New Delhi: Nord Anglia Education (NAE), the world’s leading premium school’s organisation, will hold its Education Advisory Board meeting in India for the first time at Oakridge International School, Hyderabad on Wednesday 20 November 2019. Lord David Puttnam, Oscar winning film producer, member of the UK House of Lords, and Chairman of NAE’s Education Advisory Board, will chair the meeting.
During their visit, the Education Advisory Board members will meet the Oakridge leadership team and spend time with students across different grades discussing topics and areas of interest. Lord Puttnam will also host a session with select group of students from Oakridge who will have the opportunity to interact and converse with him on relevant topics of discussion.
Dr Terry Creissen, Managing Director, Nord Anglia India said, “We are proud to be hosting the first visit to India of the Nord Anglia Education Advisory Board. The meeting will be at Oakridge International School, Bachupally and they will also visit Oakridge International School, Gachibowli. Today’s parents see that the best education for their child goes further than simply ensuring academic excellence. Our schools are equipping them to be global citizens today and the change makers of tomorrow. I am delighted that our Education Advisory Board support us in achieving this, offering insight and experience to help shape the education of every Nord Anglia student.”
Earlier this year Oakridge International School, with presence in four cities in India, became part of the NAE family of schools. Oakridge’s more than 7000 students are now connected to a community of 66 schools across 29 countries, allowing unique opportunities to collaborate beyond the classroom and giving access to extra resources and support. NAE also have partnerships with some of the world’s leading institutions such as MIT, Julliard and UNICEF to enhance students’ learning.
