Apeejay School, Rama Mandi, Hoshiarpur believes in letting the students experiment and discover the facts for themselves. Teachers use innovative methods in classrooms and let the children explore the unknown facts. The child is the most important and central component of the learning process. We believe in "Lighter Bags, Brighter Minds" and "Education with a Smile". Hence, our education programme is not only knowledge-oriented but also life-oriented. Keeping all this in mind, the curriculum is designed well-suited to the mental level of the students.

Pre-Primary

Thematic Curriculum for Classes Nursery to I

Education is learning for life but the first step of learning begins when the child enters the school and the journey of his all-around development commences. With the vigorous advancement in various fields, Education is also taking rapid strides. The latest innovation in the field of Education is Thematic Curriculum that helps children in becoming holistic learners.

Apeejay School, Rama Mandi, Jalandhar is religiously following the Thematic Curriculum for classes Nursery to I. Thematic approach involves grouping of activities based on students’ interests and facilitating the students to engage in authentic learning.

The focus of Thematic Curriculum is the development of the Cognitive, Affective and Psychomotor domains of learning at the Pre-Primary level. The idea of ‘natural unfolding through play’ helps students to creatively express their experiences which reflect their ideas, feelings and interests of value to them & their teachers.

Thematic approach has thus helped in building a strong base and foundation for Kindergarden and Class I students of our school, thereby aiding in preparing responsible citizens of tomorrow.

Teaching Learning Strategies

The path to literacy begins when the child discovers that learning is exciting and interesting. In Apeejay School, Rama Mandi, the teachers use a very simple approach. They act as a guide and a friend. Activity-based teaching dominates the teaching learning process over the traditional chalk and talk method. The school helps the children to develop thinking ability and the power of imagination to enquire "Why" & "How" of things around them.

Value-based Education

The goal of education is not merely to train the students for earning their livelihood, but to prepare them for life itself. So, our mission is to create a value-based curriculum where we can help our students develop their overall personality. Children are made aware that learning is not only for examination, but is a life-long phenomenon. The Principal acts as a counsellor to help and advise the teachers and parents when they face difficulties with the children. The teacher's personality completely impinges on the personality of the child. So, his/her role does not end anywhere. Exemplary behaviour of the teachers helps to instil desirable habits and paradigms in the minds of students for good behaviour.

Evaluation and Assessment

The children are assessed and evaluated on the basis of their performance in classrooms and in co-curricular activities throughout the year. The pre-primary section does not have formal examinations. Their respective teachers grade them according to their classroom and outdoor performance. The primary section writes exams but these are not the only criteria for evaluation and assessment. They are awarded grades and marks according to their performance in all the activities.
