Building knowledge, self-awareness and relationships with people and the environment to seek happy, healthy, impactful lives
For some time now, the world has been learning that the 'industrial' models for schools that may have worked well enough in the 19th Century are hardly adequate for the demands of today’s world. The world is VUCA, a term which means 'volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous.' Change is instantaneous and exponential and asks schools to be agile and adaptive in addressing the changes.
The one book that I just can’t stop thinking about is 'Queen of Ice' written by Devika Rangachari. The plot revolves around a lame, but zealous princess in 10th century Kashmir struggling to prove that a kingdom without a king is not inevitably doomed. From the evolution of Princess Didda to Queen Didda, the one question she found asking herself was, "Did I achieve greatness?"
When we first arrived at Dhule I expected the trip to be nothing more than an educational one. I had read all about the different aspects of life in rural India – agriculture, animal husbandry, irrigation methods, etc. I was apprehensive about the difference between my textual knowledge and reality. Then again, reading Sadhana by Tagore and the Theory of Trusteeship by Mahatma Gandhi inspired me to look a little beyond the obvious and have a more insightful experience which would not have happened otherwise.
My son Vedanth joined Neev School in Koramangala as a pre-toddler and he is presently studying in Grade 1 C at Neev Academy.
Our 12 year old started his journey at NEEV pre-school. The warmth, holistic learning and development has shaped him to be an explorer, learner, empathetic kid and a responsible young adult.
There are many schools that help your children crack medicine or engineering entrance. That kind of education is about risk minimisation, not potential maximisation.
We have seen our daughter start her Neev journey as a shy toddler and blossom into a confident young adult at Neev Academy.
