About My School My Pride
A student stands out as an achiever when he or she wins distinction in academics or in any area of extracurricular activities like music, art, painting, sketching, graphic designing, debates, audio-visual flicks, in team performances in sports or performing arts like dance and theatre. It could also be a team leadership in clubs or social services . Students’ evolvement into achievers includes their volunteering, aptitude identification, motivation, goal-setting, leadership, critical thinking, problem solving and persistence. There’ll be no restriction as to the grade of students. Any young achiever can be highlighted in the session.
Role of Schools
Modern schools believe in the role of extracurricular activities like curricular, co-curricular ones in the student’s holistic development. They diligently encourage students to become achievers by providing the opportunity and the support. They involve mentors to groom the students.
Behind every successful student performer there is a school mentors – a teacher or the principal – who can identify their potential and hone their skills In “My School, My Pride”, Amrita brings to lime light the student achievers in interaction with his/ her mentor. The larger objective of this initiative is to foster the soft skills – interpersonal and social, life skills and communication skills and to enable the young to emerge as achievers in the larger space called life.
The Mentors Role
A mentor may share with a mentee (or protege) information about his or her own career path, as well as provide guidance, motivation, emotional support, and role modeling. A mentorship is a relationship between two people where the individual with more experience, knowledge, and connections is able to pass along what they have learned to a more junior individual within a certain field. The more senior individual is the mentor, and the more junior individual is the mentee. A mentor may help with exploring careers, setting goals, developing contacts, and identifying resources.
In My School, My Pride, along with the student, the mentor – a teacher or the principal – will accompany the student who would lead the show in an interactive session of question & answers.
