Combating the hurdles posed by the present situation, Fortune World School commenced its new session with warmth, optimism and zeal. Even though this beginning was done in an unusual and untraditional way, together, as a team, we managed to be triumphant over these testing times. The Staff Members have worked glamorously through these challenging times to ensure that the students receive a continuous and smooth virtual learning experience.

Ronald E. Osborn rightly said,

“Unless you try to do something beyond what you have already mastered, you will never grow.” 

Believing this, one of the most admired schools in Noida, the prestigious Fortune World School which is situated in safe & secure sector-105 of Noida alongside the expressway has strived hard and made use of its strategic and visionary approach to take advantage of the new era of technology and social connectivity during this tough and critical situation.

We shifted our base to virtual platforms to conduct online classes for the academic year 2020-2021, right from making use of the cloud meeting platforms like Zoom & Microsoft Teams and promptly introducing the online classes that are planned with proper scheduling of classes balancing the Quarantine and prioritising the process of learning for the students. The Fortune Fraternity looks forward to providing a potential solution to all the difficulties and challenges.

Fortune World School has taken up the demo-sessions on virtual schooling from the 1st week of April. The teachers were trained to take classes online, and parents/students were guided to carry on with the learning virtually in these exceptional circumstances.

Members of FORTUNE WORLD SCHOOL took every possible measure to make this virtual experience close to their regular school life.

Due to numerous security issues and problems faced with the Zoom App, the school had to shift to Microsoft Teams. Fortune World School took up the responsibility and organised demo sessions with the staff members to make both the parents and the kids comfortable. Regular maintenance of attendance, use of various assessment tools, updating regular home works along the work of the day on MCB App helped the parents to keep track of day-to-day activities.

In order to engage the students and make the learning process more learner-centred, teachers here at Fortune World School have discovered a few apps like KAHOOT, PADLET, GOOGLE FORMS, etc. which worked towards improving the shortcomings of online education to meet the needs and requirements of the students.

We not only focus on academic learning but gave equal importance to the extra-curricular activities as well; right from conducting online exams to organising a Virtual Summer Camp, we did it all. The Virtual Summer Camp included various fun-fledged activities that could be done at home easily, such as

  • Creating various toys from the trash
  • Best out of waste
  • Code-Decode
  • Storytelling
  • Dance
  • Music

And many more!!!

The joy of sharing and learning always gives an overwhelming experience since it breaks all boundaries and unites us with the common mission of providing the best opportunities for our students.

FORTUNE WORLD SCHOOL, Noida organised its very first Virtual Inter-School Competition “IGNITRA 2020” which was highly appreciated by all the fourteen participating schools under the dynamic leadership of one of the eminent educationists- our School Head Dr Poonam Minhas.
