“We focus on parent participation, and they are involved in our security committees and academics. They also help us evaluate and revamp the school. We have a club where students run a parliament-like body in the school. Students also participate in curriculum-building.”— NEHA CHHEDA, principal
HISTORY: Shishuvan School was set up as a response to the locality’s need for an English-medium school with modern facilities. It was started in June 2001.
UNIQUE FEATURES: The school focuses on hands-on learning and games. Concepts such as ‘methods of farming’ are taught to Class 4 students by taking them to Dahanu for paddy farming. Students can join different clubs such as film making, robotics, video-game making and so on. The school self-review and evaluation (SSRE) is undertaken to evaluate the school in the light of its own vision.
