Welcome to my blog!

Journey of being an educator is lovable and challenging at the same time. The mixed feeling comes from the very fact that we are responsible for preparing our children for the uncertainties! Future could be unknown, but our journey is all set to empower every child to approach it gracefully!

It is interesting to see our leadership and academic team discussing on why a happy schooling is needed and how that environment could support every child equally! This discussion also includes the thought processing to define the scope of web and technologies in teaching and learning. Undeniable perspective remains to be the need for social interaction-based learning and creative engagements. This will invariably equip a child with moral intelligence, culture and wisdom needed to navigate the world with no fear!

Our latest debate on “should kids be given assignments that cannot be googled?” has brought about newer thoughts and reasoning for and against googling for information. It has helped us to critically think how information handling skill is also important as part of research skills. It is very difficult to conclude what skills are needed and to define the scope of academics! It is everything and all of it! And that would mean school and beyond school! Thanks to all advancements and technologies that cater to these needs in real-time! Just that we should be mindfully embracing technology and not become slaves to it!

At schools, constant focus is on how to answer questions – not a bad direction though. But consider this – if we also drive students to focus on arriving at big questions that can be pursued for new approach or new findings – can that be the baby step for inspiration in research direction? After all the information around us – now called as the shared knowledge – available on web, books and other sources is possible because of big questions from curious minds. Why not we inspire ourselves and young minds to create new knowledge and innovate for a better world?!

On many occasions we have called for shared responsibility from parents to work together. To watch every child thriving to be an independent learner and a responsible citizen is a celebration of our partnership!! We thank our parents for the tremendous trust and support for us in every step we take!

Every day, we look forward for giving more and experiencing the joy of learning from every child. We are committed to collaborate with children to cater to their learning levels and needs. The Indian Public school will continue to go beyond glories and laurels to constantly work towards supporting every child to achieve greater heights in their own pathways!!

This is our way of happy schooling! We love you all kids!!

Jai Hind!
