STRATEGIC LEADERSHIP PROGRAMS ATTENDED BY THE PRINCIPALS AND COORDINATORS-

In a rapidly changing world, educational institutions are passing through a challenging phase. The situation is even more complex and critical in educational institutions especially in schools. What happens in schools today is likely to determine the future of our societyfacilitating personal growth along with institutional development. They also guide the schools to integrate community, establishing effective interface with all the stakeholders. This in turn leads to implementation of total quality education.

Strategic leadership points out a future strategy. That means more than having a plan. It also means working to understand the world where the students live and prepare them to take their place as valued citizens of a global community.


DIFFERENT TEACHING METHODOLOGIES

The school follows different teaching methodologies for better learning and upliftment of the students as well as the teachers. One is-The XSEED Methodology of teaching which stresses on five A’S –Aim, Activity, Analysis, Application and Assessment. It ensures that the children learn, not cram. These steps are to be followed by a teacher to ensure learning and to make it permanent. These skills are needed for the growth of a teacher as well as the students. The other is the Pearson Publications which strives to make education more effective,accessible and affordable to the learners through innovative methods of teaching learning.

TEACHERS’ TRAINING PROGRAMS

A six days workshop on constructivism and cooperative learning technology in education moving the learners from theory to practical was organized in the school. The main aim of this workshop was to help the child (learner) ‘learn how to learn’, to move the children from LOTS to HOTS , to be a friend , philosopher and guide to develop the Emotional Quotient (EQ) of the child as well as change the mindset of the people. It also focused on the use of methodologies of teaching where a child can learn beyond his/her limits. The constructivist approach is action oriented cooperative learning such as pair work, group work, creativity and active participation in classroom activities by preparing various projects.

VISIT TO DIFFERENT SCHOOLS-

Going on a school visit helps the teachers and administrators to see the types of learning activities and experiences are valued in other schools making them move in a new direction. Keeping this view in mind, we at Happy Days make it a point to visit one or two schools every year by organising either teachers’ visits or under the exchange programs.
