We have a number of activities in which the students take an active part apart from studies. Some of these activities are:
Our school lays equal stress on both curricular and co-curricular activities as we believe in the overall personality development of a child. This very belief makes our school stand apart from the rest in the region.
The students are admitted to this club irrespective of their age. Different kinds of skits, short-plays, dramas are prepared by these children for all the festivals and important days in the school. They are told about different aspects of drama like costumes, props, dialogue delivery, script writing, correct posture, narration and stage-management. This is all done with the help of professional trainers who are specially called in for the very purpose. It is these students who mainly prepare short skits, dramas, plays mainly based on the folk tales and social issues and enact them on important days like Dussehera, Diwali, Teachers' Day etc.
Tae kwon do
To make our students self-reliant and bold we hold Tae kwon do classes every Wednesdays in which girls and boys take equal part. Every student is made aware that Tae kwon do is mainly for self-defence and should not be used in any other way. A demonstration of their skills is held after two months to enable them to showcase their talent.
It includes cooking, stitching, flower making and all such activities, which enables a person to become a successful homemaker.
Music and Dance
Music is an all-time favourite activity of the students. A school houses a big Music Room with all kinds of instruments. Children are given training in vocal and instrumental music. And as a result the school has its own choir. Professional singers and classical dancers are invited to the school to give lectures and classes to our young students.
Art and Craft
Apart from regular Art and Craft classes in the curriculum special emphasis is laid on this activity. This is mainly to bring out their hidden talent and creative self to the forefront. Children are taught a number of different things like painting, paper-mashing, sand painting, rock-painting, glass-painting, block-printing, sketching etc.
Assembly is a medium where the entire school can gather under one roof and talk on different topics. To us Assembly time is a special time when we pray, read news and deliver a 'Thought for the Day'. Every week the students take up different themes and deliver talks on them. Tiny tots say their rhymes and stories. This is special because every child gets an opportunity to come to the stage and speak in front of the entire school. This helps in building confidence and enables them to become good public speakers. One of the main features of Assembly is the Teacher's Talk where the teacher talks to the students on different topics.
In-Service Teacher Training
Apeejay School, Rama Mandi lays emphasis on a teacher's growth as well. Renowned educationists, scholars etc are invited to the school to give lectures and speeches to bring about qualitative growth in the teachers.
The parents and the teachers interested in the welfare of the students, sincerely believe that only through their united efforts, conditions can be created at home, school and community, conducive to the growth of the students, to make them responsible and responsive students.
