Education beyond the Classroom

To excel in academics alone is insufficient as marks alone do not make a Man. It is crucial that a child is exposed to and has a scope for development in co-scholastic areas that can become a core to his personality. Along with cognitive development, the eco-system of a school should focus on other vital aspects of socio-emotional development, physical, aesthetic and spiritual development. Success is not only measured by academic results but by the ability to do any work that can impact our society by the ability to do pioneering thinking.

For instance, a child’s ability in Sports enables him to master the skill of the sport, enhance physical endurance, develop team spirit and the right attitude to handle success with modesty and equanimity. Similarly, participation in visual and performing arts enhances their aesthetic sensibilities along with building confidence on stage. Various clubs at school like literacy, environment, social responsibility, quiz, astronomy, theatre etc., enable the holistic development of the child.

A school that works towards building a holistic personality can be sure that when the students leave the portals of the school they will succeed, no matter where they are on the global platform.
