VIBGYOR Group of Schools wins “Innovation in Learning” award

Ever since its advent in 2004 under the able leadership of Mr. Rustom Kerawalla, VIBGYOR Group of Schools has been working towards providing quality education to students all across the country through its integrated learning system. On 6 July 2017, VIBGYOR was awarded the “Innovation in Learning” Award for Excellence in Best in Class Learning & Development at the World HRD Congress. The award was received by Vice Chairperson, Ms. Kavita Sahay, who represented VIBGYOR at this prestigious event held at Taj Land’s End, Mumbai.

VIBGYOR’s innovative learning approach goes beyond merely the academic curriculum at each of the schools. Students are encouraged to participate in various extra-curricular activities, as well as events which complement their classroom learning, in order to inculcate a level of enthusiasm in them. With teachers providing individual attention to every student, the children are exposed to a motivating environment, where they explore their own strengths and weaknesses. In this manner, students are able to understand their own potential, and are empowered to tackle various challenges in their own creative, individual manner.

Apart from being highly qualified trainers, the teachers also play the role of mentors to the children, tackling issues which extend from classroom learning difficulties to various general aspects as well. In this manner, they ensure that every child is provided with an environment that makes them feel comfortable and open to self-expression.

VIBGYOR Group of Schools looks at the holistic development of each of its students as its main objective. In order to facilitate the same, the schools have state-of-the art lab equipment, computers for students to work on, high-end sports gear, performing arts initiatives, and multiple national and international events held periodically to provide exposure to the students. Students are also taught the importance of valuing cultural differences and adapting to changes in the world. From being special-needs friendly to inculcating societal values in the children, VIBGYOR’s focus has remained on ensuring that every student gains the qualities required to be a global citizen, and natural leader.

We are proud to announce that these steps taken by VIBGYOR Group of Schools to provide innovative and reliable educational institutions have resulted in the achievement of yet another milestone. A big thanks to all who have supported us through this journey.

The 21st Century Student

Kavita Sahay Rapidly changing times, a generation of dynamic youth exposed to a wealth of information, and parents wondering about the legacy their children will inherit.

The future will be drastically different from what it is now and equipping our children with the right survival skills is crucial. The world today is dominated by a few factors that require observation and understanding. Climate change is now an undeniable reality. Technology, with its rate of progress, will eliminate many current applications.

So, what are the pre requisites to be successful in the future? What should the children imbibe to become inheritors of an idyllic world?

Most importantly, emotional intelligence and creativity will go a long way to make our children resilient. Add to that a passion to excel in one’s chosen field. Keeping the ear to the ground, developing an open minded approach, seizing opportunities that come along, also, a willingness to be a lifelong learner.

For young people, thinking of themselves as a work in progress, as continuing on their journey to excellence, is a fantastic attitude to cultivate. It keeps one feeling young and fresh and raring to go.

To be close to nature and aware of issues is also imperative. This sensitivity led a 16 year old girl from Bengaluru to develop an app to monitor water pollution in lakes. She not only won awards and accolades for her work but a minor planet in the Milky Way is going to be named after her.

Let us inspire our children to think positively for the present and the future.
Let us tell them:
Dream and keep dreaming…keep adding to your dreams…let them soar as high as your imagination can take you. Work to achieve your dreams. And then you will be one among the stars.
