    We are launching the Ten Talks series on 30 March 2012 with a panel discussion about 'emotional safety' in schools. The question for discussion would be "Do Schools Care ?" This is in line with our continuing and deepening interest in the need to nurture the affective domain in schools. We have piloted a whole-school intervention called Safe and Sensitive Schools, with the support from Wipro Applying Thoughts in Schools. It was a 2 and a half year project, across 11 schools in Bangalore, with the main objective of 'making schools gentler spaces'. This and in the light of the recent incidents of violence on students by teachers and vice-versa in the school context, we 'kick start' Ten Talks on with "Do Schools Care ?"

    We would like to introduce the panellists:

    Dr. Shekhar Seshadri

He is currently  Professor, Department of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, National Institute of Mental Health and Neuro Sciences (NIMHANS), Bangalore.

    Ms. Hansa Vithani

    MRS.VITHANI NEWVithani was brought up with the idea of being a house wife, with a career and a profession no where in the horizon, though her mother was herself a teacher.

She started the Vidya Niketan School as a Nursery  school in 1981 with just a handful of children, with a dream of having at least 25 – 30 children. She believes she was destined to be working in the education space, and is extremely thankful for it. Mrs. Vithani also believes that “we need to teach with love and work with Joy and with zero irritation to parents”. The focus of their school vision is  co-operation over competition.
