About Vijaybhoomi School Connect
A platform, and an effective bridge between the School and University ecosystem. The School Connect Program works closely with schools to fulfil the following three objectives:
a. To expose students to newer opportunities and vast knowledge resources
b. To work with school faculty to enhance their teaching skills and knowledge
c. To create an effective communication channel between both ecosystems.
Under this program we have devised a series of different interventions: academic- and skill-based, as well as students and teachers focused, to benefit all stakeholders of the ecosystem. These interventions follow a hybrid model giving the school and students the power to choose between mediums according to their comfort levels. There are ample opportunities to host these interventions on our beautiful, sprawling 55 acres campus for a wholesome experience.
This structured program was established in 2021 and since then, the Vijaybhoomi School Connect Program has connected with over 400 Schools from 20+ States in India and across the globe, not to mention, with a presence in countries such as the UAE, Qatar, Mauritius, Japan, South Africa, Nepal, Bhutan, Bangladesh and Zimbabwe.
