The British Council International School Award started in 1999 to recognise the schools leading the way in instilling and developing a global dimension into the learning experience of all children and young people.
ISA is the International School Award given by the British Council.
It is a badge of honour a school receives after showcasing a school year’s work with activities that foster an International dimension in the learning experience of the learners. This is done with the focus of raising young people with cultural understanding and skills required to live and work as global citizens.
The activities involved allowed learners and teachers to connect and share a learning experience with partners overseas. Learners research global issues and proffer solutions for a better future.
