Student Exchange Programme to Finland

International learning and knowledge propel students towards acceptance and understanding of an array of different cultural and community perspectives.

Taking forward the vision of our founder chairman Shri Niranjanlalji Dalmia of providing broader avenues of learning for holistic development of the students, N L Dalmia High School undertook a student exchange Programme to Finland wherein on 17th August,2018 nine students of class 10 visited TukkurilanLukio (Tukkurila Upper Secondary School) in Finland.

Currently Finland occupies the top position in the world for Education. It was precisely for this reason that Finland was chosen for this flagship exchange programme. Were the fortunate students who got the opportunity to be a part of their program. Varun Kamble, Yash Dasouni, Sean Khandeparkar, Unnmit Trivedi, Hriday Shetty, Harsh Jindal, Malhar Bonde, Divij Lad, Yousha Mehra.

While in Finland the students were housed with Finnish families and this enabled them to understand and appreciate their family value system.

Students visited the Eureka Science center, the suomenlinna fort, the Kuusijarvi Lake famous for lake swimming and smoke sauna and the Karl Fazer chocolate factory. Each visit and the subsequent interactions that followed thoroughly enhanced the knowledge the students had about Finland and its rich cultural heritage. It is truly heartening to know that the students adjusted, adopted, mingled and whole heartedly cooperated with their host families.

This exchange Programme inculcated the values of globalization, helping the students to understand a new environment and culture.

It gave them the opportunity to study the best education system of the world and helped create an attitude of acceptance to ‘what seems different’.

This Exchange Programme which is another bright feather in the cap for the N L Dalmia High School, was successfully accomplished under the able guidance of the CEO and Principal of N L Dalmia High School Mrs. Seema Saini who is a visionary, a committed educator and a leader par excellence. Mrs. Saini diligently and dexterously managed her exceptionally busy schedule and herculean duties to accompany the students to Finland and supervise them with care.

Hats-off to Mrs. Payal Saini, the International Programme coordinator who worked tirelessly at the helm of the programmer right from its inception till its smooth execution.

The Vice-Principal of the Secondary Section Mrs. Annie Michael made all out efforts to motivate, encourage, guide and support this mammoth initiative.
