When we take forward a new idea it is important to provide Support and Professional Development Programmes to the teachers as they are the critical agents to promote and nurture the values of Global Citizenship in the minds of our young children.
National Workshop for Educators on Global Education
“A good teacher can inspire hope, ignite the imagination, and instill a love of learning.”
“A teacher affects eternity; he can never tell where his influence stops.”
A child's learning Process begins from the moment he/she is born, from the environment they live in, the experiences they have and the examples of behaviour that we provide contribute to their understanding of themselves and the World around them.
Therefore let them grow with the values of GCE so that some day they become productive Global Citizens of the World benefiting the humanity.
