Co-Scholastic Area

  • Education envisages the comprehensive and holistic development of children and, hence, Co- scholastic activities are essential. CBSE recommends two major Co- scholastic activities viz., Art Education and Health and Physical Education in which the area of Work experience is subsumed. . The school will promote co-curricular activities for the holistic development of the students. These activities will be graded on a 5-point grading scale (A -C) for class VI-VIII and (A-E) for class IX and X.
  • a. Art Education
  • b. Health and Physical Education
  • (a) Art Education Art Education constitutes curricular activities for the development of the wholesome personality of the children, aesthetic sensibilities and respect for social values and cultural heritage. It encourages learners to develop creative expression, sharpens keen observation and develops a sense of organization and order. Students may select one form each from Visual Arts(drawing, painting, murals, collages, crafts, sculpture, etc.) and Performing Arts (dance, music, drama, puppetry and Folk Art forms etc.). Children’s participation in activities / competitions organized and conducted throughout the year form the basis of assessing the student by the Visual Art/Performing Art teacher
  • (b) Health and Physical Education (Sports/ Self-Defence /Yoga etc.)Health and Physical Education focuses on holistic development, both mental and physical, understanding the importance of physical fitness, health, wellbeing and the factors that contribute to them. Focus of this area of curriculum is on helping children develop a positive attitude and commitment to life long, healthy and active living and the capacity to live satisfying, productive lives with the help of health, hygiene and sanitation, work experience, indigenous sports, yoga, NCC, self-defense, fitness and lifestyle choices.
  • Parameters of Assessment While the students are engaged in the co-scholastic areas, the process is as important as the product. Hence, the assessment in these areas should take account of both aspects. The basis of assessment has been suggested below:
Co-scholastic Areas Product Process
Health     and Physical Education which includes Work Experience Overall fitness Participation, team-spirit, commitment and honest effort.
Art Education Expression, creativity                    and Aesthetic appeal Participation,cooperativeness, patience, systematic approach, neatness and cleanliness in work and workplace and devotion and honest effort in work
