More than 140 teachers of Delhi Public School, Udaipur today attended the Motivational & Strategy building session by Pavan Kaushik, Head of Corporate Communication, Hindustan Zinc, primarily meant to set the short term and long term Vision for the school. He launched the program “Guru – Kshetra” to motivate and orient teachers so that they can groom leaders of tomorrow. The session was attended by teachers from primary to 12th standard.
Each subject should be identified as an independent vertical so that at the end of the year, performance can be assessed and evaluated. Excellence in each vertical will position a school for its Brand Image.
”Guru Kshetra” session lasted for 2-hours and had its focus on personality development of the students, leadership building, setting up of an active parent’s advisory board etc. Pavan Kaushik said that the school should involve parents in curriculum development, make them responsible and make use of their professional knowledge that can play a big role towards orienting students in different professional fields.
He spoke at length about setting up short term and long term vision of Delhi Public School that kept the teachers thinking over several aspects of education and schooling that can strengthen the base and identity of every student. He said that “Reputation of a school is directly associated with parents and students. It’s a joint opinion of all three that positions educational institution.”
During his session, he also emphasized on grooming of students’ body language & communication skills. There is no emotional connect between students and school. The feeling of belongingness is missing. The education should be exciting and something new should happen every year as part of curriculum.
To bring this change, implementation of a corporate structure should be formulated wherein attention is given to every vertical of education, including sports. He said that this structure will help in not just branding but would also bring a healthy competitiveness amongst teachers.
Guru-Kshetra session at DPS Udaipur culminated with the thought to adopt a vibrant education system with a well-defined vision.
