Governor inaugurated IB Programme @ The Heritage School Kolkata
Today his Excellency, Governor of West Bengal, Shri M.K.Narayanan and the First Lady, Smt. Padmini Narayanan inaugurated the new International Baccalaureate Diploma (IB) programme at the Heritage School on its 12th foundation day celebration.
The inauguration of the IB programme at Heritage made it the second school in the city providing such programme. IB programme is meant for class XI and XII students who would be getting an international qualification similar to ISC/CBSE+2/HS boards but in fact more than these boards in terms of value addition courses, experiential learning modules and internationalization. The headquarters of IB programme is based at Geneva and the qualification would be accreditated by them. “Such international qualification would help the students to grab the global challenges and opportunities,”
“Change-makers of the education system should not tamper it unduly for the present generation,”
Ritika Singhania, ICSE topper of the city and student of the school, Aditya Bhutra, 7th rank holder in WBJEE, also student of the school and many other achievers of the school was felicitated in the prize distribution ceremony on the foundation day along with their parents and grand parents.
The Heritage School is the proud recipient of British Council International School Award, HP Global Innovation Award, Duke of Edinburgh Award, School Enterprise Challenge Award and many more.
