Winters are reminiscent of warm socks, hot cocoa, roasted peanuts, steaming coffee and many such things. If one is a student, winters prove to be a harbinger of fun-filled holidays. On the contrary, winter breaks are supposed to be a period of rejuvenation and restoration of passion and teaching energy for smart teachers.


Winter is also a reminder of flocks of migratory birds flying high above in the sky. Birds are known for their long migratory journeys taken in the winter season in search of better food and shelter. The prime reason to migrate is survival. The same way, keen teachers also migrate towards places where opportunities of professional development are available.


Keeping those astute teachers in mind, BIRD (Badri Institute of Resource & Development) resolved to lead the migration pack this winter break to Badri High School where Winter Learning Festival was being held. It commenced on 24th of December 2018 and lasted till 29th of December 2018.

The variety of workshops and professional development sessions were attended by a number of teachers from different schools and institutions such as Pathways British School, The Academy, The Noori Educators, Eureka, Lilies School and many others including the teachers of Badri High School. The attendants were filled with brand new vigor and energy by the end of the festival. A Head teacher from Noori Educators, Ms. Rukhsar Nizam commended the efforts of the facilitators and said, “These workshops and training sessions are vital for every teacher to attend as it truly restores in us the passion with which we started teaching.”  Her colleague, Sadaf added, “I have attended many workshops but all of them e wercostly. These workshops were very reasonable for the pocket of a teacher, and that too certified. Surely, this is a plus.”

BIRD intends to facilitate students, parents and teachers by arming them with the skill set required in the 21st century as we believe that every teacher needs to improve not because they are not good enough, but because they can be even better.
