School Kids to Make the World a Tranquil Planet logo_cdls

As a part of Modern School’s leadership initiative and global outreach Programme, we will be organizing our 13th Community Development and Leadership Summit – 2018 from Saturday, the 15th of December to Saturday, the 22nd of December 2018.

Modern School has hosted schools from more than thirty countries in our past CDLS since 2006, which include Australia, Bangladesh, Canada, China, France, Germany, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Italy, Kenya, Lao PDR, Malaysia, Mexico, Nepal, Pakistan, Philippines, Russia, Serbia, Singapore, South Africa, Sweden, Switzerland, Thailand, Turkey, U.A.E., U.K., Ukraine, U.S.A and Vietnam.

This year we hope to host two new schools, one each from Ghana and Japan.

The key objective for organizing the CDLS is to encourage mutual exchange of ideas and help develop leaders, who will grow and provide such experiences that will help the young leaders of tomorrow to make informed choices about their roles in the world communities. In an increasingly globalized world, they need to dream big for their own country and for the world at large. We wish to make a meaningful difference towards this grooming and care.

The participating contingents in this summit, spread over six days, shall consist of four students from a participating school accompanied by one teacher. We wish to advise that all participation, boarding, lodging and local transportation within Delhi and other expenses related to the summit after arrival of the delegates at New Delhi, shall be borne by the host school.

We are expecting our delegates to arrive on or before Friday, the 14th December and they may depart two days after the Valedictory Function scheduled on Thursday, the 20th December 2018. Two days after the Valedictory Function are basically free for the visiting delegates. They may spend their time with the host families and visit different important places of Delhi with their hosts during the weekends or can visit some important and popular tourist destination around Delhi on their own cost. Modern School shall provide adequate assistance for the same, if been requested well in advance. Thus the visiting delegates may stay with the host families’ up to Saturday, the 22nd December 2018 and depart for their home on or before Sunday, the 23rd December 2018.
