present, an increasing number of NRIs are debating over services
that India can provide to them at competitive rates.
One such initiative in the field of education was taken in Punjab on
August 3, 2009. This resulted in the creation of Harvest
International School (www.harvestinternationalschool.com).
at Jassowal-Kular, Tehsil Jagraon, District Ludhiana. The school is
affiliated to University of Cambridge International Examinations (http://www.cie.org.uk/).
University of Cambridge International Examinations is the largest
provider of international education programs and qualifications for
5-19 year olds. More than 9,000 schools in over 160 countries are
part of the Cambridge learning community. The student: teacher
ratio is 1:12. Harvest International School is the fastest growing
Cambridge school in Punjab.
school has world class
infrastructure The Campus is residential but also caters
to day boarders. It is fully air conditioned, has Wi-Fi facilities,
state of the art laboratories, smart boards and excellent teaching
faculty. The ambience is totally pollution free. More than 60 NRI
children are already enrolled in the school. They represent a
diverse background- Argentina, USA, Canada, UK, Germany, Qatar and
Sporting facilities are at par with rest of the infrastructure. The
Campus has 14 flood lit tennis courts with both expatriate and
domestic coaches (www.harvesttennisacademy.com),
a swimming pool, a health spa, a modern gym and facilities for other
sports as well.
In addition to the common academic streams, we are trying to meet
the requirements of tomorrow. With this in mind, we have chosen
Spanish and Chinese as the two foreign languages which are taught
here. We are introducing
Studies from 2012 Session onwards. Although not a regular
subject, we are also going to start
Punjabi Culture Studies. This may especially benefit NRI
children from Punjab. We offer Scholastic Admission Test (SAT)
classes and other support systems to facilitate children’s college
admission. The School has a very competitive fee structure.
We feel that information on this kind of school/environment needs to
be disseminated. We would request you to use your good offices to
inform the Punjabi community about this new facility. Should you
require any further information, please Contact us on
Thanks & Regards,
