Little Flower School, its motto ‘I Will’ has grown from strength to strength...

Dear Mr Dutt,

It was great to have you visit our school and show us how we can work together to build our “ My Good School”?
First of all, we have to understand the child psychology; each child needs space because each child needs some time to understand the concept.
After attaining pre-primary education from home, the child needs to work for her/his social development, and for this, the parents send their ward to school. A school is a place where child gets good education, a loving atmosphere, interaction with peers, motivation  and gains confidence which reflects the child’s identity
Teachers are just like a mirror for the students, so it is first the duty of teachers alone, to develop these the quality in  himself or herself.
Teachers should concentrate on weak students because they need personal attention, in fact, we should give some responsibilities to them, in this way we can motivate them. Teachers should give a chance each and every child to take part in different types of activities; this will develop confidence in the child. Interaction plays an important role because this builds the power of expression and student speaks with confidence, this will thus help the student to learn to share, to help each other, and most important this will help satisfy the needs of the parents too.
The teacher must not teach as a profession, if the teacher behaves as a mother or father, this helps build a good school. Quality in education consists of happy teachers, a good student-teacher ratio, modern equipment, adequate space and classroom facilities.
Finally, a good school has to build the child into a well–managed person. How he or she can deal with the difficulties with confidence. He or she must be able to differentiate between the right or wrong things.
Our journey to becoming a good school will not be complete until each and every child gets the quality education and improves individual behaviour to be a better social being.
In my view, no journey is complete till we reach the destination, a ‘student–teacher–school’ journey is a never ending, as a teacher it is our duty to think  WHAT NEXT----?
We are very thankful to you for giving us your precious time and sharing your experiences with us.

Thanks a lot,
Vibha Mehrotra,

The Great Depression & World War Two - Investment of Bloodshed - Udita Gangwani

A timeline of events that occurred through the course of the Great Depression and World War 2 written based on the home front (Canada).

I chose to create a family of that time and follow them through the span of the twenty years. The family has varied backgrounds and connections which allow the characters to be impacted by the majority of events taking place during the 30's and 40's. The story is written in the form of excerpts from a girl's journal, which talks about the key events that occurred during the time of hardship.

The Benedikt Family is a German family living in Canada with two boys (Conrad and Christof) and one daughter (Evelyn). The mother is a Japanese Canadian (Aina) that married a German. They family is well settled in the 1920’s and are blessed with success and prosperity. Also, the father (Alekzander) has a younger brother who is a businessman in Germany, his brother Gustaf visits Canada once every two years. Both brothers grew up in Canada and hold strong ties with Canada, especially Alekzander who fought for Canada in WW1. This family experiences the Great Depression and WW2 in extreme measures.
