The Corona Pandemic has brought the World to a complete halt with lockdown all over, so as to keep the human race safe and alive by practicing SELF DISTANCING. A very sensible move indeed, appreciated the world over. As teachers, we cannot remain away from our children for long, so at the Millennium School, we thought of using our virtual classes to beat the virus and come out as winners.

Our students, pan India, are connecting with us by a morning SMS and soon our Health-Set-Go team sends tips and measures to fight the virus by washing hands with soap for at least 20 seconds, use of extensive disinfectant and of course, finally, STAY AT HOME, DO NOT VENTURE OUT IF AVOIDABLE.

We the educators, at the Millennium School decided to teach our little ones through virtual classes. Various training sessions for teachers started and we armed our facilitators to approach the class with full attendance.

The new X and XII classes were sent video notes and worksheets. There were Skype sessions, discussions and assignments given. We used the Information Technology at the best.

I took the initiative of writing poems for children to keep their learning interesting. We also shared morning exercise videos and eating healthy breakfast etc.

We encouraged our children to narrate stories of their talent in this testing time. Parents were sent guidelines and creative videos to encourage maximum participation. We have asked the parents to share videos of art and craft and storytelling for the young Millenniumites.

We are sharing classes with Fliplearn, Zoom, Utube, Facebook and Whatsapp. For TMS, WhatsApp means “whats up folks?” In order to stay connected with our stakeholders, our dear parents, we are using innovative ways to keep the children engaged in a positive manner and to keep their spirit high, during this unpleasant time of lockdown.

I feel humbled being the author of the Millennium School Bathinda and also feel proud at the way my dear staff is giving me full, dedicated support at this point in time and take up the challenge to beat the coronavirus with our virtual teaching.

We have just begun……and how!! It’s a proud beginning and I salute my seniors who inspired us to connect with the Teaching Learning World.

I often wonder, can a child have a better School than The Millennium School???
