POP of Einstein


POP of Einstein
POP, a Parent Orientation Program was conducted at Leonia, a beautiful and amazing holiday resort on 20th and 21st of April. POP was organized to orient all the new parents and students to the philosophy and life at Oakridge.

Principal, Ms. Adilakshmi’s welcome speech took them through all the achievements and activities of the school in a nutshell. Parents were given a feel of the activities of the school and its learning programmes. On the other hand, all the children had a gala time as well as built a rapport with the most active teachers led by Ms. Neeraja, who engaged them with sessions that were designed to be educative and thought provoking.
The session on Positive Parenting conducted by Ms. Sumitha Bhattacharya, Ms.Mythili and Ms.Pushpa, gave them an insight of how and what their contribution should be in building up the child’s self-esteem.
Ms.Vidya‘s session on Multiple Intelligence supported by the event coordinators, Ms.Satya Vani and Ms. Sunitha was a highlight. Parents could bring out all the treasure from within and relate themselves to the Smarts they belonged to. The session culminated with group presentations using different smarts on the theme, Saving the Planet.

Ms.Sunitha’s session on DEAR, (drop everything and read) gave a new dimension to the audience’s perception of reading programs at Oakridge. Meet the doctor session by Dr. Nazia gave awareness on the importance given to nutrition, first aid and healthy life style at Oakridge. Ms. Richa introduced the child Development plan (CDP) a tool to monitor and enhance learning.
The one and a half day POP closed with parent’s presentations using their smarts, talent show by children’s and awarding prizes for the POP champs and smart teams. Parents highly appreciated all the experiential learning processes and above all the proactive teaching faculty of Oakridge.
