Healthy Students, Better Learners
There’s an old saying that a healthy mind resides in a healthy body. It has also been scientifically proven that nutritious food is directly related to children’s intellectual development. Any deficiency of vitamins or other nutrients can not only affect their physical health, but also their concentration, comprehension, and retention of learning. Through the activity presented in ‘Healthy Student, Better Learners’, teachers have found an engaging way to foster health and hygiene habits in students.Creation of enquiry-led self-learning environment, Improve learning outcomes and decrease learning gaps, Increase involvement of parents in their child’s education

Students’ attendance has remained a consistent challenge in government schools in India. Despite being enrolled in the school, many students frequently miss their classes due to which government schools continue to fare poorly in the learning outcomes. To reverse this trend, the innovation ‘Improving Attendance’ presents child-centric ways of not only motivating the students to attend school, but also of providing them continuous support so they are not deviated from their focus on education.Improve learning outcomes and decrease learning gaps, Improve student enrolment/attendance and reduce drop-outs rate
