The teachers, parents and students of the school successfully organised an exhibition to provide unique educational experience to every child. The exhibition was based on 10 international projects including flowers, animals, houses, dresses, seasons, medicinal plants, harvest festivals, tourism, dances and crops.

The unique feature of the exhibition was that students themselves performed and explained visitors the various culture, tradition, dress, life-style and food habits, by wearing the dress of that particular region. Children introduced festivals being celebrated at Australia, Japan, Kenya, America, West Asia, Egypt, South Africa, Brazil and other countries.
Speaking to Deccan Herald, School Principal Sr M Carmel Rita said that the exhibition provided the students an opportunity to have global trends in education. “They compared and contrasted the different cultures, food habits, environment, languages and dresses prevailed in different countries of the world. The exhibition provided unique educational experience to students in a supportive environment that promotes personal attitudes of self discipline, motivation and excellence in learning,” she added.

Apostolic Carmel Congregation Superior General Sr Agatha Mary inaugurated the exhibition
while Janny Joosten from Holland was the guest.
