SDPS, East Punjabi Bagh, hosts webinar for young artists

SD Public School, East Punjabi Bagh, conducted a webinar to help its students visualize their creative world, be it dance, drama, music or art. Under the guidance of its chairman Dayal Chand Garg, manager Gopal Krishan Gupta and principal Umesh Kumar Chhikara, the school has been helping its young artists climb the success ladder step by step.

There were three eminent guest speakers for the event --professor Nuzhat Kazmi, the Dean of Faculty of Art at Jamia Milia Islamia University, Pankaj Guru, an international visual artist, and Fauzia Jamal, a research scholar. All of them spared their precious time to support the young aspirants. The workshop was live on YouTube and had 30,000 views in two days. It was appreciated much by the creative industry. One of its kind initiative, it engaged visual art professionals to interact with the secondary and senior secondary students

Italian polymath Leonardo da Vinci has rightly said, “Painting is poetry that is seen rather than felt, and poetry is painting that is felt rather than seen.”

A child is a born artist who needs guidance to canvas his/her feelings and thoughts. Emotions are more accurately revealed when presented artistically. Beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder and each and every piece of art enlivens the surroundings to its fullest. Admiration and guidance are the two forces which give a boost to the children. The children enliven their thought process using various mediums like colours, sketches and shading.

The world has so much to share. Just keep your eyes open, recollect the emotions in tranquillity and spread the aura on the canvas with those lively hues and colours. The school is the right place which is the stepping stone for the success.

DLF Public School, Sahibabad, hosts Principals’ Roundtable meeting on pedagogical leadership

DLF Public School, Sahibabad, hosted a day-long Principals’ Roundatable meeting on pedagogical leadership for school leaders across Delhi-NCR.

To upgrade its educational paradigms, the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) had mandated learning outcome-based teaching-learning process for all its schools. The board lays emphasis upon the importance of school leaders assuming responsibilities as pedagogical leaders as their first priority.

Over 50 school principals from Delhi, Noida, Ghaziabad and Gurgaon joined in and engaged in collaborative sessions and powerful reflection cycles to explore the true essence of being ‘leaders of learning’. It covered several significant elements in modern teaching-learning pedagogies and their implementation in enhancing the teaching-learning efficacy.

The roundtable was facilitated by Chitra Ravi, an educational visionary who has spent the last two decades crusading against mediocre practices in the education ecosystem.

In 2001, she founded a state-of-the-art educational research and innovation organization, Chrysalis, that envisions letting every child awaken his/her human potential.

Chitra stated that school leaders as educationists should not only be able to provide a conducive learning environment to children to identify their innate potential but also dream to ensure that every child becomes a lover of learning lifelong. Host school principal Seema Jerath said, ‘Education of affective domains – the heart and the spirit has been long overlooked.

There is a need to raise the emotional and spiritual quotient of our learners. A solitary fantasy can transform a million realities. The destiny of India is being shaped in our schools. You can count the seeds in an apple, but you can never tell how many apples you will get from that seed. Each school leader is that seed with limitless possibilities’.
