British Council has launched wonderful programs for all schools of Pakistan, including Connecting Classrooms and International School Award (ISA), where teachers are capacitated and students are facilitated to develop awareness of global dynamics, and to value geographical & cultural diversities. CC and ISA programs effectively promote national and international links of students and teachers. With these efforts, distances are shrinking, and people across the globe are coming together. The first ever ISA Certificate (for 2012-15) at Pakistan was issued by the British Council on 1st September 2012 for LIMS Hayatabad, Peshawar, and GPS Jaica Model School, Peshawar. Shields and Certificates were awarded in a graceful ceremony at Peshawar on 16th February, 2013, by Mr. Riaz Bahar, Director Education, KPK. This prestigious award is an accreditation for embedding international concepts into the curriculum and whole school ethos.
The 2nd Award Ceremony was organized by the British Council at Islamabad, on 20th March 2014 for the winners of 2013 and 2014. Muhammad Rafiq Tahir, Joint Educational Advisor, Capital Administration Development and Mr. Nasir Nazir Head of Schools Program, British Council were the Guests of Honour. This was a ceremony of certification of the efforts of those schools across Pakistan who are successfully integrating the international dimension to the process of education. The program was conducted by Dr. Salma Masood Khan, Director LIMS, & leading member of the ISA Core team of the British Council Pakistan. Recitation of the Holy Quran was done by Yusra Afzal, and translation by Muteeba Mansoor of Imperial International School and College Islamabad. Children of the same school presented a colourful Chinese dance to heartily welcome all the guests and a dramatic depiction of ISA activities to signify the role and impact of ISA on the education of children.
Syed Khawar Abbas, Project Manager Schools, highlighted the background, purpose and underlying philosophy of the prestigious ISA. Students of Girls Branch of LIMS, impressed the audience with a message rendering melodious song, entitled as “I am the world”
In 2013 the work of 2 other schools was declared of International standard. Hence Imperial International School & College, Islamabad, and Rawalpindi Grammar School were declared the winners of ISA (2013-16). Whereas the work of eight more schools from all over Pakistan enabled them win ISA (2014-16). The heads of the first 4 winning-schools, Ms. Tahira Tanvir, Ms. Zahabia Badri and Ms. Samina Riaz shared their experiences and highlighted the activities that enabled them win the prestigious ISA. The fourth Head, Qazi Abdul Wajih could not participate due to sudden illness.

We all at LIMS, owe special thanks to the British Council for graciously supporting and precisely guiding all interested.
