Schools include Co-Curricular activities with the academic curriculum so that students develop skillsbeyond the knowledge of subjects. Co-Curricular activities also help improve teaching techniques atschool.Co-curricular activities are an essential part of school life and help in enhancing the learning process ofstudents at school. These are compulsory activities thatare important for every student toparticipate. Co-curricular is designed and balanced with the academic curriculum so that every studentgets to learn beyond subjects.Co-curricular activities are meant to bring social skills, intellectual skills, moral values, personalityprogress, and character appeal to students. It includes athletics, cultural events, Library activities,science lab activities, classroom activities, creative arts, meditation, etc.
Some of our co-curricular activities are:
Some simple sketching can be just as enjoyable as mixing paints and creating pottery pieces.The child reaps the benefits of having better attendance at school by regularly returning home after hours with drawings ready to hang on the ceiling or put on their study table.
Learning, thought, creativity, and intelligence don’t just come from the brain alone, but from theentire body. Movement combinations increase memory, order, and sequencing skills. Creatingdances also increases self-esteem which is so very important to learning. We already witness theneed for children to move throughout the day. Having experienced firsthand the positive effectsthat music and dance have on students’ development, We feel it is important for dance to beincluded in all elementary (and secondary) curricula.
This extracurricular activity is beneficial for several reasons. Not only does it teach childrenrhythm and musical skills, but also encourages them to coordinate eye and handmovements.
Aerobics is a form of exercise that combines strength training and stretching along with rhythmicmovement.The word “aerobic” is derived from the Greek words aero, meaning air, and bios, meaninglife. Aerobics helps improve the efficiency of oxygen use and cardiovascular activity of thebody. Thus, performing aerobics helps enhance oxygen circulation in the blood and improves hearthealth.Aerobic activities are helpful in many ways:
· Increase stamina, fitness, and strength
· Ward off viral illnesses
· Manage chronic conditions
· Keep arteries clear
· Strengthen the heart
Learning is not an isolated brain function. Every nerve & cell is a network contributing to our intelligence and learning capability. So we have included Brain Gym exercises in our program which increase concentration by increasing ‘Focus’ & ‘Centering’ ability. ‘Focus’ is the ability to coordinate the back and front areas of the brain. ‘Centering’ is the ability to coordinate the top and bottom areas of the brain. Every individual has a unique ‘PACE’ and Brain Gym exercises increase our ‘PACE’ i.e. it makes us more Positive, Active, Clear, and Energetic for learning.
This program of ours emphasizes the development of your child’s potential through activities in an all-inclusive, non-competitive environment. This helps them to learn how to listen, focus and stay on task. The idea of the gym in school is to encourage physical fitness.
When kids used to sit in the posture of yoga they automatically develop their concentrating ability and they learn how to be seated in one place which helps them at school. It increases the balance & quality of their muscles too. Through our yoga classes, we support their strength and joy together. They Sense both physically and mental recharged after the session.
Have you ever noticed the difference between those who sit in the audience and those who stay upon the stage and conduct events? It is as simple as it could be – the ones on stage were taught howto confront gatherings, speak in front of public, and anchor events when they were in school.Reasons why Public Speaking is crucial for Students at School level:
· Helps students form connections.
· Empowers them to organize and lead events.
· Boosts personality development
· Promotes expressions over repressions
Maths and magic have been partners for a long time. Children love to be surprisedi.e. to see magic and try to repeat in front of others without knowing the fact behind them. Merging maths with magic we are trying to create their interest in repetition or practice which is a key for excellent number work. Here we also use to do simple tricks with numbers like ‘think a number’, ‘magic square’ etc. which increase their curiosity. All these open gates for their brain to predict precisely ‘the outcomeof doing something. Possibilities for ‘mind reading’ and other ‘miraculous deeds’.
Counseling is designed to facilitate student achievement, improvestudent behavior andattendance, and help students develop socially.We have specially trained school counselors who primarily:
· Help students explore their abilities, strengths, interests, and talents as these traits relate tocareer awareness and development.
· Address the red flag for behavioral issues marked by teachers.
· Guide parents on the educational, personal, and social growth of students.
· Work with teachers and other educators to help students explore their potential and set realisticgoals for themselves.
· Consult with counselors for professional advice when a teacher cannot comprehend the situationand needs a finer view of the issue.
Kidacus is another name of ‘Abacus for Kids’ only. Abacus is a Latin word that has its origins in the Greek words abax or abakon (meaning “table” or “tablet”) which in turn, possibly originated from the Semitic word abq, meaning “sand”. The abacus is an instrument, a manual tool invented by the Chinese 2000 years ago. We offer training using the Japanese Soroban abacus, which has one upper row of beads and four lower rows. We have found the Soroban abacus particularly effective for teaching mathematical calculating skills to young children.
The abacus is a tool used by the Chinese since about 500 BC for the simplest of calculations: addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division, as well as fractions and square roots. A Chinese abacus is made up of a wood frame divided into two parts separated by a beam, with an upper deck of two rows of beads and a lower deck of five rows of beads. A series of vertical rods allows the wooden beads to slide freely. The abacus as we know it today did not appear in China until about 1200 A.D. Over time the abacus traveled to Japan and evolved into what it is called today: the soroban. A soroban is made up of a wooden frame divided into two parts separated by a beam, with an upper deck of one row of beads and a lower deck of four rows of beads
We have introduced this in our program to make them aware of the ease of calculation in early childhood. Studies have shown that the introduction of ‘Abacus to Kids’ i.e.kidacus on a child’s interim of interest will develop higher computing skills and development of the brain. In short, Kidacus make maths, a child’s play only.
