Conceptually, 'Sahodaya 'signifies 'Rising Together'. This came into being in the year 1986, to facilitate synergy of ideas among the schools of CBSE family, for Excellence in Education. A Sahodaya School Complex is a group of neighbourhood schools voluntarily coming together to share their innovative practices in all aspects of school education including curriculum design, evaluation, pedagogy and also providing support services for teachers and students.
It is indeed an interactive platform for schools to deliberate upon the different policies and guidelines of the Board and provide effective feedback on their implementation to establish new benchmarks of quality. There is no doubt that much more knowledge is generated when a team or group committed to a common goal undertakes the task of re-modelling and re-fashioning educational practices in a spirit of caring and sharing. Thus Sahodaya introduces the relevance of co-operative learning and collaborative networking. This is further facilitated by the annual Sahodaya Conference held every year to critically examine the relevant issues and evolve a viable and effective framework of action.
