Kids of today are actively involved in various project based learnings and have awareness about the real world and trying to understand the world every day. Every country’s school are taking innovative ways to build their future citizens. We appreciate the efforts of schools for introducing thoughtful activities every day.
Here are some of the activities which are noteworthy:
1.Life skills class:
Even elders cannot control their own mind. let’s observe the world, it is the quality of your thoughts that define your life. It is very important to be calm and peaceful in every situation of life. Chadwick school in Korea conducted life skill class, in which students learned conflict avoidance and respecting difference of views on the topics like gossip,race and politics. If kids learn to respect everyone the world would be better place to live in.
