SCHOOL HUMAN RESOURCE DEVELOPMENT CENTRE (SHRD CENTRE)
The School Human Resource Development Centre organizes programmes that respond to the specific needs of students, teachers, as well as parents that help facilitate the fulfilment of the institution’s academic and non-academic goals. It aims to ensure optimum learning and holistic growth for all students.
The SHRD Centre offers a range of supportive services and development programs such as counselling, career guidance, mental health programs such as stress management, health and hygiene, and safety programs like cyber safety and protection against child abuse (POCSO). The centre organizes Thanmayi, a three-day residential camp for class X.
A. Thanmayi - Residential Camp
Every child at Devagiri CMI Public School looks forward to Thanmayi, the most exciting outdoor classroom event in the school calendar. It recaptures the spirit of the ancient gurukula system of educational orientation, leading children to self-reliance and personal excellence. It is intended to transcend the process of learning by taking the learners out from the classrooms to the vast expanses of nature.
Children stay with their teachers and fellow students, learning the ever valid lessons in life skills, study techniques, career planning, soft skills, goal setting and self-management. The activity-oriented and interactive sessions will expose the children to a unique experience of self-empowerment.
The highlights of the camp: Yoga, meditation, fitness drills, theatre and folklore, interactive and motivational sessions, picnic, games, campfire, leisure, and social living.
B. Sancharam - Tours and Picnics
Guided tours and picnics are always learning experiences. They have great recreational as well as educational value. Hence, the school arranges trips to various places of interest once a year for all students. A trip to the nearby park, the planetarium or just plain sightseeing, helps children expand their world. It teaches them to respond to different situations outside the sheltered environment of the classroom. Venturing into public places allows children to develop and enrich their social skills as they encounter more people.
Tours and picnics give the children and teachers the chance to have fun in an informal atmosphere. Teachers interact with their students in a relaxed way in this type of activity.
C. Students Welfare and Support Programme against Child Abuse (POCSO)
This programme helps students to maintain mental health and help them follow safety measures against physical or sexual abuse. It serves as a support system for children who face problems along these lines.
