We strive for maintaining quality and thus achieving excellence by preparing students for learning beyond their school years and assisting them to become lifelong learners, say Sandeep Goenka and Archana Goenka, Founder Trustees, CP Goenka International Schools, in conversation with Elets News Network (ENN).
To manage with the rapidly evolving world, students must be responsive to change and receptive to new ideas, how does C P Goenka International School maintain such environment for its students?
At C P Goenka International School, we have created an environment that exposes students to different
cultures, value systems and practices in different ways like student exchange programmes, model united nation sessions, interactive learning activities, debates, and research projects etc. This enables them to understand different perspectives. Such activities encourage students to appreciate cultural diversity. This helps them to accept the change positively.
What are the best practices followed by the school in its curriculum to nurture lifelong learners?
The curriculum is planned in such a way that creativity, collaboration, learning by doing, online and differentiated learning, self-regulation and problem solving are regularly undertaken through projects that focus on solving real-life problems. Students’ confidence and self esteem are fostered through activities like MdM (My delightful Moment) where students showcase their unique talents, debates, quiz, street plays, elocution, etc.
The curriculum also incorporates differentiated learning strategies to nurture students’ strengths, integrate multiple intelligence-based activities, flipped classrooms and the right use of technology etc, to develop skills and create the most competent learners and citizens.
How growing use of technology in education sector is improving the teaching-learning practices, assessment methodologies and improving the learning outcomes?
The effective use of technology in education has changed the face of education and created more educational opportunities for teachers and students. use of online activities, educational games, high-tech lessons and collaborative learning sessions with the children of the world has brought out a global perspective amongst our students.
What measures are adopted by the school for active engagement of parents along with teachers for holistic learning amongst its students?
Parents play a fundamental role in the development of our school and students. The active collaboration of the student-parent-teacher has had its impact on the holistic learning of the students. Active involvement of the parents in the PTA, framing of activities, organising events and functions has
nurtured a compassionate attitude towards teaching and learning.
