From Principal's Desk

Welcome to our second edition of Gurukul Newsletter. In this month various activities were conducted as a part of teaching and learning process, “learning by doing” was centered which engaged students and strengthen their conceptual understanding. Along with academics, students were facilitated and motivated to integrate service as an action and values, Bonding was the theme for the month of August which has benefited all the students to express their emotions. We are proud of our students, teachers and parents who collectively take part in this innovative process which is helping us to replace the traditional ‘imperative to memorise’ with a desire to understand, to apply concepts, to relate to global contexts, and to inquire, communicate and reflect, within the 5 years of the IB-MYP. Students of MYP participated in intra-school English Handwriting competition, the winners were awarded with e-certificates. We are glad that students are enthusiastic and participating actively in competitions and club activities which will help the students to develop holistically. By working together, we can make a real impact on the learning of each and every student.
