June 13, 2019 :- If You Can Read This, Thank a Teacher!

‘Teachers affect eternity, one can never tell where their influence stops.’

A different school of thought, The Shishukunj International School, Indore organized an interactive workshop on ‘ Effective Classroom Management Through Mind Mapping ’ by Dr Dheeraj Mehrotra, a National Award winning academic evangelist, on June 13, 2019.

There was a participation of about 120 ebullient teachers. The cornerstone of this workshop was the effective classroom management using ‘mind maps’ and how to establish rapport with the young minds. Dr Mehrotra threw light on the fact that the Gen Y teachers should not only be tech savvy but also tech strong.

The workshop was cut up into two sessions. The first session concentrated on how AI (Artificial Intelligence) is slowly taking over the entire world, thus teachers of this generation need to walk an extra mile to enable, encourage and endow every child for a lifelong pursuit of learning.

The introduction of the Total Quality Concept of Japan, the 3 K’s – KODO, KAGNE and KAIZEN meaning continuous thinking, continuous acting and continuous improvement of the teachers opened a new horizon.

Dr Mehrotra emphasized the fact that teachers need to understand the students on an individual basis, so they have to be SMART (Systematic, Meticulous, Artistic, Realistic and Tactful). This was followed by a riveting activity for the teachers where they had to design a Mind Map on ‘Classroom Distractions.’

The second session of the seminar had wonderful presentations of the mind maps designed by the educators where they specified the reasons of distractions and the probable solutions. Dr Mehrotra teamed this seminar up with engaging videos on how one should balance the virtual world with real life teaching.

The seminar left the teachers with an augmented knowledge of core competency, team work and situational leadership.


June 11, 2019 :- Workshop on Efffective Classroom Management

The school organised a workshop on June 11, 2019 on ‘Classroom Management’. The resource person was Dr. S. Dijju from Tata Edge .The entire teaching staff of the Senior School was present. He touched upon the various aspects of classroom management including its importance, discipline, preparedness of the educator, creativity, time management, etc. With active participation of the educators, the workshop turned out to be an interesting learning experience.

It was made more interesting by games like ‘Scavenger Hunt’ and ‘Whose Line is the Longest’. The idea behind these games was to make the educators realise how they could think of novel ways to use the available resources, reach out to others, extend their limit to achieve a common goal. The educators were reminded that these strategies can facilitate the teaching learning experience. It will thus benefit and enrich the students in the best possible way.

The workshop was a great eye opener for the educators and they look forward to implementing the various strategies discussed, in their classes.

Mrs. Sharma also threw light on Conflict Management- how to learn and train ourselves to ‘respond’ not ‘react’ to stressful situations. She also gave tips for professional growth and emphasized how important it is for each of us to constantly upgrade ourselves and keep abreast of all the new advancements in our field.

She concluded the session by suggesting two ‘must read’ books: Lean In by Sheryl Sandberg and Die Empty by Todd Henry.

All the educators found the workshop very enriching and felt it would go a long way in making their classes more interesting.

March 09, 2019 :- Excursion to Ranthambor – Class VIII

Students of Class VIII went on an excursion to Ranthambor Wild Life Sanctuary soon after their Final Exams in March 2019.

They all agree that it was an excursion to remember- the early morning rides on the canters to spot the King of the Jungle, listening to a talk by an expert on wildlife, watching the documentary The Tiger Queen , the visit to the Rajiv Gandhi museum of Natural History and of course the DJ night – all added up to make it a wonderful trip. Much to their delight , most of the students did spot the tigress and her cubs.

Besides the sight seeing and fun, a lot many life skills were learnt during this 4 day trip - learning to adjust in a new environment, adjusting with class mates, learning to be independent, respecting and appreciating the environment, were just a few of them.

Travelling to and from Ranthambor by train seemed to be an experience in itself - the students passed their time playing UNO, Taboo, singing songs or just chatting.

October 08, 2018 :- Shishukunj MUN 2018

One of the biggest endeavours of this year, with a participation of over 500 students as leaders and change makers over a course of three days, Shishukunj Model United Nations Conference 2018 was a massive success. Held from 05- 07 October 2018 in the Shishukunj campus itself, delegates discussed issues ranging from disposal of nuclear waste to transnational organized crimes. Along with current issues, the crisis committees were a literal blast from the past as they dealt with the 1990s Latin America.

Platforms like these always empower our fellow schoolmates to step up and grab the opportunity. For the 3 days, our regular school students were transformed into international diplomats, aiming to solve some pertinent world problems. Opportunities like these go a long way in shaping the personalities and a number of skills of the young students and we are confident that it was a learning experience for the delegates as well as the student led Secretariat which organized the entire show with months of hard work and zeal.


The fifth iteration of the Shishukunj Model United Nations Conference was the biggest in number and size.

With participation of over 600 students in 11 committees, in various roles, from delegates to logistics members, it was a learning experience for all. With such an enthusiastic participation right from Classes VI - XII, it is hard to imagine anything else that could give such a learning platform to so many Shishyans.

Standing true to the theme, Ecology, Economy, Equity, all agendas were aligned to discuss the pertinent problems that threaten the fabric of the country. Delegates researched and prepared themselves. Conferences like these help us to be more than ourselves, to empathize and sympathize, to learn and grow, to learn and prosper.
