Panaji: Sunshine Worldwide School, Old Goa, said it has now been authorised as an International Baccalaureate (IB) school, the first in Goa. It is now only among 300 IB schools in India and in the league of 5,000 educational institutions worldwide, School Founder Director Deepak Khaitan said.
Khaitan said Sunshine School will now follow the same IB curriculum as schools of the likes of Mumbai’s Dhirubhai Ambani International School and The Doon School in Dehradun, among others. Headquartered in Geneva, Switzerland, IB curriculum is focused on developing skills of inquiry, knowledge, and empathy among children, through inter-cultural understanding and respect.
“The authorisation process takes 2 to 3 years where the school and faculty have to be onboarded and aligned with the philosophy. We were able to complete the authorisation process within a year,” said Khaitan. Sindu Hemant, principal, Sunshine Worldwide School, said IB is aligned with the Indian National Education Policy 2020.
