Covid could not dampen our spirits; we leveraged this opportunity to intensify learning and spread knowledge. ARTRAC Primary School was one of the first schools to get started with ‘Virtual Classrooms’ on Microsoft Teams to resume the academic curriculum. Numerous parents have benefitted from our online counselling.

Overcoming Digital Distraction

To enhance our kids education & way of teaching, various facilities like Smart Boards, Library Tables and Resource Room have been incorporated for better learning. The school exploited opportunity offered by COVID very well to upgrade and modernize its infrastructure and system of education to ensure quality education to its students online. These facilities and tools will also help later in improving education standards when the school reopens for physical attendance by students.

Skilling : Kaushal Bharat, Kushal Bharat

Through our Vocational Training Centres (VTCs), spread across the length and breadth of the country, we are empowering our ladies with diverse skills, those that make our women more independent in their daily chores as also in terms of professional opportunities. In doing so, we are also sensitive to the imperatives of 'technology adaptation’ and ‘economic inclusion'.
