A two-day transformational workshop on Vedic Mathematics and Memory Techniques was organized for the students of St. Peter’s School on 6th July and 7th July 2019. The workshop was conducted by Mr. Dhaval Bathia from Mumbai who is an international bestselling author of five books and holds the “Guinness World Record” for teaching how to memorize vocabulary words and “Limca Book Record” for teaching in the maximum schools across the world.
It was indeed a great pleasure for all of us to have Mr. Bhatia at St. Peter’s for our students and teachers.
On the first day, three sessions were conducted for the students. Mr. Sunil Mane, HOD of Mathematics department started this workshop with a formal introduction of Mr. Bathia to all students and teachers.
The first session was for our Junior students from Grade 3 & 4. In this session, students experienced how 3D technology works, which was later followed by a few memory techniques. The second session was for our Middle age group students from Grade 5 to 7 and the third session was for our big boys, the senior age group. In both these sessions, the students were shown and taught amazing techniques of Vedic Mathematics to arouse interest in them towards the Mathematics subject.
The second day had two sessions respectively for Junior & Senior students. In these sessions, our students learnt some amazing powerful tricks to remember answer contents for various subjects such as History, Geography, Chemistry, etc.
The second day came to an end with a felicitation ceremony of the speaker, Mr. Bathia by our principal, Dr. Wilfred Noronha. In his thanksgiving speech, Dr. Noronha emphasized on the importance of memory techniques been taught to our students in these past two days, and that how useful they will be for them.
Mr. Bhatia appreciated the efforts of the School Management, Principal and Mr. Sunil Mane for the wonderful coordination and execution of this two days’ workshop. Feedback received from our students for the same was very encouraging and positive.
