He advised children to make use of the new marking scheme. He discussed various career options available for CBSE Curriculum. He suggested the children to raise the bar of Synergy as it proves to be a school with international standards and a kind of its own. He even asked them to make the best use of the facilities provided by the school. Later interacting with teachers, he appreciated us for following CCE.

He advised to walk that extra mile and try to think out of the box as the definition of a teacher is re-defined. He said that the role of a teacher has shifted from teaching to facilitating. As a facilitator, it is the teacher’s responsibility to mould the student. He suggested some tips which would really help teachers to transform the transaction in the class into a fruitful one.
