curriculum  

The quest for excellence is not only in academics, but also in all aspects of school life. All students participate in a multi-dimensional curriculum.

Academics 

The Academic Programme provides intellectual stimulation and curiosity, rational thought and maturity of mind. Students are taught the value and equality of all subjects, and encouraged to pursue a mix of the sciences and arts. Regular visits to museums, and film shows supplement classroom teaching.

Pre-School Education

Springdales is a strong believer in the value of Pre-School education and has built up a very attractive Nursery Department that caters for children from age three to five years. The school has adopted its own curriculum and methodology, whereby children learn hrough the play way method, with no formal instruction or text books.

A variety of clubs operate within the school.

Computer Education

Computer education has made rapid strides and both the schools have impressive computer departments equipped with the best Pentium computers and computer peripherals. All students from class three upwards have computer 
education as an integral part of the curriculum. The department has a team of professionally qualified teaching staff, and is in the process of providing training to all its subject teachers to become computer literate, so as to introduce computer-aided learning in all subjects.

The emphasis is on SPORTS FOR ALL with the slogan "DO YOUR BEST- WINNING IS NOT EVERYTHING." Sports facilities include basketball, football, tennis, basketball, athletics, table tennis, and special coaching for swimming, cricket, skating, gymnastics, karate and taekwando. The school organises an Annual Sports Meet and Swimming meet, and regular mountaineering and trekking expeditions.

 

 

 

The Arts

The performing and visual arts develop the aesthetic senses and appreciation of our national and world heritage. Painting and Art History are offered upto the +2 level. Folk dancing and choral singing, drama and street plays are organised to provide opportunities for students to express their ideas, talent and creativity. No function is complete without the sets and d?r produced in the art rooms. Wall magazines on all sorts of subjects decorate the corridors of the school.



Socially Useful Productive Work


Socially useful productive work assures the learning of manual skills, appreciating the dignity of labour and the value of the working people, resulting in articles of utility and beauty. At the secondary level, the school offers a variety of choices like Interior Design, Batik, Tie and Dye, Theatre Craft, Sculpture, Photography, Commercial Art, Electronics and Tailoring as socially useful productive work. In the middle school activities vary from soap and candle making to gardening, bookbinding and repair of electrical gadgets.

Community Service and Social Work

Community service and social awareness programmes involve students' participation in linkages with the community. Literacy campaigns, and work in hospitals and slums, sensitise them to the life of the community around them, to the deprivations suffered by others, and the need to contribute to the building of a more egalitarian and socially just society, and for the eradication of illiteracy. Senior students visit hospitals, Institutes for Children with Special Needs and Institutes for the Blind. They become their amanuensis for their examinations and take them out on excursions. Students prepare plays on social issues, to bring about social consciousness, help as Teacher's 
aides in the Nursery classes, and help maintain the school premises. They also carry out various duties on a rota basis in the school, manning the reception, office and library. Students keep a record of their work, and are evaluated four times a year.

Value Education

Value Education does not form a separate dimension of the curriculum but is integrally interwoven into the entire fabric of the curriculum. Stress is always laid on developing a self disciplined approach to life and work; to have a discriminating mind, the courage to tread new paths, and to follow the dictates of one's own conscience even if it means being different.

Languages

Besides English, which is the medium of education, a variety of languages are taught, including Hindi, Sanskrit, Spanish, French, German and Russian.
