HAPPY CLASSROOMS-CBSE WORKSHOP- NOVEMBER 16, 2019
“In a very real sense, we have two minds – one that thinks and other that feels”
One day workshop on the ‘Happy classroom’ was held at Vandana International School on 16th November 2019. The workshop was divided into two sessions which was attended by the Primary and Secondary teachers, co-ordinators and Vice Principal of the school. The resource person for the workshop was Ms Savita Arora, Principal, Bharti Public school (National Teacher Awardee – 2012).
The session was conducted using audio-visual which kept the teachers actively engaged in the workshop. The activities included in her workshop were inspiring and thought provoking. She emphasised on the importance of being a role model for the students. She explained by quoting various examples that it is very important to reduce the communication gap between the student- teacher- parent trio for developing healthy and cordial relationship amongst them. Motivating the students with various incentives to maintain a conducive learning environment and not labelling a child were some of the other key elements of the workshop.
Indeed, the workshop was very informative and entertaining as it taught the important concept of incorporating happiness and emotions in the Class.
