LIFE-SKILL BASED PROGRAMME
We provide young minds with the opportunities to develop their confidence, knowledge, self-esteem and life skills. In fact, we believe that ‘Life Skills’ are the building blocks that allow students to apply the knowledge they acquire in school to real-world problems and situations. With these skills, they develop sound judgment and good habits for long-term stability, wellness, and success. The life-skills development programme includes Development of Thinking Skills, Personality Enhancement and Enhancement of English Communication Skills.
UNIQUELY MAPPED CURRICULUM & ENGAGING TEACHING METHODS
The curriculum promotes a love for lifelong learning, confidence to tackle challenges, develop leadership qualities, remain curious and motivated. Most importantly, our students are at the centre of our educational process & system. The focus is on promoting the cognitive, moral and physical development of children; and encourage children to get actively involved in their own learning process.
At Oasis, students are evaluated through written tests, oral performance, observation, etc. Our evaluation process thinks beyond the traditional scoring patterns and covers all aspects of children’s development. As a matter of fact, this is an essential part of the teaching-learning process. Our team of researchers have developed the curriculum to promote and sustain the innate curiosity of children. Our students are also active participants in the learning process, which eventually inculcates higher-level critical thinking skills and promotes meaningful learning experiences. Furthermore, we give importance to the designing & implementation of teaching methods. Our teachers are trained to make learning an interesting and joyful experience for children. The children learn via interactive modules allowing their active participation in Group Discussions, Projects, Presentations, Quizzes, Games, Thinking Sessions, Role Plays, etc. These methods involve each student into the learning process thereby creating an environment where children come to school not because they have to, but because they want to.
We believe that an effective parent-teacher partnership can make a significant difference in a child’s education. Therefore, we have created a unique Parent Participation Programme – titled ‘SYNERGY’. The word SYNERGY literally means ‘coming together of two distinct influences for a common purpose’. So, parents are invited to attend parent participation programmes, parenting workshops, parents facilitator meets, etc. This approach gives parents an opportunity to strengthen their relationships with their children.
At SHEMFORD we believe, ‘Values are caught and not taught’, therefore, through SHEMFORD Sanskars, we focus on instilling the right values and virtues in our children right from the early years. Each month, children undertake various activities related to the ‘Values of the Month’ which are based on the core values of our society such as respect, honesty, cooperation, affection, sharing, etc.
