Motivational Workshop by Dr. Anil Garg

Motivational speeches are important because they work to inspire us, enhance our creativity, reduce fear & apprehension, offer a new outlook on things, and help to meet other people on the same boat as us.
The teachers of Smt. Sulochanadevi Singhania School experienced all the above after attending a fabulous session by Dr. Anil Garg. Dr. Garg, a PhD in Economics, with over 35+ years of experience in the corporate and academic world, is known as the Sales Guru and is known for converting loss making units into profit. He is also an international motivational speaker, a corporate coach and a faculty of Art of Living.
His thoughts on four wheels of life i.e. body, mind, soul and breath taught the audience that all four in harmony is achieved in the state of equanimity through exercise, breathing and meditation. One can release long hold tension, through the power of slow and deep breathing. His basic techniques of pranayama made the spectators create a stronger connection and control of their breath and also a deeper attunement of their physical, mental and emotional health. Overall, it was an educational session.

‘Evolving Vision’ by Dr. Revathi Srinivasan

Leaders at all stages in an educational institution require opportunities to learn and grow to develop themselves as more sophisticated agents of educational change. A workshop titled ‘Evolving Vision’ was conducted by Director - Education and Principal, Dr. Revathi Srinivasan for the teachers who are in leading roles. This was for all the Singhania schools.

The objective of this workshop was to further enhance their leadership skills. It encouraged them to reflect and improve on their performance by providing opportunities to learn new skills and strategies. One of the most pressing challenges faced in an educational environment is managing human resources efficiently and also providing creative solutions for student related concerns.

With the help of various tactics and activities the participants were made aware of new effectual techniques for increasing organizational effectiveness. Incorporating these methods would lead towards the final goal of fostering positive school culture and improving the overall development of students. Ultimately the workshop was successful in instilling the idea that a good team leader must adopt a holistic approach where they guide their team members while valuing and nurturing their individual strengths.

A Peek into the Adolescent Mind by Shaping Therapies

A workshop on Understanding Adolescents was conducted for the senior section faculty of Smt. Sulochanadevi Singhania School by Dr. Manjiri, Chief Therapist and Founder and Dr. Kavita, HOD Occupational Therapy at Shaping Therapies, an in-house state-of-the-art therapy centre.

The session focussed on parents and teachers dealing with adolescents and the ways to handle their problematic behaviour. It envisaged the use of Occupational Therapy as a means to help adolescents deal with their emotional and behavioural issues effectively. Engaging adolescents in smaller responsible tasks at home or school would not only help them overcome indolence but also develop their self-esteem. A flexible understanding of adolescent behaviour and adult guidance can help adolescents to explore newer opportunities and take responsibilities for their actions.

The discussion stressed on the need for adolescents to take up some form of physical activities as a means to release dopamine that would keep them fit, mentally and physically. Adolescents facing sensory issues or reduced attention span can be taught lessons that are interactive and activity-based within classrooms.

Mental issues in adolescents such as mood swings, depression and self-diagnosed problems can be resolved with responsible parenting or seeking help from experts. Keeping abreast with latest developments as well as a sound understanding of technology will help parents and teachers to understand and communicate with adolescents effectively.

On the whole this insightful and engaging session pre-empted teachers to take note, intervene and provide timely guidance to adolescent learners thereby making their classrooms interactive, vibrant and positive.
