We would like your child’s transition to our school to be as smooth and rewarding as possible and we work hard to create a firm partnership between home and school.
Children will be admitted to Ved Dhara Global School in April at the age of 3 years. Younger children of Nursery, Lower KG, and Upper KG will attend school only from 9.00 a.m. to 12.30 p.m.
The curriculum during these years is grounded in active learning. Through practical activities, purposeful play and talk, students develop an understanding of the world and the basic concepts they will need for later learning. Here the emphasis is on development of social skills, language skills, communication, physical coordination and development of grossand fine motor skills.
Students of classes I to X will attend school from 9:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. The curriculum for Stds. I to IV aims at developing children’s personal, social and emotional well-being; promotes positive attitudes and disposition towards their learning; provides opportunities to develop social skills as well as developing language and communication, Reading and Writing, Maths, Science, knowledge, and understanding of the world; and physical and creative development.
Children have many opportunities to express themselves through drawing, painting, collage and model making. They will work collaboratively with a partner or a group. They will learn and sing new songs and rhymes, participate in cultural displays and learn the nuances of speech and drama. This will instill a sense of confidence in each child at an early stage.
In Stds. 4, 5, 6 and 7 we start gearing for the CBSE curriculum. The school will follow the curriculum as defined by the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE). The School maintains high standards in all aspects of education. Although academics will be given top priority in the curriculum, the holistic development of the child will be focused on. Healthy competition is encouraged in a variety of activities held on an on-going basis throughout the year.
Besides sports, cultural activities and theatre, students of Stds. VIII, IX and X are prepared for the C.B.S.E. Examinations.
The school prepares students for the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) (Std. X & XII ).
The Second Language
Hindi will be the second language and will be taught from Std. I to Std. X. Indians who have lived overseas, and who have not studied Hindi till Class VI in their previous school, may be exempted from the study of Hindi, after permission to do so is received by the School from the C. B. S. E. Council, New Delhi. Such students may opt a foreign language as their second language.
The Third Language
Sanskrit will be taught as the third language from Std. V to Std. VIII. No student will be exempted from Sanskrit.
Progress and Promotion :
Assessment And Record Keeping
- Assessment is a continuous process that takes place in all areas of school life
- Through on-going assessment a complete picture of a student’s development is portrayed.
- Assessment can take many forms. We assess through discussion and observation as well as using more formal procedures such as testing.
- Formal testing allows us to track the progress of individual students and also helps us to identify the strengths and weaknesses across the school.
- There are periodic Unit Assessments and two Terminal Assessments including several units of study.
- Absence from one or more subjects involves the loss of grades for these subjects and excludes the student from prizes and awards. Students absent from an assessment should not expect to be re-assessed and those absent from an assessment without permission will be considered as having failed.
- Parents will receive information about the results of these assessments as part of the student’s Annual School Report.
Promotions are decided on the student’s progress throughout the year based on the periodic assessment and the terminal assessments.
