At that time, sex education was an out of the box idea, but in today's scenario, it is a need; an urgent one! However, there are still taboos surrounding it. We are a country of over a billion, so obviously we are indulging in sex – a lot of it! But the hesitations kick in only when we have to talk about it. These hesitations are what we at Untaboo hope to tackle and thus we have embarked on a mission to break those taboos and make sex education acceptable and accessible to all. https://untaboo.in/

Role of an Educator
In this special edition of Joy Of Learning with the Educators at Billabong High International School Thane, we explore the values of Hope and Friendship, how the teachers work to build strong relationships, a better connection and understanding with students in the classroom by strengthening the bond of trust.  Joy Of Learning (JOL) explores twenty-two values that can be taught through schools. This program will inspire you by using examples of where the values are already being used by children and adults in schools and share practical tools to stimulate discussion and philosophical debate. It will also help people to take stock of their values and how they wish to lead their life.

Sandeep Dutt: The New Normal For Schools Post COVID19
School is the best learning space, an egalitarian ecosystem and very humane. We will need the support of all stakeholders - teachers, students, community and management - the pandemic has today virtually destroyed the social fabric. We keep talking of social distancing, this threatens the spirit of a school, as a good school works for the personal and social development of an individual. Relationships will never be the same again, and for us, at school, we have an arduous task ahead. #SchoolsCanChange
