Amid great pride and honor, Parentof in association with ASSOCHAM presented the ‘Parentof Innovation Awards 2017’, a platform that recognized extraordinary commitment by schools towards the 360-degree growth and development of students.

 

Over 150 schools from different zones of Bangalore and Boards submitted their nominations for the Awards, and over 15000 parents participated in the voting process. The schools were judged under five categories that included innovations in parent engagement, student health & safety, co-curricular development, information & communication technology, and innovation in inculcating value education.

 

Shri Vajubhai Vala, the Hon’ble Governor of Karnataka, the Chief Guest, inaugurated the celebration with the lighting of the lamp and felicitated the winning schools.

The Parentof Innovation Awards is a co-construction of research, analyses and response to the changing trends in Education. The sector has evolved over the years, and the Awards were an attempt to recognize excellence and Innovation in initiatives that are centered on the all-round development of children.

 

Parentof conducted a study on the Best Practices adopted by school in the Primary and Secondary education segment in Karnataka. This study covered Governmental schools as well as private schools with State and the Central syllabi. The objective of the awards was to recognize schools that are in the forefront of inculcating programs and initiatives that focus on the all-round development of children.

 

This effort has resulted in significant understanding of the initiatives taken by schools towards improving the level of education with a focus on all-round development of children, which will provide insights and inputs useful for policy reforms.
