In the month of February, after a long break there was a lot of hustle and bustle in schools. The schools are geting back to normal. The students of grade 5 onwards are back to their normal studies. The students of our partner school are very excited and happy to meet with their friends and teachers after a long gap. They showed much interest in their studies. In this month, we are reflecting on our work how it impacts students. We discussed with the students of grade 9 and 10 about the knowledge they had retained from the previous workshops to assess their knowledge and capabilities. We found that students missed Futuresense Foundation workshops as they like how practical they are and enjoy the creative and memorable teaching style.
