The Secretary, MCGC and Director, Mayo College, Lt. Gen. S H Kulkarni (Retd.) addressed the principals and staff of Collaboration Schools on Sunday, May 03, 2020 through a scheduled Zoom meeting. The topic for the webinar was ‘Leading schools in the age of disruption ‘.
Lt. Gen. Kulkarni in his opening message stated that as such schools are complex entities and the present time has made it complicated due to the uncertainties that have stepped into the system due to Covid-19 and the lockdown. He emphasised the need for organised crisis response, and that the vision of each school leader must entail planning for the next five to ten years ahead in terms of facilities, faculty, curriculum and pedagogy which form the four main aspects of any school. He underlined the need for capacity building of teachers to face the unforeseen. He urged the school leaders to devote substantial amount of time towards the important aspects of thinking , planning and anticipating; besides handling the routine, urgent and immediate things of day to day. Every leader must accept that one does not know everything, and that one can learn from everyone.
Furthermore, the principals of Mayoor Schools expressed their thoughts on handling the Corona crisis and the way forward after Corona.
The session, attended by more than 95 educators of Mayoor Schools, was moderated by Mr. Navin Dixit, Edu. Consultant, Collaboration Committee.
