India-an amalgamation of several cultures-has had a profound impact across the world.
India is the cradle of one of the earliest civilization of the world - The Indus Valley Civilization. Our culture has been a powerful, all absorbing and all embracing process. In the past, it has received, adapted and digested elements of many different cultures—Indo-European, Iranian, Greek, Roman, Scythian, Turkish, Persian and Arab. India has been a crucible of various 'races' and ethnic groups. They all have contributed to the making of Indian history and culture. The people from other cultures and civilizations have brought with them their own traditions which got intermixed and integrated with the pre-existing traditions. With each new influence, it has somewhat changed; but it has retained its continuity. India has never lost the pride of her cultural sublimity.

The programme was always supported by various grant from the Government of Germany, For Example- PASCH-(Partner School), Bosch.This was a great privilege in its own.
The students spend two weeks of their summer vacation with the family allotted to them. This experience is very unique, leaving behind their own family in India and trying to establish themselves as a family member in an absolutely new family environment. The students not only struggle to get know to each member of the family but also adjust with their food habits and lifestyle. They learn to be more organized and punctual.
Yester year had blessed two students Kshitij and Sarthak, who won the international competition for the exchange students and were invited to be a part of 60 year celebration of PAD, which was also an outcome of the experience of Indo – German exchange Programme. This achievement has made the school proud.
These Exchanges give the young learners not only a deep insight into the German culture, tradition and their lifestyle but also provide a firsthand experience .This changes their perspectives about life, make them independent and finally also improves their German language speaking skills to a great extent.
The students with their counterpart also developed new art forms, raised funds for poor people, got to know new techniques of learning and so on… based on the project works taken up each year. The students with different mindset, background learn to understand each other’s viewpoint ,bridge these gaps , exchange ideas and work hard to achieve the goals.
They also work together to make the Indo German evening a memorable event, which is celebrated as mark of tribute to the amalgamation of Indian and German mores. It is a magnificent sight to experience two extremely vivid cultures under one roof and laying out their respective cuisines and dancing off on their favorite number.
This Exchange platform is a blessing and opens many avenues in future for the young learners.
It’s a dream project and joint efforts of both the schools, which in these years have turned out to be a strong friendship .The idea of shaking hands with different culture and exchanging traditions is very much appreciated in today’s world of globalization and helps in strengthening bonds.
