Middle Academics


From Class V to class VIII the curriculum of all the academic subjects as well as a variety of co-curricular activities encourage creativity, aesthetics and adventure. All students study English, Hindi, Mathematics, Science (Physics, Chemistry and Biology), Social Studies (History, Civics and Geography) and an optional language (French, Malayalam, Arabic, Sanskrit). Co-curricular activities include Socially Useful & Productive Work (Art, Music, Dance, Band) Physical and Health Education and Computer Education.

 

The Middle School curriculum aims to help every child develop knowledge, skills and attributes for learning, life and work. We understand that learning is life-long and the curriculum includes the totality of experiences which are planned for children and young people through their education, wherever they are educated.

Students need opportunities for achievements both in the classroom and beyond, giving them a sense of satisfaction and building motivation, and confidence. Thus, the middle school curriculum is structured in such a way that the students acquire desired skills in different subject areas, develop individual skills, interests, and attitudes, learn to face different situations and opportunities in and out of the school. They also learn to apply their knowledge assimilated, work independently, collaboratively and harmoniously. The Middle School curriculum will help students to be successful learners, confident individuals, responsible citizens and effective contributors.

In this connection, eleven clubs - Literary, Hospitality, Yoga, HSE (Health, Safety and Environment), Photography, Adventure, Quiz, Music, Heritage, Charity, and Chiaroscuro - have been formed and activities are organised on every first Saturday of the month. Besides these clubs, on every second and fourth Saturdays of the month, Gavel Club meetings are organised to hone the students' skills in public speaking and leadership skills.

In Middle Section, children are provided education in line with the global educational trends. Middle Section is committed to the use of technology in learning and has an extensive programme of value-based education in which emphasis is laid on personal and social values.

Our students get ample opportunities to display their skills in various literary activities, art, music, dance programmes and competitions and cultural programmes. The Inter-Class competitions in recitations, story telling, elocutions, and quiz competitions in English and Hindi are a part of the curriculum. Exhibitions form an integral part of the Middle Section programme.

Character-building is the hallmark of the Students Prefectorial System.

The regular teaching is also supplemented with Educational Tours to Museums and Factories in Oman and also extended to India and abroad. Shastra Pratibha, Olympiads in Science and Mathematics are regularly conducted.

We conduct 'Parent-Orientation Programme and parent-teacher meetings to exchange views and to make parents and the community part of the whole educational process.

The Middle Section provides ample opportunities for its students to gain exposure to the latest teaching in Sciences and Languages.

From the academic year 2017 - 18, CBSE has changed the examination format. Accordingly, the same will be implemented in the middle section. The academic year is divided into two terms. The first term is between April and September and the second term is between October and March. There will be one mid-term test in May and the second mid-term test in January. The first term examination will be in September and the second term examination will be in March.
