KINDERGARTEN, THE FIRST STEP

Early year experiences play a very crucial role in the overall growth and development of every faculty of a child and hence should be nurtured. Cognitive, social, emotional and physical development is what we nurture at GATTU in our Kindergarten classes. Through carefully designed learning experiences the little souls are taken through a curriculum which aims at bringing out the uniqueness of every child at his own pace. The Shree Gattu Vidyalaya Kindergarten programme addresses the whole child emphasizing on every aspect of the personality in its right perspective. The aim is not only to help the child grow into a confident personality but also into an independent and creative mind.

THE PRIMARY YEARS

To make all this a reality not only our teachers design experiences that go beyond the learning of phonetics, mathematics, language arts, etc but also integrate music, dance and movement, drawing and drama very naturally into the curriculum.The Primary Years curriculum focusing on grades I to III takes the whole philosophy of the Kindergarten years forward through a programme of learning that builds on the observation and creative abilities of the learners. The introduction of the second language in grade I and II broadens up the horizons of learning. In the Grade IV to V, the learner begins to use his acquired skills in language and mathematics to take the learning process further. Shree Gattu Vidyalaya Primary Years focus on developing independent learning habits in our students by building their curiosity in their environment.

MIDDLE SCHOOL (GRADE VI TO VIII)

In the Middle School Years self-reliance in learning becomes an important focus. The curriculum incorporates social studies and science in addition to the subjects taught earlier. Attention is given to the requisite level in each subject by defining the attainment standards. Collaborative learning is a regular feature at this stage, as children learn to work together, as well as independently. Children learn to set goals and have long-term objectives. A rich and varied Co-Curriculum at Shree Gattu Vidyalaya provides each child an opportunity to discover and build a ‘spare time’ interest and engage in creative and constructive pursuits. Sports and hobbies play an important role in drawing out talent, building character and team spirit. School’s educational trips and community service initiatives gives further impetus to the learning experience. Responsible and upright behaviour is an expression of the school culture.

SECONDARY SCHOOL (GRADE IX & X)

The knowledge and skills gained during the Middle School Years equip students with a firm academic foundation to pursue a variety of educational options in the future. Throughout the curriculum, students are presented with opportunities to research, solve problems and come to their own conclusions and make decisions.

HIGHER SECONDARY SCHOOL (GRADE XI & XII)

Students in the Senior Secondary become more specialized in academics, and focus on their eventual career choices. Shree Gattu Vidyalaya offers Science subjects to equip students for higher education and the professional world as per the guidelines from the Gujarat Secondary / Higher Secondary Education Board of Secondary Education (GSEB), Gandhinagar.
