My Good School

Bali, India
We have demonstrated learning can be easily personalised and assessment must be a fun process to leave a life long impact. Our philosophy of quality in education, offering an environment where experiential learning is made possible through activities beyond just study, brings to life learning that would otherwise be theoretical and uncoordinated. #MyGoodSchool
Introduction

My Good School Philosophy

School Coach
“I see the possibility of a nation where every school offers young people the opportunity to be rewarded for challenging themselves, rewarded for engaging with adult mentors, rewarded when finishing school, and rewarded for giving back to their communities. I believe we can help connect young people with new opportunities to change their world.”

School Coach

My Good School Program

How do the 4S’s - Service, Skill, Sport and Study - shapes our lives? Take a closer look at your school years and see how first from service, on to skill… we evolve. If you delve even further, you will find that the 4S’s are placed in the dictionary in the very same order. Moving from your small family space on to school, it all starts with learning to give and share, your space, your food, your things… and this really if the first form of service. Yes, you acquire skills, play a sport for good health and get the full experience at school, to achieve what we call the goal of ‘study’.

With over three decades of volunteering with schools, in 2012 the search for My Good School took Sandeep Dutt to the Bali village of Rajasthan and this is where we have worked to build perhaps the My Good School. The Fabindia School is indeed a shining example of the aristocracy of service. This school's mission is to provide access to high-quality education for boys and girls at the rural level using English as the medium of instruction. The school views primary education as a major stepping stone towards social mobility, equality and employment opportunities. Since its inception, the school has been committed to encouraging education for girls. From being the first English medium school to admit girls to being recognised as one of the five Changemaker Schools in India in 2018 by CSE. The twenty-fifth-year celebrations of The Fabindia School in 2017, were indeed a celebration of My Good School.

Tips for implementation
To join the My Good School Alliance, the school must agree with of philosophy of 'beyond just study'. A school must have the facilities to help children get involved in Service, Skill, Sport and Study. The focus of learning has to be experiential and children need to empathise with the environment the school creates. We assist the school in aligning the curriculum to help showcase the work done by the students in Service, Skill, Sport and Study. The Program helps improve student learning and the outcome is monitored closely. Our ongoing support includes 1. Monitoring & Evaluation Tool for effective delivery of the My Good School Program; 2. My Good School Report Card (for students below 10 years); 3. My Good School Record Book (for students above 10 years); 4. Unlimited Skype and Email support; and 5. Access to the Learning Forward India Academy.
