The International Baccalaureate (IB) has created a series of World Student Conferences (WSC) to bring together IB Diploma Programme (DP) students from around the world to experience “globally citizenship” through discussions, activities, debates, site visits, performances, presentations and many more. Spain’s first IB World Student Conference kicked off on 5 July 2015 with interactive sessions and workshops conducted by industry leaders and academics some of who are LaSalle University Barcelona. One hundred and fifty IBDP students travelled from around the globe to the University of LaSalle, Barcelona, to explore how they could harness the immense variety of online technology and education opportunities. Eleven delegates (Grade 11) with Mr Santanu Bhowmik, and Mr Guru Charan Kumar from Pathways World School undertook this splendid journey. Pathways is the only IB school from the Delhi-NCR to participate in this conference.
Angad Chawla of Grade 9 at Pathways School Gurgaon has been selected for Gurgaon District under 16 Cricket Team Camp. A total of 180 children went for the trials and only 48 were selected for the said camp. Angad has also been offered a scholarship by YSCE and he represented the Pathways School Cricket Team that went to England in July ’15.
Kudos to Angad!

We are extremely delighted to share with you the images from the Cricket Tour of Pathways Students to England (Under 17).

Pathways Schools along with Yuvraj Singh Centre of Excellence (YSCE) have organized a Cricket Tour to England for our students (Under 17). The 20 day tour involves 9 competitive matches with other schools and cricket clubs in England and specialized practice sessions. The students will also get an opportunity to have an Indoor Session at Lord’s Cricket Ground, also known as the Mecca of Cricket. The vision behind the tour is to give our budding aspirants an international exposure that will not only give them the valuable experience of travelling with a sporting team abroad, but also give them confidence to play and stay in a country with a different cricket culture. Apart from matches and practice sessions with some of the most respected names in cricket coaching in England, the tour will also involve some cultural sight seeing in London and Birmingham thus making it an interesting journey.
