Message From Trustee
“Education is our passport to the future, for tomorrow belongs to the people who prepare for it today”
Respected members of the Gajera family,
I consider myself fortunate enough to have been entrusted with the responsibility of being an integral part of an educational institution where I help nurture the future generation of our country. For us, at Gajera Group of Schools, your children are the very life and core of our school. As children, their pulsating vibrancy, vivacity, and vigor invigorate and enliven our young institution while infusing new energy and enthusiasm. In this regard, the responsibility that is entrusted upon me and my staff is absolute, fulfilling, and purposeful.
At Gajera Group of Schools, I aim to provide an exemplary educational experience that assimilates a global perspective developed through the challenging program of CBSE, Central Board of Secondary Education. Not only do our students demonstrate excellent academic progress and achievement, but they are also made aware of the many important qualities of integrity, leadership, adaptability, resilience, and true compassion for others and grow as well-grounded and accepting individuals. Additionally, our students are also encouraged to be active caretakers of the environment.
We hope you will find common ground with the Gajera Group of School's philosophy and join us in helping foster global citizens who are intellectually, morally, emotionally, and socially well-groomed as they forge ahead in the quest for a better tomorrow.
Message From Principal
We had another amazing and busy month here at Gajera Global School! The mid-term assessment is being done as I am writing to you. Revision and grading of papers are going hand-in-hand.
This month, has been a month of celebrations too as learners celebrated ganesh chaturthi, one of the most celebrated festivals in this part of the country.
A notable fact is that the idols used in the ganesh chaturthi were made out of eco-friendly materials produced in-house by learners and mentors. Not a single synthetic material was used.
Another highlight of the month was Teacher’s Day. This year, after a gap of two years, we were able to celebrate it in the Assembly. For the past two years, lock down SOPs compelled us to pay our respect to teachers online. Learners played their teachers’ roles and managed the school’s day-to-day activities by teaching younger grades and by lending a hand in handling visitor queries, on the phone as well as in person.
We are now gearing up for another huge annual event: Maker's Day. Maker's Day is celebrated in the memory of our beloved Trustee Mrs. Sunita C Gajera. All the schools managed by the Gajera Trust will participate in it in four different categories: innovation, creativity, social, and synergy. Our school will have the competitions in our premises on 7 October 2021. The winner in each category will be given away the prize in the Sanjeev Kumar Auditorium by MR CR Patil, MP on 10 October 2021.
Orientations for the competitions are taking place, and registration for the finale is in full force. This year's theme is Mother Nature, and all of the entries and competitions will be themed around this concept.
And before taking leave, please take a look at the Goodreads section. We’ve selected some books with awesome practical advice that have the potential to change your life, of course, if you follow the instructions. Atomic Habits and Make Your Own bed are a couple of must-haves in your bookshelf. The Comfort Book will help you accept yourself as you are. For children, we suggest they read The Boy, the Mole, the Fox and the Horse by Charlie Mackesy.
10th to 19th September, 2021

Workshop on “Know Plastic”
Purpose- You may be surprised to learn that there are seven different types of plastic. Some are excellent, while others are not. If you knew how to sort them, we could do our part to help the environment. Try this to learn how to distinguish between good and bad plastic.
Find a plastic container, the more common the better (for example, your most used Tupperware or favorite beverage). A number inside a recycling symbol can be found somewhere on that package, usually on the bottom, side, or top, and it ranges from 1 to 7. The figures represent the seven different types of plastic in the market.
Mr. Harshal Mistry showed parents and educators how to sort them and send them to be recycled, so that everyone can contribute to the fight against the plastic epidemic. We could help prevent them from ending up in a landfill if we knew how to sort them.
15th September, 2021
Workshop on "VAK Model of Communication"
Purpose- The world would be a lot easier for us if we could read minds. We'll be able to say exactly what we want to say, when we want to say it, and how we want to express it.
Everyone would be delighted. Ms. Monika Suri of Auro University presented a presentation on the VAK model of learning, which taught educators how to read minds to a large extent, though not totally. We may figure out what kind of individual we're dealing with by watching similar behavioral patterns and body language, and then adjust our approach accordingly. This can be quite beneficial to educators.
At GGS, workshops like these are a frequent part of the day. This event was co-sponsored by Auro University. The school has partnered with the university to provide its students with more exposure to the university's practical learning.

Be happy, and be strong
Be happy, and be strong,
For He looks after you.
And don’t worry one bit because nothing will go wrong.
And everyone is part of him, so he’ll leave behind no one.
He is the source of infinite love and you must have faith in him.
And if you look deeply enough you will find him, up above.
He is the light that blinds the sun,
And lights up everyone’s life.
Be happy, and be strong,
For He looks out for you.
And don’t worry one bit, because nothing will go wrong.

Soldiers in White
Know you're working hard'
I know you have been working so hard,
I know you must be tired enough, as we are.
Seeing you work so hard,
Makes me wanna face my ill starred
When you say" I am desperate to save every man"
I feel the sudden burst of hope that, "you are the only one who can."
All these days I know that you are working hard too,
Its tiring since there's nothing but melancholy blue.
You wanna live up to your words for us,
That’s why you work till the chirping of the night crickets go hush.
You wanna be the person of whom we will be proud,
But you are already the one, there's no doubt.
Your hands ought to save everyone,
But what about playing with your own little one.
Trying to save someone makes you restless
But when you fail, you can’t really express,
At those times we decline to respect you for who you are,
We are sorry, I swear we really are.
Now that you're working hard,
And giving all your heart.
I hope you'll never have to wonder,
About what you could have done.
If you summoned all your thunder,
And if your best was not good.
As you hoped it would,
You could still say "I gave all I had in me" ,
Now please take a little rest,
Because you have given your best.
Lets again work hard together
In all our endeavors, forever.
- By Raksha Bhargav

4. Learn something about your students' interests, hobbies, and aspirations.
5. Create and use personally relevant class examples.

7. Explain your course policies and why they are what they are.
8. Interact more, lecture less and emphasize active learning.
9. Reward student comments and questions with verbal praise;

Marks are neither the measure of Education nor the Success
Every year, the CBSE 12th Class Result come as an Eye opener to all of us and the bitter reality dawn on us about the stress and the pressure which has become an indispensable part of our children’s lives. Thousands of students across India securing above 95℅, is compelling enough to make us sit together to introspect the situation. The admission to many prestigious Colleges and Universities is becoming much tougher every year with a large number of students securing 95% and above.
Then what about the students who have not been able to fare well?
Where is it going to take our children to?
Shouldn’t we consider some other options, other than the traditional ones, Engineering, Medical or MBA?
Marks or the knowledge without creativity is meaningless.
If knowledge is the tool in one’s hands, creativity is the expertise or the skill to use it effectively. So, one must try to acquire one or the other skill which fascinates him the most and should try his level best to attain proficiency of higher order in it.
When one’s hobby or anything of his interest becomes his profession, nobody or nothing can stop him from reaching the top rung of the ladder of success.
We can find hundreds of such examples of such people around us who are excelling in their respective fields as they chose their hobby or the area of their utmost interest and had even developed and groomed it to the fullest without bothering about their marks or their rank in the school, state or the Board. The most glaring example is that of the Great Physicist and Nobel Laureate, Elbert Einstein, who was compelled to leave the school as he resisted the traditional methods of teaching with undue emphasis on memorization and rote learning only. There was no room at all for creativity or imagination.
And the rest is history. The theory of Relativity, as invented by him, is the basis of all the nuclear operations.
To sum it up, the students must sharpen their creativity or imagination, hone their skills in the areas of their interest and the rest will come to them naturally, effortlessly, whether good marks, high rank or admission in any course in any prestigious College or University!!!!

CLASS ROOM MANAGEMENT
Classroom management is a process that allows teachers to control the learning and direction of their classroom. Teachers use classroom management to keep students focused on learning while preventing disruption from slowing the learning process. A wide range of classroom management techniques are used by teachers, ranging from hands-off classroom management focused on cooperation to direction of the class to ensure students aren’t disruptive to their peers. Since classroom management keeps classes on track and prevent disruptions from slowing down the learning process, it’s one of the most fundamental aspects of high quality education.
Effective Classroom Management is:
1. Show students that it pays to behave.
At the end of tough classes, I’d daily give out two raffle tickets – one for academic effort and one for good behavior. After writing their names on the tickets, kids dropped them in a jar. On Friday, I randomly drew two student names – both received candy bars.
2. Never punish an entire class.
Even when you feel like the the entire class is misbehaving, there are always some kids following directions. Punishing the class as a group only incites further resistance.
3. Build content-related anticipation.
At the beginning of class, say, “Later today, I’ll tell you…”
How to cure cholera (Clean water makes all the difference.)
What most super-geniuses have in common (They burn through acolytes.)
How the X-Wing fighters in Star Wars violate Newtonian physics (Blasters and afterburners don’t make sounds in space.)
The goal is to get students interested in the teacher’s agenda in lieu of misbehaving.
4. Change the tone.
To interrupt a class of aggressive complainers, I cued up Katrina and the Waves on my CD player. When the first grumbling complaint occurred, I raised my palm and played “I’m walking on sunshine, wooah / And don’t it feel good!” Everybody laughed. Another kid started to whine until I pressed play again. Bigger laughs. After that, complaints rarely occurred.
5. Find things to appreciate.
Instead of starting class braced for conflict, make yourself look for things to delight in: that Serena knows everything about Detroit hip-hop or that your thermos of Intelligentsia Coffee is three quarters full.
6. Ramp up your enthusiasm.
There’s no downside to being 20 percent more enthusiastic.
7. Use your words.
Students sometimes miss the obvious. Say, “This class makes me glad that I teach.”
8. Don’t pander.
Never cueing students to meet your emotional needs is an important adult boundary. And one of life’s paradoxes is that people who never obsess over being adored are often the recipients of adoration.
When students get kicked out of Katie Riley’s ninth-grade English classroom, she always tells them that everything is forgiven and that the next day will be a fresh start. When a student commits a felony, he sees Ms. Riley sitting in the courtroom gallery. That’s all he needs to know.
10. Give students choices.
“Do you want to do this assignment in class or as a take-home quiz?” “Should this project be group or independent work?” Choice increases students’ buy-in.
11. Publicly announce classroom management goals.
Say, “Yesterday, the noise was at an ‘eight’ during work time. Let’s shoot for a 'five’ today.”
12. Establish routines.
If you have a chaotic class, keep things predictable. Also post the day’s schedule.
13. State the truth when things go wrong.
If students are confused and lost, don’t brush over it. And when you’ve sent a student out of the classroom, say, “That makes me sad and frustrated, but let’s get our brains focused back on the third math problem.”
As you find your way forward with hard-to-manage classes, please let us know what has worked for you, and what hasn’t.
So, the best class room is…
• Planned not improvisational
• Preventative rather than simply reactive
• Controlled and organized rather than chaotic
An opportunity for all students and teachers to experience success.
Wish you all the Best!!!

Teaching- the most noble profession
Teaching is considered to be the one of the most noble profession on which the foundation of all the other professions are laid.
Teachers have been placed next to God in our scriptures. Kabir has rightly said,
“Guru Govind dono khade, kake lagu paye,
Balihari Guru aapne, Govind diyo milaye. "
When faced with one's teacher and one's Lord, whose blessings would I seek first. The teacher truly is great, for he showed me that God is greater.
I too earned my first salary as a teacher and that too from the school where I had spent twelve years of my life as a student. It is one of the happiest moments till date. The endearing memories I have of my schooling days is not of chapters or subjects, but of the teachers who have taught us. If we love or hate a particular subject, most of the times it is because of our teacher. Teachers have that magic wand who can change the entire perspective of a student life. The genuine teachers are not judgmental and never leave the hands of their students. A teacher is an aspiration and an inspiration to many.
I have been really blessed to have studied from some of the best teachers in my student life. When I was a CA student, I took classes from one of the top most teachers of Kolkata for Financial Management. There used to be long queues for students seeking admission there and he had to refuse most of the times as he couldn't accommodate everyone. It was also one of the toughest subject to clear in Chartered Accountancy. Meanwhile, my maternal grandmother expired and I missed few of my classes and the entire schedule was disturbed. The course got completed and I didn't understand the subject. I went to my teacher and told him about it. He was very understanding and patient and he took the extra classes of a single student and that too without charging any fees. In fact, today I am a Chartered Accountant because of him.
A teacher can touch the chords of heart of children and by giving them the right direction, convert them into a powerhouse of knowledge.
My son Vedant used to study from one teacher whom he used to love and respect the most. The students used to wish her by hugging her, they used to wait for her class as she would teach the subject mostly in the form of a game and if she got angry for some mischief, the kids would cry at home. Her words were the final words for everyone. Still, she is Vedant's favorite teacher, though he has not met her for the last four years as she was transferred to other school.
According to me, a good teacher is one who illuminates the life of his students with his knowledge, experience and imagination. If my child can teach me when he is back from school, it proves that he has been really taught well in class. If a kid can ask all sort of questions in class without any fear and the teacher answers all the questions patiently, then to me, she is a good teacher.
The real teachers are selfless, they burn like a candle to remove darkness from students mind. A good teacher is non-judgmental, impartial and is a storehouse of patience. A teacher purpose should be to help students to create their own image, to gift them belief, to remove exam fear and stress and to take a plunge in any field without any worries. Teaching is like a snakes and ladders game. If conceptually taught, students will climb the ladder and if they learn the subjects like rotes, they will be bitten by the snake....
We need more and more teachers like Dr. S.S. Radhakrishnan and Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam. We have a live example of P.V Sindhu in front of us, the way she is bringing laurels to our country and how beautifully Pulela Gopichand has coached her. Another great example is of Sachin Tendulkar who had hit so many centuries and every time he had given this credit to his coach Sri Ramakant Achrekar. There are teachers like Anand Kumar of Super30 programme who has been coaching students of IIT JEE Entrance exams for last 14 years.
A synthesizer has seven chords. Though each chord has a different note but when the chords are played in symphony, it gives out a melodious music. Similarly each student is different. But if the teacher plays the right note and guides the students properly, they too can do wonders.
Nikos Kazantzakis has rightly said,
"True Teachers use themselves as bridges over which they invite their students to cross, then having facilitated their crossing joyfully collapse, encouraging them to create bridges of their own."
Wishing a very Happy Teachers Day to all my teachers and all those who are a guiding light in someone's life in one way or other.
