At SVIS, every day is a celebration in itself, which has become a tradition at the school. It is this exercise which has been able to hold every child in a unique bond which teaches them to respect every faith, adore every tradition.

 

As a Principal I would like to share with you the review of this short period that I have been here.

 

ACADEMICS:

Breaking from the conventional methods of teaching, we believe in letting the child develop a sense of inquiry. This way they learn to analyze things which in turn enhance their thinking skills. The more they explore, the better their learning skills develop, resulting in the over all development of the child. Today’s children have more knowledge about gadgets than they have of toys. This makes us look beyond the conventional methods of chalk and board, to something more modern and tech savvy.

 

1. This is the most important domain of the school. We have tried to bring in minute detailing towards improvement in the teaching quality and learning experience in the classroom.

 

2. There has been extensive use of digital classroom for audio-visual teaching based on concepts.
