Awards & Recognitions (CHVTL)
As the quote goes “All glory comes from daring to begin” which aptly applies to the amount of recognition and rewards the Happiness curriculum has been getting since its inception. The curriculum was praised by several national and international media outlets like Le Monde, NPR, CNN, etc. and was also featured in Harvard International Education Week last year and World Economic Forum. The curriculum was called a reformative step towards school education in India.
In the last few years, Dutch King Willem-Alexander and Queen Maxima and the former First Lady of the United States, Melania Trump visited the Happiness Classes and interacted with the students and teachers to understand the curriculum and its impact.
In 2021, Happiness Curriculum was also recognized by WISE Awards 2021 in partnership with Dream a Dream for Educational Innovative Project in Qatar.
“I spent time in a classroom and observed the happiness curriculum that is being followed by the school. It is very inspiring that the students begin each day by practicing mindfulness, by reading stories, listening to stories shared by other classmates and connecting with nature, I cannot think of a better way for all of us to start our day,”
- Melania Trump, Former First Lady US
