Change is the only constant at Don Bosco Institutions
-Ms. Ashwini Gupte.
Teachers from seven Don Bosco Schhols, viz. Don Bosco Matunga, St. Joseph Wadala, Don Bosco Borivli, Dominic Savio Andheri, Don Bosco Naigaum, Don Bosco Nerul and Don Bosco Yerawada congregated at Dominic Savio, Andheri to attend a workshop conducted by teachers of the Riverside School, Ahmedabad entitled ‘Design For Change.’
The programme focused on the need for student collaboration in order to bring about necessary changes in the functioning of the school. As part of the ‘I can’ strategy, teachers bring back to their respective schools the four-pronged plan to effect changes to be suggested by the students themselves. The steps involved in this include Feeling, Imagining, Doing and Sharing about the intended design plan.
Rev. Fr. Godfrey D’Sa guided the teachers through a workshop on Synergy in order to optimize the potential of the group. Fr. Godfrey reiterated that collaboration is better than competition as inter-dependence helps create the required Synergy.
The teachers now bring to their respective schools the guidelines given in order to implement the ‘Design For Change’ programme with the collaboration and suggestions of the student body.
