Report on TEAM BUILDING PROGRAM
A day out of the routine that too surrounded by the green and pastoral ambience along with the entire 'Doon Family' was altogether an awesome experience.
'The custodians of posterity' and the 'guardians of discipline' went on a roller coaster ride hand in hand making the Team Building Program a success.
All the members had a gala time during the journey towards The Thakran Farms at Pataudi which is approx 80 kms away from the bustling Delhi.
The eyes startled at the sight of a macro village arena comprising mud houses and mud huts.Finger licking breakfast was apt to boost everyone's energy.
The Team Building Program included a small celebration where all were jubilant and congratulated Manager Sir on his birthday.
The entire staff enjoyed being a part of the fun filled games organized by the senior secondary teachers.
The interaction with the peers and the proctors and various managerial authorities was quite informal.Through this interaction the efficiency and effectiveness of each and every member turned into efficacy.
A delicious lunch with buttermilk and then the mud bath followed by the pool bath refreshed all.No one could stop moving their feet when the leg tapping music had filled the air.
Though fatigued with the day long action but reviified in the spirits,the entire team came back with unforgettable memories and zest to surge ahead.

Like the members of other professions, teachers and education support staff need to be continuous learners who see their own learning as being fundamental to membership of the profession rather than something that is incidental or optional. In today’s world the status of the teaching profession needs to be raised to make it more attractive to the top graduates. This is accomplished by giving teachers and school leaders more freedom to use their professional judgement, reducing day-to-day bureaucracy and unnecessary procedural regulations encouraging more high-quality teachers into priority subjects. For the teachers already part of the noble cause it is necessary that they receive solid training that gives them the practical skills they will need and that they have access to high-quality professional development so they can continue to improve throughout their careers.
