The teaching learning process at this level is interactive and conscious effort is made to integrate subjects helping children to move from known to unknown. At PGGS, we make children understand concepts by providing an inquiry based and experiential mode of learning. Emphasis is placed on learning by asking questions, problem solving and through application. This is further reinforced through curriculum related trips, workshops, seminars and films, real life experiences and examples are embedded into the syllabi. We also encourage the culture of reading which also helps develop their cognitive and non-cognitive skills adequately.
A detailed curriculum framework, encompassing academic and co curricular activities has been in place in school. Performance rubrics are maintained over the years to monitor the child’s aptitude, and constantly fine tune learning plans created specifically for the child. Learning at PGGS is divided into three sections:
Inquiry based learning- At PGGS, we help students triggers curiosity – learning something new. Educators encourage students to question the things as they exist around them. They examine, question, research, collaborate & share their ideas and views.
- It involves following:
- 1. Students develop questions that they are ‘hungry’to answer.
- 2. They research the topic using time in class.
- 3. They present what they have learned.
- 4. They reflect on what went well and what didn’t.
Project based learning – We encourage project based learning in which students actively explore real-world problems and challenges and acquire a deeper knowledge (Questioning, inquiry and critical thinking).
At PGGS we encourage student to work together to solve problems & complete projects which help deepen their learning & collaborative skills. This also brings in a sense of mutiality & social awareness amongst them.
Apart from this general routine, there is always something happening at Paul George Global School, Inter-school Competitions, festival celebrations , Grandparents Day, Parents Day out, talks by eminent personalities and many more. Children are periodically taken out on visits and tours to build a connect with the real world
There are assigned days on which assignments are given to children to keep them abreast with what is being learnt at school. During weekends they write an essay in English and Hindi and one essay a month is graded only on the ideas expressed in the essay.
