The fruit of education lies in its roots. Providing a strong foundation for the students for their future is one of the most important aims of education. There is a necessity for every educational institution to divert from its traditional method and it needs to fulfill the requirements of its students in this competitive world. Whatever stuff we give to the students seems to be less when they face new challenges outside. So, giving some fundamental knowledge at the basic level will be a ‘smart move’ by any good institutions. In this regard we took the initiative of conducting preliminary training to our students in IIT from Rao IIT Academy, Kota, Rajasthan, which is one of the leading coaching institutions in India. Our school is the first across the state to start IIT coaching which is one of the unique features of our school.
Good communication skills are indispensable for the success of any professional. If one wants to reach people, he or she has to express it through a language. The English language in particular has become essential today in the lives of young people who aspire to advance their career anywhere in the world. Therefore, English language has become a must for any Indian student today. Usage of modern technology in education gives an impetus to the quality education. The lab for language learning is a new dimension in learning which develops the aural-oral and written proficiency of the students. Realizing the inevitability of such a technology to our students we have set up a language lab in our school. Innovative products like digital multimedia control, headsets, microphones, interactive response tools are the special features of our language lab. Students are allowed to use the lab regularly to improve their language skills.
Excellence is determined not only by the results we produce but also by the quality and performance of each and every student as individuals. Living in a new millennium, if we are to achieve the kind of excellence, along with education, the intellectual, civic, moral and social development is essential. With regard to this, our tenth standard students had got a wonderful opportunity to get training on their personality by Mr. Satish, an international HRD trainer from Mysore. It is a training which lasted for ten days in the month of November where very essential life skills and techniques like Aromatherapy, Music therapy, Body yawning, Mind map, Memory files, Speed and rapid reading, Super brain yoga etc. have been taught. My special thanks to Mr. Satish for instilling the life skills and a number of techniques in our students which hopefully benefit them in their future.
INTERNATIONAL CULTURAL EXCHANGE PROGRAM
Cultural exchange program is a unique concept which exposes the students to people from different cultural, religious, geographic and socio-economic backgrounds and in so doing provide the opportunity for students to develop a greater understanding of diversity. They allow students to interact with and learn from people who are different from themselves and to participate in new and unique experiences beyond their own communities. Cultural exchange assists students to develop positive relationships with others, understand a broader range of perspectives, and develop the knowledge and skills needed for participation in our multicultural society. To give such an exposure to our students we had a week long international cultural exchange program to our students attended by delegates from Spain. Introduction of Indian tradition and its art forms like Bhajan, Bharathanatya, Kathak, Yakshagana, Folk dance and songs took place during this time. The delegates were served with delicious Indian dishes in the traditional manner. The rural games of India are being introduced. A procession was undertaken to create awareness about our environment. Likewise, a number of programmes have been conducted which provided opportunities for both the countries to understand features of fair and just society which values diversity.
