In the life of an institution, the importance of team work and interdependence cannot be underestimated. The Visually Challenged Children have special needs and hence the teachers have multifaceted responsibilities and roles which are neither static nor stationary. This calls for a dynamic approach and a constant renewal of skills.
Devnar School has an experienced Principal Mrs. Lily Egbert who sets the pace for academic excellence in the school, and also about 45 teaching staff who give unstinted support to all curricular and co – curricular activities. Most of the teachers are specially trained to teach the Visually Challenged students and the parent-teachers bring a depth of understanding to the teaching process. Highly qualified educationists and professionals who do voluntary service enhance the learning experience of the students.
The administrative and non-teaching staff see to the efficient functioning of the institution. The resident wardens take care of the needs of the students and the supporting staff maintains the cleanliness of the premises. Every year two volunteers from U.K teach our students for a period of one year staying on the school premises. After completing one year, they go back to U.K., and pursue their university education. Besides these volunteers, we have had volunteers from Germany, Denmark, USA and Australia. The cultural exchange is beneficial for our students.
