Professional Learning Program (PLP)
PLP has brought a huge transformation in the Educators. PLP has transformed blackboard using teachers into Skilled Educators. IT skills have been developed which is the need of the hour. PLP has developed confidence in the Educators, so now they are able to take the initiative of work beyond Academics. PLP has touched all areas which has brought a great change in Personal and Social Development. Moral Values have been inculcated in the Educators on reading Book of Values. Leadership quality has developed which has helped to take the initiative and responsibility to head different programs like My Good School, PLP Modules etc. in different schools. PLP has enhanced collaboration, communication, writing, reading skills in the Educators. Community relationship has increased. Writing Articles for Blog Post Brewing Knowledge has developed the quality of writing. Educators have enhanced their creative and innovative ideas due to PLP which has strengthened My Good School Program in the school.
Joy of Learning
Vacation is a precious time when we learn many new things with a relaxed and free mind. In the vacations, I learned and made new recipes during the Ramadan month. I read some articles which taught me how to take time for ourselves. During summer vacation I did many things related to my hobby and side job. I had seen many new videos on designing dresses by Amina Boutique(Youtuber) and stitched dresses for my customers. 
I went to Delhi to enjoy my vacation and some work also. My husband had to buy surgical stuff but the market was closed for 3 continuous days. So in the meantime, we decided to do sight seeing in Delhi. I visited some historical places in Delhi like Red Fort, India Gate, Rajghat, Hazrat Nizamuddin Dargah, Parliament House, Qutub Minar, Indira Gandhi Memorial, and Lotus Temple. During this visit, I interacted with many new people and learned a lot. It was a very good experience. Travelling has also helped me in planning, budgeting and do some saving.
Most of the time on vacation I was with my family members and enjoyed a lot. - Ayasha Tak

Human life is a cycle of learning process. Everyday we learn so many things willingly and unwillingly but more so, it gives experiences, good or bad, so we  shouldn't stop to take risk. 
In this summer vacation I learnt and experienced lot of skills which are really connected to our daily lives. I got an opportunity by Principal Ma'am to attend a workshop based on theatre work "Drama in Education Process" at Rajiv Gandhi Foundation, New Delhi.Our mentor was Rajnish Bisht Sir from NSD New Delhi.I did activities eg. role play, eyes breaking, number , name and machine game ,walking-style improvisation, recite and write poems, plantation, puppet making and many more. These activities boosted my energy level, alertness, creativity, audacity,  imagination, leadership quality, confidence, public speaking and many more skills.
I also made many friends who were from different states, spoke different languages, belonged to different cultures, and had unique lifestyle views.
I also visited some famous places like Red fort, India gate, Parliament , and Rastrapati Bhawan.It was fun learning.
After visiting Delhi, I decided to read some famous novels, one of which is  Anita Desai's first novel, "Cry ,the Peacock". Its storyline revolves around 'Maya' who is haunted by childhood prophecy of a fatal disaster. Most of Desai's novels bring into limelight, the lives of women.
Another novel which I read is "Vendor of Sweets", written by one of the famous contemporary Indian writers of English ,Mr. R. K. Narayanan. Narayan's  novel deals with "Malgudi".
R.K. Nathan's The Vendor of Sweets was first published in London in 1967.There is a huge difference between Jagan (main character of the novel) and Mali(Jagan's son). 
Third novel which I read is written by Thomas Hardy, "The Mayor of Casterbridge". The major theme of this novel is 'whatever we do, comes back to us'.
Reading is the best part of our learning so I read blog post of Chetan Bhagat , Rajdeep Sardesai , Vedpratap Vaidik from Dainik Bhasker newspaper. These current blogs keep me aware of political, social, and economic issues. It benefits a lot to improve one's knowledge of his/her nation. I also read "अस्तित्व" column which is specially written for women empowerment. Remaining valuable time was enjoyed with my family and friends. - Urmila Rathore
