Samsara- The World Academy is a progressive school which believes in crossing the boundaries providing the best international exposure to their students. Keeping the school mission alive the school has hosted the U.K. teachers for two months who will be working with our students of all age groups on their language skills. Neena Ballo, a graduate in psychology and journalism from The University of Northampton. She has experience of working with special needs children and Ms. Ritika Arora, who is pursuing her graduation in International Development from Kings College, London will prove to be an asset for our school. Both the teachers are here for the months of August and September, 2016. Ms. Neena and Ms. Ritika were given the Indian traditional welcome on 8th August, 2016 followed by a high tea with staff which was organised to introduce to them to the Samsara family. The U.K. teachers were later introduced to the students. A welcome assembly was also organised for them where students sang song and a special skit was performed. Our principal ma’am, Capt. Praveen Roy wished them a fruitful stay and also motivated students to have an ambition and be progressive in life. Hope this pedagogical journey proves to be productive for all and also an outstanding amalgamation of cultures.
A thumbs-up week to Girl Power | Empowerment, Independence, and Self-sureness
Expanding minds by bringing into picture international cultures, wrapped up in people & talks from around the world, that's Samsara School!
From more than 100 schools in greater noida, Samsara was tapped and recognised for a thesis research on self-defense being practiced by girl students in India, by Nicole Tallberg (pursuing global studies from university of Gothenburg) and Casper Lie (graduate from IHM business school) of Sweden.
Bringing their experiences of the world and of their home town Sweden at our doors, and penning new stories of the bold character and persona of wisdom the girls of Samsara wear everyday, was the eventful and awe-inspiring week starting from April 4th, with tonnes of interactive sessions on self-defense, group discussions, intercultural exchanges, selfies with beautiful proud smiles and splitting sides with laughter.
We do believe in travelling and writing your own version of the world, but at Samsara we also endeavour to bring the uniqueness filled in each part of the world to our classrooms.
South Korean Peace ambassadors, Miss Christine, Miss Enid and Mr. Rex, visited our school on 28th December, 2015. Our Principal, Capt. Praveen Roy, personally introduced them to our students and staff members. The peace ambassadors visited all classes and shared their peace message with our students. The guests were surprised to see the enthusiasm among our students to become a part of IPYG( International Peace Youth Group). It was a wonderful experience for all of us to meet the HWPL volunteers and we are glad to receive "The Certificate of Appointment as Publicity ambassador of HWPL" . We are also happy to receive the peace messages which are sent by Mr. Man Hee Lee. He believes that women and youth can re-establish peace in the society by treating each individual as a human being irrespective of their religion and sharing brotherly and sisterly love amongst themselves.

were a part of the classroom teaching across different sections. Ms Nicola and Jane had a very close
interaction with the students at Samsara about education and life in the U.K. India is a beautiful country
and is known for its diverse religions, cultures, traditions and its historical monuments. They got to catch
a glimpse of a few of them like the Taj Mahal, The Red Fort, India Gate, Akshardham temple, Jama

sabji, kheer, idli sambar etc. Samsara The World Academy is a part of Meerut Public School Group,
