At Saraswati Vidya Mandir, we believe that learning is an interactive process wherein each student has a different disposition towards knowledge and learning. Our student strength is small to allow the teachers to personalize the curriculum to a child to learn the way he or she enjoys. We treat each student as distinct individual with his/her own uniqueness, strengths, weaknesses and cultural diversity. We believe in creating an interactive and entertaining environment that stimulates the desire to be inquisitive and learn new skills and concepts. We are trusted by parents of multi-cultural Indian society. We practise student–centred approach enriched with activities that develop imagination, thinking and creativity. Personal care and attention are the key words in our teaching methodology.
We have the excellent teachers who stay with the students all throughout their learning process. Though the teaching environment is lively, the teachers are not lenient when it comes to the progress and development of the child. The tools and techniques used in Saraswati Vidya Mandir have been well researched and smoothens the learning process of students. Efforts are made to avoid putting stress on students rather complex lessons are broken down into simpler forms for better grasping of knowledge. We follow best school teaching practices that certainly develop a positive mindset towards acquiring knowledge. Further, the students have hands on experiences in different labs and activities which enhance their learning. We hold many events where students are encouraged to participate in such events and show-off their skills and knowledge.
At the pre- primary level the process of getting ready for formal learning is through a variety of activities. Through the initial activities like clay-moulding, cutting, pasting, crayoning, painting, folding and so on, we focus on developing the steadiness of the hand, the flexibility of the finger muscles and training on focusing eyes. Outdoor games, action songs and eurhythmic activities develop the larger muscles, vocabulary building, pronunciation, enunciation etc. Activities related to grouping, sorting, categorizing, finding the odd one out, sequencing, differentiating between the similar and different pictures, objects and people, develop the ability to reason and apply what is learnt in real life situations. Free hand drawing enhances self-esteem, expression and creativity.
From classes I to V, all these items are done through integrated activities in the scholastic areas. In order to take learning beyond the four walls of the class room, each class undertakes Field trips/Picnics/Sports etc., as per the requirements of the curriculum. From classes VI to X, children are initiated into the formal teaching-learning situations, maintaining a balance between the lecture method and activity- oriented methods. The school ensures a wide range of exposure to its students to make them learn various requisite skills pertaining to scholastic as well as co-scholastic domains, namely, Oral & Listening skills, Writing skills, Comprehension skills, Observation & Investigation, Exploration, Deductive and analytical, Correlation to real life environment, Analysis, Use of IT, Concept understanding, Problem solving, Critical thinking, Decision making, Data handling etc. These skills are fostered through various fun-filled activities, namely, Dialogue, Conversations, Speeches, Essays, Commentaries, Project assignments, Model & Charts, Group work, Research work, Worksheets, Seminar, Group discussion, Symposium, Survey, Written test, Quiz etc.
