Alliance Francaise to teach French to the school students

Mentors from Alliance Française de Dhaka (AFD), a nonprofit organization also known as the French Cultural Center, will teach French language courses to the students of Glenrich International School (GIS) as part of their regular curriculum.

GIS signed an agreement with Alliance Francaise de Dhaka on 15 June 2023 at its premises with a view to facilitating mentorship for its students. GIS has been doing this in continuation of their efforts to create a caring and nurturing environment appropriate for flourishing for its students.

An agreement signing ceremony was held at GIS campus in the presence of the officials from both the organizations. From Alliance Francaise de Dhaka (AFD), Franqois Grosjean, Director of AF, Dhaka and Mohammad Lutfar Rahman, Teacher Coordinator, French Courses and Training, were present. From Glenrich International School (GIS), Ramesh Mudgal, Principal of GIS; Jahangir Kabir Rasel, Head of Operations, STS Capital; Kumkum Habiba Jahan, Head of Junior School; Dushani Rajaratnam, Head of Pre-Primary; Monjurul Kabir, Head of Marketing and Seak Mohammad Shihab, Manager, Operation, graced the event with their presence.

Alliance Française de Dhaka has been working in Bangladesh since 1959 for promoting French culture in this region and also popularizing local culture in France. This is a center for cross-cultural exchanges and multimedia resources.

Inspired by the idea ‘School of Life’, GIS is taking initiatives to make its students future-fit by ensuring exposure to a number of out-of-textbook courses. Some of these include robotics education with STEMROBO, Math labs by Math Buddy and music lessons following the syllabus of the Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music.
