Learning at APS(Ascent Public School) is child-centric and not bound by the tradition of rote or a set drill. The childs participation and experience is of paramount importance to us as educators. The school is driven to enable each student to realise his or her potential to the fullest and achieve his/her dream. This is what we exist for and this is what gives us supreme satisfaction.
Development Programme as an intrinsic part of the curriculum. Evaluation for us is not merely a tool to judge the capacity of a child to regurgitate by rote. Evaluation is continuous and comprehensive. Evaluation is used to understand the learning curve and capabilities of a class and optimise the study programme. It also includes areas such as life skills, conceptual development,social, emotional and behavioural development, etc
Learning is a process that cannot be enforced. Ever wonder how your child learnt to speak and comprehend the language that you speak at home.
- How he learnt a particular song or poem.
- How many times have you delighted over the fact that your child utters new vocabulary without you having ever taught him.
These are the answers that the emerging trends in pedagogy are trying to find out. One thing is clear.Learning comes naturally to a child. It need not be drilled or forced through rote. This is precisely what we are doing in our school. Learning is through joyful partnership between teachers and students. A journey of discovery through activities and observation.
Books do form a part of the repertoire of the curriculum. But equally important is the nature around us the trees and the gardens and the playground of the school.The curriculum at our schools assimilates the best from various sources and inspirations. A great emphasis is laid on thematic studies. Thematic learning, as a concept, can be best explained as the linkage and delivery of various subjects in a manner that demonstrates the practical application of learning as opposed to rote learning.
