Message from Principal Dear all First of all, I would like to pay my homage to Mr Dinesh Chajjer, HOD Computer Science, who suddenly departed for his heavenly abode. His good memories will always remain in our hearts. When I look back at the session that began in March 2018 till its nearing closure in March 2019, I feel satisfied at the progress the school has made. We are a PYP Candidate school now. “The PYP focuses on the development of the whole child, and provides a framework that can meet a child's academic, social, physical, emotional and cultural needs. It is inquiry based and lends itself to being integrated across the curriculum. Students take ownership of their learning and develop skills and attitudes to help prepare them for life in a global world. The PYP also caters for all the different kinds of learners you get in the classroom. There is literally something for everybody. The PYP also tends to let students get a deeper understanding of the topic. The PYP is great! Once you're child has experienced it, there's no turning back. Be warned!” (A Hitchhiker's Guide to the PYP.) The second batch of IGCSE and the first batch of AS Level will finish their board exams on 8th March 2019. Our newly started Department of College Placement Guidance and Counselling will ensure better placement opportunities for our students after their A Levels. Not only placement, the cell also will work towards strengthening behavioural patterns of the students as well as assisting in grooming their personalities. Courtesy this department, the school could sign an MOU with the President of St George's University; this is no less than an achievement for us to enable our students aspiring for medical to get their education from there with a possibility for scholarships. We have also become a SAT Center. Bodhi is the only school in Jodhpur offering this facility. I would like to pay my tribute to our parents for their unceasing support and standing by us through thick and thin. Dear Parents, I am grateful to you! I am also thankful to my staff and students for raising their bar of performance each time with each challenge. I am hopeful that the next session will be a further promising one. Sincerely Venunadhan B. Pillai Principal

Boosting Your College Application The primary goal of higher education is to adequately prepare students to achieve success in their future careers. While facing a certain level of academic rigor and gaining important life skills can be considered crucial facets of career preparedness that students receive during their school days, more and more importance is being placed on the value of experiential learning. Summers are the best time for high school students to utilize and start looking at the most productive ways to spend their time away from school. While some of them will prefer to travel and visit their relatives or have a short vacation, the ideal way for high schoolers will be to look for a summer program, internships, community services or job shadowing experience. This will not only help them in making their portfolio look noticeable but also will help them in getting trained on essential transferable skills. Let's figure out the basic peculiarities of the three options to make the right choice: Job Shadowing: Job shadowing is an experience where you spend a day or a few days observing a professional on the job. While job shadowing, you can easily learn about different jobs and help decide which careers you would enjoy the most. Job shadowing is popular with students because it introduces them to different careers and helps them decide which jobs would be the best fit for them. It will also help in understanding the skills, training and personality traits

required for a specific role and most often students' myths about a certain role or career are dispelled. Job shadowing is especially helpful because knowing which jobs you enjoy can help you decide on a major when you begin applying to colleges. A job shadow usually lasts one day, but there are cases when they can last several days to give you a more in-depth look at a certain career or company. Internships: An intern is an assistant or trainee working to gain practical experience in an occupation. Internships are an excellent way to gain experience in a career field of interest as well as an opportunity to try out one or more careers by getting behind the scenes look at what it is actually like working in the field. Students can apply their classroom learning experience in the professional environment, gain coveted work experience and establish critical networking connections in the future world of work. Usually the internships are of longer duration like 4-8 weeks or more and these could be paid or unpaid. Students can take up several internships to get exposure to a variety of related jobs or even to check out various careers of interest. There are many internships offered online through internship sites such as monstertrak,, Letsintern,, etc. Volunteering/Community Services: Volunteering is simply the act of 'Voluntarily' giving your time and energy to help a cause. Normally, the volunteer receives no tangible benefits from the work except the fact that the experiences can be personally enriching and life changing sometimes. For instance, a student who seems directionless might find his call when exposed to such experiences. Volunteers are not bound by a contract of employment unlike interns. Nevertheless, volunteers should sign a volunteer agreement in order that both the charity or organization and the volunteer are protected and are aware of the expectations. Students these days can also choose to start their own work as a club to contribute to any cause or work virtually by contributing their expertise in technical skills, digital marketing, designing, fund raising etc. As this is not a time bound activity, students can be a part of the organizations for lifetime as well.

Summer Programs: Summer programs from various universities and schools are offered to the high schoolers to get a foretaste of the courses, skills and places that the students might be planning for the future. These are offered by the best of universities around the world and the process of applications could be very competitive but this also prepares students to understand the college applications and the universities. The idea is to experience the campus, the faculty, the courses and the local culture during the program as it helps the students in short listing their choices of courses, colleges and countries. These programs are offered in India as well as abroad. Also, the programs like Yale Young Scholar Program, Young Social Leader Program, and Wheaton College Global Leaders Program are excellent opportunities to the students to develop 21st Century skills like leadership, collaboration, critical thinking and communication. The major benefits that I have observed as a college advisor are that the students become independent, self-reliant and good decision makers. You may also look at some other options like taking an online course from educational portals like,,, to upskill yourself in specific domains like programming, design, coding, psychology, art, digital marketing, accounting etc. These courses are available to anyone and everyone as there are no pre-requisites except the willingness to learn.
