The Critical reading session by Prithvi sir was really captivating and mind stimulating. I genuinely feel that I have learnt those skills that I did not have before. ‘Thinking about a text in various perspectives changes the meaning of that text’ – this part of the session enthralling for me to think out of the box. Also as many of us including sir had a well interactive session, whenever I hear an opinion which was way too far out of my box I used to feel amazed ‘oh yeah this is also a good point!!’. I really hadn’t expected the session to be like this. I thought it would be the same old thing, where we analyse a reading comprehension like we already did in 9th and 10th grades, but when Prithvi sir connected critical reading to news, politics, pandemic and many more “hot” topics going on right now in the world, it totally slipped my mind that critical reading need not be applied only in the English subject. I was really benefitted by this session as everybody students and the teachers critically analysed and evaluated various situations it has added on to my knowledge. I would love to have many more sessions like this one, where we critically analyse and evaluate not many more controversial topics.

Can education move from merely imparting knowledge to showing how to apply that knowledge? Can we as parents move from mindless test-scores to a more meaningful method of evaluation? Can a child be taught to recognise and create value in everything he does? These were some questions that inspired The Gaudium. Gaudium means ‘Joy’ in Latin. At The Gaudium, we will help each child find joy through the core values of Integrity, Perseverance, Compassion, Appreciation, Humility, Respect and Tolerance.
