Seth Anandram Jaipuria School has always been exploring new techniques and methods for meaningful learning. Being a protagonist in the field of education our school has joined ‘Active Learning’ campaign. It is a process that has student learning at its centre.
- Help students build connections with what they’re learning.
- Bring a change of pace to class sessions so that all students are engaged.
- Encourage students to participate rather than allowing them to just sit back and be passive participants.
- Allow students to know one another.
- Open the class to different perspectives.
- Make it easier to understand and remember the concept.
At Seth Anandram Jaipuria School we believe that “Learning is not a spectator sport. Students do not learn much just by sitting in class listening to teachers, memorizing pre packaged assignments, and spitting out answers. They must talk about what they are learning, write about it, relate it to experiences and apply it to their daily lives. They must make what they learn part of themselves.” We at Seth Anandram Jaipuria encourage our students to ‘think hard’ by engaging them in small and large activities centered around writing, talking, problem solving or reflecting.
At SAJS as a teacher, one of our biggest challenge is to plan lessons that inspire our students to stay actively involved in the learning process. We want our students to be active participants in their learning during class time with us. We love to create an atmosphere and provide an opportunity for all students in our class to think and engage with the curriculum and practice skills for learning, applying, synthesizing or summarizing the concept.
Here active learning strategies come into play. We use them to empower, engage, and stimulate ourclassroom by putting ourstudents at the center of the learning process.
At SAJS we are using innumerable Active Learning strategies to our help students talk more openly, think more creatively and — ultimately — become more engaged in the process of learning. The following are some glimpses of Active Learning at SAJS—–
- Reciprocal questioning encourages an open dialogue in which students take on the role of the teacher and create their own questions about a topic, reading section, or lesson.
- Pause and Reflect intersperse strategic pauses into class lectures and enhance student understanding of teaching materials.
- Think Pair Share is a collaborative learning strategy in which students work together to solve a problem or answer a question about an assigned reading.
These Active Learning Strategies give Midas touch to teaching style and transform classroom into an exciting, dynamic learning environment. At times, when we let our students design a task, a final project, they surpassed our expectations. They have surprised and delighted us in every imaginable setting. We as a teacher feel proud that young Jaipurians will develop as problem solvers, critical thinkers and socially conscious individuals with leadership quality who will bring a positive change in the society and the nation as a whole.
Who would not like to be at Seth Anandram Jaipuria to learn, create and explore new techniques of learning!

“International Yoga Day was celebrated at Seth Anandram Jaipuria School on Friday, 21 June’19 in association with Physical Education Foundation of India”
“Yoga means addition – addition of energy, strength and beauty to body, mind and soul.”
International Yoga Day was celebrated at Seth Anandram Jaipuria School with great enthusiasm on 21 June’19 in association with Physical Education Foundation of India (PEFI) . A large gathering of students, teachers and parents attended the event and performed various yoga postures. These asanas were taught to bring about holistic approach to health and well being.

Young children are basically curious by nature. This curiosity leads to attainment of knowledge. Whenever a child is given a new toy, He/She show keen interest and want to explore it. However I do not readily agree with John Lockes’s belief that children’s minds are like ‘empty states’. I believe that children are born with certain characteristics and at times they may be inherited. This is the reason that at times there is a remarkable similarity in the nature of parent and their child. But then each child is different and has his/her own individual personality. This can be the reason why two children born to the same parent may possess completely different personalities. I believe that children are active learners. Fried rich Froebel and John Dewey emphasized the role of play in a child’s learning. As parents and teachers we will all agree with the fact that children are naturally drawn towards playful activities which provide them both pleasure and learning. In the early years of childhood we cannot expect the children to be given abstract knowledge. They need active learning with concrete objects. They learn best by doing. Therefore it is best to provide a stimulating environment where every child gets an opportunity to explore and experience. I also believe that nature is the best teacher and therefore children should be provided learning experiences in close relationship with nature. This will allow a child to use senses to explore and experiment.
As we all know there is maximum development of brain during the early years. A teacher has to be a guide and facilitator providing child with a sense of belonging ness and safety. At Seth Anandram Jaipuria School the teachers work in close cooperation with parents to ensure maximum learning in a positive manner. These are the formative years of life and habits formed may persist throughout the life. Teachers closely observe whether a child has achieved developmental milestones or there is a need for early intervention. If required the child and parents are given counseling sessions by the school counselor or special educator. Teachers and parents should always motivate children and provide positive reinforcement. Children should be engaged in hands-on activities to teach them a variety of concepts. The early childhood curriculum at our school is child-centric meeting needs of every individual child. A stimulating environment is provided where children use their senses to achieve real-life experiences. Children having a healthy body and a healthy mind can contribute towards building a better society.

“Success repeated is not a coincidence”, and the students of Seth Anadram Jaipuria School have proven it once again by creating history. Again the school has produced three toppers in CBSE results by giving two All India toppers Aaishna Jain and Pragya Kharkwal at third rank in XII standard by securing 497/500 and Ankur Mishra at rank one in CBSE class X by securing 499/500.

Pragya has always been a sincere and hardworking student doing incredibly well in academics. She got 10 CGPA in class X and was awarded by the school for her academic excellence. She has a creative imagination and flair for art which she has used in various class activities like board decoration, farewell functions etc. She has been an active participant in many of the inter house activities and has won many competitions. She is passionate about the issues hampering the environment and wishes to render her contribution in some way. The school takes pride to have a student like Pragya.
Aishna on the other hand is the personification of calmness. A girl with child like simplicity and ever flowing smile on her face, she has carved a niche for herself. Sympathetic and extremely concerned, her nature tends to be very sensitive towards others. She believes in enjoying every day of her life to the fullest by finding joy in every little thing. At the same time she is relentless towards pursuing her goal in life and is extremely hard working. She has always been respectful towards her teachers and helpful to all her peers. She aspires to be a psychologist and we wish her all the best in her future endeavors.
Ankur Mishra, who missed 500 by only 1 mark is a Dhoni fan and loves cricket. Even during the exams, amidst the stress and studies, he managed to find time to rejuvenate himself by playing cricket with his friends. Being a smart worker along with a hard worker, he used to plan his studies target wise and not time wise, finishing his studies before time. He has opted for PCM trio in XI standard and might pursue engineering by cracking IIT.
Our students have done us proud by performing exemplarily well in CBSE Board Examination but SAJS stands tall today because these marks are not only the manifestation of academic proficiency but also the values instilled in our children – values of discipline, regularity, sincerity and honesty towards our work. We revel in our glory today not because it is the victory of SAJS but because it is the triumph of true spirit of education!
