Workshop By Mr. Brian Seymour
A workshop for teachers was conducted by Mr. Brian Seymour, the Principal of G D Somani. Fifty teachers teaching the Senior Section attended the workshop.

The workshop was an intermix of un and seriousness. To break the ice and to put the teachers at ease, the workshop began with a dance session by Mr. Dhanish, a choreographer with Mr. Shiamak Davar. The teachers thoroughly enjoyed learning to dance and matching their steps in sync with Mr. Dhanish who made dance seem so simple and easy.

Mr. Brian came across as an eloquent communicator through a number of quotations and wise sayings he conveyed to the teacher how to deal with the modern child. The workshop made the teachers ponder and introspect. He made us believe that each one of us is a bright light of creativity and intelligence and what was necessary was to 'step out of line'.

Mr. Brian conveyed to us how to make teaching enjoyable to be proud to be part of the profession. He wanted us to ask ourselves whether we wanted to act like a symphony conductor or like a lion tamer. Teachers were asked to adapt and to be innovative and uncover oneself with humour and fun in the classroom. The teacher's role is to hold every child's hand to take the child from mediocrity to excellence. Mr. Brian also emphasized on how one should use words judiciously to talk slowly and clearly. After all words spoken by the teacher leaves a long lasting impression on the child.

Every workshop is a learning experience. This workshop was no different. The workshop was enriching in every way. Mr. Brian conveyed a very relevant message that life is beautiful, every moment is to be enjoyed. A good teacher is one who is heard, learns to appreciate, is creative and passionate. What Mr. Brian taught us was that 'Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass…, it's about learning to dance in the rain.'
