Audio Visual

“ I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”- Maya Angelou

Audiovisual education is educational instruction which uses sight and hearing to stimulate and enhance a learning experience.
Research has showed that learning is based on perception. Perception is when the senses gain information from the environment. In addition, learning is most effective when two or more senses are being used simultaneously to receive information. For example, using vision and hearing to learn something is believed to be more effective than just seeing something. These findings show that the use of audiovisuals are an effective method for students to achieve greater knowledge.

Here at Takshashila Public School, we value productive and effective teaching and training sessions. We make teaching sessions productive because we focus on what really matters- how to turn a group of student into a team focused on their learning objective. We do this by creating a virtual learning environment that mimics the classroom setting.

Fitness Club

“The purpose of training is to tighten up the slack, toughen the body, and polish the spirit”.

A person with good health and fitness becomes able to live his/her life to its fullest extent. It is very important for a person in life to be physically and mentally fit to live a healthy and happy life. Healthy and fit people become less prone to the medical conditions. Fitness at Takshashila Public School does not mean to be physically fit only, it also means with healthy mental state of the person. One can get healthy mental state if he/she becomes physically fit. The simple way to remain healthy and fit is having stress free mind with regular exercise and balanced diet. People who are physically active can easily maintain a relaxed state of mind. Healthy and fit people can easily face all the ups and downs of their life and less affected by any drastic change

Activity Hall

The air conditioned Auditorium is equipped with latest technology for all types of audio-visual presentations. The Rectangular-shaped seating arrangement in the Activity hall, equipped with individual microphones, is an ideal setup for student committee meetings and conferences.

The lighting facilities in the hall are flexible. There are facilities for increasing or decreasing the intensity of light and changing its color. Adequate facilities of flood light and spot light are also available.

Excursion / Trips

At, Takshashila, we believe that trips and excursions are a perfect way to expand one’s horizons. This is why we organise regular excursions for students to promote learning through outdoor interactions, and experiences. In addition such trips also instil a sense of appreciation for the wonders of the earth and exposes one to a wide variety of cultural and geographical ecosystems.

Another important objective of planning trips is to provide an opportunity to teachers as well as students to bond with each other, giving both the parties a break from their hectic schedules.

We encourage students to gain knowledge and explore new things not just within the boundaries, but also beyond them. Our objective in organising educational tours as a part of the curriculum is to offer students practical knowledge and hands-on experience in addition to the theoretical knowhow. Such trips teach them the most valuable lessons of life in relatively less time.

Parenting

Parenting counseling is a type of service that Takshashila Public School Provides with the aim to provide the necessary knowledge, tools, guidance, and most especially support to parents without bias or judgment. This way, they become more fully equipped to take care of their children.

Child counseling primarily involves ‘play therapy’ in addition to the commonly used talk therapy. Children, owing to their still developing language and communication skills often cannot express themselves verbally. They can relate to symbols better, such as are found in stories, picture books, puppets and drawings. This also makes therapy enjoyable for children.

Through child counseling, we focus on the following:

• The objective here is to help children fully express their needs, worries and anxieties.
• Puppets, games, colors, make-believe play and story-telling sessions help us build rapport and understand the child’s world and his/her mind.
• This helps us understand important aspects about the child such as his self-esteem, how loved he feels and how he relates to the people around him.
• On the basis of the above, we identify the roots of the problem behaviours. In most cases, the roots lie in unfulfilled emotional needs.
• We also work on the child’s social skills in order to help him deal better with his environment

Motivational Seminars

Mastering Student Motivation is a high impact experience designed to motivate students to take responsibility for their own futures.

At Takshashila Public School It helps students to identify their own ambitions and the reasons that they want to succeed for themselves – not just because adults tell them they have to!

Students question their limiting belief systems & adopt a healthier, positive state of mind.
Students challenge habitual thinking patterns and replace them with more positive behaviours.

It has three main aims: • To encourage students to take personal responsibility for their futures.
• To remove self-limiting beliefs and glass ceilings.
• To encourage students to develop self-motivation.

Students learn to challenge habitual behaviours and thought patterns replacing them with more positive ones.
They become conscious of, and manage, their own state of mind and make the fundamental attitude and motivational shift needed for lasting changes that lead to achievement and success.

Teacher’s Training

“Those who educate children well are more to be honored than they who produce them; for these only gave them life, those the art of living well.” -Aristotle

It is an undisputed fact that great teachers help create great students. Research shows that an inspiring and informed teacher is the most important school-related factor influencing student achievement. Hence, training and supporting teachers, whether freshly out of professional courses or veterans in the domain, is critical and should be taken on as a mandatory process in all schools.

Having recognized this crucial element of teacher development, Takshashila Public School offers a range of well-designed and innovative Teacher Training schedule in co-operation with Centre of Excellence for Teachers (COET) , that emphasizes subject-matter mastery and provides hands on experiences for teachers under the guidance of experienced facilitators.
