Integrating meaningful amenities in school campuses for sustainable growth
With an underlying message to prepare the learners for the future world, STS Group yesterday launched Glenrich International School (GIS).
Glenrich will follow the Cambridge curriculum, with a goal of making students learn about scholastic subjects, while at the same time, be encouraged to pursue creative pursuits.
Education Minister Dipu Moni inaugurated the school at the capital’s Badda area yesterday.
In her inaugural speech, she said, “Over the last decade, Bangladesh has made notable progress in expanding access to education. If we get international quality education in the country, it is very good for our students,.”
“Students here should learn about Bangladesh, its language, history and culture. Students who don’t know about their roots, can’t be students,” she said.
She suggested adding scholarships for students who require aid for admission at the institution.
Matt Cannell, acting British high commissioner to Bangladesh, said, “It gives me immense pleasure that this school will follow the Cambridge curriculum.”
Ramesh Mudgal, principal of Glenrich International School, said, “The world is changing rapidly, so we need to change the way of education for our children to keep pace with that,” he added.
Speakers at the programme said students will also get a French language course, along with robotics education.
Commerce Minister Tipu Munshi; Deputy Minister Mohibul Hasan Chowdhury; Steve Plisinski, director of International Schools Services, USA; CEO of STS Group Manas Singh; and Prof Md Mashiur Rahman, vice-chancellor of National University, also spoke at the programme.
