Education is not learning the facts but training the mind to think – Albert Einstein
Training the mind to work creatively, commending and using the knowledge in real life situations should be the aim of our society. Many of us define education as acquisition of information, and rely a lot on rote learning. To change this notion, Mount Litera Zee School, Wagholi has taken the initiative to provide that extra bit and go that extra mile with innovation and skill developmental plans. The school’s summer camp focuses on integrated learning through critical
thinking and building strong moral fiber. Breaking free from mundane routine, the camp includes a lot of activities like experimentation, robotics and interactive Mathematical activities. Verbal dexterity is made easy with Talk shows and interactions. With multilingualism, students get the opportunity to learn French through fun activities. Dance, art and craft, fitness, games and fireless cooking synergized to give a different perception about life through insight and holistic approach. Fostering environmental values and action, an activity named ‘Little Environmen-talist’ was organized.
To bridge the gap between the known and unknown, concrete and abstract, inclinations and application is the goal of the school. To promote individuality and identity, the facilitators at the school made sure each student is nurtured well to explore and celebrate uniqueness. To translate the vision of the school into reality, director Radhashree Singh and the principal Divya Puri along with the team have left no stone unturned. Their effort to leave an imprint and be a driving force for character-building and self-discovery will continue in future. The recent camp ended with a mega event, with some fun and games.
The mega event was a collaborative activity for the parents. The school enlightened and elucidated the outlook of the school towards education and holistic development of the children. The school has also planned to provide a free robotics workshop for the students in the age group eight to 13 years and a phonics work-shop for ages three to seven years in the coming week as well.
