                  LEARNING FORWARD  
                                                               POSITIVE THINKING
Positive thinking leads a man to success. One who thinks that he can achieve something will put his best to achieve, will not fetter by the problems in the path of success and will win positively. Self confidence, determination and hard work are the key factors for success. Every small or big, easy or complex problem have its solution.
Where there is a will there is a way. If you find any problem, a typical one, don't lose heart, go ahead and devote yourself fully, analyse each aspect, and get the problem solved. For a confident person, the word 'impossible ' is no where in his dictionary. Dedication, devotion to the task and positive thinking with determination have been the important factors of success of every successful person.
'A winner never quits and a quitter never wins' shows that one who constantly tries to achieve something, one who endeavours hard incessantly to achieve something, he is the winner, later or sooner, but a quitter could never be a winner.
Your biggest assets are your enthusiasm that  is enriched with your positive thinking. Never lose hope, keep smiling and be cheerful put the best possible efforts with your involvement and have confidence in you and you will be the winner. Through positive thinking one can overcome the mountains. One who always think positively even in adverse situations will always be a winner. -    -Kavita Devda/ Educator

The School Weekly - 19th February 2018

Compassion is the feeling of sympathy and understanding each other. Compassion is necessary for all and it plays a pivotal role in the life of teachers. It helps the teachers to understand their students well and create an happy atmosphere in the school campus. Many teachers believe that taking a strict approach towards their students is best. But this is not fruitful. It gives poor results and students build a negative impression of their teacher. They are scared of such teachers and are even scared to ask questions. But on the other hand a compassionate teachers class is lively. The students love and respect their teacher and they start trusting their teacher. They feel free to share their problems with their teachers. The simplest way to show that you care for your students is to motivate and praise them. The teacher can talk privately aside with those who do not feel free to share their problems in the classroom. A teacher should not humiliate or hurt his students feelings. A compassionate teacher is one who does not hold any grudge against his students and forgives him for his mistakes. Love, care, understanding, forgiveness, trust and respect given by a teacher helps his student to be free of stress and leads to him to success.- Bharti Rao/ Educator

Education vs. Learning
Education can be defined as the process through which a society passes on the knowledge, values and skills from one generation to another. Learning can be defined as the acquiring of new skills, knowledge, and values. Both learning and education have a great influence on the mind and character of an individual. However, learning is the basic instinct possessed by all individuals, and, on the other hand, education is acquired by individuals. On the contrary, learning is the process of adopting knowledge, values and skills. Learning is said to be an on going process. An individual is always learning, from his birth till his death. Education is something that one gets at some point in their life. If learning is an informal process then education is a formal process. Education is something that one gets from a school or university; education is related to classroom learning, and some other set standards. On the contrary, learning evolves at the personal level, for which there are no set standards. A tutor imparts education, whereas an individual learns from his surroundings. Learning is knowledge gained through experience, and education is knowledge gained through teaching. Education can be said to be well organized, whereas learning is something that is related to an individual’s perception. - Gajendra Mewara/ Educator

Concentration means to focus on one particular thing. For teaching and learning concentration is very important. Without concentration on anything we cannot get success in any work we are doing. A child who is not able concentrate on his studies cannot succeed in his/her work.
If anyone does his work and pays attention towards his work he/she can surely get success. A person whose mind is concentrated receives inspirations in his work and his thinking. Concentration has many uses and benefits. It assists in studying, improves the memory and helps in focusing on a task, achieving goals more easily and efficiently. When the ability is strong, the mind obeys you more and does not engage in negative thoughts or worries.
To develop the power of concentration we need to train or exercise your mind. Concentration increases your memory and it gives us inner happiness. It helps to increase our ability to do our work effectively and we surely get success in our work. Concentration is the key of success. -Ayesha Tak/ Educator
