“Learning is a lifetime process, but there comes a time when we must stop adding and start updating.”
At Atmiya Vidya Mandir we believe that learning is not confined up to the students. We are keen to upgrade and empower the teachers with the guidance of able educationists and efficient faculties, hence a teacher’s training programme and workshop was conducted in the first week of June. The Principal of D.P.S. Harni (Vadodara), Mr.A.K.Sinha, who has been in the education field since last three decades with an excellent track record, addressed the training session. Under his guidance and from his expertise, teachers received a wonderful insight into teaching. He shared his experiences with teachers to prepare them for a better assistance to the students in the learning process. He visits the school very frequently on a fortnight basis to update and enhance the teaching skills of teachers.
In today’s fast growing world change is inevitable and Atmiya Vidya Mandir is always open for changes and development. For example, we have welcomed CCE (Continuous and Comprehensive Assessment) as the basis of student’s holistic development. In order to implement it successfully in the school, a detailed discussion and presentation was organized during the training sessions.
This month offered many reasons to celebrate and among them, most remarkable was performance of grade X students in the CBSE board exams. The very first batch of X Std has passed the exams with flying colours. Out of 24 students who appeared in the exam, 13 students scored above 9 CGPA (Cumulative Grade Per Assessment) and Sarthakbhai Jariwala showed outstanding performance by getting 10 CGPA out of 10 CGPA. Manthvya Patel remained on the edge by scoring 9.8 CGPA. A felicitation programme was held to celebrate this glittering success of all students of X Std.
As Atmiya Family is growing day by day, a new and spacious dining hall was added to meet the demands of the increased strength of the school which is about 520 students this year. It was inaugurated by performing a “Mahapuja” by the saints from Haridham.
In order to develop a sense of social responsibility as well as leadership qualities in students, first time ever, a very comprehensive student-council was formed for which the first round of election was organized. Students cast their valuable vote through electronic voting system to elect candidates for three posts. Out of the nominees from IX and XI Std Sarthakbhai Jariwala from XI (Science) bagged maximum votes for the post of Head Boy and Yashbhai Pachhigar from IX Std was elected for the post of Vice Head Boy. Vikasbhai Patel from IX received maximum votes for the post of Sports Captain.
A welcome party was arranged to cheer the newcomers and for ice-breaking. The welcome party proved to be a fun-filled get-to-gather for all the students. All of them enjoyed the party, a marvelous cultural programme was presented by students of IX and XI std. It was a nice opportunity for all the new students to get along with one another and be a part of Atmiya Vidya Mandir family.
It is rightly said that “learning does not happen in classroom” therefore, in the second last week of the month, Students of grade I, II and III went to amusement park to have fun and frolic. The tiny-tots had unbounded joy with their teachers and Didis in this trip. Students of grade VI,VII and VIII went for a field trip to Kim where they visited textile factory and power looms. It was a very good learning experience for them as they got an opportunity to closely observe the procedure of weaving of thousand of threads altogether to make fabric. Yet another happening in Atmiya Vidya Mandir was a feast arranged by students of grade XI to thank their teachers for their benign support and constant penance.
For the month of June and July, we are celebrating “Towards Atmiyata through Respect, Discipline, and Unity” as the values of the month. During the morning and the evening assemblies, through different thoughts, dramas, speeches and stories, students are inspired to practice these values in their day to day life.
Towards the end of this month, both academic and co-curricular activities are on full swing due to the sincere and joint efforts of teachers, students and hostel staff to reach the destination of achieving a better tomorrow.
Wish u a fantastic month ahead. For detailed updates kindly, visit the school blog at (blog.avm.edu.in).
