From the Principal’s Desk

Christmas is a fantastic time! The promise of peace, goodwill and a From the growing sense of excitement and expectation, makes this time of year very Principal’s Desk special indeed. This year we have all got more on our minds than just presents. The consequences of corona virus pandemic are being felt all Dr. Vandana Gupta over the world. Let us all come together on this Christmas and make this (Principal, EuroSchool North Campus) time a moment of love & celebration. Let us find some time to combat stress this year. Mindfulness is a way we all can follow and teach our kids to get some peace of mind. Mindfulness comes from Buddhist ideas and practice, and is all about knowing the mind, training the mind and freeing the mind. It might seem difficult at first, but everyone has the ability to be mindful. American psychotherapist and Buddhist teacher, Sylvia Boorstein, describes mindfulness as “opening to or receiving the present moment, pleasant and unpleasant, just as it is, without either clinging to it or rejecting it.” Mindfulness is a strategy to help manage emotions and keep everyone calm. The activities related to nature like seed germination, describing the family members, learning Maths concepts through colouring, appreciating different art forms, all contribute towards learning mindfulness. I feel really elated to present this special edition newsletter which is close to my heart!! The teachers and students at EuroSchool North Campus were privileged and honored to have a rendezvous with Mr. Rahul Deshpande, CEO, EuroSchool and Billabong High School, who took out time from his busy schedule. Let us catch sight of some Christmas fun and plethora of special days’ celebration along with the special interview in this edition of Spark Rekindled !!

Rendezvous with the CEO

Rendezvous with the CEO, Mr. Rahul Deshpande “Leadership is not a position or a title, it is action and example.” – Cory Booker This precisely describes our CEO, Mr. Rahul Deshpande. He is indeed the fountainhead of all the illuminating ideas, idol of knowledge and the source of inspiration to all in the Organisation. As a part of our journalistic venture, we at EuroSchool North Campus organised a tete-a-tete with Mr. Rahul Deshpande. The meeting was effective, inspiring, thought-provoking and gave an insight into the CEO’s thoughts and vision for EuroSchools! Our interviewers, Neha (Head Girl), Vansh (Head Boy) and Gaurav(Team Marshall), Madhumitha (Student editor) along with the Coordinators Ms. Lakshmi Priya, Ms. Divya and the Principal, Dr. Vandana Gupta were obviously intimidated at the very thought of interviewing the CEO but the best part is that Mr. Rahul who is humility personified put everyone at ease! So, the next one hour was fully utilized by the team , bombarding their interviewee with questions about his personal and professional life. Rather these questions garnered insightful, in-depth responses from the CEO.

True Calling…Here are some excerpts from this informal roundtable. Que: How has your personal life influenced your thoughts about education? What inspired you to take a plunge into the education sector which is very different from the corporate sector? CEO: I actually did not envision myself to be a part of the education sector, but the twists and turns throughout my life, had finally led me here. I went from IIM Kolkata to Harvard School of Management, Massachusetts, and the practical pedagogical approach at Harvard, which was based on real-life case studies, sparked my interest towards teaching which made my learning deeper, more practical and rooted in reality. I strongly believe that the aim of a school should be to prepare its students for life. Que: You play the role of an educator as well as a Corporate Head. Which role do you enjoy the most? Could you tell us what you like or dislike about your current position. CEO: Honestly, I’m not an educator. I have tried teaching my own kids and I’m largely unsuccessful! (laughs). I have tremendous respect of teachers as it takes a whole lot of courage to stand before a bunch of bright students who have access to information at the tip of their fingers. But my role is more of a coach who mentors different teams that include administration, expansion, academicians who are designing curriculums and so on. My role is to ensure that everybody is motivated and excited about what they do. Broadly speaking, my role is to put people in the right positions that excite them and are happy to come to work every day and try something new! Apart from that, two things excite me. One is building of Argus and the other, building of new schools!

Education System… Que: There has been a massive change in the education sector with regard to the teaching learning processes. How prepared are we at EuroSchool for an equitable education system as promised in National Education Policy? What is your vision for EuroSchool? CEO: A lot of the ideas that National Education Policy is talking about has been the fundamental tenets based on which the EuroSchools were established. EuroSchool’s core values and principles are actually in alignment with the main goals of NEP viz. balanced education, practical learning, student centred education. A student’s education should allow for him/her to actually think and apply. My vision for EuroSchool, particularly, is to create a balanced, well-rounded curriculum for students who are ‘ready for life’. We aspire to produce young people who are confident, who can think independently and who can make a difference in the world. We are trying to build this in our curriculum by focusing on 21st century skills which are collaboration, critical thinking, creativity, and communication rather than content-based learning, which may be obsolete over time. Que: With Argus which is an ecosystem for teachers, students and now parents in place, do you think self-directed learning will be effective, with the help of such tools and technology? CEO: Argus was launched with an idea to collaborate with the stake holders in the learning system – students, teachers and parents. Lifelong learning is important else we’ll be irrelevant. Each one of us should take the onus of our own learning. This is one of the objectives of Argus which gives the students to learn ‘anytime’, ‘anywhere’. This will in turn change the dynamics of the classrooms. Argus is a work-in-progress as new thinking gets added to it every day. To sum up, self-directed learning through Argus is one of the key elements of our approach.

COVID & Beyond… Que: Sir, with cases drastically going up, what is your opinion about reopening of school? We miss going to school as much as you miss seeing our schools brimming with enthusiastic students. But our parents would definitely not let us go to school now keeping the safety issues in mind. CEO: “Student safety is paramount.” We will ensure that hygiene and safety is maintained at all costs. Most state governments are thinking of opening schools for senior classes where students can come for doubt clearing, prelims and practical exams. We are preparing to create a safe environment for both students and staff by investing in proper equipment, processes, protocols and auditing all of these. This will inspire confidence across the system- parents, staff and students, that we have the ability to manage the operations responsibly. Que: Sir, What changes do you foresee in the physical classroom setting, post Covid? CEO: Firstly, it is important to understand the purpose of a physical school. In a virtual school, there is, no doubt, content dissemination but what makes the physical school stand apart is the development of soft skills – social collaboration, communication, etc. Therefore, schools should be more than mere buildings and classrooms, with more outdoor spaces which allow students to interact outside their classrooms. The future of learning is blended learning with academic transaction that could happen in a virtual environment and students come to school to acquire social skills that are extremely vital. While virtual school has set a platform for inter-school collaborations as students are able to connect across geographies and social groups. Future classrooms will mainly be social spaces for collaboration along with teachers and peer groups.

Personality… Que: Sir, to know a little more of your personal side, could you tell us what motivates you and who has been your role model? CEO: Firstly, my grandfather from whom, I suppose, I acquired the entrepreneurial skills. I’ve had the good fortune to have met some very interesting people. My enthusiasm comes from seeing smiling faces of students when I visit schools. The fact that I am contributing towards creating a young generation of future leaders, is enormously satisfying for me. Que: What are your strengths and how do you capitalise on that? CEO: To find something that you are passionate about and you are excited to do it every day, I think, is everybody’s strength. Then everything else will fall into place. Everybody has got this strength. One has to only discover it. This is exactly what EuroSchool philosophy is. ‘Discover Yourself’. We all have to discover our passion and feel excited to work for it, and then it will not seem like work. The only way to find our passion is to try out a bunch of things. And what better place than a safe environment called school. Que: How do you like to spend your leisure time? CEO: Mostly with my kids. I like to swim and read. I have taken to audio books these days as I listen to it when I’m travelling as well. Presently, I’m into learning human behaviour – how and why people behave the way they do. What are the biological underpinnings of human behaviour, understanding morality and philosophy in human behaviour. This is also something that excites me.

Leadership traits … Que: Sir, you are into multiple activities such as expansion, running schools, etc., yet manage to participate in all the school events. How do you manage your time? CEO: I work for long hours. (chuckles). It comes largely because I’m excited about what I do and enjoy doing it. It doesn’t seem like work to me. I travel extensively, meet people esp., young people and that’s satisfying for me. I like the cut and thrust of a conversation which will leave me thinking. If you really like to do something, you will surely find time for it. Que: If you were to describe yourselves in 3 words, what would they be? According to you, what are the attributes a leader must possess? CEO: Curious, Passionate and Energetic. As a leader, it is important to listen. The leader should have the ability to work with people in order to get the best ideas and synthesise them to make decisions based on that. Another important thing is to surround yourselves with people smarter than you. This will help you to make better decisions. Have the courage to stand by your decisions and the humility to accept when you are wrong.

Signing Off… The Principal and the panelists feel extremely honoured for having spent quality time with our CEO Mr. Rahul Deshpande and got to know more of his professional and personal side. This one-odd-hour in his company left us with a lot of take-aways. His advice to the students… “If you take ownership “Travel to new places of your own learning, and meet people.” you will go very far in “Jump in at the deep end of the “Discover new life.” pool and find your way through. ways of thinking.” You may be considered young “Have a range and be and brave or young and foolish. interested in multiple things. Bravery and Foolishness are two This will broaden your sides of the same coin! ” horizon and will enrich your “Dedicate time and life.” effort to read new things.” Our CEO is, no doubt, a person who walks the talk!

Class Activities

Pre-Primary Pink Day Celebration The Pre-Primary wing of EuroSchool North Campus celebrated Pink Day. It was wonderful to see our tiny tots bloom and blossom in different shades of pink- of their favourite cartoon characters. The activity aimed to make the young ones identify the objects in pink colour or things they usually see around them. Children were explained that pink colour signifies love, beauty and kindness. They were very excited to learn that the pink colour could be obtained by mixing red and white. It was indeed a visual treat to witness the little ones speaking confidently about their favourite pink cartoon characters.

Pre-Primary Pajama Party Pajama Day is the day on which the children were thrilled with the idea of wearing their pajamas and to see all their classmates and teachers do the same! Some children were wondering if they needed to sleep right away; some were so proud of their pajamas and some even brought along their favorite bedtime stories and toys. Their regular morning routine was replaced with a series of special activities including mattress games, bed-time stories and learning about the importance of sleep in our life. As a token of take away, the children were given an opportunity to make their own hot chocolate milk along with their classmates which further added to their excitement. After drinking chocolate milk, the little once got comfortable to watch a movie with puffy popcorn. After that, a soothing song was played to put them to sleep and make them travel to their dream world.

Weeklong Pre-Primary Learning with Fun The Pre-Primary wing started their week learning and exploring new concepts, colours and so on. Here are a few glimpses of the activities. Colour Introduction: Identifying colours in their early childhood helps build cognitive pathways between visual clues and words. Clay modelling: Clay modelling is a fun way to play, create something and it also helps in developing their motor skills, problem -solving skills, therapy of expression, self esteem and imagination. Art & Craft: Gives children a sense of achievement and allows them to take pride in their work which builds confidence. They get to try new things, develop patience, math concepts and creativity etc.

Grades 1-2 Describing Words Activity Describing words or Adjectives help paint a picture in the reader’s mind. To reinforce the concept Grade 1 English students had an activity. Variety is a key to it. The students not only described themselves but also enthusiastically described their brother, sister, favourite toy, place, ice-cream, the list is endless.

Seed Germination Grades 1-2 Activity The students of Grade 2 learnt about the process of seed germination through a fun activity. This taught the children an important concept that the seeds need adequate amount of water to germinate. In the weeklong activity, the children then transferred the sprouted seeds to pots containing soil. The children were delighted to see the sprouts develop tender leaves and grow into young plants. They took great care to nurture the plants and proudly displayed them in the class.

Parts of the Plant and Grades 1-2 their Functions Student of grade 2 learnt about plants and their different parts in this activity.

The children had used various things which were available at home like grains, rubber bands, bindis, etc. to represent atoms and molecules. The children showcased their creativity and showed a lot of enthusiasm while participating. In the end learning outcomes were, children understood the arrangement of molecules in 3 different forms ( solid, liquid and gases) and learning reinforcement was done.

Division in Kitchen Grades 3-5 Activity Who Cares, We Won The Division - rightly said by Brain Urlacher. Grade 3 children enjoyed and understood better with the help of an activity. It is scientifically proven that the human brain is hardwired to earn and absorb concepts better with practical applications instead of theory knowledge. Children were asked to find Dividend, Divisor ,Quotient and Remainder using vegetables and legumes (Rajma /Channa).

Grades 3-5 2D vs 3D Shapes 3D shapes are made up of flat surfaces which are in turn 2D shapes. Whenever we trace the outline of the 3D shapes on a plane, we get a 2D shape depending upon the 3D shape which we are using. To make this concept clear, children of Grade 3 were made to trace one of the surfaces of different 3D shapes on the A4 size sheet paper. Children were enthralled during the tracing process of different 3D shapes and colored them using crayons or color pencils. They enjoyed doing this activity and learnt the concept very well through the activity.

Currencies of Grades 3-5 Different Countries Teaching children about money is never just about money - Dave Ramsey Children of Grade 4 enjoyed and understood concept of currencies of different countries better with the help of research.

They also made presentations on protected areas i.e., national parks, wildlife sanctuary and biosphere reserves.

The Skit ( From a Grades 6-8 Student’s Perspective) A few days ago, our teacher asked us to do a skit based on a chapter titled “The Pipe-lighter”. Many of my friends volunteered , but only five people were selected. There was a lot of excitement on the day of the skit. Before the skit started, I saw all of my friends dressed up in hats, fake mustaches and fancy clothes. Everyone was eagerly waiting for the skit to begin. The skit started with a lot of enthusiasm. All my friends were well prepared and enacted their characters with a lot of interest and energy. It was all immaculately planned and well performed. We had a lot of fun and the actors did a wonderful job. By: Rachit Chandra -8C
