“Simple exchanges can break down walls between us, for when people come together and speak to one another and share a common experience, then their common humanity is revealed.” – Barack Obama

The Indo Dutch Exchange Programme is the one that not only unites two school groups but also it is friendship and fraternity between two countries. We learn to appreciate in the field of science and technology. This kind of exchange makes students citizens of the world.

St. Mark’s Girls Sr. Sec. School, Meera Bagh got the opportunity to host a delegation of 9 students and 2 teachers from Christelijk College Nassau-Veluwe, Harderwijk, The Netherlands, from 13 – 22 December 2019 as a part of Indo-Dutch Exchange Programme. The gracious Indian host families received their Dutch guests with lots of warmth. The Dutch students were accompanied by their teachers, Ms. Eline Westerhout and Ms. Sarah Koopmans.

They received a traditional welcome at school by Ms. Sabina Shergill, our Vice Principal. An ice-breaking session and a school tour was conducted for the students and teachers in order to bring them closer. The entire ten days schedule was well formulated with activities and an experimental learning about the Indian culture. The group embarked on a joyful journey of experiencing food and different colors of India. They enjoyed playing the popular playground game hopscotch, the Dutch card game –Kwartet, badminton, and also participated enthusiastically in the Annual Sports Meet.

They were all set to take lessons in learning History, Maths, Yoga and Indian cooking. The students enjoyed creativity at school through rangoli, coffee painting and paper recycling session.

A colorful representation of two different cultures among many different cultures of India was showcased through a Cultural Program, where Indian and Dutch students performed songs and dances. The Dutch students also gave an insight into the Dutch culture through power point presentations.

To have glimpse of the Indian heritage they visited Agra and the Pink City – Jaipur. In Delhi, they visited the SOS Village, Buddhist Monastery, ISKCON Temple and Dilli Haat. They also had a day tour of Delhi, exploring the Lotus Temple, Lodhi Garden, Gandhi Smriti, Agrasen ki Baoli and Lakshmi Narayan Temple. They let their taste buds experience and relish the Indian delicacies with much taste and fun. The shopping spree went on and on, ending up with Mini India in their luggage. We take immense pride in being a part of the Indo-Dutch Exchange Programme.

This Programme was a milestone in our personal and professional journey of knowing each other’s country and people. We wish this relationship between India-Netherlands to grow from strength to strength with each passing year.

It is rightly said that cross-cultural experience teaches us not simply that people have different beliefs, but that people seek meaning and understand themselves in some sense as members of a cosmos ruled by God. In order to understand what lies beyond the boundaries of a country, we need to keep our minds open and explore the world like an adventurous ride. And the best way to imbibe this is by being part of a cultural student exchange programme.

A delegation of 11 students from Obudai Arpad Gimanizium and Veŕès Peter Gimnazium, Budapest, Hungary headed by Ms. Kinga Belley and Mr. Balint Feteke, visited St. Mark's Girls Sr. Sec. School, Meera Bagh, New Delhi from 23 to 28 November, 2019.

The student-teacher delegation were participants into this fabulous journey of varied cultural unveiling. They were received at the airport by our students and their families. They enjoyed an insightful day tour of Delhi, exploring the Lotus Temple, Agrasenki Baoli, Lodhi Garden and Gandhi Smriti. Looking into the ancient artifacts and stunning monuments that have created the epic Indian history, students were truly impressed by the diversity. A cultural programme was organised for our Hungarian friends where in students of both the countries presented a glimpse of their culture through dances and choir group performances. The programme was concluded with the exchange of mementos.

Our guests also hadan opportunity to attend classes on Coffee Painting, Paper Recycling and Dance sessions. They whole heartedly enjoyed the sports and yoga session at school which truly made them believe that yoga is an essence of life and a science of integrating body, mind and soul. Furthermore, they attended the History and Mathematics lessons in School as well as were amused to be involved in hands on experience of cooking Indian food during the cooking session at school. They not only got the chance to savour the taste of Indian spices but also were hugely enthused by the teaching styles of cookery and everyday academics.

The delegation also got an insight into cultural diversity of India by visiting the rich heritage sights of Agra and Jaipur. Concluding the programme, Hungarian students acknowledged efforts made by the teachers and students of the school for a successful and memorable exchange programme. Contentedly, goodbyes were exchanged but with a promise to meet again.

Cultural exchanges provide an opportunity to explore other cultures, traditions, customs, beliefs, societies, languages and much more. Hence, such opportunities make us view the world with a different lens. It broadens one's horizons and increases the tendency of acceptance.

To accomplish this, a delegation of 9 students from Obchodna Akademia Roznava, Slovakia headed by their Headmaster, Mr. Viktor Baláz and teachers, Ms. Jana Vidova and Ms. Helena Frenova visited St. Mark's Girls Sr. Sec. School, Meera Bagh, New Delhi from 11 to 17 November 2019 to complete the second phase of the Student Exchange Programme. The students coming from Slovakia stayed with their host-buddies thus getting exposed to the lifestyle of Indian families. They enjoyed 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, Bangla Sahib, Charkha Museum, India Gate, ISKCON Temple, Agrasen ki Baoli and Lodhi Gardens. To get a flavour of Indian ethnicity, they visited Dilli Haat, where they were amazed to see the variety of handicrafts indigenous to India and enjoyed shopping. The delegation participated actively in a plethora of activities like badminton, yoga and meditation. Also a cultural programme was organised for the delegation where in students of both the countries presented traditional dances. Ms. Zuzana Mezencevova, Consul, Embassy of the Slovak Republic, New Delhi was present to grace the occasion.

Dressing up in traditional Indian attire, applying henna on hands, enjoying scrumptuous Indian cuisine, and exploring the heritage of Agra, gave them a glimpse of our colourful India in a short time span.

Creating a better world requires teamwork, partnerships and collaborations. To collaborate is to be open to each other’s ideas and benefitting from each other’s perspective in an open way. We, at St. Mark’s Girls School, believe that great collaborations are forged when the strong bond of friendship is built. Good relationships leave footprints in your heart. One such friendship is between SMGS and Vordingborg Gymnasium & HF that was witnessed at St. Mark’s Girls School.

A student-teacher delegation of 18 students and 2 teachers was a part of Student Exchange programme from 10th November 2019 to 16th November 2019. The delegates were traditionally welcomed in the school and they also were a part of the celebrations of the Guru Nanak’s Jayanti in the school. To learn more about the Indian Education System, they attended History and Psychology class along with Coffee Painting, Yoga and Kho-Kho. The host students and the guests visited the Royal Danish Embassy. Our Danish friends had a great experience in Agra as they gazed and admired the beauty of the Taj Mahal and Agra Fort. Moreover, they visited Akshardham Temple, India Gate, Bangla Sahib and Connaught Place with their hosts.

The exchange happily ended with a farewell party. It was a great exchange programme, the imprints of which would reverberate in our memories for lifetime.

Perhaps one of the greatest means to achieve global peace and harmony is Cultural Exchange. It opens up the vistas of human understanding and further expands our universal consciousness. It makes the young minds learn more than their fixed quota of curriculum.

Six students of St. Mark’s Girls Senior Secondary School along with the teacher escort, Ms. Arpita Dutta conducted a successful Cultural Exchange Programme with the delightful students of Vordingborg Gymnasium & HF, Vordingborg, Denmark from 24 August to 1 September, 2019. The moment they stepped out of the airport they were greeted by their hosts along with their families who stood ready to take them home.

The next day all the students along with their hosts met at the Geo centre Mons Klint, where they covered 500 steps both up and down to visit the beautiful coastal region.

The following days were school days for them where they were briefed about the projects like Mystical mythology, a story weaving session and a project on ‘Gender Identity’. Luckily, for the students, they got to witness a cultural event called Waves Festival, which gave them more exposure to the Danish culture and entertainment. They later visited the Vordingborg uptown were the cafes and shops were present.

The Indian students along with their Danish pals also visited Copenhagen. Their first stop was the Danish Parliament. It was a spectacle on its own, the exterior was beautiful, and the intricacies carved on the interior were exquisite! The Danish people truly saved their political legacy in that building. Afterwards they went to Stroget, one of the prominent shopping streets in Denmark, it was bustling with life and the simple architecture amazed everyone. It was followed by a visit to the Louisiana Art Museum.

The students compiled their projects and presented in front of the Vice Principal and the other teachers. The Indian students gave a spectacular dance performance as well. Then it was the time for the official closing ceremony. Ms. Arpita Dutta gave an enamouring speech along with the exchange of cultural tokens and the diplomas were distributed by the Vice head, Ms. Mette Abilgaard. The students cheered happily and then clicked a beautiful group picture together, locking their memories in a frame forever.

Finally, it was time to say goodbyes to each other. The moments shared were now all packed along with their memories and brought back home. Of course, in anticipation of their Danish friends who will be visiting India in the month of November.

“The most beautiful in the world is, of course, the world itself.” – Wallace Stevens.

We at St. Mark’s Girls Sr. Sec. School incessantly strive for giving wings to our students so that they soar high, see the world and experience its intricacies. The participation of our students in the ICYS was indeed a step in this direction.

To encourage creative and innovative activities among students, the International Conference of Young Scientists (ICYS) 2019 was held from 19 to 25 April at Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. It was organised by Malaysia Young Scientists Organisation (MYSO). The aim of this conference was to instil and enhance research culture among school students. Our students, Gurleen Kaur of Class XI and Anchita Bhutani of Class X, who were part of the Indian team also presented their research work on the topics ‘Use of Agar for growing plants’ and ‘Ultrasonic Emergency Alarm’ respectively. Students from 27 countries presented their research work in the conference. Our students also participated in poster presentation. Students acquainted the other participants about the Indian culture through a powerpoint presentation and Bihu dance performance. This event gave them an opportunity to interact with the student researchers of other countries and learn about their work. Students also got an opportunity to explore the beautiful city of Kuala Lumpur. They went to see Theon Hou temple and places of historical importance of Malaysia. Such events help in empowering young minds and prepare them for the future.

'Cultural differences should not separate us from each other, but rather cultural diversity brings a collective strength that can benefit all of humanity. Culture is one such thing that we can exchange as human beings to knock aside our differences and build upon our similarities.

Resonating the same thoughts students of St. Mark's Girls Sr. Sec. School, New Delhi were invited for a home stay exchange programme to Lyceé Elie Cartan, La Tour Du Pin, France. A student-teacher delegation of 13 students of Classes VIII-XII and escort teachers, Ms. Vandana Pandey and Ms. Meenu Khurana went to La Tour Du Pin from 4 to 14 April 2019.

The first two days were spent at the Capital of France, Paris, one of the most beautiful city. The students saw the majestic Eiffel Tower, Notre Dam, Sacre Coeur, Opera House and Arc De Triomphe on Hop on Hop off bus Tour.

At Lyon, our delegation was received with great warmth and love by the two French teachers, Ms. Laurence Barbier and Mr. Olivier Hagnere along with the hosting students and their families at the airport from where the teachers and students were escorted to their respective host families. Next morning the entire Indo-French delegation assembled in French host school. After formal introductions our students and teachers were guided through the school by the French students.

The following week long activities were ably officiated by the French teachers and students. The busy schedule included guided city tours of Lyon, and the home town La Tour Du Pin. The city tours lead us to several Churches and Basilicas located in the city. The holy places proved to be as beautiful as their history giving us an insight into the spiritual inclination of the host country. The city tour also included a visit to Annecy, known for its cobbled streets and winding canals. The students and teachers also had an enriching experience in the French language class. On the last day, mementos were presented to the Vice headmistress Lucie Malbranque. Our Chairperson, Mrs. Anjali Aggarwal graced the closing ceremony with her presence, which also included video presentations and dance performances by the students of our school. The French audience was floored by the colourful extravaganza on the stage.

Culture is a strong part of people's lives. It influences their views, their values, their hopes, their loyalties, and their worries and fears. Working with people of myriad cultures and building bonds with them, helps in better understanding of cultural diversity.....
Thus, exposing young minds to various cultures is vital towards personal growth.

Resonating the same thoughts the students of St. Mark’s Girls Sr. Sec. School were invited to Obchodna Akademia Roznava, Slovakia for a Cultural Exchange Programme. A delegation of 7 students of Classes IX and X, escorted by their teacher coordinator, Ms. Anjali Handa visited Slovakia from 5 to14 April, 2019. Our delegation received a warm welcome by the Headmaster, Mr. Viktor Baláz in his office. The week long activities were well organised by the Slovak teachers, Ms. Jana Vidova, Ms. Helena Frenova and Mr. Petr Valny, along with the Slovak students.

Through this international collaboration, the students got an opportunity to expertise with each other’s educational system. They got acquainted with various aspects of the culture and lifestyle of Slovakia through interactive sessions during English lessons, presentations and musical recitals. Our students presented videos highlighting the education system at school as well as programmes related to Environment and Community Service as a part of the ASEF project Be the Change – An Effort. The students and teachers enjoyed cooking in the evenings, getting hands on experience of the Indian and Slovak way of cooking. To give a quick insight into the rich cultural heritage of our country to the Slovaks, our students presented the folk dance of Punjab – Gidda and a solo Kathak dance during a cultural programme organised at the Town Hall of Roznava. The colourful attire of our girls and their performance was highly appreciated and applauded by all.

The students also explored the historic town of Roznava, visiting the most interesting sights namely the Watch Tower, an artificial waterfall and the Betliar Chateau, the most beautiful castle in Slovakia. They enjoyed a nature walk on the outskirts of Roznava and a walk through the Slavošovce Tunnel, built during the World War-II. A day tour of Košice, the second largest city in Slovakia, where they explored the third largest zoo in Europe was fun.

The explorations were furthered by a 2-day visit to Budapest, Hungary where our students saw the most famous landmarks like the Parliament House and the Chain Bridge on river Danube. They also visited the Aggtelek National Park at the border of Hungary and Slovakia along with their Hungarian counterparts, and had an adventurous tour of the caves where stalagmites, stalacites and dripstone columns were a treat to the eyes. It was surely a memorable trip for all the students as it gave them an insight into cultural diversity.

The ten day visit came to an end when bags were packed with heavy hearts but with a contentment that the new bonds made would be strengthened in the near future. In this way, one more exchange programme held by St. Mark's Girls Sr. Sec. School winded up leaving an imprint of our cultural heritage on a new place of the globe.

A good friendship can have a huge impact on happiness. Friendship can develop with people we have never met before, and who are living on the other side of the world.

The student members of AEC project 2019, ASEF Teens Action for Change from St. Marks Girls Senior Secondary school, New Delhi, India and the student members of Escola Basica Ferreira Lapa, Satao, Portugal got an opportunity to talk, via video conference on 5 April 2019.

Students were thrilled to see each other and discuss things of their interest like favourite books, subjects, food, places and their dreams. They also discussed about some core topics of the project like gender inequality, pollution, over population, etc.

Such endeavours inculcate tolerance, acceptance and a positive attitude towards life.

BONDS BEYOND BOUNDARIES . . .

It is rightly said that “life begins at the end of your comfort zone”! We might think that we have a lot to explore and experience in life, in our own country. But unless we move out of our comfort zone we cannot understand what lies beyond the boundaries of our country. And a homestay ex-change programme is the best way to experiencethis.

To accomplish this, a delegation of 9 students from Küsten Gymnasium, Neustadt, Germany headed by the Vice Principal, Mr. Ralph Hübner and the German teacher Ms. Renata Duda-Merle visited St. Mark's Girls Sr. Sec. School, Meera Bagh, New Delhi from 18 January to 26 January, 2019 to complete the second phase of the Student Exchange Programme. The students coming from Germany stayed with host buddies thus getting exposed to the lifestyle of Indian families. They enjoyed the hospitality and warmth showered on them by theirIndian hosts.

The guests witnessed our rich cultural and historical heritage during their visit to the Lotus Temple, Buddhist Monastery, ISKCON temple, Akshardham Temple, Qutub Minar, Agrasen ki Baoli, Bangla Sahib, Lakshmi Narayan Temple, Charkha Museum, Haus Khas lake and Lodhi Gardens. To have the flavour of ethnicity of our country, they visited Dilli Haat and Janpath, where they were amazed to see the variety of handicrafts indigenous to India and enjoyed shopping. The German delegation participated actively in a plethora of activities like yoga, sports, art, music, dance and paper recycling. They also got an opportunity to attend lessons in Maths, Languages, Geography and History of India as well as a cooking session to understand Indian cuisine. The entire group was appreciative of the school's efforts to provide them a comfortableand a meaningful stay.

Dressing up in traditional Indian attire, applying henna on hands, tasting the delicacies of Indian cuisine, and exploring the heritage of Agra, gave them a glimpse of colourful India in a short time span. The goodbye was a promise to stay connected and grow the bonds of friendship stronger.

Cultural Exchange is often about strenghtening ties and exploring the multi facets of a place.

A delegation of 7 students from Silute Vydunas Gymnasium, Silute, Lithuania headed by 2 teachers, Ms. Lolita Kucinskiene and Ms. Maryte Lukosaitiene, visited St. Mark's Girls Sr. Sec. School, Meera Bagh, New Delhi from 12 December to 21 December, 2017 for a Cultural Exchange Programme. The Lithuanian students 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.

Our guests got an opportunity to indulge in the rich cultural tapestry of our country by attending the SPIC MACAY program, a Kathak Dance Recital by Kumari Mahua Shankar Ji. They also witnessed our historical heritage during their visit to the Lotus Temple, ISKCON temple, Lodhi Gardens, India Gate, Bangla Sahib and Buddhist Monastery. But culture is not always about the forts we visit and the palaces we see, it is much beyond that. Hence, the teacher delegates from Lithuania took a leap in the direction of exploring the humane reality of our culture by visiting the SOS Village, thereby exposing themselves to the inclusive culture of our country where we weep and smile together. They also visited Gandhi Smriti, Charkha Museum and Haus Khas lake. To have the flavour of ethnicity of our country, they visited Dilli Haat, where they were amazed to see the variety of handicrafts indigenous to India and enjoyed shopping.

The Lithuanian delegation participated actively in a number of activities at school like yoga, sports, art, cookery and paper recycling. They also got an opportunity to attend lessons in English, Sanskrit and Geography. During the cultural programme which was honoured by the presence of Ms. Agne Sakalauskaite, the Deputy Head of the Lithuanian Embassy in New Delhi, they enjoyed the Indian dances and also presented a treat of their folk dance to our Indian students. Also, a photo gallery was exhibited by our Lithuanian partners at school on 100 years anniversary of their country, giving our students a greater insight into the culture of Lithuania. The entire group was appreciative of the school's efforts to provide them a comfortable and a meaningful stay.

Dressing up in traditional Indian attire, applying henna on hands, attending Indian weddings, tasting the delicacies of Indian cuisine, and exploring the heritage of Agra, gave the Lithuanian girls a glimpse of colourful India in a short time span. The goodbye was a promise to stay connected and grow the bonds of friendship stronger.

But unless we move out of our comfort zone we cannot understand what lies beyond the boundaries of our country. And the best way to experience this is a student exchange programme.

To accomplish this, a delegation of 11 students from Veres Peter Gimnazium and Arpad Gimnazium, Budapest, Hungary headed by Ms. Ivett Hegedus and Ms. Kinga Belley, visited St. Mark's Girls Sr. Sec. School, Meera Bagh, New Delhi from 18 November to 24 November, 2017 to complete the second phase of the Student Exchange Programme.

The guests witnessed our rich cultural and historical heritage during their visit to Red Fort, Humayun’s Tomb, Akshardham Temple, Gandhi Smriti, Qutub Minar, India Gate, Agrasen ki Baoli, Bangla Sahib and Sacred Heart Cathedral. To have the flavour of ethnicity of our country, they visited Dilli Haat, where they were amazed to see the variety of handicrafts indigenous to India and enjoyed shopping. The Hungarian delegation participated actively in yoga, sports, art, music and dance activities. They also got an opportunity to attend lessons in English, Psychology and Geography as well as a cooking session to understand Indian cuisine. The entire group was appreciative of the school's efforts to provide them a comfortable and a meaningful stay.

IMPRESSIONS OF DENMARK

Denmark is known for its stunning coastlines, cosmopolitan capital, contemporary designs of the structures and rolling country sides.
We had an exchange programme with Denmark. We arrived at Copenhagen on 13th May 2016. The city is full of open spaces and is ideal place to stroll and ride the bike. My host lived in the heart of a beautiful countryside near Haslev, which is about 60km from the capital. I along with my host explored the long distance, picturesque trails on foot. One could actually sense the beauty of nature. During the trip of 8 days, we along with the Danish teachers and friends visited their school, got an idea about their education system, and attained a lot of knowledge. We visited a church, a cliff, which is a UNESCO world heritage site, situated on the shore, where Denmark shares its border with Sweden. In Copenhagen we took a cruise ride along a canal and saw the little mermaid statue, beautiful churches, royal castles, ancient wooden boats and the colourful canal houses painted yellow to red. On the last day, we had farewell dinner. It was heartbreaking for all of us because I did not want to leave my Danish friends and Denmark. Upon our return, I have a bag full of beautiful and precious memories. I’ll never forget this exchange programme which gave me an opportunity to know the rich heritage of Danes and experience their lifestyle.” - By Shivi Thareja (Class : X-A).

“What I have realized in one week at Denmark is that it is a nation with happiness scattered all around with some best quality of life. Beyond the capital and the bigger cities, Denmark offers a mix of lively towns like Haslev, where we stayed, medieval churches, ancient castles, the sleekest modern design one will see and the people who invented Lego-who could ask for more?“ - By Bharti Mishra (Class : X-B).

“Denmark has been one of my best trips I have ever been to. It is one of the most beautiful , clean and peaceful country and with warm, funny and kind people. I am glad that I got an opportiunty to stay at a complete stranger's house because it made me learn a lot of things that I wouldn't have been able to learn if I had stayed in a hotel. I got to learn about their daily life routine and how they treat their guests. It's just shocking how straight forward they all are.

I had a lot of fun and made so many new friends that I couldn't have even thought of. Altogether, it was a great experience that I will never forget.” - By Jaspriya Kaushik (Class : XII-A).
