Collaborative Planning with Parents

Where there is teamwork and collaboration,
Wonderful things can be achieved.

A new initiative by the Primary Years Programme and Early Years Programme was undertaken where we invited parents to participate in the unit planning process in order to build parent agency and strengthen the learning community. Parents joined us and gave us their ideas regarding what learning engagements we can take with the students. They also came up with suggestions about field trips and volunteered to search for relevant guest lecturers regarding the next topic.

World-renowned storyteller, Craig Jenkins is an amazing, dynamic and charismatic storyteller and we have experienced it ourselves in Victorious Kidss Educares school on 21st and 22nd August 2019. International Guest speakers offer students real-world life experiences, which imbibes a global perspective amongst the children, which is imperative for an International School.
Craig Jenkins has over ten years’ experience of performing and running storytelling workshops across the world. He has shared his wonderful stories in 13 countries so far because he is so fresh, so energetic, so contemporary, full of life, emotions and fun. His style of performance is one of a kind and loved by all age groups equally. The group, comprising of parents and teachers, were spellbound and awed by the smoothness, with which he glided from techniques to contents to concepts and then back again to contents of the story. He explained the ‘magic’ of storytelling and the theory behind the magic. Read More

IB MYP Topper – Anoushka Shetty

The Topper scoring 55/56 in the MYP 5 (10th Grade) Result

“I began today absolutely terrified. Last evening, I had found out that the MYP-5 results are out. After frantic messaging and emailing, as well as lots of prayers, I came to school with my legs shaking and my heart racing. I knew I did well, but I was still unsure. Maybe my formula was wrong in the math paper, or maybe I didn’t spend enough time writing my English Analysis. These uncertainties ate me up for the rest of the day until I got my results. I was no longer sure of my work. The only thing that I was 100% conscious of, was my efforts. The exams and the E-Portfolios that I submitted was a culmination of my learning from the past 5 years. I spent countless hours learning & revising, diving into the deep content that the MYP offers. I knew that the number out of 56 does not define my character, but the time, dedication and constant effort is what makes me who I am. Read More

Content-Based Education vs Conceptual Learning

By | Educating in a better way, IB Education, VKE Philosophy | No Comments

What do you want for your child?
A Content-Based Education or Conceptual Learning?

“Education is the manifestation of perfection already exists in men” that is what Swami Vivekananda is referring to all of us as the search begin, for the teachers and management of schools to discover, what are those characteristics of ‘perfection’? Swamiji expected us to search and establish, implant the mindfulness firmly in the consciousness, attentiveness in the heart of teachers to guide our future generation.
Which learning or education should be taken up for your child to prepare them for the future? Should it be a content-based education which fulfils our merit or should it be the conceptual learning like the IB curriculum offers us that imparts a real understanding?  What is Education and how one shall acquire this in the competitive world like today; where everyone is searching for the real solution as how to be the race to become better and the best. But in the chase of life and asking for a lot from it, somewhere we are completely missing out the real values of education and learning to develop our individual perception of acquiring knowledge.

Creating Learning Experiences

By | Educating in a better way, IB Education, VKE Philosophy | No Comments

“Education, education, education ~
Educate and raise the masses, thus alone a Nation is possible”
-Swami Vivekananda

Creating Learning Experiences 1Victorious Kidss Educares (VKE), an IB World School, believes that ‘discovering the ‘Infinite Power’, hidden within every child, is schooling, is parenting’. In this journey, however, the child needs help from Parents, grandparents, teachers and fellow travellers destined to assist and travel with the child; till the mission of their life is fulfilled. That limitless potentials of human children are getting lost, for lack of data inputs, information, educational standards, practices and knowledge, of what to do, staying hidden from the parents. ‘Being gifted, ‘says Dr. Neil Harvey (Dean of Institute for Developing the Human Potential, PA, USA’), is primarily a product of the environment and by that current definition, the level of intelligence can easily be reached by nearly every child.” Read More
