On how the pandemic has accelerated the technological disruption of education

In his May vlog, our Head of School, Dr @Geoffrey Fisher, talks about how he’s looking forward to presenting diplomas to the Class of 2022 and attending school events in person. He shares his views on how the intersection of learning and technology in the post-pandemic world, even as it disrupts education as we know it today, will continue to enrich and augment the learning experience and what B.D. Somani is doing to ensure we’re ready for this shift.

Magazine de santé (Health Magazine)

Grade 9 students at B.D. Somani curated a magazine as a part of their study on “health”. Ms Manasvini helped the students to complete their work and create a full-fledged magazine. The magazine consisted of health tips on Covid advice, eating right, avoiding stress, puzzles, and other helpful information on healthy eating. Creating the magazine helped the students engage in some deep research, hone their writing skills in French and help them to learn working in a team.
