Extensive learning opportunities for your child at Nahar International School

As parents, you have more school choices available now than at any time in recent history. With growing awareness among parents, they too may want to consider asking questions about opportunities for involvement beyond the typical school day, such as parent volunteering and after school programs. Do parents volunteer in and outside the classroom? Is there an active PTA? How often do parents meet with their child’s teacher? How do teachers and the administration keep parents informed? Do students have opportunities to participate in extracurricular activities? How is participation encouraged or discouraged?

Take time to learn about the options, understand each school’s educational programs and philosophies, and seek insight into the unique culture and community. After all, you are not only finding the best match for your child to thrive and grow, you are looking for a school to call home for several years.

Schools like Nahar International encourage the free spirit in every curious mind to imbibe, absorb, contribute and create new ideas and lines of thinking. The vision of the school is to develop socially responsible global citizens in a safe, creative and educationally challenging environment that encourages collaboration and the achievement of individual excellence through self-discovery.

International Schooling in India at Kodaikanal International School

Today, parents have a plethora of Educational Boards to choose from and enroll their children into. It is no longer just the SSC (Secondary School Certificate) or ICSE (Indian Certificate of Secondary Education).
logoIn order to be considered as an actual International school, it is widely agreed that a school generally follows a national or an international curriculum different from that of the host country. Additionally, an emphasis is placed on International Education (with such programs as the IB or Cambridge) and global citizenship.

The international school market has experienced explosive growth over the past 10 years with the number of international schools more than doubling across the globe. This past year alone, 345 new schools were added to the network of thousands of international schools worldwide. ISC Research, a UK-based organization dedicated to analyzing, researching and tracking developments in the international school market, calculates that there are currently over 2.8 million students enrolled in international schools around the world.

Kodaikanal International School (KIS), an unique school with an extraordinary history and tradition spanning well over a hundred years! Their keen focus is on students, commitment to quality and dedication to continuous improvement empowering their students to handle whatever life may throw at them. Their greatest strength lies in their commitment to community – crafting together on a shared vision.

From the establishment in 1901 as an American residential school for the children of missionaries in South India, there were many milestones, including a number of ‘firsts’ – from when they became the first IB school, first International School in India (and the third in Asia) by adopting the International Baccalaureate Diploma program in 1976 among only nine other schools worldwide; to when they became the first school in India to have its own separate campus for camping and outdoor activities in 1994.

As their Principal, Corey Stixrud, once said: “Learning happens when we learn directly about a new culture…not from a textbook but from our roommate, or a new friend. Learning grows out of our successes and our failures. It happens when we study, work, talk, play, pray, share, reflect, argue…and when we make up. Granted, it doesn’t happen all the time, but a community that is imbued with the spirit of learning finds that learning is an ongoing continuous process.”

And this philosophy has paid off – their graduates, aside from growing into well-developed and well-adjusted world citizens, consistently achieve higher results than world averages in IB and SAT examinations – and 100% of KIS students who apply gain entry to colleges and universities worldwide. The KIS High School Diploma is US accredited and also allows KIS graduates direct entry to Indian universities.

Their Mission Statement: Kodaikanal International School is an autonomous residential school with a broad college-oriented curriculum, serving young people from a wide diversity of cultures. The School’s academic program is intentionally set within a community life based on the life and teaching of Jesus Christ and devoted to service in India and the whole human community.

Kodaikanal is one of the International Schools that are participating in Educationista – ‘Times Prestigious Schools Exhibition’ which is taking place across 8 states in 13 cities this year. Educationista Exhibitions is a sole platform for schools and parents to come together and understand schooling in a better way through educational seminars and queries that will be answered by topic Educationista from their field.

We look forward for parents to get educated on different aspects starting from the Boards to the new methodology, before they choose the right schools for their children.

Visit Kodaikanal School at Bombay Exhibition Centre, Goregaon on 11th-12th Nov 2017.

Fulfill your child’s Potentials at Pathways Schools!

Education in India is geared up towards imparting and testing knowledge at every level. “Give a person a fish and you feed him one day, teach him how to catch fishes and you feed him for a lifetime.” If you teach a student a skill, you enable him for a lifetime such are the thoughts of Pathway Schools.

PT team logo 2-02

Pathways School provides an education that enables the students to fulfill their potential – be it social, intellectual, academic, sporting or cultural. They do so not only because these potentials, fully developed, are useful, economically marketable or aesthetically rewarding but because they also want every single student of their school to find something that they are good at.

know-pathways-aravali-1
The extensive range of activities offered in the school enables all their students to find something that they can excel in. In this way they come to an appreciation of their worth as individuals and gain the self-esteem and self-confidence to which we aspire as the hallmark of our graduates.

They recognize that, in a rapidly changing world, few of their students will follow a single career for the whole of their adult lives. To cope with these career changes they will need flexibility of mind and the intellectual curiosity to continue learning well into adulthood.

They espouse a variety of teaching models in order to produce students who can think critically, synthesise and transform, experiment and create. In short, They aim to equip their students for the 21st Century. The school’s teaching methods are thus far removed from the didactic approaches traditional in many countries.

Pathways is much more than an orderly environment. The school’s disciplinary systems, from the day that students enter the school, aim to make them realise that they must all take the responsibility for their own actions. This realisation is fundamental to bringing their students to a preference for self-discipline over imposed discipline. In an increasingly dysfunctional world, they regard values such as responsibility, honesty, courage, loyalty, tolerance and respect for others as the building blocks of a stable society.

While Pathways draws much of its inspiration from international models, it also embraces the Indian perspective. They try to give their students not only an understanding of their own, or host country, but also a teaches them to value its people, cultural diversity and a willingness to do something for it.

They also seek to encourage amongst the students, an appreciation for India’s immense richness and variety of natural resources, as well as a commitment to their protection and preservation for future generations. Expeditions to more remote areas and community service programmes are intended to break down the isolation created by privilege, exposing their students to a reality outside their own experience, so that they may learn to cope with unexpected difficulties and mature in the process.

Respect for the environment grows out of respect for one’s own person. A comprehensive programme of talks and seminars on personal hygiene, sexuality, drugs and family relationships is held each year at appropriate levels in the school.

Vision: Pathways aims to build and nurture a community of thinking, compassionate world citizens, who are committed to living with responsibility, learning with enthusiasm and balancing a strong work ethos with a sense of play.

It is their mission to ensure that in a safe, tranquil, stimulating and intellectually challenging environment, all students shall have ample opportunity to:

Imbibe universal values;
Identify and fulfill academic, cultural, sporting and social potential through multiple paths to learning;
Acquire habits of curiosity, reflection, mental flexibility, independence and self-discipline;
Attain skills and attitudes for life in a rapidly changing world;
Develop a respect and concern towards the environment;
Maintain openness and respect in the face of racial, cultural, religious and linguistic diversity.

Pathways Group of Schools are a part of “Educationista -Times Prestigious Schools Exhibition“. Parents, students and School authorities are most welcome to visit the Schools at Jaipur on 9th-10th December 2017 at Birla Auditorium and Ranchi on 16th-17th December at Hotel BNR Chanakya.

The Cathedral Vidhya School, Lonavala at Times Prestigious Schools Exhibition

Educationista – An unique platform that connects schools with the parent community and guide/counsel the parents with detailed information on school education.

Educationista is committed to suggest parents with Quality Residential Schools that provide a school away from Home, nurturing children in their early days with values, culture and most importantly discipline.

Residential schools require students to take part in residential activities and live together throughout this journey. Even during a short period of time this can result in improvements in social abilities of each child that will be developed.

hhh
It is Teamwork, that makes students understand their peers, ask questions to make sense of their own understanding, help others, be more accepting of each other, provide reasons for their ideas and share knowledge. These skills later used in the classroom environment can enable them to increasingly focus on their own learning and learn from their peers as well as teachers.

Therefore, Residential Schools tries to process the improvement of the them through teamwork and communication, that will also help contribute towards meeting the curriculum through providing skills valuable for experiences later in life.

Positive social relationships between peers is acknowledged to contribute towards children’s overall well-being and grounding for later in life which can off course aid their learning journey. Having a positive relationship with a teacher also provides increased motivation for pupils to learn.

A strong community spirit is vital for a harmonious environment not only in school, but can also develop behavioural improvements in children at home. This is a result of them finding security, stability and confidence within their school community.

Community spirit also evokes a sense of belonging to each one of us.

All residential schools have a positive impact on social development which contributes towards classroom success and learning opportunities.

Myths About Boarding Schools!

Sending children to Boarding schools are a custom that many families in India tend to follow. However, actual knowledge about boarding school always tends to be covered and some parents tend to use it as a threat for children who are naughty or performing poorly academically.

Here is a list of common myths about boarding schools:

1. Boarding schools are only for naughty kids

angryboy_main-420x0

Most troubled children get threatened with being sent to boarding school. Boarding schools are actually populated with children whose parents have jobs that require them to move a lot or parents who feel like their children are mature enough to handle the rigours of boarding school. A boarding school is like any other school, except the students who tend to study there also live on the school premises itself.

2. Dormitories are like prisons

5_8_2013_08_51_11_lcp4eo3q9q52r4q7ls2d4u6ok0_4np7j3c0j

Most certainly not. Most dormitories are welcoming places populated with children and bed and their various Knick knacks. Yes, children do have study hours and have to go to sleep at a certain time but the only places that tend to be locked are the doors which lead into the dormitory.

3. Students in boarding school do not have fun

adorable-angry-kid-girl-sweet

Students in boarding school do have fun. And sometimes, they have more fun than day scholars do because there is no chance of them being alone, not when they stay with their friends and in some cases, even room with them. In fact, when day scholars and boarding school students study together, it is the day scholars who need to work harder to fit in to boarding school culture, sometimes even feeling left out because they do not have the opportunities that residential students do.

4. It’s all about studying and you won’t fit in

1f24ebb6142b6027818c4999635fc635

Boarding school children study just as much as the average day scholar does. In fact the children in a boarding school are no different from children in a normal school. The portrayal of boarding schools in media tends to be skewed. Before you join a boarding school, or want to enroll your child in one, visit the campus of the school. You will be surprised by how warm and welcoming the place is.

5. There is lot of homework and it is difficult

homework

While a boarding school will follow a certain curriculum, it does have a curriculum that extends beyond the one that traditional day schools follow. Boarding schools not only focus on studies, but on sports, extracurricular activities, holistic development etc. A student’s day is not only filled with classes, but also with sports, field trips, excursion etc. Students are given homework in accordance to the curriculum the school follows.

6. Diversity is rare at boarding schools

b32a69107a27a2aa625d7bf8b52e707a

Wrong. Boarding schools are melting pots of diversity. Of course, you will find that the majority of students might be from the same state or country the boarding school is situated in, but students come from far and wide to join boarding schools. It is not unusual to have several multinational students within a boarding school.

7. It will be hard to keep in touch with the family.

FamilyExaminer

Boarding school students and their families are privileged in that with the advances in communications, it’s much easier than ever to stay connected. Most of the boarding schools these days have a weeks’ vacation every three months so that the children do not get homesick.
