Dheepan Thangavelu, Vice Chairman, pointed out that “the COVID pandemic caused a set back to the system, with schools being forced to shut down during the lockdown period. In India, around 250 million students were affected due to school closures at the onset of lockdown induced by COVID-19. The pandemic posed several challenges in schools which increased the learning losses. The pandemic also called into question the readiness of the systems, including teachers to address such a crisis. But we at Sri Shakthi International School motivated and facilitated digital adoption in school education by focusing the students and teachers to face the challenges. We facilitated a mission titled “1000 Steps” in which all the students and teachers were given a task on various subjects and titles. The stakeholders learned the subjects and the concepts, then they performed on the subject and a video was captured on their performance. The same was edited with all necessary captions and it was uploaded to the School Official YouTube Channel, Lifeatsrishakthi, wherein it helped other students to learn the subject and concepts from the video”.
Dheepan Thangavelu, Vice Chairman, further stated that “Tiny drops make a mighty ocean. In this context all the stakeholders of Sri Shakthi have played a pivotal role in this beautiful journey of creating these conceptual videos stimulating others to impart a joyful and innovative process of activity-based learning. The Remarkable involvement of children and their progress in gaining knowledge was clear and evident, at each steps in this beautiful journey. The efforts taken by Sri Shakthians has led to this magnificently enormous reward of etching Sri Shakthi International School in achieving Elite World Records”.
Mary Rani.P, Principal, pointed out that “the Curriculum based activities and concepts were displayed by the students after guided research by the teachers in the form of projects and the same was uploaded in the YouTube. I feel very proud to mentor this project as the academic head of the institution”.
