Visit To Sai Shiksha Sansthan

Written By: Satvinder Kaur

Visiting Sai Siksha Sansthan reminded me of my fathers teachings – Happiness is not a commodity which you can buy, borrow or steal. It is a feeling, which comes from within and contentment is the seed of it.

Sai Siksha Sansthan Visits

Students of Sai Siksha Sansthan are the reflection of this thought. I felt like meeting a small troop of not only well disciplined but self disciplined, well dressed, well behaved and happy students. They were fully contented with the minimum resources they had and getting a pencil or an eraser as a gift brings a broad and bright smile on their serene faces.

The sole objective of the Sansthan is to nurture and mould young minds into civilized citizens. Many students were from nearby villages whose parents were mostly illiterate, but they entrusted the school with the responsibility of educating their wards and are not inclined to interfere or dictate terms. The school has not only achieved its goal by taking the onus on its shoulders but also strengthened and maintained the bond of trust between school and parents for the last 25 years.

Sai Siksha Sansthan is a perfect example of bilateral, fruitful and harmonious relationship between society and school.

Sai Kripa Sansthan’ I was part of a trip organized by the school to ‘Sai Kripa Sansthan’ which has been a life changing experience as it was filled with emotions and sentiments.Grades 2-6 along with three other teachers visited it. The school is situated on the outskirts. It was a brick building with an open area at the centre. The school is run by Mrs. Kiran . We were taken by surprise when we entered the school as there was complete silence and it seemed that there were not many children in the school. But to our utter dismay all the classes were having full attendance and the children were attentive and disciplined.

We took a round of the school; saw their science lab, computer lab and the library. What was an eye opening experience was that they were utilizing the limited resources they had very wisely and sincerely. It was a learning experience for all the children and also for us. I had the opportunity to interact with grade 5 students. It was a pleasure beyond measure to see the confidence of the children.

In the end we gave them the items collected during the ‘Joy of the Sharing’ week in our school and could see the happiness and gratitude in their actions. After the visit now I can really say that hard work + dreams + dedication = success. We all have so much to learn in so lessa time and I believe that the journey of learning in never ending.

5 Most Important Things To Teach A Child

Kids at a tender age are the very quick learner, they learn something very fast which we can’t imagine. They are so natural pure and free that they don’t have the capacity to judge and know what is good and what is bad so being a parent and teacher it is our responsibility to let them understand the difference between good habits and bad habits.

Therefore, in order to know what are the most important things that you require to instruct your child?

Giving Respect is the root of all good things

Giving Respect to everyone is believed to be the most basic teaching that being a human we learn. Respect is also considered as one of the best traits that are required everywhere. Respect helps in winning the trust and blessing of our elders, so try to teach it from the very beginning and also try to repeat it daily so that other kids may also follow.

Be honest, even if it is painful

Doing mistakes is very much common phenomena in kids, so many times in order to hide themselves from fear of scolding or a punishment kids often tells lies. Therefore being a teacher and friend try to make them comfortable with you so that they become honest and do not tell lies even if it hurts.

Teach to share

It is very natural for kids that they don’t want to exchange or share the gifts and eatables given to them. They are so attached to the colourful rappers and often cry if someone forcefully snatches from them or ask for it to distribute, but that is just a period to learn or grow. Thus being elder we must teach them this important thing from the very beginning that sharing brings people closer to you and your heart. Teach them the significance of sharing with their friends and siblings or kids who are less fortunate. But do tell that they do not share with strangers because it may create problems.

Tell them not to give up if they fail

Many time the child moral falls if they fail in an exam or not get what they are looking for to be a winner but being a guide for their future growth we all needs to uplift their mindset and try to boost the feeling so that they can try again and be the winner again.  We must make them understand that winning and losing is part of the game and life, but what is more, essential that they try again and participate be the winner next time.

Taking care of themselves

Try to teach your kids to take care of themselves as Mom and Dad won’t always be there to save them.  Being a good parent and teacher it’s a responsibility to instill good habits in your kids so that they came home safely and you become free when they are out of the home.
