ISKCON Mira Road Conducts Workshop For Teachers
ISKCON MIRA ROAD CONDUCTS WORKSHOP FOR TEACHERS ON VALUE EDUCATION IN SHANTI NAGAR HIGH SCHOOL (MIRA ROAD)
A workshop on essential values and their implementation was conducted in the month of January from the 28th to the 30th for the teachers of Shanti Nagar High School (primary section) in Mira Road that was headed by H.G. Bhagavati Krupa Devi Dasi partnered with the impactful speaking skills of H.G. Vrndavana Tulsi Devi Dasi (M. Com. [management] & MBA in HR). The workshop held in the school premises with around 40 teachers in attendance aimed at renewing the whole knowledge and application of integral values in the lives of the children by guiding the teachers to learn a whole new way of getting the young minds to be better individuals in the future. The teachers, along with their principal Mr. Diago Tuscany were extremely reciprocative to the whole experience and were willing to learn for the betterment of the children.
The workshop was a basic gist of the values that make an individual today. The interactive nature of it made it more of a group discussion that helped trigger a lot of ideas in the teachers’ minds on how these values can be put to use in the day-to-day lives of the kids. The unique responses by the teachers was a sure sign of victory for our devoted women who represented ISKCON on a public platform. One of the very exceptional responses was from a teacher who claimed that she would ridicule value educationists since she thought they were all the same; but after the workshop conducted by us, her perceptions about the field of soft skill training had changed completely. The impact that the words had on the teachers’minds had to be seen to be believed.
The workshop also helped greatly in understanding the psyche of each teacher and how a change in their thinking would help in initiating a change in the children whose lives they are a part of. It can now be surely said that ISKCON has now established a long term association with the school and it’s staff. ISKCON now plans to take these golden values to many more schools to come and establish a strong Krsna conscious network among the children, God and everyone in between. Hare Krsna!
Felicitation for Shanti Nagar School teachers at ISKCON Miraroad
The workshop conducted by ISKCON Mira Road for the teachers of Shanti Nagar High School was followed by a small programme to acknowledge the participation of the teachers in the workshop and encourage them to pass on the values to the children in school. Over 40 teachers were present for the programme that was conducted on the 1st of February in the Bhaktivedanta Hall in the temple premises. They were welcomed with a short video that showed cultural adaption of the Indian way of life in another country’s state (Texas). It was to signify how Indian culture and values can be rooted into people with different backgrounds which provides as a strong base for inculcation of values in the children of our own country.
A short, insightful speech was later given by H.G. Kamal Lochana Dasa that touched upon the importance of applying values in the lives of children and how it can make one a better individual after which the headmistress of the school Ms. Amita Panesar and a couple of teachers expressed their gratitude and views on the workshop. Later, books by Srila Prabhupada were distributed to all the teachers as a token of thanks for their participation in the 3 day workshop. This was followed by a sumptuous feast prasadam for all the teachers present and hence, making the association of ISKCON with the school stronger by the day. Hare Krsna!
