“If all that we see are the scattered pieces of ‘what was,’ the story of ‘what is yet to be’ will never be told. If, however, we are able to envision the pieces as what they are now, free to be, the story of ‘what is yet to be’ will stand among the greatest ever told.” — Craig D. Lounsbrough
The COVID-19 pandemic has caused an unparalleled crisis in all areas. In the field of education, as we all know, to mitigate its impact and protect the children, this emergency led to the closure of face-to-face activities of schools all across the globe.
However, the closing of schools was not synonymous with stopping of education. Rather, the education system could revamp and refurbish itself to meet the demands of stay-at-home-learn-at-home and digital models of learning. When the entire world was adjusting to the new normal, Blue Bells rose to the occasion and left no stone unturned to transform disaster into opportunity to learn better. We learnt innovative means of carrying forward the teaching-learning transaction.
With the support of all the stakeholders, we were ready to shift the entire education set-up online in no time. We realized the importance of remoulding the appropriate pedagogy to meet the demands of the learners. Inclusion of varied aspects such as art integration, collaborative teaching strategies, and inter-disciplinary approach even in the online mode triggered the suitable outcomes. Designing of online activities, tools and assessments helped in restoring the parents’ and students’ confidence in the system, despite the challenges posed by the ongoing pandemic and lockdowns.
Teachers have had the utmost potential to be real impact makers in the current crisis. Known to be the architects of the nation, they have played a vital role in instilling values, morals and ethics among learners, even in the online mode.
As they say, necessity is the mother of invention. And sometimes, unfortunate events like this pandemic, force upon us an opportunity to rethink how we want to connect with our students and handle the given situation in the face of a crisis. This pandemic has also given us a new mindset, upgraded our resources and got people together, increasing knowledge, skills and competencies.
Blue Bells Group of Schools stands poised in all trying times, aiming at an education that inspires confidence. We inspire students to think, design their own learning pathways, and create and do something extraordinary that is valuable to them and to the society at large. With pride we share that Blue Bells Group of Schools has established itself into at a prime location in Sector 50 called The Blue Bells School for Integrated Learning and Beansprouts Pre-School. The institution comes with the rich legacy and experience of over 40 years of the Group as its backbone and promises to deliver academic excellence blended with the best pedagogical practices of modern times.
With this, I wish all my students and parents all the very best for the new session. As it is rightly said, “It is only in our darkest hours that we may discover the true strength of the brilliant light within ourselves that can never, ever, be dimmed.” So, let us forge into the new session with more conviction and enthusiasm than ever before.
Stay Safe. Stay Blessed.
