Recognizing the importance of relishing each moment and wholeheartedly celebrating life's victories, is a belief that we hold dear at Aarth.
Following a blissful period of rejuvenation, first day of school beckoned, and a special gathering was planned to reunite the dedicated staff members of Aarth Universal School. This occasion fostered deep connections and strengthened the bonds of camaraderie through a series of engaging and enjoyable recreational activities. Various team games were chosen with great care, offering not only entertainment but also imparting a valuable lesson in the significance of teamwork. Games such as Lagori, Ninja, Story Play and Dumb Charades were thoughtfully selected, evoking cherished childhood memories and heartfelt smiles upon the faces of all participants. As the day unfolded, the rhythmic melodies swayed the venue, igniting an atmosphere of joy, as the staff members danced and sang in unison, creating an indelible bond of harmony and comfort.

The most valuable resource that all teachers have is each other. Without collaboration, our growth is limited to our own perspectives. -Robert John Meehan
The second week of training began with a fun “Show and Tell” session conducted by Ms Kaavya Shah, the Events and Cocurricular Coordinator. The teachers shared their stories of their artefacts and later connected them with the IB elements.
This was followed with an insightful session on ‘Infusing Arts into the curriculum’. The teachers watched exciting videos, “Dance with PhD by John Bohannon & Black Label Movement”, “Teaching Tips 1: Using Songs in the Classroom”, “Creative Drama”, etc. and reflected on the importance of incorporating arts into the teaching-learning process.
The core of the PYP, ‘The Learner’, ‘Learning And Teaching’ and ‘The Learner Community’ from the PYP Principles to Practice was dug deep, in small groups. The teachers later presented their understanding of each component and reflected on their understanding..
Ms Reshma and Ms Harshika, the HRTs helped the teachers explore various Thinking Routines and Learning Centres. These strategies helped the teachers to visualise the inquiry cycle in the classrooms. The thoughtful activities planned at each learning centre gave a wide exposure of how the teaching-learning and assessment/reflection can be planned in class across various subjects and grades.
Mr Ravindra, the IT Manager helped the teachers understand the digital platform, Mangebac. The teachers got better equipped in understanding the platform for documenting the planning process and the integration with other subjects. Ms Rushina further helped teachers have a deep understanding of the reporting process, Portfolio and about the communication with parents - why, how, when and what. She also equipped the teachers with different grouping strategies.
The teachers continued with the reflection of ‘Dive into Inquiry’ by Trevor MacKenzie as part of their Book Study. The discussion revolved around Types of student inquiry and The four pillars of inquiry.
The fun energizers and the unique grouping strategies made the learning enjoyable and enriching. Looking forward to the last week of training!!! ... See MoreSee Less
