The Student Committees aim to put responsibility for the school’s key operational aspects right into the hands of the students themselves. The committees are set up with consensus between students and teachers. The day to day running and overall management of each committee is done by the students, with supervision and mentoring by a teacher.

In Redlawada, the committees have shown a high level of efficiency and care in the areas of Water Management, Neatness, Sports & Games, Discipline and Dining & Mess Management. The smooth running has demonstrated leadership capacities in its student leaders, team cooperation and good delegation, along with community engagement within and outside their school – all qualities that are necessary in life.

The diligence towards maintaining a high level of monitoring and feedback has also helped improve the quality of education.

Kalleda School – Recognition for Innovative Educational Activities

Being the first RDF school, Kalleda School has always been the first to pilot and initiate new programs, for students and teachers alike. Therefore over the past two decades, it has executed several innovative learning programs in English, Math, Science, Computers, Reading/Library, Sports, Art and other extra-curricular activities, which have then been replicated in other RDF schools. The teachers have also been diligent in getting trained and employing each new activity in the school. We are all very pleased with this great accomplishment for the very first RDF institution.

Matendla School – Award for Innovative Language Enhancement Activities

The Matendla School team is a great example of being receptive and open minded to new ways of teaching and learning. The team has come up with novel ideas to improve English language and communication skills. The infectious ‘Coin Game’ and ‘Radio Station’ have won appreciation and praise for their ingenuity.

For the ‘Radio Station’, students from various classes, by turn, write content and make important as well as fun announcements each day that help improve their writing, speaking and anchoring skills. These include News for the day – from an English daily, G.K. questions and ‘Do you Know’ quizzes to build knowledge and Thought for the day for motivation. Important information like academic announcements, achievements and forthcoming events are also relayed by each team.

In the ‘Coin Game’, each student is given a coin at the start of the day. If a student overhears another student speak Telugu, the coin is handed over to the student who has ‘caught’ them. The student with the maximum coins at the end of the day is the ‘winner’. With a sense of playfulness about it, the game has caught on with everyone, teachers included, with many students striving to speak in English and trying to win the maximum number of coins.

The Education World India School Rankings Awards 2016 will be conferred at The Leela Ambience Hotel, Gurgaon, Haryana later this month.
