The highlight of the workshop was the inspiring session with Darshan Education Foundation’s Founder Chairman, Sant Rajinder Singh Ji Maharaj who addressed the participants on 12 May. He encouraged the team to meditate regularly to find peace and happiness within and emphasized that actions speak louder than words. Participants expressed how the spiritual curriculum has made a positive difference in both the students’ and teachers’ lives and that it is gratifying to see the students gain a peaceful foundation.

During the two days facilitators and participants shared best practices, demo lessons and activities on a variety of topics, such as storytelling, creating a welcoming class environment, and how to teach ethical values in a fun way.
