Tagore comes to Ontario schools


The year 2011 marks the 150th birth anniversary of Rabindranath Tagore, a Nobel Laureate poet of India. Tagore advocated educational principles that are “holistic” in its nature and approach. He believed, the development of the “whole” child could only be achieved by living respectfully and in close contact with nature which is so relevant in today’s time. Tagore propagated universal education and brought the West and East together in his school in Santiniketan, India.

To commemorate this special year, we have put together a two week long educational package for Kindergarten to Grade 8 students. The goal is not only to enrich and enlighten the young minds with Tagore’s invaluable literature and art but also to open a new horizon in their lives. This resource material is in keeping with the basic principle of Tagore’s educational philosophy of the natural development of the “whole child” and the love for nature. It is a multi-disciplinary curriculum material which is also in accordance with the expectations of the Ontario Curriculum. It is felt, this package could be used in the month of May in conjunction with Asian Heritage month. As a culminating event schools working on Tagore will be invited to present their work at the Ananda Mela (Tagore’s Fair) event on June 13, 2011. Schools will be also invited to visit the Fair as a field trip.

We are delighted to report that our curriculum has been endorsed by the Elementary Teachers of Toronto (ETT). Click here to see the letter from Martin Long, Preseident, ETT.

Ananda Mela (Tagore’s Fair) on Monday, June 13th 2011 from 9:30 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. at the North York Central Library Auditorium. (K-8)

    Thank-you for developing this package. This can be used in conjunction with the new World Music Curriculum – TDSB Music Dept – on South Asian Music. Contact the music department for more detail.

    This could be one of the best way to celebrate the 150th birth anniversary of Rabindranath Tagore,by educating the children about His thoughts,principles,music and love for nature as well as for mankind…..the phase which we are going through right now,His teachings and thoughts have become more relevant and this will help not only these kids to grow up but to us as well to become human being beyond the boundaries of nation,caste or religion and make this beautiful world really beautiful………i appreciate your effort and wish it to be a grand success……..

  3. Moustafa Makhmoud says:

    In today’s world we need Tagore’s humanitarian approach.Mankind is divided so much by different ideologies,religions ,greed and wrong perceptions that we dont see the things that unite us.We are human beings with similar aspirations.There is something great beyond our daily life.Tagore’s literature is my spiritual inspiration he makes me feel as a tiny part of this universe.

    I very much appreciate your effort to celebrate Tagore’s birthday.Please contact me if I could be of any help.
