Teachers Orientation Programme

“You cannot teach a man anything; you can only help him find it himself.”


After a relaxing summer break, teachers of Sophia High School returned to school on the 29 th of May, 2023 to a day of orientation curated just for them. As tradition recounts, day one of orientation began with invoking God’s blessings with a prayer service by the Sisters of Notre Dame. The prayer service focused on ‘Don’t build your house on a sandy land.’ The prayer service calmed the minds of the teachers and prepared them for the session 2023-2024.

Introducing new teachers is a well-awaited part of the day; the teachers were glad to see and welcome many new faces. This was followed by an enriching session by Dr. Gururaj Karajagi, a well-known academician and the Chairman & Director of the Academy of Creative Teaching who was gracious enough to accept the school’s invitation to enlighten the minds of the teachers with his teaching. It was an interactive session filled with activities wherein he focused on the topic ‘Education Unplugged.’ Day one of orientation concluded with a meeting with Sr Alpana, Principal of the High School.
