Art teacher wins 2018 Global Teacher Prize (The Nobel Prize of Teaching) ‘The arts teach students how to think creatively, which will be important for the jobs they are likely to do when they leave school. They also teach resilience and that perseverance can pay off. For my students, the arts provide a sanctuary, a place where they can safely express themselves and connect with their identity.
‘We know that students who spend more time on the arts become more successful at the rest of their studies too – my students are evidence of this.’ Andria Zafirakou (Alperton Community School, London).

It’s been a whole week of enthusiastic summer camp activities in our Beyond school program at Arekere and Champakdhama schools @VIDYA Bangalore . It’s fascinating to see the kids totally getting engrossed amidst the summer camp activities conducted in their classes by our VIDYA teachers. Knowledge and learning goes hand in hand with fun.
A beautiful big book reading session was conducted by Devika Mathur. We never get bored of stories . Do we? An extremely wonderful and mind-blowing story telling session along with the baking was done by Mrs Mithan a very good friend and volunteer of VIDYA. The students were so inspired by her story and could see the live picture of the story.
On the other hand Brain teasers and Math Puzzles has kept the kids at utmost excitement and brainy. We all love the crosswords and Scramble during our childhood days. Our kids are good at solving that too.
An extremely wonderful session of science experiments were arranged and demonstrated at the Champakdhama school. Students were very excited and over enthusiastically participated. Mr Sukanth a good friend of VIDYA explained the concepts in a very simple way which the students could grasp well. All the models that he had brought for demonstration were neatly done. The students were so excited and enthusiastic, that they could be never seen before like this.
