Democratic Values

Democratic norms at TLS

The Learning School is an institute that believes in teamwork and self-responsibility by creating an environment of competition and appreciation rather than threats and punishments from principal to guards & teachers to students.

The comprehensive training workshop at Dev Samaj College of Education, Chandigarh, allowed the guests to give their input about:-

  • Improving the quality of teaching and learning through Enquiry;
  • Building learning relationships in the classroom using alternative/theater techniques;
  • Developing the Role of Special Education Needs
  • Focusing on appraisals and school development plans
  • Working with puppets in a classroom
  • The Teaching-Learning Matrix: the need to plan the lessons, micro-skills, and planning
  • Getting started with tools of teaching: Teaching Methodologies for teaching Social Studies, Science, English, and Mathematics
  • Understanding the Magical mystery of accepting

Students grouped into four houses, namely Iqbal House, Jinnah House, Fatima House, and Ayesha House, for all their activities and evaluation linearly and horizontally divided into three sections for administrative purposes, namely Junior Section, Middle Section, and High Section in this way each class belongs to a particular department and house.

Each house competes with others throughout the year, from the morning assembly, discipline, class cleanliness, sports to academics. And the mistake of one or group of students can deduce the marks and achievement of one student or a group at a student can increase and add up effects. And the house scoring maximum marks is declared house of the year at the end of the session. Thus implying the self-responsibility of each student as students themselves are a check on each other.

To inculcate leadership & democracy among the students following student's administration is working. Any student scoring 70% marks can apply for class posts, while for higher positions, most senior concerned classes of the same eligibility can apply.

All the Teachers, Administrative staff, Ayas, Guards, and Drivers were evaluated through separate proforma, which contain measurable points; thus, five being max and zero m in issues which is ultimately associated with further pay rise apart from the regular increments.

Section heads are supposed to fill the proforma, and teachers sign their respective proforma if they agree, or they can appeal to the Principal for non-satisfaction; hence the matter is brought to a solution with logical reasoning and documentary proves, if yet not satisfied, can apply to the Trust (KDT) for the final appeal through a written application forwarded by the Principal.

At the end of the year, the Best Teacher of each section, Best Administrative Staff, Best Ayas, Best Driver & Best Guard, are declared with an award of an honorary Shield.
