Update : 01 Jun 2023, 10:17

The signing ceremony between Glenrich International School (GIS) and the Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music (ABRSM) took place on Wednesday at the GIS campus in Dhaka to open up a world of opportunities for GIS students to excel in performing arts and music.

The signing ceremony between GIS and ABRSM took place on May 31, 2023, at the GIS Campus. Dignitaries from both institutions, including Mr. Shafaitul Islam, Representative of ABRSM in Bangladesh; Mr. Ramesh Mudgal, Principal, Glenrich International School; Mrs. Kumkum Habiba Jahan, Head of Junior School, Glenrich International School and Mr. Jahangir Kabir, Head of Operations, STS Capital; were present to celebrate the occasion.

Recognizing the immense value of performing arts in a child's educational journey, GIS remains committed to providing its students with a rich and diverse range of artistic experiences. Through this agreement with ABRSM, GIS students will have the privilege of being trained by highly experienced ABRSM coaches in the art of Piano, Guitar, and Violin. These dedicated instructors will inspire and guide GIS students on a path of musical excellence, creating newer heights of cocurricular learning opportunity in Bangladesh.

At the heart of this partnership lies the implementation of a world-class music curriculum, recommended by ABRSM, which will be taught in state-of-the-art music studios at Glenrich International School. This exceptional curriculum, combined with the guidance of ABRSM’s talented instructors, will empower students to strive for excellence and reach their full potential in the realm of harmonies. Upon successfully completing their course, GIS students will have the opportunity to showcase their skills through ABRSM's internationally recognized assessment process, which can pave the way for them to earn a prestigious certification from the Board.

“This partnership marks a significant milestone for GIS, as we strive to provide holistic and comprehensive education to our students, stepping beyond the traditional means of learning”, said Mr. Ramesh Mudgal Principal, GIS. “We are honored to team up with ABRSM, a highly esteemed institution with a shared vision of fostering a deep appreciation for music. Together, we will hopefully cultivate a vibrant and nurturing musical community within our institute”.

"We are optimistic regarding this collaboration with Glenrich International School”, said Mr. Shafaitul Islam, Representative of ABRSM in Bangladesh. “By combining our expertise and resources with their spirit to bring a landmark transformation in the local education sector, we will opt to create an enriching musical environment where students can flourish and realize their hidden potential. We strongly believe that every individual, regardless of their background, deserves access to top-quality music education”.

Glenrich International School envisions to be a leading educational institution in Bangladesh, committed to providing a comprehensive and nurturing learning environment for students. With a focus on holistic education and character development, GIS prepares students to excel academically and thrive in a rapidly evolving world. On the other hand, ABRSM, known as the United Kingdom's largest music education body and one of the world's leading music exam providers, holds over 650 thousand assessments annually in more than 90 countries. Founded in 1889, ABRSM boasts a rich and illustrious history. Throughout the years, their mission has remained steadfast—to nurture a deep love for music and inspire remarkable achievements within it. As a registered charity, ABRSM also dedicates itself to supporting music education initiatives worldwide through generous donations.
