At CIS, on the TOK Day, Friday, 21 April 2023, during their individual exhibition, our class of IBDP 2024 presented their objects (three different each) to their peers, teachers, parents and other members of the school community. The aim was to demonstrate an  understanding of the nature of knowledge through the core theme ‘Knowledge and the Knower’ and the five optional themes ‘Knowledge and Technology’, ‘Knowledge and Language’, ‘Knowledge and Politics’, ‘Knowledge and Religion’ and ‘Knowledge and Indigenous Societies’ on one of the 35 IA prompts.

TOK provides an opportunity for students to develop critical thinking, research, and communication skills, as well as to reflect on their personal and academic growth.



13th June 2022, marked a special day for both our institution and its students, when we inaugurated Cygnus International School, introducing the IB Diploma Programme at Cygnus.

We began the day an excited, yet nervous group of students, who were ready to begin this new chapter of their school life. We were given a warm welcome by all our facilitators, as we engaged in various games and activities, boosting our enthusiasm even further.

We then went to the field to take part in a heated game of basketball, where we reconnected with our not-so-old CBSE friends through sport and conversations. We later went to the bistro, to end this day filled with fun and frolic on a high note.

13th June 2022 will always be a memorable day , for it was one filled with both curiosity and excitement, as we took a step closer to our goals and our future! We look forward to become lifelong learners and to contribute to create a better and more peaceful world.
