Holistic Development Working Process
” The conquest of learning is achieved through the knowledge of language.”
We (at GNMS), constantly strive to create an environment where children are exposed to high quality language in varying forms. We (at GNMS) have four languages in our school i.e. Hindi, English Sanskrit and Punjabi.
One of the most important language is English because it provides information that helps the readers to comprehend. It is the glue that holds English sentences together.
Activities like extempore, debates, speeches, story writing, essay writing, articles, ASL (assessment for speaking and learning) are conducted to encourage vocabulary development and communication skills in students.
We (at GNMS) also organise Public Speaking in morning assembly to enhance their confidence.
We at GNMS are very focused on the scientific development of the students. We try to develop the quality and the habit in the child to think and ask the question…why? Learning to think scientifically is a matter of acquiring problem-solving strategies for coordinating theory and evidence, mastering counterfactual reasoning distinguishing patterns of evidence that do and do not support a definitive conclusion and understanding the logic of experimental design These heuristics and skills are considered important targets for science and for education because they are assumed to be widely applicable and to reflect in child education. In an effective science program, a set of clear goals and expectations for students are used to guide the design, implementation, and assessment of all elements of the science program. We focus on the experiments, projects, and exhibitions related to science. We motivate students for scientific thinking and ask them to understand the reason for all the activities happening during the scientific concepts or any law related to science. We try to make the students learn the concept by experiments or activities.
Cognitive Development is the development of knowledge, skills, problem solving and dispositions, which helps children to think about and understand the world around them. Brain development is a part of cognitive development.
We, at G.N.M.S, are very much focused about students’ attention, short term memory, long term memory, logic & reasoning, auditory processing, visual processing, and processing speed. They are the skills the brain uses to think, learn, read, remember, pay attention, and solve problems.
Aesthetic Education is a way of regaining touch with the process of learning something new, of being introduced to a medium never known in a particular way before. It is the incorporation of the arts across the curriculum in a way that fosters a heightened awareness of and appreciation for all that touches our lives.
Education is not the filling of the pail but lighting of a fire. Guru Nanak Modern School is the place where intellectual, social, emotional, physical, spiritual and aesthetic development of the students are fostered to enhance their quality of life. We provide opportunities to express thoughts, ideas and feeling freely through art, music and drama which not only enable the children to express things creatively but also nurtures the development of other domains of learning . We promote students to discover new ways of looking at, listening to, moving in and speaking of their everyday experiences.
To bring about the holistic development of each child, GNMS gives ample opportunities to students for aesthetic expression through a wide range of experiences. At our school , we settle for student initiated activities that encompass everything possible under the sun. The range of activities offered include :
