Theatre Professionals goes to Ratnagiri

Sarvankash Vidya Mandir (SVM) in partnership with KA Edu Associates is Ratnagiri’s first world-class school. A K-12 co-educational CBSE school, it focuses on creative & performing arts as part of the daily curriculum, along with sports and academic excellence. They also believe in providing high-quality training to teachers who eventually will inspire the children to learn more. All of this makes us very proud to be associated with them.

Our first Using Drama for Learning project outside metropolitan cities begins at SVM with twelve teachers from Nursery to grade six. In the first stage, the teachers are beginning to run the exercises and using them for tune-ins and reflections. Some of them have already tried an exercise or two for the curriculum as well.

Tasneem Fatehi, who facilitated the program, says, “Drama based learning was all very new for the teachers. They all come from different parts of the country and it was all a new experience for them. Being the first workshop, it gave them the space to get to know each other better as well”.
