Teaching the mind, nurturing the body, enriching the heart

Seth Anandram Jaipuria SchoolEducation in the 21st century is on an upward curve of evolution. While academic excellence still remains its centerpiece, some schools are blazing a new trail by developing a curriculum and incorporating pedagogical practices that nurture the wholesome development of learners.

Gone are the days of didactic teaching and rote learning. The chalk-talk is passé. Experiential learning is the new buzzword. The teachers are transitioning from being knowledge providers to knowledge facilitators. Student-centric teaching in flipped classrooms has revamped the very learning experience for today’s students by identifying the learning needs and providing instruction through new-age pedagogical practices that aim at not just knowledge transfer and retention, but developing an in-depth understanding of a subject. Co-curricular and extra-curricular disciplines are gaining prominence. Sporting calibre, artistic brilliance, health awareness, social-emotional learning and personality development are increasingly complementing the sought-after academic rigour. The aim is to teach the mind, nurture the body and enrich the heart.

Rather than following the trends, the school is leading the way by delivering a new-age learning experience that translates into academic achievements, non-scholastic competencies, value-based upbringing, physical and emotional development, and a genuine curiosity for lifelong learning.
