A flurry of activity on campus; happy days

Our Head Of School, Dr Geoffrey Fisher, in his newest vlog, shares his joy about the wonderful activities that have been taking place since school reopened. In particular, he underlines the importance of field trips and other modes of experiential learning, which contribute to the school’s focus on individualised learning for each student. 

He also shares his satisfaction with the recent Parent Teacher meeting, where parents had the chance to meet teachers and discuss their child’s needs, progress and achievements. 

Dr Fisher appreciates the hard work of the new faculty members, many of whom he met in person for the first time, and congratulates them for their integration into the school.

He applauds the work being done by the Primary teachers to promote B.D. Somani’s Progressive approach to education that uses differential and experiential learning to shape students into lifelong learners, both within and outside the classroom. The Block Building program, as well as regular trips to museums, streets and other places of interest, contribute to students’ development, guided by their teachers. 

Dr Fisher also talks about the school garden, which is flourishing in this monsoon season, and how it helps to introduce students to the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals.

He shares a recent moment he witnessed as he walked into school – a group of kindergarteners “wriggling with joy” at the prospect of playing a game on the field. This scene delighted Dr Fisher,  and he hopes that this joy percolates the entire B.D. Somani community as they rededicate themselves to learning every single day.

Reflections in Indo-French Exhibition: Science beyond borders

Our young adults from Grade 11 visited the ‘Science Beyond Borders’ exhibition organized by Institut Français in collaboration with Consulat général de la France en Inde on 29th September. They learnt about the partnership between France and India: the exchanges between Indian mathematicians and French scholars that started from ancient times to the modern-day partnership in Nuclear Sciences. Interdisciplinary experiences such as these are crucial for the overall development of our students as IB learners.

Child-Centric Education: The Hows and the Whys

In his newest vlog, our Head Of School, Dr Geoffrey Fisher, talks about child-centric education, B.D. Somani International School’s unique approach that keeps the child at the focal point of the learning journey. Dr Fisher explains that this entails differentiated learning, where each child’s needs and skills are considered when devising curricula and teaching methods. It also means a values-based education that is individualized for every student and oriented towards the future while rooted in the past. Each student has a unique pathway as they traverse through the world of B.D. Somani’s child-centric education. Dr Fisher acknowledges the teachers’ hard work in making sure that each pathway is fulfilling, all-rounded, and, most significantly, curated to bring forth the best from each child.
