This was a teacher training workshop with two phases: initially a leadership program to develop teachers professionally and personally, inspiring creativity and encouraging them to be role models for their students, and later to support them in aligning their personal vision with the vision of their institution.
At the start, a leadership program to develop teachers professionally and personally, to inspire them to be creative and inspirational role models for their students and later to support them in aligning their personal vision with the vision of their institution.
The dramatic change in the teachers not only created an enriching learning environment for the children but led to a request by older students to experience the same. As an experiment, 40 students of Grade 8 and some teachers, participated in a 3 day residential workshop held at the sylvan location of the Chinmaya Vibhooti centre near Pune. From art, music, film discussions to speech training, talks on human values and conflict resolution, children were exposed to facets of life that were enriching experiences. Bansuri’s support and guidance helped start a process where every child’s voice was now heard at the ashramshala.
