Life Skills Session - " School Cinema " at GIIS Chinchwad

Life Skills Session – ‘School Cinema’ at GIIS Chinchwad.

The structure of education and delivering knowledge has seen a sea of change in the recent years; for example moving to the CCA model of assessment, learning based on life skills etc. There have been many changes with the changing times.

Keeping in tune with this changing time and as per the instructions of the CBSE, GIIS Chinchwad too has education imparted using life skills. World Health Organization defines Life Skills as “abilities for adaptive and positive behavior that enable individuals to deal effectively with the demands and challenges of everyday life”.

As a part of the Life skills model of education, GIIS took another leap by introducing the ‘School Cinema’ Sessions for Class VIII on 12th July, 2013.This will be followed by similar Cinema Sessions for all other classes too.

For Class VII, the movie chosen was, ‘Checkmate’. This session of showing cinema to the students was conducted in their Life Skills period on 12th July 2013. The movie showed the value of friendship and how competition should not let your friendship ruin it. Students were totally engrossed for those 20 minutes. The session ended with a short discussion on the student’s views and thoughts on the related topic .This would be followed by the workbook activity in the next week.

Similar sessions have been planned for other classes too where students will get an opportunity to learn while whey have fun. This method surely helps to have a much greater impact on the child’s thoughts and definitely helps him learn better.
