CLASSROOM WITHOUT WALLS
A classroom without walls is a term coined by Marshall McLuhan in the late 1950s. It advocates outdoor learning and the idea that the world should really be framed as an extension of the classroom. At CPGIS we believe that a good education is one where very few walls, if any, should exist. The classroom is merely a stepping stone, a way of framing, composing, and observing the world around us. We give these experiences to our learners which actually opens up their minds and their creativity, imagination and communication skills are expanded. Outdoor learning gives our learners exposure to larger concepts, also making them independent and confident.
Sports and Arts Programme is a Co-curricular program at CPGIS aimed at providing holistic development for all our learners. Every learner is free to choose a combination of sports and performing arts activities which gives maximum benefit in shaping their personality as the programme helps the learners to learn team work, discipline, creative thinking and focus.
Every learner has to choose at least three* of the following activities offered *(differs centre wise and grade wise)
- Speech and Drama
“Every child is a star”
At CPGIS, we give an opportunity to every child in the Primary section to display their innate talent by sharing their ‘MOST DELIGHTFUL MOMENTS’. They are allowed to sing, dance, play an instrument, do mime, mono acting, storytelling, poem recitation or even share their experiences about their delightful moments.
The learners are given designated few minutes to display their talent helping them build positive self-esteem. It is a platform for our learners to showcase their talent and creativity.
At CPGIS, aptitude is not only about academics but giving a platform to hone the unique gifts that every child has.
AIM FOR THE STARS
We believe in providing an enriching environment to our students to achieve their maximum potential. Continuous revision and doubt clearing sessions are conducted for grade 10 students to ensure that children can perform to their maximum potential.
DIY- Do It Yourself
The brain child of our respected Trustee, Mrs. Archana Goenka is an interesting and unique programme that instils the essential skills like self-reliance, confidence, resilience in students which are extremely essential in today’s competitive world. Today, one needs to be self-dependent so that they help themselves and are able to help others. A strong step towards Atmanirbhar Bharat!!!
CPGIS has always been sensitive towards students’ emotional needs. The presence of a counselor on campus does endorse the statement.
However, sometimes there is an undeniably acute need of a person who goes beyond parents, teachers, Counselor, friends and connects with students especially when they enter the adolescence stage; the time when they experience mental and physical change, when they are preparing to sit the Board Examination, and when suddenly the amount of expectation goes really high; this is the crucial time when they need someone who is more than a teacher, parent, friend; maybe a good blend of all these and which is satisfied by a Mentor, who is a positive guiding influence in one’s life.
A mentor, who can mould himself/herself into a role of a teacher, parent, friend, philosopher or a confidant as per the need of the situation, can prove to be a strong support system to the students at the crucial time of their first ever Board Examination, an important milestone in their lives. They are the words of motivation and support at the time of blues and gloom.
An initiative to shape young minds into matured citizens
Interact Club is a Rotary sponsored service club for young people aged 14-18 years.
It gives participants an opportunity to be a part of fun, meaningful service projects. Along the way, Interactors develop leadership skills while discovering the idea of Service Above Self.
At CPGIS, we encourage all our learners to be a part of this esteemed club which helps them become Globally Aware Citizens.
STEAM education which includes Robotics is an interdisciplinary division of mechanical / electrical engineering and computer science. It deals with the design, construction, operation, and application of robots. Our curriculum believes in MAKING and EXPLORING, thus creating more curiosity towards subjects of Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math (STEAM) by connecting them to real world applications. We provide an environment which fuels curious minds for innovation and research in the adaptation and creation of technology and its application.
SPECIAL DAYS AND EVENTS
Special days and events for our learners are planned and tailor made to help the young learners recapitulate and retain information provided through lessons in classroom.
A variety of special events form an important part of the curriculum as these are opportunities for the children to get involved and participate actively with other classmates too. The process of backend preparations, right up to execution is very exciting and a great amount of practical learning and application is happening simultaneously.
Children are encouraged towards taking their own decisions as well as owning the responsibility of the job done. They accept change and adjust and accommodate. They learn to work in teams.
STUDENT EXCHANGE PROGRAMME
Understanding and respecting varied cultures is the key to be a true global citizen, and the best way to understand culture of various countries is through the Student Exchange Programme. It not only helps students to understand the cultural background but also throws light on the social, emotional set up of the community of a particular country. Students get an exposure to the educational and employment opportunities available. At the same time, they understand the problems and issues faced by students in those countries, thereby enabling them to draw parallels between the countries and choosing the right option for their higher studies at the same time developing love and respect for our own culture.
Mental Health Initiative at CPGIS
Counseling forms an integral part of the thought process at CPGIS. We ensure that a counselor is available to each and every learner right from the pre-primary to high school. The toddlers learn to share their issues & problems at an early age, and this helps them to cope with adversities in later life. It also helps the teachers and parents detect any areas of learning which require additional support to bring the learners at par with their peers. Open channels of communication provide a safety net for the young minds that are unable to discriminate between the right and wrong. The knowledge, that there is someone to listen to you, can mean the difference between a suppressed and a flourishing personality. At CPGIS the services of a counselor are available not only to the students but the teachers and parents as well! Regular workshop on mental health and emotional awareness are conducted for students, teachers and parents, which are lauded for their effectiveness and practical value.
