Conforming to CBSE’s curriculum which focuses on Art Integrated Learning and skill-based assessments, we at Geethaanjali have devised student-centric learning tools that focus on developing the skills and abilities of children at each stage of their school education and adequately prepare them for the future.
In the Primary (Classes I – V) and Middle (Classes VI – VIII) we focus on developing new skills in
Languages: English is the first language, with Tamil and Hindi being optional second and third languages
Reading and writing: Students are encouraged to take initiative to complete reading assignments and specially designed writing assignments
Critical thinking and problem solving: Mental mathematics, science meets/exhibitions
Environmental and social awareness: From an early age children are encouraged to care for the environment and understand their responsibilities within a society.
Communication and technology: Students are introduced to a variety of hands-on exercises to use software like: Photoshop, Oracle, Html, MS Office, CC++ , PYTHON, etc.
Engage in healthy competition: Through literary activities like Spelling bee, Elocution, Seminars, Extempore, JAM, etc.
Such skills prepare them to take on the more intensive programmes in the Secondary (Classes IX – X) and Senior Secondary (Classes XI and XII) levels.
At the secondary and senior secondary levels, students undergo rigorous training in Mathematics , Science and Commerce (included at the senior secondary level). In addition, the curriculum is designed to ensure students from Middle school (VI and above) are well prepared in Science and Mathematics, thus their choice of appearing for entrance exams like IIT/JEE/NEET does not put an undue burden on the child. At these higher classes, we also sharpen and further develop skills such as:
Reading: Inculcating a habit of continuous learning and reading which will hopefully continue in the child’s future
Critical thinking and problem solving: Students at this level are encouraged to participate in various science competitions to work as a group and tackle difficult problems of the adult world
Environmental and social responsibilities: Even during the Secondary and Sr. Secondary classes students are required to participate in activities related to environmental and social improvement.
Communication and technology: Students are introduced to a variety of vocational subjects like Printing, DTP, CADD and Multimedia
Community and social involvement: Opportunities are raised for students to actively participate in and in many cases lead in community initiatives organized by the school. Here students will directly apply their academic knowledge to tackle real world social problems
