Education is not the learning of facts, but the training of the mind to think. This is the famous quote on education by Albert Einstein. Keeping this in mind, CJM INTERNATIONAL has chosen X – Seed books for the education of our students. Mr.Shridhar Rao – a resource person from X – Seed gave the parents a detailed explanation about the usage of the books. The books were designed in such a manner that would help the children not only to learn new facts but would also sharpen their thinking and reasoning skills.
Later, Major Pratima Thomas Pinto introduced ‘GOSHTI’ to the parents. The team involved in Goshti would train the students in drama thereby enabling the students to develop their confidence, imaginative skills and effective communication skills.
The meeting ended with a vote of thanks by Mrs Sandra D’souza followed by the National Anthem.
