In order to foster a positive work culture, we hosted various fun, interesting and insightful workshops across the month of April. In fact, April was called the ‘Month of Masti’ and we made sure that every activity was geared to help BYJUites unwind and learn something new along the way
Read to know more about the activities and workshops that upped the fun quotient in April.
This year, we celebrated Health Day@BYJU’S with workshops on holistic wellness. The week unfolded with a variety of webinars and events focussing on physical, mental and social health. Every workshop was designed in a way that ensured all aspects of health were covered. The series included workshops such as ‘Managing Burnout and Ways to Combat It’, ‘The Art of Effective Communication’ and a Bhangda workshop.
We hosted an hour-long Art Therapy Workshop during which BYJUites engaged in different forms of art including the GUSH Art and journaling techniques. The workshop was hosted by Puroitree Majumdar, a clinical psychologist who specialises in individual therapeutic modalities such as CBT, Narrative Therapy, arts-based therapy, and mindfulness-based approaches. It was indeed a relaxing and stress-relieving session during which BYJUites were immersed in creating art, with soothing music playing in the background.
The theme for the month was masti and we ensured that our Li’l BYJUites had some fun as well. Li’l BYJUites, aged 3-7, joined us for a super engaging origami workshop during which they created beautiful paper crafts using simple techniques. It was nothing short of incredible to watch them create such wonderful DIY origami projects with beautiful smiles on their faces.
Most of us love animals! In order to create awareness about how to take care of the animals around us, we organized a session with Dr. Sooraj Raman, Senior Veterinarian at Besant Memorial Animal Dispensary. The session captured details on how to take care of pets, why adoption should be a preferred choice and the things to keep in mind before getting an animal at home. During the insightful session, BYJUites also got their queries about pet-care answered by the expert.
This month’s book club meeting was a ‘meet and greet’ session for avid book lovers! BYJUites shared their love for books, authors, and reading with great enthusiasm and even voted the book for the next month. It was an interactive session driven by BYJUites where they discussed all things books.
To help BYJUites beat the scorching heat, we hosted a workshop with Chef Gunjan Sharma, who taught us some easy recipes to make mocktails and salads. From Sangria to Green Goddess (in the mocktails department) and Peanut to Mexican salads, the hour-long session was nothing but a delight to watch.
