The reality of how our children are growing up today is very different from what it used to be. The world has enormously changed. Bullying, fear, peer pressure, stress, sexual predators, classroom violence have all taken over our children, and they have more to deal with than our earlier generations ever did.
Today, the role of technology in education cannot be undermined. When dealing with the demanding and hectic lifestyles being experienced by our children today, the need of the hour is a type of communication that enthuses them while subtly encouraging and influencing them to make the right choices. So, using the technology to the advantage of the children, regular School Cinema sessions are held to ensure an in-depth understanding of problems faced by children of a particular age group.
educating and influencing thousands across the world.
Cinema is a set of researched film-based learning modules designed to introduce and reaffirm life skills, values and morals to children, parents and educators.
This is next in the process of making a child understand the world around him and more importantly, form a connection between the concepts learnt in the classroom and actually using them in the real life.
Project Approach employs an in-depth exploration of a real-world topic from a child’s environment which is used alongside systematic instruction.
Active learning leads them to produce high-quality work and to grow as individuals and collaborators. Children have a strong disposition to explore and discover. The Project Approach builds on natural curiosity, enabling children to interact, question, connect, problem-solve, communicate, reflect, and more. This kind of authentic learning extends beyond the classroom to each student’s home, community, nation, and the world. It essentially makes learning the stuff of real life and children active participants.
At Centre Point, it is not only the 3 R’s that are taught to the children. Equal emphasis is laid on the fourth R i.e. the relationships, as the success of any child in the future will depend on his ability to understand himself and the people around him.
Quality Circle Time (or QCT) is one of the practices which help the child develop these crucial skills of life.
At the heart of the Circle Time Model is a class meeting which involves the children sitting in a circle to look at issues relating to personal, social, moral and health education. The circle meetings aim to encourage the development of positive relationships, self-discipline, conflict resolution, assertive communication and democratic group processes alongside the skills of speaking, listening, observing, thinking and concentrating.
It is a time for children to gather together to share their personal feelings and ideas about anything that is significant to them. QCT shows children that their opinions matter, giving them real choices and allowing them to express their feelings enhances their self-esteem. Circle time gives all children the chance to experience some of the responsibilities and privileges of citizenship and provides a model for a more equal society. It is also about helping the individual members of the group to understand more about themselves and how they feel, act, react and respond to the world in which they find themselves. It attempts to foster mutual acceptance, support and care for other people, whether or not they might have an active relationship with them.
At Centre Point, the needs of students with different learning needs are catered to. We bring all students in the same classroom regardless of their strengths and weaknesses. The students with special needs spend most of their time with the mainstream students. The students occasionally leave the regular classroom to attend smaller, more intensive instructional sessions in a resource room.
We understand that children come to us from different cultures and backgrounds, different languages, different interests and ways of learning. A strong foundation can make all the difference in education and life. Remedial education helps children acquire age appropriate skills at their own pace. Remedial teachers in our school work with students who are lagging behind to bring them up to the minimum level of achievement. Through remedial teaching, children are exposed to teaching strategies that reach them as individual learners.
