Academic and Co-curricular pursuits are given equal weight age in our time table for our students. What is special about these classes is that none of these are an optional “extra” for our children. These activities have been integrated into our weekly schedule and are compulsory for all students. Apart from the regular activity classes students of classes III- XII have the option of joining the Activity class which is held after school hours till 3.45p.m. on Firday.
We have for our children :
Quizzing is second nature to the students of Shaw Public School. Inter-house quizzes, Audio-Visual quizzes and also a much-awaited Teacher’s quiz, keeps our staff and students alert and on their toes.
Inter-house elocution competitions are held regularly where students recite selected pieces from prose and poetry, guided and trained by their teachers. Elocution is also a compulsory activity on our time-table for all students for we feel it goes a long way in improving diction and building their confidence.
Dance is an essential part of our curriculum at Shaw Public School and we try to involve all our children in various dance movements to build fitness and stamina.
For students of Classes VI upwards creative dance movement is used in therapeutic ways as an alternative technique for healing, coping with stress and building ‘confidence’.
Chess has been introduced for our students of Classes III -V. We hope to build concentration and patience in our students – for them to be able to cope with their fast paced lives with no stress.
Educational Trips and Excursions
Visits to the Indian Museum, the Birla Institute of Science and Technology, the Birla Planetarium and other areas of interest in and around the city make learning go beyond the class-room and are encouraged in Shaw Public School.
Programmes for Social Awareness
Programmes for Social Awareness are very close to our heart here at Shaw Public School. We want our children to care for the under privileged and those in need. Sensitivity towards the environment is another area of focus. Regular workshops, community service programmes and visits to schools for pavement dwellers, old-age homes and orphanages are an essential part of our time-table.
With all this happening and more, Shaw Public School is a happy place to be in.
