The education of a human being should begin at birth and continue throughout his life. The Mother has said,”There is a genius within everyone of us – we don’t know it. We need fire to make it come out – but it is sleeping, it asks for nothing better than to manifest ; we must open the doors to it…..Aurobindo Ashram.
Seth M.R. Jaipuria School is grateful to Mr. Shiv Kumar from the Aurobindo Ashram, Puducherry who was on the campus on 1st and 2nd of July, 2018.Mr. Kumar had sessions with the entire teaching staff of the school.The sessions were interactive sessions where Mr. Kumar dealt with topics related to; how to become a good teacher, acquiring a deeper understanding of the self to understand the child.Mr. Kumar was of the opinion that we all should have a dream for human reformation.When we have a dream we need to acquire it.And when we interact with children we need to develop the qualities of truthfulness, honesty, courage and very important unconditional love.
Education Centre i.e the school is one of the best means of preparing the future humanity to manifest upon earth a divine consciousness and a divine life. Channelising emotional energy and mastering our impulses is an achievement. Building a relation with children, to become their facilitators and not teachers. Practices through which learning can be made meaningful is an ideal situation for the teacher – child relationship.
Mr. Shiv Kumar was of the opinion that the need of the hour is shifting from industry centric to child centric education.A radical approach to education should be the emphasis. With brain storming activities for the teachers made the sessions very interesting and informative.
Our gratitude to Mr. Shiv Kumar who made each teacher open its door for a change in the inner self, to become a good teacher.
