Education for Life - Program
We are ecstatic to announce that today marks the beginning of our groundbreaking initiative,' Education for Life' designed and curated by Shiv Nadar School exclusively for Grade IX and XI students for the academic year 2023-24. This innovative program is aimed at providing students with exposure and engagement to help them navigate and excel in life beyond school. It is a student-centred life skills development program that focuses on imparting critical life lessons to equip Grades IX and XI students with the knowledge, skills, and attitudes necessary to thrive in a Volatile, Uncertain, Complex, and Ambiguous (VUCA) world.
Today's session began by addressing the big question, "Why Study History?", particularly in today's context. The importance of understanding history was emphasized, setting the stage for the discussion on the partition of India. Col. Gopal shared insights on various personalities who played a role in the partition of India. The session delved into key takeaways, including Jinnah's two-nation theory, the unification of princely states into one nation with the efforts of Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel, and the upcoming discussion on the Kashmir issue in the next module Mr Adnan concluded the session by summarizing the main points and leaving the students with a deeper understanding of different aspects of India's independence and its causes.
