The Indian Public School to Benefit from Global Advisory Board 

TIPS  pupils and teachers will now benefit from a newly formed Global Advisory Board which features former UK Education Secretary Baroness Estelle Morris.

The international school in Chennai, established in 2011, joined Globeducate, one of the world’s leading K-12 premium bilingual and international schools groups. The new Global Advisory Board will work with senior leaders across the group´s network of 55 schools and online programmes in nine countries.

Five voluntary members have joined this Board, all leading figures in educational policy, sustainability, technology and curriculum. In addition to Baroness Estelle Morris and renowned educator and author Mick Waters, both from the UK, this team of experts includes award-winning Artificial Intelligence and computer scientist Dr Nuria Oliver from Spain, global school improvement expert Trillium Hibbeln, currently based in Shanghai, and Carlo Giardinetti, based in Switzerland, who will advise on sustainability and net-zero strategies.

“This is a really exciting development for all of the schools in Globeducate but particularly for IPS,” explains Rita Gopikrishnan, Head of School, “It sets us apart from other schools in the Chennai region. The Indian Public School has nearly 1600 children and through membership of Globeducate we have access to resources such as leading experts, global learning communities, international travel between our schools, professional development and leadership programmes, global events for our students, partnerships such as the WWF and involvement in pilot projects such as the LEGO® Education programme in robotics. This new Global Advisory Board will provide a forum for new ideas and for collaboration and ensure that we really are leading the way in innovative education for the 21st-century.”

The Indian Public school will be able to count on the support, insights and advice from these leaders in the fields of international education, research, governmental institutions, sustainability and digital technologies. The board members have generously agreed to give their time to Globeducate and its schools on a voluntary basis.

Daniel Jones, Chief Education Officer of Globeducate, said: “This project has been important to us for a long time. Now, in this post-COVID-19 period, we find education is at the heart of recovery and we are delighted to be working with these five leading international figures. I know they are looking forward to visiting our schools, where they will witness first-hand some of the great work that is taking place. We are all excited about where this latest powerful union will take us.”

TIPS proudly presents Mahashri Ranjith Kumar of Grade 9, TIPS Coimbatore CBSE  who was one of the Panelists representing the younger generation in UN COP26( Global Fight against climate change) 👏

This event is much awaited by the Indian media who have all their ears open to capture Indian
Leaders who are participating in the summit.
We all did see that the G20, COP26 saw a special protocol for the Indian Prime Minister Shri
Narendra Modi who said that the country had five climate-related pledges, including meeting
50% of its energy needs by renewable means by 2030. Prime Minister Narendra Modi also
announced that India will achieve net-zero carbon emissions by 2070.
Well, this being the National Highlights, we the TIPSIANS are proud to draw the spotlight on
our Student Prodigy, Mahashri Ranjith Kumar who is pursuing her Class 9 in TIPS CBSE
Coimbatore Campus, is now a member of the Youth Stem Summit Design Team.
Under the STEM For All and The Climate Crisis COP26 Hybrid Event – A session where
around 18 experienced International Engineers and Scientists from around the world had
gathered to ‘Walk the Talk’ on the ‘Role of STEM’ and ‘Role of Youth and Women in STEM’
spoke on the various issues and problems that are prevailing and rapidly spreading Climatic
Crisis that are destroying the earth.
The COP26 had a Decision-Making Panel that answered the various questions posed by the
audience. The Panel members replied with possible solutions to all the queries and arising
concerns that were of global interest.
Last but not the least, Mahashri voiced the honour of the Decision Making Panel and gave a
noteworthy response to the questions,
🌎What was going on in #COP26? and
🌎If she feels hopeful and helpful that they got to be making the change?
Mahashri’s collection of reports, surveys, and quotes of statistics were mindblowing and her
confidence in the youth held everyone in awe. She did mention the different ways through
which the youth are trying to spread and bring in awareness among the people who are still
oblivious of the consequences of the Climate Crisis.
Her words ‘We are the first generation to be affected by Climate Crisis and We are the last
generation to tackle it before it becomes catastrophic and irreversible.’, made the listeners
wonderstruck and ignited their consciousness that reminded them of their duty.
She concluded that since it is a do-or-die situation it is the need of the hour and she is pretty
hopeful that #COP26 looks forward to bring-in the actual change i.e., WALK THE TALK.

Short Peek Into The Panel Discussion On ‘How Should Educators Deal With Helicopter Parents’.
Check Out Dr Sonali, Our Director-Tips Presenting Her Views.

Helicopter Parenting

“A helicopter parent pays extremely close attention to a child’s experiences and problems, particularly at educational institutions. Helicopter parents are so named because they oversee every aspect of their child’s life constantly.”

With nuclear families, parents are getting over-obsessive about every move of their children and want to control the progress. This leads to a lot of complications. The panelists present in this discussion are top educators, trying to make sense of the situation and want to find ways to resolve it with empathy and understanding.

Education News Network (ENN) is the only online news channel dedicated to education. A division of Education Today organized an online panel discussion on 12th Feb. We’re happy to share that our Sonali Mam was part of the panelists during the session.
