The School arranged for an allocution for which Mr. Vijay Patel, the principal of Atmiya Vidya Mandir, was invited as the resource person. The allocution empowered all the participants immensely by equipping them with wholesome ideas to make teaching enriching, interesting and above all, heart-reaching, adding an embellishing edge to explore bhagwad - divine - avenues of teaching. The allocution also served as a potent platform to the teachers to adopt noble ways of conduct while teaching the students. The heart-reaching approaches will go a long way in creating divine teaching – learning situations in the class rooms.
