In keeping with Shree Sahajanand Gurukul's promise of comprehensive and holistic education through a developmental approach, modern methodologies are employed to enable learning.
These methodologies are fused with traditional and modern system of learning. While the syllabus for each grade is structured, teachers have the autonomy and flexibility to design the curriculum.
The Curriculum Coordinator assists and supports teachers in the choice of materials and methodology. It is also the Coordinator's responsibility to shape and integrate online-offline learning, as well as the formal and informal curriculum.
Focus on teacher-centric instruction reduces students to passive recipients of knowledge. Traditional teaching is a one-way street, where teachers teach and students learn by rote. Hence, we create an environment in which students are systematically encouraged to continually seek their own learning. Our teachers play the role of "facilitators".
Students are assigned individual projects in their areas of specific intelligence to develop and hone their skills and respective intelligences.
Apart from regular learning in all disciplines, the School provides Computer Clubs for creative learning. Students are given the opportunity of acquiring digital fluency and are encouraged to go beyond accessing information. Computers are used to learn and develop multimedia skills like producing music, videos, animation and robotics. At SSGM, we provide a state-of-the-art media centre that enables students to fully discover their creative potential.
Given the rising demands and needs of a rapidly changing global community, knowledge and skills for responsible citizenship at the local, state, national and global level becomes important. Such learning inspires young people to reflect on, and become actively involved in making a better world. Students thus understand more clearly, what citizenship means, and feel ready to make significant contribution for humankind in a sustainable environment. With these clear objectives, SSGM will, through education, provide a basis for making the ideals of global citizenship a reality.
1. How do we create a balance between traditional and progressive schools of thought?
2. How do we ensure effective and efficient implementation of our objectives?
Our students will be global citizens, so we benchmark ourselves on international standards.
