“The schools must together instill on the students to become a good citizen and work for the development of the nation,” says Bharat Gajipara, Chairman, Sarvodya School, Sarvodaya Education Network; President, SFSO, Rajkot in an interview with Chandan Anand, Founding Editor, ArdorComm Media Group at the ‘ArdorComm New Normal – Education Leadership Summit & Awards 2022’ #ELSAGujarat #ELSAAhmedabad
What is the vision and mission of the SFSO (Self Finance School Management Association) Rajkot, Gujarat?
We have 9000 schools who are associated with us. We try to solve the problem of admin along with the government and ensure that together we transform the academic education. In this association all the schools share their achievements and discuss the new systems and technologies of the education. We conduct different seminars and programs to do so. Our aim is to ensure that children study well and learn life skills as per the new education policy. In the present education system students become machines, we have to build a human being and instill empathy, make sure they learn the languages well. When children will have sympathy then it’ll benefit our nation. The schools must together instill on the students to become a good citizen and work for the development of the nation. You must also organize these types of events quite often so that everyone comes together and discuss for the betterment of the education.
What is the importance of sports in the school education specially when during covid we shifted to online and digital education?
Sports plays a very crucial role because if our health is fine then our mind will be fine. It’ll help in the mental growth and bring in a lot of energy in a child. So, sports should be given due importance in schools. The more there will be experiment in terms of technology and along with different activities the more it’ll benefit the child.
