The Gaudium is very proud to have been the host for the IB PYP Hyderabad Network meet for Heads and Coordinators which was held on April 6, 2018 at our Kollur campus. It was indeed a pleasure meeting the educationists from various IB schools across both the states – Andhra Pradesh and Telangana. The agenda of the meet was to discuss upon the network events and professional development sessions scheduled for the teachers during the next academic year 2018-19. A brief session on the IB authorisation and evaluation processes were also discussed in this forum wherein, different schools shared their experiences and journey.
This forum was chosen to announce the IB PYP network newsletter,’Frames’, and The Gaudium volunteered to manage it henceforth. In addition, The Gaudium will also be hosting an upcoming ‘Job Alike’ session at our premises. The meet provided an opportunity to strengthen and expand our schools IB network.
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.
