Happiness Index at the Global Indian International School
Teachers create and facilitate multi-sensory experiences
What makes a happy school and a happy learning environment?
A place where -
· you belong
· you’re appreciated
· your approach will be supported, and
· you’re important.
The vision of GIIS – to be a global leader in teaching and learning says it all. Developing a culture where everyone is a learner and has something to offer others is the key to happiness for all. Happy schools are where children feel challenged but competent, where they work hard but enjoy it, where achievement is the product but not the sole objective.
Our teachers create and facilitate multi-sensory experiences, which deeply engage and stimulate young minds. Lessons are experiences and teachers are excited and challenged to make them as powerful as possible. Students are actively engaged in learning. Teachers makes the academic program more exciting and interesting. Hands-on creative activities help empower a child who may be struggling with the demands of the curriculum. Varying textually based learning with student oriented discovery and self-propelled activities takes out some of the sameness of the day to day classroom life.
Our buildings are specifically designed to open up learning beyond the four walls of a classroom.
Our visitors expand and deepen the student experience whilst creating a truly cohesive wider community.
Staff and students share a common respect and admiration for one another and the atmosphere within the school has a warm and friendly feel. Students say what they really mean and listen openly to others’ perspectives; students provide constructive criticism and are receptive to feedback.
People are learning from each other not just facts, but morals, values and ethics that the school stands for –the acronym, MAHATMA.
How they do it you can see it on the image.
