Oustanding Schools of the Year 2021

The Indian Education system has seen a gigantic transformation over the past decades. Starting with the ancient Educational systems comprising the Gurukula system of education to the modern online education system where technology integration is the major component in every school. With the introduction of New Education Policy 2020, the schools have changed a lot of guidelines and have made the necessary changes to meet the demands of the policy. The New Education Policy aims to transform India into a vibrant knowledge society making both school and college education more holistic, flexible, multidisciplinary, suited to 21st century needs and aimed at bringing out the unique capabilities of each student. “The recommendations of NEP 2020 are radical and path breaking. Implementation of NEP, 2020 requires thorough planning, training of staff and implementation in true spirit”. stated Mr. Prashant Parashar, the HOS and Manager of the N.K Bagrodia Public School, talking to us about the functioning of N.K Bagrodia Public School pertaining to the rules and regulations set by the NEP 2020. The school has always been proactive in leading from the front and leading by example. Keeping the new policy in mind, the school and the teacher educators were motivated and educated and encouraged to attend a quality training programme on NEP 2020. The objective of NEP is to give equal emphasis on all subjects-science, social sciences, art, languages, sports, mathematics- with integration of vocational and academic streams in school. Keeping these in mind Kalinga International School provides student academic growth through experiential learning, the faculty and management not only focus on the curriculum but also takes care of the overall growth and development of the student- Dr. Mona Lisa Bal, Chairperson, Kalinga International School stated- “The students are encouraged to explore their strengths and even identify their limitations and work on them, through different ATTL skills. Kalinga International School follows a holistic approach in educating the students”. The education system in India has witnessed a revolution in terms of technology involvement, Although, India is famous for its number of educational institutions but only some are able to provide the top-quality educational environment to the students to develop their social skills. By 2025, at least 50% of learners through the school and higher education system shall have exposure to vocational education. Emphasising on this point, and talking about how PS Senior Secondary School has succeeded in this very endeavour, Dr. Revathy Parmeswaran, HOD(Mathematics), at the school quoted, “Various learning methods are employed like activity based learning, project based learning, Art integrated learning, experiential learning i.e. learning by doing. Inquiry based learning is used to inculcate critical thinking and problem solving skills amongst students at P.S Senior Secondary School”.
