“When educating the minds of our youth, we must not forget to educate their hearts.” – Dalai Lama
Gaudium school in its 5th year is continuing to commit to its philosophy and has reflected and reviewed its happy minds model and has come up with a unique model of how to sculpt happy minds. For the academic year 2020-21, every student and teacher at Gaudium at high school will be carrying the portfolio which will reflect their daily journey of learning and teaching through their process journal extracts and records of their holistic profile building. The objective of this is to provide documented evidence of holistic excellence from a variety of sources and provide context for that evidence. This will enable teachers and students to organize material and help one reflect on and improve one’s attitude and skills. The’ Happy Minds Model’ covers all the required aspects like physical, mental, social and emotional needs of the students that will enrich their journey in school. The vision of the school “Unlocking potential of every student to create happy and responsible leaders who balance their inner and outer world to be future ready!” can be fulfilled.
During this week’s induction session, the role of teachers, and how they will be supported by the school management in building the 5 development pillars was shared. Many teachers expressed that such a structured programme to bring excellence in teaching and learning they have not come across so far. Their enthusiasm to start the classes and bring the plan into action is very evident!!
