Our Education

Our classes begin from UKG to Standard V. Inspired by our founder’s ideals, we draw together different methods of education focusing on hands-on, play-way and activity based learning. Team-work, cooperation and self-reliance are stressed on.

Children are inspired to develop curiosity and creativity in learning, moving beyond books to explore the world around them.  With airy classrooms, designed for free movement of children and stocked with educational aids, we believe in providing the best of education for children from all socio-economic backgrounds.

Our Facilities

  • Airy and well-ventilated classrooms with smart boards right from UKG onwards.
  • Computer halls with educational software
  • Well stocked libraries for our children, including books for visually challenged children.
  • Laboratories where teachers and children can jointly experiment in science practicals moving beyond books to exploring the world around them. Right from UKG onwards, science practicals are introduced in various ways.
  • Halls for art, dance, music and other craft based activities
  • Play area for the younger ones.

Health Care and our Little Doctor Project

Our in-house health centre, and nurse maintain basic records of the health of all our children. Our school visiting doctors pay special attention to our children and take care of our children’s needs.

Our Little  Doctor project trains our older children in first aid and taking temperature and weight.

 

Beyond Books: Art, Craft, Music, Dance, Theatre 

Our art, craft, dance, music, theatre, story-telling and puppet shows, bring out the best in our children’s creativity. Text-book and other learning systems are integrated with art, craft and other mediums of expression. Children participate in functions in and outside the school, participate in competitions and have won many prizes. On our annual Founder’s day our children’s choir and dance programs bring alive their talents, and give every child a chance to participate.

Inclusive Education

Since 1937, we have integrated challenged children into our mainstream school system. Challenged children are guided through school with our specially trained teachers, and are assisted by helpers. Special educational teaching aids for children are provided, along with in-house physiotherapy and speech therapy, for which experts visit our school for the same.

Moving Online

With the COVID-19 pandemic, we are moving our classes online. We hope to resume normal life soon, but until then, with the cooperation of our children, parents and teachers, we are making this new mode of learning into an interactive and creative experience.
