IAYP also believes that not all learning happens inside the four walls of classroom. Young people need experiences outside the classroom to become committed, responsible and fulfilled citizens of the world.
The students who have achieved the Gold award had already won Bronze and Silver awards sequentially by successfully accomplishing their projects. To win Gold award they had to conduct a residential project which they accomplished at Goriaguli Village, Sonapur, Kamrup on a plot of land under the proprietorship of MBRS itself. Under this project the students established a ring-well to help the poor villagers to quench their thirst with pure drinking water. Earlier, the villagers had to walk miles to collect pure drinking water.
The Award will be formally handed over to MBRS delegation comprising Dr. N. K. Dutta, Founder and Principal, MBRS; Mr. Sidhartha Sen Gupta, Teacher Coordinator of IAYP, MBRS and the 8 Bronsonians at the IAYP Gold Award Ceremony which will be observed on 20th July, 2017 at India International Centre, New Delhi.

Round Square is a worldwide association of about 100 schools on five continents sharing unique and ambitious goals.
Students attending Round Square schools make a strong commitment beyond academic excellence, to personal development and responsibility - based on the ideas of the reforming educationalist and founder of Salem, Kurt Hahn.
By taking on responsibilities, serving their fellows, accepting challenges, having adventures, and sharpening their awareness of international issues, the pupils are able to discover and develop their whole identity.
This basic principle is manifested in the six pillars of the Round Square, the IDEALS:
Internationalism - means being open to the world: Round Square promotes this by means of regular worldwide pupil exchanges, participation in international projects, and the annual Round Square Conference, in which delegations of pupils from all Round Square Schools take part.
Democracy - means participation in the democratic process and the development of a democratic way of thinking, by which democratic awareness is fostered and strengthened as an important element in the school community.
Environmental awareness - Round Square Schools commit themselves to harming the environment as little as possible, and strengthening environmental awareness through projects and campaigns within their schools.
Adventure - Pupils learn to accept physical challenges and achieve moral strength through the outdoor activities and ventures outside school
Leadership - Pupils learn that leadership qualities are based on personal responsibility, courtesy, justice and discipline. Because pupils at Round Square Schools can take on offices, they can train and develop their leadership qualities.
Service - means serving other people. Round Square pupils learn to help - beyond the school boundaries. Every pupil can take part in aid projects anywhere in the world, as well as their service in school or support the fundraising campaigns with which Round Square helps those in need.
It also organizes International Service Projects for students from its member schools. These bring together young people from all over the world to work as a truly international team providing much-needed assistance to disadvantaged communities.
MBRS is fortunate that its rich principles, disciplines and Life skills have been recognized at international level and it has got the privilege to be a member of the Round Square. A team comprising of the Founder & Principal Dr.N.K.Dutta, Lipika Bora PGT (Biology) and student representatives Disha Das and Adjourna Marak from class XI will represent the school in the international level at Singapore in the month of October 2015.

Miles Bronson Residential School Initiates Interaction with the British Council for Education Opportunities Abroad

MBRS News Bureau: Mar 13 An international experience is significant for employers in a globalised economy as they are seeking to recruit future talent that can operate effectively in an international context. The UK is one of the most exciting and productive places in the world for research, creativity and innovation. In surveys, over 93% of post graduate students rate the quality of UK teaching highly. Student visa regulations protect and support genuine Indian students at UK Universities and still allow them to work while studying.
It is important to establish a clear and strong link between our students and the intended universities where they want to study further. This requirement has been duly recognised by MBRS and all out efforts are being made now to facilitate our students' smooth transition.
To bring about better bonding between India and the UK and also make our planet a global village, 57 top ranked UK Universities have joined their hands together under the collaboration of British Council to provide scholarships to the high performing and outstanding students in various subject areas such as Medicine, Engineering, Business, Art, Fashion etc., especially to the students from India.
The main objective of this is to provide Indian students a global exposure by securing seats in top most universities of UK, thereby accessing quality education. They also act like a facilitator to extend all necessary arrangements including educational funds and visa.
In line with the current increased engagement, there were two interactions within last one week.
Mr Indranil Ghosh, Head, Education, British Council, Kolkata, conducted a session on Great India Scholarship UK at MBRS on 12 Mar. Many students attended the programme.
Mr Indranil attracted the students with film shows highlighting the main aspects of higher education in the UK. The film highlighted Indian students' feedback on their experience during their higher study in that country. It was interesting to the students to participate in an interactive session with many questions and answers on the UK. They were very constructively engaged in a quiz wherein visuals of important landmarks, geographical features and world heritage sites were flashed for them to identify. The students, who answered the questions posed to them correctly, were awarded British Council caps.
The programme ended with a definite clarity and a ray of hope for the students who dream of higher education in the UK.
Prior to that Ms Sujata Sen, Director, British Council East India, had invited Dr NK Dutta and his team to a reception dinner on 10 Mar 15 at Hotel Brahmaputra Ashok in Guwahati.
The 'GREAT Britain' campaign is a strategic international marketing programme designed to promote the UK to business, tourism and student markets worldwide in order to enhance the country's global reputation and deliver long term economic benefits. GREAT was officially launched in February 2012.
This also marks the announcement of the GREAT Scholarships in Guwahati. The UK and India share a well established, broad ranging and expanding partnership on education. With 401 scholarships this year, and over 750 in the last two years, the GREAT Britain Scholarships - India 2015 is the largest ever scholarships programme offered to Indian students. The scholarships are worth almost 1.51 million pounds (over Rs. 14 Crore).
The GREAT Careers Guide, which was also unveiled in Guwahati on 10 Mar, addresses critical questions regarding studying in the UK and contains success stories of alumni, contributory articles from UK university career advisors, articles of popular subjects that students choose to study by UK institutions and tips that Indian students should keep in mind when looking for work options after graduating.
As announced earlier by us, we have already registered with the British Council for the International School Award (ISA) and projects under the programme are under way in real earnest. ISA is going to support MBRS in embedding international learning in its own curriculum. Working towards it would give Bronsonians a new perspective on the world and also the skills to work in a global economy. This is closely interlinked with the opportunities abroad as it is hoped to work as a springboard for our students by orienting them towards global education.

In both the PTMs the Principal, with the help of audio-video medium, interacted with parents and explained various factors that come into play in dealing with students of various age groups. He covered the following topics of the closing academic session in detail:
(a) Achievements of the current session. This year has been an exceptionally good year in the history of the School as Bronsonians excelled in many spheres such as sports - basketball and football in particular, debating skills, life skills, co-curricular activities and dances. A No. of dignitaries also graced the School with their presence and they addressed all students and our students were able to interact with them.

(b) Call to parents to come forward and be more proactive in interacting with the School management to discuss various issues affecting the students. He asked them to collaborate with the School management on a broader canvas.
(c) Road map for Classes X and XII. The Principal elaborated the innovative template we follow to prepare our students for board examinations.
Many parents took a very keen interest and asked questions as well put forward very constructive suggestions.
On 20 Dec, the following suggestions were put forward by some of the parents:
(a) Strong emphasis should be laid on spoken English in the School as well as while in hostel and playground. The Principal replied that this is already the norm and vernacular is not permitted. However, on his instructions, all hostel staff members were once again asked to strictly implement this important point.
(b) Mobile phones should be issued to students only for a limited time. The point was well received and the Principal issued directive to limit the use of phones to only three hours on Sun between 0930 hrs and 1230 hrs.
(c) Long term retention of teachers for better performance of students. The School is doing its best to retain teachers for the longest possible time so that teaching is not adversely affected. However, if at all a teacher leaves mid- session, a new and better teacher is hired at the earliest possible.
On 09 Jan, the following points emerged during the meeting:
(a) The Principal emphasised that a student must be escorted by at least one of the parents to pick up and drop from/at the School.
(b) Frequent changes of teachers are not desirable for students as well as the School. The Secretary, Mrs Nandini Dutta, clarified that our retention rate is good and stands at 85 to 90% but we cannot stop 10-15% resignation by teachers. The best efforts, however, are made to replace the teacher within a week with a better teacher. Our selection process is quite objective and the best possible human resource is taken.
(c) One of the parents suggested that mobile phone is not needed for the students. The Principal suggested that we cannot wish away technology and also for emotional well being of students, three hours a week communication window will be provided by the School. He also stressed that any phone on which internet can be accessed will not be allowed and will be confiscated if found on person of a student. The Secretary also made an emphatic point on this issue and asked the parents to ensure their wards are not in possession of expensive phone/smart phone. Parents have to do their part of duty as that will help us implement the policy more effectively.
(d) For emergent needs, it was suggested by a parent, we should stock some essential stationery items in the Tuck Shop. The Principal appreciated this suggestion and assured that it will be implemented.
(e) A few parents expressed their gratitude for the School for the best possible all round development of their children. The PTMs were followed by a sumptuous lunch organized by the School for all parents and then the dispersal of students to their respective places.
The School will reopen on 19 Jan 15.

MBRS ORGANIZES SINGING PERFORMANCE 2014

MBRS News Bureau: Nov 29
"Music speaks what cannot be expressed,
Soothes the mind and gives it rest,
Heals the heart and makes it whole,
Flows from heaven to the soul."

How true! And how comprehensively has the author summed up the importance of music in our lives. At Miles Bronson, we always make an attempt at the overall development of the child. And without music, life is not complete. As a matter of fact Friedrich Nietzsche even went to the extent of saying, "Without music, life would be a mistake." So, we organized, like all these previous years, a Best Singing Performer Competition in the School on 15 Nov. It is so naive to think that talent is rare. If we look deeper and encourage a child to explore, they can amaze us with their latent talent, which is so natural and inherent. Imagine what our children can achieve if that natural talent is further nurtured and important skills imparted to our children. Not surprisingly, the contestants surprised us with their talent. Children sang with melody and mesmerised all present at the venue.
The results were as given under:
Junior Group (Class I to IX):
Best Performer: Renita Wahengbam, Class VIII A (Water House), First Runner Up: Jyotishman Maitra Class VIII B (Earth House), Second Runner Up: Sildime K Binan, Class VI (Air House), Second Runner Up: Disha Mushahary, Class VII (Light House)
Consolation Prizes: Aiko Tamuk, Class VIII A (Air House), Balawansuck Makri, Class IX A (Earth House),
Senior Group (Class X to XII)

He is widely travelled and has held various significant posts at different echelons of governance. He addressed Bronsonians on the topic, "IAS: A Personal Experience."
In a very informal and lucid style, Mr Barua gave a very deep insight into the Civil Services Examination system and also the responsibilities which a very young IAS officer has to shoulder in their very first assignment and the opportunities which the Service provides to them to make a positive change to the society at large. He informed that the Entrance Examination is a test of WIDTH of knowledge and not DEPTH. A candidate is tested in a plethora of subjects over several question papers. It is also as mush a test of endurance and stamina as it is of hard work and perseverance. Ultimately, the one who wins is the one who thinks he can, the one who has a strong belief in himself.
Mr Jishnu Barua informed students that the odds stacked up in the entry to the Services can be judged by the following facts:
(a) The ratio of those who appear in the Preliminary Examination and those who qualify for the Mains is 1:21.
(b) The ratio between those who take the Mains and the successful candidates is 1:250!

He reiterated the fact that there is no alternative to hard work. Scheduled and disciplined study, taking down notes, time management while writing the examinations and practicing writing skills are all very crucial for the success in the examination. As far as the Final Interview is concerned, he added, an honest response to the panel is almost mandatory.
Mr Jishnu Barua dons many hats in the official capacity as well. In addition to being the Principal Secretary to the CM, Assam, he is also the Principal Secretary for Development of Border Areas and also credited with restoring and preserving the Assam State Archives. The website on Assam Archives, which he claimed will be one of the best in the world with colossal data, is being launched officially on 01 Sep 2014.
