A typical classroom at Taruwin is a vibrant and enriched learning space. What strikes you at first glance is that our class sizes are intimate – restricted to a small group of 25 students. This allows the facilitators to give abundant attention to each child. A warm and friendly atmosphere pervades our classrooms, which far from being passive learning sessions, see enthusiastic participation from students.
We believe that learning evolves through a two-way interaction between facilitators and students. Hence, our classroom sessions focus on collaborative learning, rather than a one-sided approach. The teaching methodology, which we follow, is one of active engagement. We encourage our students to take initiative and engage with their own learning process. This self-directed approach not only enables children to get involved and learn actively through their own successes and failures, but also heightens their ability to think for themselves. ‘Smart Boards’ or interactive whiteboard in every classroom have an added impact on the efficacy of learning and offer several advantages over conventional black boards, including increased interactivity and enjoyment, greater opportunities for participation and collaboration with the teacher and a lessened need for note-taking.
The Taruwin Faculty
An outstanding team of teaching professionals guide and mentor our students. Our team of qualified teachers – whom we call ‘facilitators’ – creates a structured and enriched learning environment, whereby knowledge flows seamlessly. At the same time, our facilitators also view each child as a unique individual, with distinctive attributes and abilities, and ensure that they establish a personalized rapport with every student in the class. Our team of facilitators are held to a very high standard, both personally and professionally. They undergo regular appraisals where knowledge levels are assessed and need gaps analyzed, following which In-Service Training Programs are organized, either for a group or for an individual facilitator. These programs are conducted to keep a continuous process of knowledge enhancement underway as well as to embrace the latest in educational and classroom practices.
