The Robert-Bosch-Fundation is a big supporter of our exchange project. Their “German-Indian Classroom” project was actually the initiator of the long lasting partnership of Johannes-Turmair-Gymnasium and Lotus Valley International School. In a newly published review the Fundation looks back on many years of successful project work.
The publication not only summarises the many exchanges the Fundation supported but also makes available many hints and tricks for schools which consider whether to start a new intercultural partnership.
Of course the excellent exchange projects of our schools are explicitly mentioned in that review which can be downloaded at the homepage of Robert Bosch.
Our German-Indian exchange project is mentioned in the publication
- on page 30 the former principal of Johannes-Turmair-Gymnasium gives an interview in which among others he explains how a project orientated exchange can be integrated into school life.
- on page 65 Wolfgang Pöschl the project coordinator of Johannes-Turmair-Gymnasium summarises in a small article called “After the project is before the project” how one of our project topics about Krishna and Jesus Christ was developed.
- on page 98 our intercultural dance is mentioned. The renowned Kathak dancer Hemant Kumar Kalita choreographed a German-Indian dance “beyond borders” which was televised nation-wide.
- on page 101 the student of LVIS Nikhila Kalia informs us about her plans for the future. She wants to study in Munich, Germany. We whish her all the best.
But we recommend not only to read these few pages of the over 100 pages long brochure. Everybody who is in charge of or wants to establish an international exchange should browse through that publication.
