The school firmly believes in the adage ‘the world is one big family’. The same is reflected in the vision of the school which focuses on creating confident Indian Global Citizens. The school has a thriving partnership with many schools across continents, giving its students an insight into the culture of different countries.
Global partnerships are fostered to reflect the aspirations of a seamless world where human boundaries are absent and only universal citizenship prevails. At KIIT, we firmly believe in this rationale where we get the opportunity to delve into the historical and cultural aspects of different countries. We have been fortunate enough to cultivate a bond of friendship with two schools in South Korea. And since then, the partnerships have been flourishing and thriving. This bond has blossomed into a full bloom with various activities and projects being undertaken by both the schools. This has brought two very distinct cultures together and tied them into a fellowship that we cherish forever.
A delegation of twelve students from KIIT World School, Pitampura along with Principal Dr Sangeeta Bhatia, Headmistress Dr Richa Verma and Ms Shiwangi Ghosh visited South Korea under the cultural exchange program.

Apart from that, the group also visited South Korea’s renowned ‘N Seoul Tower’ located on Namsan Mountain by aerial tramway and enjoyed the panoramic view of Seoul and the surrounding areas. During their sojourn, they got the opportunity to tour many famous and remarkable historical places such as Gyeongbokgung Palace which was built in the year 1935 by the Joseon dynasty and Hanok village which is preserved to show a 600 year-old urban environment. Their expedition also included Hangang river ferry cruise, Coex Aquarium, Cheonggyecheon Stream, Dongdaemun and Myeong-dong, Market,Trick-eye Museum, Ice Museum, National Museum and Seoul Animation Centre.

The visit to Samsung D’light.was an out-of the world experience for every one as they experienced the future projects and latest technologies. The amazing trip to South Korea broadened the horizons of students and left an indelible imprint on their minds.
Collaboration with Poland
KIIT welcomed a team of Principal and three teachers from its partner school Gymnasium 26, Poland. A spectacular exhibition on Polish culture, literature, scientific and technological discoveries was organized on the occasion. The students of KIIT recreated famous monuments of Poland in the form of 3-D models and display charts. Before putting up this exhibition, the students had thoroughly researched about Poland. They keenly delved into the historical and cultural aspects and came up with creative ideas to portray them in the form of live models, music, art, technology and much more. The students from class VI to XI were facilitated by their teachers and mentors in planning the exhibition. They were given a week’s time to explore every feature of Polish culture. After which, the information gathered by them was materialized into beautiful displays. The students accomplished the task within a week. They also learnt Polish dance which was prepared by the dance teacher in just about four days. Scientific inventions like bullet proof vests, land mine detectors, movie projectors, etc were the highlights of the exhibition. The students vividly explain the role of Poland in World War I and II. The extensive research done by the students was on its full display as they confidently described the important facts from Polish culture, history and demography to the audience. The exhibition also included a sumptuous and eclectic spread of Indian and Polish food. The rationale behind the exhibition was to reflect the aspirations of a seamless world where human boundaries are absent and only global citizenship prevails.
