASEM in addressing common global challenges. He was in conversation with Mr. Lawrence Anderson, Director, ASEF’s Communications Department.

The world is in trying times because of the ongoing pandemic and physical meetings are not possible today. He laid stress on the use of technology to continue to bring young minds of Asia and Europe together again because everyone needs someone to learn from and share ideas with.

Ms. Anjali Handa and Ms. Arpita Dutta of St. Mark’s Girls Sr. Sec. School attended the webinar to understand the importance of strengthening social ties in creating a better understanding between the people of Asia and Europe.

“True friends stay with you no matter the distance or time that separates you from them.” ― Lance Reynald, Pop Salvation.

As the world faces extraordinary challenges amidst the Covid-19 pandemic, this cannot weaken the bonds of friendship built by Student Exchange Programmes. Our students of Class XII are still connected and interacting with their Dutch partners of Christelijk College Nassau-Veluwe, Harderwijk, Netherlands whom they had first met in Netherlands in May 2017 and then, hosted in December 2019.

It has been rightly said by Martin Luther King Jr. - “We may all have come on different ships but we are all in the same boat now.”.

The year 2020 has brought a lot of hardships with itself, majorly being the COVID-19 impacting thousands of lives throughout the globe, both physically as well as mentally. Today, the students, part of the Indo-French delegation, had a merry video session with their buddies. From discussing about how this pandemic has affected the two countries to the policies formulated by their respective governments to help the society to discussing general routines and repercussions of this pandemic. Also, the session was filled with laughter, nostalgia, love and care for each other, humming to Indian melodies, discussing about the new things learnt and sheer usage of the phrase “We wish we all could be together”.

The fact is, we all are. Yes, if the situation would not have been such, we wouldn’t have had met online, we would have been sitting together, clinking glasses and made memories but since we are here now we are not apart, we are still together, at a halt, fighting each day and conquering and trying to make things normal. One day, we will meet and surely it would be in a “Corona-free environment”.

Namaste to all !

Nam – as – te.


Three syllables and one simple word that has the potential to bring peace between peoples, peace between nations and most importantly, peace within ourselves.

Namaste is about creating and honoring connection and exuding respect.

In times of the Corona virus scare, the Indian Namaste is becoming increasingly popular. It is a noncontact form of greeting, as opposed to hugging or shaking hands.

The traditional Indian Namaste means respect and love for the person we greet.

It is heart warming to receive greetings and well wishes from our partners in Slovakia, France and Hungary as the world struggles to come to terms with this deadly outbreak.

Praying that we all emerge out of the current situation strongly with good health.

“Friendship is the only cement that will ever hold the world together.” – Woodrow T. Wilson.

That is the idea behind a Student Exchange Programme, making new friends across the world.

The lockdown cannot weaken the bonds of friendship created by Student Exchange Programmes. Our students are still connected in these adverse conditions with their global partners on different social media platforms. Here is a group of students of Class XI interacting with their German partners of Weber Schule, Eutin whom they had hosted in January, 2020.

Friendship is not a big thing.....it’s a million little things, that make the world a better place!!!

In the midst of the Covid 19 pandemic faced by the world where countries are at great risk, the students of our school from Class XI and XII - Radhika Gupta, Mehak Sharma, Anika Maniam, Ishika Sachdeva connected with students from Austria, France, Hungary, Italy, Malaysia, Netherlands and Slovakia by conducting a digital conference on 2 May 2020.

This video conference was a healthy respite from the all time boring quarantine. Students exchanged views on how to cope with the difficult situation. It was an interactive session where they discussed topics ranging from impact of covid19 on education and economy of their country to the steps taken by their respective governments to combat the virus. They even guided each other on how to take precautions to fight this deadly virus.

At the end, keeping in mind the ‘Social Distancing’ where we cannot even think of shaking hands or giving goodbye hugs, the teachers concluded the session with a simple gesture of joining hands and saying NAMASTE.

"Cultural differences should not separate us from each other, but rather cultural diversity brings a collective strength that can benefit all of humanity." - Robert Alan

Keeping this fervour in mind, St. Mark's Girls Sr. Sec. School organised a cultural exchange programme from 25 January to 3 February 2020 with Lycee Elie Cartan, its partner school in La Tour Du Pin, France. The school hosted a delegation of 15 students accompanied by their teachers, Ms. Laurence Barbier and Mr. Pierre Bourrin. The delegates were received with great warmth by the host families and with a traditional welcome at school by our Vice Principal, Ms. Sabina Shergill. Soon after, a guided school tour was conducted for them where they were welcomed by cheerful cherubims of the school.

An array of activities, interactive programmes and lessons were organised for the delegation. They got an opportunity to express their creativity through Rangoli, Worli Art and paper recycling session. They tried their hands at culinary skills and enjoyed cooking Indian as well as French dishes with their hosting partners. They also enjoyed playing outdoor games like Hopscotch, Throwball and Badminton and indoor activities like Carrom and Ludo.

Our French friends had a wonderful experience in Agra for a day, admiring the beauty of the Taj Mahal and Agra Fort. They also enjoyed sight seeing of Delhi, exploring Gandhi Smriti, Lotus Temple, Agrasen ki Baoli, Bangla Sahib and Lodhi Garden. They made life time memories by exploring Pratapgarh Farms and Sariska National Park, as well as shopping at the local markets with host families.

The ties were further strengthened through an Indo-French activity and a quiz played on Kahoot between the French students and their hosting partners. The delegation attended a cultural fiesta of Indian Classical and Folk dance, showcasing the eternal heritage of our country which was followed by an amazing performance of gymnastics by the French students. The program concluded with the exchange of mementos and certificate giving ceremony. The cultural exchange ended happily with a promise to stay united in the midst of cultural diversity and strengthen the bonds of friendship.

“Tolerance, inter-cultural dialogue and respect for diversity are more essential than ever in a world where peoples are becoming more and more closely interconnected.” - Kofi Annan.

And the best way to accomplish this is a homestay exchange programme. A delegation of 4 students each from Weber Schule, Eutin and Küsten Gymnasium, Neustadt, Germany headed by the German teachers Mr. Lukas Gorrissen and Ms. Renata Duda-Merle respectively, visited St. Mark's Girls Sr. Sec. School, Meera Bagh, New Delhi from 17 January to 25 January, 2020 for a Student Exchange Programme. The students coming from Germany stayed with host buddies, thus getting exposed to the lifestyle of Indian families. They appreciated the hospitality and warmth showered on them by their Indian hosts.

The guests witnessed our rich cultural and historical heritage during their visit to the Lotus Temple, Gandhi Smriti, Agrasen ki Baoli, India Gate, Lakshmi Narayan Temple and Lodhi Garden. Cooking and rangoli making workshops were organised for the guests who enjoyed the Indian cuisine as well as the traditional Indian art. To have the flavour of ethnicity of our country, they visited Dilli Haat, the biggest crafts bazaar in Delhi, where they were amazed to see the variety of handicrafts indigenous to India and enjoyed shopping. A cultural fiesta was also organised for the delegation wherein Divanshi of Class XI gave a Bharatnatyam performance which was followed by a mesmerising gidda dance performance showcasing the rich cultural tapestry of our country. The program concluded with the exchange of mementos and certificate giving ceremony.

Tasting the delicacies of Indian cuisine, dressing up in traditional Indian attire, applying henna on hands, and exploring the heritage of Delhi as well as Agra and Jaipur, gave them a glimpse of colourful India in a short time span. The entire group was appreciative of the school's efforts to provide them a comfortable and a meaningful stay. The goodbye was a promise to stay connected and grow the bonds of friendship stronger.
