Wilson said, "I am very pleased to see so many participants this year and hope to see more in the future."

The director of east and northeast India at British Council, Debanjan Chakrabarti "We are delighted to have worked with teachers across schools in east and northeast India. The need is to move away from propositional to procedural learning. Students need to know 'why' and 'how', more than 'what' and 'when'. We hope more schools enrol for the International School Awards and go on this global journey of creative learning with us."
