| National policy on Education aims at child centered education that means giving primacy to children’s experiences, their voices and their active participation .The teacher’s role become a facilitator in constructing knowledge by the learners..In this situation,the school curriculam must have a holistic approach to learning and development that is able to see the interconnections and trancend divisions between physical and mental development and between individual development and interaction with others.
We,in Sree Narayana Guru Central School are introducing a new learning culture giving importance to learning instead of teaching .We have planned a method in which child learn and understand instead of remembering only to forgetting after examination .We understand that all children are naturally motivated to learn and are capable of learning .We also understand that children learn in a variety of ways –through experience,making and doing things,experimentation,reading,discussion,asking,listening,thinking and reflecting and expressing oneself in speech,movement or writing.
|The physical activity of moving,exploring and doing things on one’s own,with ones peers or in the company of adults,and using language to read,to express or ask,to listen and to interact –are the key process through which learning occurs.
|Education must provide the means and opportunities to enhance the child’s creative expression and capacity for aesthetic appreciation .The development of self esteem and ethics and the need to cultivate children’s creativity,must receive primacy. The school must enable children to find their voices,nurture their creativity- to do things,to ask questions and to pursue investigations,sharing and integrating their experiences with school –knowledge rather than their ability to reproduce text book knowledge.
The school should provide all facilities for development of various skills, art education,work education,physical education etc. with all these qualities developed,a child will be able to become responsible,productive and useful members of the society and they will learn to live in harmony.Sree Narayana Guru Central School,Ezhukone,Kollam imparts all these qualities to the young learners through a well thought annual plan .
Globalisation and the spread of market relations to every sphere of society have created an execessive competitive environment to the learners and their parents .The learning experience in SNGCS will certainly provide confidence to the learners to successfully face any challenges they may face in future.We ,the management and the academic faculty are fully committed to fulfill the parental aspirations.This commitment of this institution makes SNGCS unique among other educational institutions.
