The New Millennium School–Bahrain (NMS), set up in 2004, functions under the banner of the Knowledge Management Group.
The school is led by its chairman Padmashree Dr Ravi Pillai, a visionary entrepreneur, passionate educationist and pioneer par excellence in industry, charity and education.
NMS has carved a niche for itself under the dynamic leadership of principal Arun Kuumar Sharma. His vision, selfless service and innovative guidance in teaching and learning practices have resulted in the school being accredited ‘Good’ by the Education and Training Quality Authority (BQA).
Core teaching methodologies at the school includes flip learning, peer learning, interdisciplinary approach, life connect, multiple intelligence skills, use of VAT (visual, auditory, tactile) skills, learning objectives-based worksheets and experiential learning.
Promoting students to think out of the box is a usual practice.
Some of the student initiated activities include self-scripted class assemblies, commerce kitchen, charity drive and book sale and campaigns on environmental sensitivity, safety and healthy lifestyle. Children also maintain the school garden and write GDBD (Good Deed Bank Deposit) in the Almanac every day.
Other initiatives include: ‘Dear (Drop everything and read) Time’, Cura (an initiative for recycling paper), Earth hour, e-magazine, Model United Nations, Technozone, Radio NMS, expression time and wellness time during online classes.
The school’s strong digital infrastructure has been successful in meeting every child’s learning needs and engaged learners enthusiastically during the pandemic.
Additional support provided to students in the smart classes conducted through flip and blended learning – that featured interactive activities, online assignments, individual projects and enriched learning resources from KG to Grade 12 – instilled optimism and flexible learning pathways during the crisis hour.
NMS has and will continue to ensure a balance between knowledge and its implications, seek to teach solutions in real-life situations and groom children into creative and constructive future citizens.
