‘STRENGTHENING

SAHODAYA AND USING IT


AS A VEHICLE FOR
IMPLEMENTING REFORMS’

VASANTHI THIAGARAJAN
SISHYA SCHOOL,HOSUR
SOME REFLECTIONS…
• What is our common vision for our
Sahodaya?
• What can we do to dissolve
individuality, shed inhibitions and
all that impedes our progress so
that we can usher in the ‘oneness’?
• How can we ensure a smooth-secure-
successful future for our children
(the very purpose of our
existence)?
ANALOGY OF THE VEHICLE..

 *SUPPORTING *SHARING *SUPPLEMENTING


*SUSTAINING
SUPPORTING
• Newly affiliated schools that
need to be updated on the
CBSE rules and new changes
and systems
• Formulating processes and
systems that take care of
new/paradigm shifts in
educational policies. The CCE
implementation is a classic
….SHARING
• Sharing-implies sharing resources as
well as providing a forum for
sharing common concerns.
Whenever new policies arise,
schools must get together, express
their concerns and this concerted
effort alone can create solutions or
methodologies to manage the
challenges that arise in such
situation.

…..SHARING
• Acknowledging and assessing
global challenges that can be
effectively addressed as a
cohesive unit than as a single
school with its own ethos-
implies that the feeling of being
the ‘lone victim’ or of ‘isolation’
melts away. In its place effective
collaborative thinking-planning,
execution and follow up ensures
that cohesive and multi-pronged
SHARING
• In an age where resources are scarce
as well as precious, everything we
have needs to be used not just
economically but effectively. Return
on Investments-though intangible
in most cases- becomes more
meaningful when the resources are
shared and benefits are spread
across a larger student community.

SUPPLEMENTING:

• Augmenting current
resources and devising
plans to fill in the lacuna in
new upcoming schools by
sharing what one has as an
exclusive resource to
supplementing the gap in
another school.
SUPPLEMENTING:

• To initiate supplementing –one


needs to move from a
competitive mode to a
cooperative mode-involves
shedding all our
personal/individual school
perceptions of quality and
moving on to cooperative
efforts of learning and
SUSTAINING:

• Any programme needs sustenance or


most of the enthusiasm and
euphoria one can perceive during a
novel initiative will die a natural
death. Thus, to sustain all the
above mentioned efforts, all
Sahodayas need to develop teams
who will take charge of each area
and coordinate and reflect
frequently on whether the
Sahodaya vehicle is moving
…SUSTAINING

• Ensuring through ‘sharing’ and


‘caring’ that continual
improvement is happening.
This can happen when
Sahodaya complexes meet and
evaluate or assess the current
situations that prevail-modify or
totally change systems with the
concurrence of all members
THE OBVIOUS ADVANTAGE OF
COLLABORATION
Every school is empowered to

retain its uniqueness and


freedom to operate following
broad guidelines and support
and keep the school in touch
with ‘what’s happening’ so that
‘no school will be left behind’
and ‘every school is included’
in this gamut of developmental
THE U.S.P. OF THE
B.S.S.C
• A strong, inspiring .
motto:
PROGRESSIVE PARTNERSHIP
• An emblem that reflects our strong
roots and cultural ethos
• Inclusiveness
• Openness
• Simplicity in appearance but lofty in
approach
• Sharing – good practices
• Caring - especially for newly affiliated
schools
ON THE ANVIL….
• Teacher exchange for broadening and
strengthening the core competencies
of all our teachers through exposure
in other schools
• Student exchange programmes for
broadening the vision of our students
and making them more adaptable
• Sharing resources such as library,
experienced faculty, consultants and
sports facilities etc. for cost
effectiveness
ON THE ANVIL….
• Non-competitive programmes to
promote student understanding and
build strong student relationships
across schools
• Seminars and workshops to address
specific needs as well as for cost
effectiveness
• To create a common pool of expert
teachers to be shared amongst
schools to manage the shortage of
competent teachers in the future. This
can also ensure on-going induction
