SCHOLASTIC AND CO- SCHOLASTIC AREAS:
The school believes in comprehensive teaching and evaluation. Hence, it not only restricts its teaching methodologies to the understanding of facts, principles, and concepts rather it also marks its stand in the domains of art, music, dance, theatre, and physical education. Through these activities self–confidence, cultural appreciation, and skills of teamwork and leadership qualities are enhanced.
Language is a medium that allows communication to happen. Teaching languages- the school has a challenging yet exciting role. It is our endeavor to develop the minds of the children in a manner that not just reading, writing, and speaking but they should be able to start thinking in a specific language.
Using a holistic approach, we teach listening, speaking, reading, and writing skills. Innovative methods are further integrated with well-structured lesson plans and patterns.
Social science is not conjuring up images of social workers rather it is a study of society and the relationship among individuals within the society. In the classroom, we encourage reading newspapers, discussing current national and international news as well as business news. Survey-related activities for Geography and Economics for collecting information are undertaken. Plays on historical events, skits, talk shows, etc. are done to engage students and motivate them to find a love for social science. Practical projects and experiments are undertaken for making the students understand a topic instead of just reading about it. Detailed conversations on fun and interesting places like planetariums, museums, zoos, wildlife sanctuaries, national parks, botanical gardens, etc. are done in order to inculcate critical thinking. Videos and documentaries of the events covered in their syllabus are also shown to the students.
If we will look around we will see that some of civilization's most prized and proud accomplishments are wholly reliant on Mathematics. Students are explained various concepts while connecting them to day-to-day life. Various creative class activities on geometry, models on trigonometry, and lab manual activities are conducted on a timely basis to inculcate the interest of the students.
Studying science here helps the kids to understand the world beyond the books. Students are given hands-on experience with the help of a wide array of activities and experiments held in the classes and the laboratories. Field trips, Educational Excursions, Space Club Exploration camps, hands-on activities, and experiments are spread throughout the year.
Computer Science - not computer literacy - underlies most of the innovations today. Technology is a blessing and Xavier’s has left no stone unturned to provide its students with the best possible technological support. The experience provided to the learners is maximized by the use of Audio-Visual presentations which makes learning a stimulating and fascinating experience. The fast broadband e-connectivity with Wi-Fi has facilitated learning in all areas.
Art Education :
The Arts Education at St. Xavier’s not only boosted the child’s creative thinking or heightens self-expression but also helps in developing the strength of mind and an ordered intellect. The streams covered by the term ‘Arts Education’ are not only visual arts but performing arts as well such as dance, theatre, and choir.
Health and Physical Education:
For the overall development of the students and for preparing them to enter the “Real World”, health and physical education is highly encouraged at St. Xavier’s.
Utilizing music and dance in academics helps children develop skills that are necessary for learning such as creativity, communication, critical thinking, and collaboration. Through the creative process, students are encouraged to use their imagination, collaborate with their peers to solve problems and discover multiple solutions to challenges.
At Xavier’s the scholastic domains are integrated with co-scholastic domains for better understanding
