“Children must be taught how to think, not what to think.” -Margaret Mead
The team at BHIS in Mumbai has used these research findings to build the curriculum for all its partner schools
In the process, we have made BHIS an exciting, challenging & enjoyable environment for all. Our learning facilitators are dedicated to providing an engaging and stimulating environment where all learners feel valued, ideas flourish and students realise their full potential.
Let’s making learning fun …
Using the learning outcomes of the CBSE board, the educators of BHIS strive to make the learning environment engaging and fun. The teaching processes and technology are meaningful and purposeful, and each student is helped to absorb and understand at a pace they can manage.
A well-educated mind will always have more questions than answers. Helen Keller
The parent-teacher-student partnership:
Most of the content based modules revolve around three stakeholders viz. the teachers, parents and students. Modules range from interactive pedagogy for enhancing the classroom experience for the learners, to the importance of sleep for school going children and developing an emotional bond between the mother and child. While students are immersed in learning and extracurricular activities, we think teachers should also be given opportunities to evolve and grow. Our Teaching and Development department aims at teacher enhancement not only to teach in class but also to interact with children in general and communicate effectively to parents.
Quality Assurance: Even Students have a say …
The Teaching & Development team from BHIS Mumbai, as part of Quality Assurance, conducts visits to schools observing teachers in action while giving constructive feedback.
Students’ feedback is also welcome at this stage. The Quality Assurance team observes the physical, social & emotional environment of the school, and makes suggestions for improvement. The team at present also looks at providing students with appropriate subject choices in order to guide their future careers.
The BHIS Mumbai team, in collaboration with the school leadership team, prepares an individualised action plan so as to strengthen the learning experience for students. Our goal is to become a supreme learning ground for all our learners.
Transformation is the key to success …
Professional Development (PD) provided plays a crucial role in successful education reform. It bridges the gap between where potential and experienced CBSE educators are now, and will need to be in the future, to meet the new challenges of guiding our students to achieve higher standards of learning and development.
At BHIS Kelambakkam, professional development goes beyond the term ‘training’ with its implications of learning skills, and includes formal and informal means of helping our teachers to develop new insights into pedagogy and enhance their own practice. It also helps them explore new or advanced understanding of content and resources.
The way forward …
The journey has been a long yet satisfying one, but there is more to learn and achieve on the road ahead.
Being ranked amongst the top Schools in India has encouraged us to work with deeper passion and commitment and the credit of our achievements goes to every parent, teacher and student who has believed in us.
