SKILL SUBJECTS - 2021-22

Dear Parents— Greetings from SOS Hermann Gmeiner School, Varanasi! Hope you are doing your best possible to protect yourselves and your families from the fury of Covid-19 pandemic! Please take care. We are sure that Corona will be defeated and we are back to normalcy soon. Through this letter, we would like to inform you about the decision of CBSE to introduce Skill subjects in Class 11 from this session-2021-22 onwards and we have chosen the following three Skill subjects out of a long list given by the CBSE (a student is supposed to opt for any one as the Sixth subject in Class 11)---- 1. Marketing 2. Web applications 3. Health care You know well that our country is churning out thousands of graduates every year but there is a staggering skill gap with around 93% Engineers and MBAs not employable. The right skill development from School can help students get jobs when they are graduated. Let me give you a brief idea about what the Skill subjects are and how they are beneficial for students. In Skill based learning, teachers focus on imparting education through planning and practice. To help the students retain the concepts of a subject, teachers plan, discuss ideas and provide constructive feedback so that the students can reflect on the skills gained in the classrooms. Students are motivated to think logically, analyze concepts and apply their insights. The whole idea is to develop the students into independent thinkers and prepare themselves for the challenges of future especially in getting a job or becoming an entrepreneur. Above all, choosing a Skill subject as the sixth subject of study in Senior Secondary classes will help the students in securing higher percentage in Board examinations and passing the examination gets easier as the Result is computed based on the Best five subjects. So, please help your wards in choosing a Skill subject well. A brief description of the benefits (career options available) of choosing a particular Skill subjects are attached with this letter.

Message:

It is my belief that school should be the experience of a lifetime. Our school experience sets the stage for success later in life and provides a lifetime of positive memories for our students.

We are proud of our continuous goal of providing an excellent education for our students. . We have a dynamic, hardworking faculty who are involved in education to benefit the students.

The entire gamut of school education is undergoing transformation in the teaching learning process. In the modern concept of schooling, teaching has become redundant, paving way for facilitation of learning through knowledge sharing. The wave of digital learning and cloud computing is reaching new heights. In all this whirlwind of new age technology, it is important to charge ahead but with one’s head firmly on one’s shoulders.

HGS strives to inculcate moral values, manners, responsibilities among students so that they may build a world free of all the evils. Students here are encouraged to dream, groomed to give wings to their dreams, to take off and explore the unexplored. The plethora of interesting & exciting opportunities available to youngsters today often leave them with an array of things to do. It is important therefore to help them build their focus on the subject that draws them most and give shape to their vision. A student is made to blossom intellectually, morally and spiritually.

As Swami Vivekananda said, “Take up one idea. Make that one idea your life – think of it, dream of it, and live on that idea. Let the brain, muscles, nerves, every part of your body, be full of that idea, and just leave every other idea alone. This is the way to success.”
