English Language and Teaching Skills Workshop

Workshop conducted at Bali from 24th June to 29th June 2013, by Ms Brinda Ghosh and Mr Suhhasish Ghosh. Ms Ghosh is a specialist in English language skill development. Subhasish's focus is on teaching through art, developing imagination and creativity in children etc. 
Conducted in the brand new AV Room, the event was a great way to start a new term. The focus was on the pre-primary and primary sections. They have done several short and long term training programmes for Montessori and primary schools from reputed institutions. Established  teacher trainers and conduct workshops at several schools. The workshop content varies as per the need of the institution but mainly centres around developing English language using Montessori, Froebel and progressive methods of teaching.
The Fabindia School Workshop was designed for the primary and pre-primary teachers and focused on building literacy and numeracy skills from the earliest classes. This was incorporated with age/class specific sensory and motor development activities. The sessions were largely inter-active and dwelled on building the four skills of language learning - Listening, Speaking, Reading and Writing. The methodology introduced was not from a particular school of thought , but an amalgamation of best practices in progressive schools. Mr. Ghosh's sessions focussed on developing imagination and creativity in children from the earliest stage and incorporating art/ craft in the classroom.

Looking forward to the new Term

The School opens on the 1st of July 2013, work is on at a feverish pace to complete the new Science Labs, upgrade campus utilities, new AV Room, English Language Lab, new Bus to join the fleet, new Primary Campus is nearing completion and more...

On the 24th the Teachers start work and the term begins for them with workshops conducted by Mrs Brinda Ghosh and Mr Shubhashish Ghosh. The week long workshops focus on teaching English and using Art as a medium to teach the Primary School students.

On the first day of July near 100 new students are scheduled to join the school. This year we are offering one hundred Scholarships. We hope girls will take the benefit of the Scholarship Programme in larger number. Thanks to the John Bissell Scholars Fund for supporting the Scholars at The Fabindia School.

More excitement as the new School Management System goes on-line and www.fabindiaschool.net will help us deliver better. Finally we are happy to welcome new members of Staff and Mr Atul Bhatt who joins us as Manager Training & Development - a new position created to help the school build a better team and partner with institutions to improve education quality.

With best wishes,
