SHEMFORD Group of SchoolsIt is a matter of pride to pen down the message for the school magazine of Shemford Futuristic School, Pinjore. The seeds of an idea to set up a world-class institution in 1995 have borne fruit today with this amazing campus in the beautiful Pinjore valley. Today it is one of the finest campuses in the Tri-City region and has built a solid reputation of the quality of the teaching-learning methods in the school. A testimony to the wonderful work done here is the awards that the school has bagged including the title of “2nd Best Co-ed Boarding School in Haryana” from Education World Magazine. Shemford is also acknowledged by the prestigious Limca Book of Records 2013 with the title of “Most Schools Launched in Shortest Time”. All these achievements are possible due the amazing work done by the Staff and students of Shemrock & Shemford Group of Schools. Today, my heart fills with immense pleasure as I see the school magazine take shape showcasing the amazing talent of the students and staff of this institution. I extend my warm wishes to the Principal, the Staff and Students of Shemford and hope to continue this journey together on the road to excellence!

World-class infrastructure and a sound academic programme with the futuristic approach at Shemford Pinjore provide our students ample opportunities to explore, discover and experiment with hands on material helping them enhance their learning skills- nurture their natural talents and broaden their horizons. Thus, empowering our SHEMSTARS to be creative, competent, value-driven, confident to excel in life as global leaders in their own areas.

Technology is all around us and our children are going to be influenced by it one way or another. Today, the younger generation is much more comfortable reading and learning digital text than printed text. Thus, at SHEMFORD Futuristic School, Pinjore- we accept digital media as a friend and not a foe. We have supplemented technologies such as Interactive Board, 3D Theatre, etc. in the school to achieve the following major aims : –
Help Children learn concepts better through the use of Audio Visual resources- both- in the school and at home.
Facilitate better School-Home Communication.
Make children more comfortable with the usage of technology as they will be entering a Tech-Enabled workplace. In such a scenario, it is essential for students to be aware of leading technologies such as data analytics, artificial intelligence, cyber security etc etc. Since these skills are much better grasped through practical experiences. It becomes important to introduce digital technology to the students from an early age.
We have already launched the Google classroom project in which children can learn concepts at their own pace. We hope to receive parents’ support in the implementation of the same. Through proper guidance and conversations, parents can make sure that digital media is used as a means of interaction and not isolation. The wealth of knowledge on the internet enhances learning and builds up confidence in children.
The key for parents and educators is to encourage healthy internet and digital media practices. Parents must regulate screen time for children and place some degree of parental controls on the content that children have access to. Furthermore, children should be made completely aware of the repercussions of excessive digital media usage. Parents must also create a safe space wherein children can freely talk about their experience with digital media. The family bonding is much more exciting and enriching by watching movies together, playing online games and using many other digital technologies available. It makes parenting much more fun.

It gives me immense pride in penning down my message for the School Magazine of SHEMFORD Futuristic School, Pinjore. I am sure the magazine will give you an insight into our students’ curiosities, thoughts and creativity through varied expressions.
Children are curious beings who like to explore their surroundings. They want to find out the what, the why and the how of things that interest them. At SHEMFORD, we have a unique curriculum called ShemEduMax which aims to utilise these curiosities and interests of children for their overall development. Its 16 pillars bring out the full potential in students and lay the foundation of their success by making them self-confident, emotionally balanced and developing a love for learning in them.
To make them life-long learners, we deliver knowledge through our Technology-Aided teaching methods in a conducive learning environment where children can unlock their curiosities and have a better understanding of concepts. Teachers at SHEMFORD, welcome their doubts and creativity and encourage them to develop their own ideas and thinking. They help them to overcome their hesitation and fear of being wrong or not being taken seriously as per our Thinking Skills Development and Personality Enhancement modules. Also, we prepare them for the 21st-century world without compromising our values through our English Conversation Development and SHEMFORD Sanskar programmes. Moreover, to make learning fun so that children enjoy what they learn, we have a Theme-Based Learning programme along with our Wow Wednesdays and Super Saturdays! We strongly believe that a child’s development is incomplete without the involvement of parents and for that, we have ShemFAST and Synergy programmes to make them a part of their child’s learning process. Lastly, to keep our students physically fit we have a distinct Health and Wellness Morning programme.
Life-Long Learning is only possible when children don’t learn for the sake of grades instead they have a love for learning. And to develop that love, we have tried a fusion of different programmes to make the learning process interesting and engrossing.
