Those who participate in the Award are expected to follow its requirements in a non-competitive manner with a determination to succeed, either individually or as part of a team.

SashwatiSatpatti an Alumni of Singapore University and a Synthetic Phonic Trainer from Bhuvneshwarconducted a two day vibrant workshop for the Pre Primary & Primary Teachers of Jodhamal Public School to ensure the 21st century education to the students who are entrusted to the school. The workshop started with the sounds and how to make the sound like a synthesizer and make it a synthetic sound. Stapatti discussed the 42 sounds from 26 letters of English and told the teachers to never ever make the phonic sounds using Hindi or any other vernacular rather the 42 synthetic sounds to make the students join the letters to make reading easy for them by the blended learning.
To an answer to the question What is Synthetic Phonics?SashwatiSatpatti explained thatPhonics is nothing but relating sounds (phonemes) to letters (graphemes) or group of letters. It is an instructional method of teaching children to read.
They learn how to blend letter sounds together to make words like 'Dog'. It's not easy as it sounds because 26 letters in the English alphabet correspond to 42 sounds.
Importance of Synthetic Phonics
Phonics not only helps the child to read but also spell with ease. It helps them decode words by using the knowledge of sounds. It is vital as it does not depend on the photographic memory of children and aids them in reading new and unfamiliar words, thus enriching & enhancing their vocabulary.
Synthetic Phonics Benefits to Childrenaccording to Saswati : Start Enjoying Reading;Builds Sub-Conscious Mind; Improves Speaking Skills; leads to Smarter and Self-Confidentchild.When should a child be introduced to Synthetic Phonics?
The best time to introduce phonics to a child in between 4 to 6 years. However children above 6 years & up to 9 years have not developed good English reading, speaking & spelling skills, phonics will definitely help.Why should you try learning to read early on?
Research has shown kids who are able to communicate well in English in early days of their growing perform well in their academics & actually enjoy success in school. They are free of any stress at the subconscious level & apart from excelling in studies, also have very high self esteem&self confidence. Voracious acquisition of new knowledge through reading helps children build a strong academic foundation.CoordinatorsRanju Malhotra, UrmilaKaul&NeetuJohri appreciated the workshop and said that such workshops add on to the capability of the staff and from Pre Nursery itself we need to incorporate it.
Trilok Singh Bist the Principal of the school appreciated the concept and was happy to see the sea change in all the 50 teachers who were a part of this fruitful workshop. Trustee NandanKuthiala& Vice Principal PoojaPanthri presented a token of appreciation to Saswati Nanda Satpatti for making these two days so enriching for the faculty members of Jodhamal.

Jodhamal students had an experience of interacting with the Havard Fame Counselor ParikshitDhanda who took a session with the students of Jodhamal on how to prepare for a life time and how to balance between the studies and the hobbies.
Parikshit had made his talk so very interactive that all students felt like hearing him for more though duer to paucity of time he could not take more than an hour with the students. He gave tips on how the career options are changing and how the students are unaware of the career options which can be explored by them in the chosen subjests. He asked the kids as to how much do they know their parents and in his talks he proved that students do not know much about their parents too. Then in that case without proper research how would they know the career options related to their stream. He said that most of the parents think and associate PCB with Medical career whereas there are atleast 55 more careers attached to it and at time even more rewarding, the need is to explore and research the options and be with the changing times. Medical Transcription, Criminology, Genetic Engineering, Physiotherapy,Bio Technology, Bio Chemistry etc being few of them. He also made the kids understand that besides studies the soft skills are very imoprtant but the academic cut offs play a vital role in getting into a course. According to Parishit the subjects like Psychology are gaining the momentum as in the future it will be more of the Human studies which will fetch people more jobs and in the field of Sports the amazing change is seen in the last few years. He said few years back nobody ever thought of a wrestle earning in crores but the 21st century has made it possible for all sports to flourish be it Kabbadi, Khk Kho, Basketball, Badminton, Lawn Tennis, Table Tennis, Football or the Cricket. He told kids that even if one is not selected in the International Cricket and can only make a place in the IPLs his 7 generations can live on his earnings. Sports Management, Sports Journalism, Sports Therapy etc are some of the important courses which have been introduced today and all are highly rewarding opportunities.Students had asked a lot of questions on the diverse topics and could find soothing answers in a very befitting manner from Parikshit.

Art of Living Happiness Course was done by 65 teachers of the senior school of Jodhamaland each one felt being transcended... Happiness Course was conducted by Art of Living instructor Ms. ShwetaGolani who came from Bangalore from Shri Shri''s Ashram and is the renowned AOL teacher from Dehradun...without dipping in water we can never truly know how it feels to have a swim? This Happiness Course by Shwetaji made Jodhamal teachers effortlessly sponge up whatever was offered in the Programme in the three days course.. Most happiest three days for each staff member and they all experienced the transition through the techniques taught, processes done and other practical tools taught during the course....Each one went home after completion of the course as a calm, relaxed, healthier, more knowledgeable and happier person with easy to use tools they can use to maintain the benefits of this course for a life time...A happy mind makes us stay calm; make better decisions and improve the overall quality of life and with such feelings the course came to a close.. All teachers appreciated Ms. ShwetaGolani's energy level and knowledge and were highly elated to have been provided this opportunity by the school management....School Principal Trilok Singh Bist appreciated the efforts of the forward looking management which does things out of the box and sets precedence..NandanKuthiala and AratiKuthiala are dedicated to the cause of education in the state and are determined to take the school education to the next level in the state. During the course the Techniques taught to accept the people and situations the way they come, was one of the lesson for all those who get disturb at the slightest of the blow in life. Shweta Golani told everyone that the opposite values are complimentary to each other so if we have some sorrow in life then only we will be able to value the happiness and if one experiences the heat then only he would sense the cold. She also told the teachers to have their opinion and should not become the football of other people's opinion. During the SudershanKriya the teachers felt so relaxed and got transcended to a different world. Art of Living was an experience of an altogether different kind which most of the schools and corporate world is giving to their employees and IIT's are providing to their students and Jodhamal Public School has taken the first step forward and is determined to get it for staff, students, support staff and even for parents in the times to come.
