|Teaching EWS students of Primary class after school hours|
‘When individuals in a community collaborate and strive together for the benefit of all, then not only do the individuals benefit, but the whole community also prospers.’ Sensitivity towards social issues is a value the Tagoreans naturally imbibe in the positive surroundings that pervades the school campus.
Under the NSS programme, students of class IX-A conduct classes after school, for the students from the EWS category of classes I to V. After an orientation programme conducted by the NSS teachers, the students are in complete charge of mentoring, homework assistance, and preparation for examination of the students in English, Math. Improvement in speaking skills by engaging their wards in conversation and discussion, as well as focusing on correct pronunciation is also adopted by the mentors.
Activity based teaching to keep the learners engaged, preparation of worksheets, mock tests, usage of teaching aids are initiatives taken by the mentors to enliven the learning environment of the classroom.
The programme has gone a long way in generating awareness among the students of class IX(A) of their responsibility towards the society at large, as well as inculcating values of compassion, sharing and empathy towards the lesser privileged.
