5 Indian Schools Make It To The World’s Best School Prize Shortlist

by admin

In a notable recognition, 5 Indian schools situated in Maharashtra, Delhi, and Gujarat have secured their spots across various categories for the prestigious World’s Best School Prizes. These annual awards, valued at USD 250,000, are organised in the United Kingdom to honour exceptional schools worldwide that have made substantial contributions to society’s progress.

Celebrating Excellence

The five Indian schools have been shortlisted for their outstanding achievements in Community Collaboration, Environmental Action, Innovation, Overcoming Adversity, and Supporting Healthy Lives. These categories celebrate the pivotal role played by schools in nurturing the next generation of learners and their remarkable impact on societal development, particularly in the challenging context of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Established last year by T4 Education (a UK-based organisation), the World’s Best School Prizes was instituted as collaboration with prominent entities like Accenture, Yayasan Hasanah, American Express, and the Lemann Foundation. These prizes serve as a platform for schools worldwide to share their success stories and inspire others with their remarkable achievements.

Vikas Pota, the Founder of T4 Education and the World’s Best School Prizes, expressed his belief that the Indian institutions chosen for the shortlist would serve as an inspiration for schools globally. He emphasised the importance of a strong school culture, attracting exceptional educators, inspiring change, and creating excellent teaching and learning environments.

Schools Shortlisted for the Honour

Among the Indian schools shortlisted, Nagar Nigam Pratibha Baalika Vidhyalaya (NPBV), a government school in Delhi, was recognised in the Community Collaboration category. The school earned a spot on the list in honour of its novel community-based intervention approach to fill the gap between teachers, students, and parents.

Another notable inclusion in the same category was Oberoi International School, an independent international school in Mumbai. The school was commended for instilling hope, empathy, and a sense of shared possibility among its students and the surrounding communities.

The Riverside School in Ahmedabad, Gujarat, renowned for its groundbreaking and student-centric educational approach, including its “I CAN” pedagogical model, was shortlisted for the World’s Best School Prize for Innovation.

Snehalaya English Medium School, a charity school in Ahmednagar, Maharashtra, received recognition in the Overcoming Adversity category. The school has transformed the lives of children affected by HIV/AIDS and those from sex worker families, successfully eradicating second-generation prostitution in its district.

Lastly, Shindewadi Mumbai Public School (The Akanksha Foundation), a charter school in Mumbai, was nominated in the Supporting Healthy Lives category. The shortlist status of the school acknowledges its efforts to fight low immunity and poor nutrition in its students and the wider community post the lockdown.

These Indian schools’ remarkable achievements have placed them at the forefront of educational excellence, demonstrating their dedication to shaping a better future. The World’s Best School Prizes not only recognise their accomplishments but also provide a platform for sharing their transformative practices with schools worldwide.
