New measures are implemented
for the over all development of the child. We provide education at the
pre-primary stage through play and activity based programs. Besides
learning academic skills, the also learn how to play together, to
communicate with other and gain knowledge. The school has introduced the
following innovative methods of teaching to make learning more vibrant,
lively and child-oriented.
A Little Gym has been introduced for the physical and mental development
of the junior children of the school. Personality charts are made for
first term showing assessment of appearance, behaviour, mannerism and
conversation etc. Every week, a stamp (equivalent to a star) in the
shape of fish, teddy bear and flower is added ion the personality-chart.
Child’s photograph, date of birth, mother’s name etc is pasted and
written on the same. Recitation and writing skills are tested and
assessed by the teacher.

PHONETICS: To learn
the English language, it is necessary to understand alphabets with
phonetic sounds. Therefore stress is laid on Phonetics by teaching with
sounds so as to enable the students make spelling easier.
e.g. A says

able to spell the words correctly and pronounce them accurately.

the interest of the child.
To make the children realize the importance of clean environment, we
celebrate ‘Tree Plantation Day’ every year. Old papers and waste are
recycled to make paper bags in the recycling plant set up at the school
itself. To extend the campaign outside the four walls of the school, our
children discourage the use of polybags and take out awareness rallies
in the surrounding areas.
PUPPETS: To amuse the
children, the teacher uses the puppets to narrate a story, Children feel
fascinated when they see funny faces acting in front of them e.g. jungle
scene, a family scene and so on.

year which makes our senior citizens feel important and wanted. They
