A new approach has been initiated at the pre-primary and primary levels.
Pre-Primary : Alphabets and numbers are taught using phonetics and songs in a competitive environment, using interactive multimedia techniques. Children are taken on outings, which help them to understand concepts and to express themselves better.
Primary : Teaching is tailored to the needs of the students by involving them in the learning process to maintain their interest. Some of these methods are as follows.
Dramatisation : Students are dressed up to enact various roles as per the demand of the lesson or chapter. The class that performs well is permitted to enact on stage while the other sections learn by watching them.
Role Play : Students dress up to depict various characters according to the subject matter.
Experimentation : Experience is the best form of learning. A very practical approach is undertaken by conducting simple experiments which go a long way in imprinting never-to-be-forgotten concepts on young minds.
Projects : Children are involved in the learning processs in a group or individual basis. They bring in various materials as needed and assemble them in class under the teacherâ€™s guidance, with the aim to help them understand a concept.
Yoga & Karate : Children begin their day with yoga.students are also taught karate.
Music & Dance : Children are taught vocal and instrumental music &. various dance forms are also taught to students.
Home activity : These are simple independent activities for children, which can be accomplished without any intervention by parents.
The results are encouraging, with children taking greater interest in their studies and therefore lower absenteeism. The children become more confident and their hidden talents are revealed. The burden of homework and exams is reduced to a large extent.
