To all our readers, a very Happy Dussehra and a warm welcome to the October 2021 edition! A time for celebration, a time for victory of good over bad, a time for when world sees the power of good, let us also use the power of education to conquer the evil.
This edition of Edlines Today features D.C. Model Senior Secondary School, Chandigarh in our Big League Institutions. The article highlights the vision of the school along with all the wide infrastructure facilities that the school is equipped with. The Director of the DCM Group of Schools, Mr. Bharat B. Gupta addresses the audience on how teaching and learning should be perceived as a passion, more than a profession. Next, we bring close observations and insights from Mrs. Shikha Tripathi in the Principal’s Desk column on how a leader must be open to new ideas, positive, transparent, patient and collaborative in improving and achieving student and administrative engagement in an institution.
The edition also features an article by Ms. Devyani Kapoor that highlights the importance of teacher training in education as the process of nationbuilding starts from each and every classroom. Teachers are makers of future leaders and for that it is imperative for every teacher to be equipped and trained. We have Mr. Shakeel Ahmad Hakeem in the Rendezvous expressing his views on returning to campus and how can schools accommodate proper counselling and guidance cells and concept of smart classrooms post pandemic.
Next, the Voice of Educator section by Ms. Anju Gupta sheds light on the role of educational leaders and how our school leaders should support and provide with the teachers with right skills and new pedagogies that prepare them to be resilient towards any circumstance, whether it’s today during the pandemic or in the future. Lastly, I hope you all are enjoying our monthly quizzes on the teacher competency sketchpad. Stay tuned!
