With the increasing globalization and internationalization happening everywhere, it is vital for students to expand their worldview, to be taken out of their comfort zone and get an opportunity to appreciate other cultures. “As an institute we don’t just have a responsibility of teaching our students various subjects. We also have a duty in making students independent, mature citizens of this world. Taking them to international destinations offers them a chance to learn about other societies and value other cultures”, said Dr.Neeta Bali Director Principal G D Goenka World School.
