From the Chair Person’s desk
It is with great pride that I pen down this as the founder president of this magnificent institution- Gyan Sarovar.
Gyan Sarovar was born in the year 2004 with just 6 likeminded schools who believed in growing together and sharing together which is what the real meaning of Sahodaya is.
In our first meeting we brain stormed on christening our sahodaya and unanimously named it “GYAN SAROVAR” because as we dive into the water, we are able to find pearls every time to dive, we said we would get pearls of wisdom every time we met. Members agreed on the thought “I have one idea and you have one. When we share them you have two ideas and I too have two ideas”. A great camaraderie was the immediate outcome!
As the years passed by we have been snow balling in numbers and more and more schools have started believing in what we believe in. The number increased as we put in our most sincere effort in scholastic and co scholastic enrichment of our schools.
The general body meetings are learning experiences for all participants. There are discussions on CBSE programs like OTBA, ASL, PSA. This helps the schools in the interior and new schools which may need a little assistance. There are discussions on how to use RTE for the benefit of the society, Promotion policy under RTE etc.
Some of our regular programs are:
Principal’s conference- This has become a regular feature wherein we invite eminent persons from the field of education and the themes are Leading change in schools, Sustainable development, Activating recommendations of NCF 2005, technology integration in education to name a few.
Teacher training programs- If schools are to provide quality education to prepare global citizens worthy to chisel tomorrow’s India, teachers should be trained on continuous basis. We conduct training programs for all faculty members inviting resource persons who specialise in their field. Such programs are conducted on the same day at different venues so that schools can plan a holiday on 2nd or 4th Saturday to enable all teachers to attend the program. We also conduct workshops to train them in finer nuances of Continuous and Comprehensive Evaluation and how to document and maintain records for submission of evidences.
Athletic Meet- There are many bodies which conduct competitions for high school students so we decided to conduct athletic meet for middle school students and had a whopping success. We mean to repeat this every year. We had 100 meters, 200 meters, 400 meter and relays races for boys as well as girls.
Today We are a family of more than 70 members and we pledge to remain united as ever!
