Shape Their Future: Senior School at Chitkara International School, Panchkula
Life at Junior School is ordinarily full of colours, but when the child enters Senior School, the scary world encompasses him, and his childhood tends to lose into a non-exciting and dark world of structured and threatened schooling which is not the case at Chitkara International School. Following the CBSE curriculum and keeping up with the National Education Policy 2020 (NEP) and Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), CIS’s Senior School is equally colourful and exciting, with a similar outlook expressed now a bigger one. This similar activity corner is now maintained by the students themselves without the teacher’s intervention, and the same cubbies are now turning into individualised lockers with a key that could be attached to their I-cards. A philosophy governs every floor in the senior school, which marks the learning outcomes that one comes across while passing through the corridors and walkways of the senior school. The slides mark the “Learning while Walking” approach, which the innovation is done at Chitkara International School for the past ten years while developing the school, which is its intellectual property right. Also, the senior school is well equipped with projectors, a touch screen with e-beams in all the classrooms, and digital content on the server mapped to the CBSE curriculum. Also, fully air-conditioned but well-monitored temperature classrooms with Wi-Fi facilities make the child comfortable in school, quenching his thirst to inquire and research.
Also, the Learning Studios (labs), the Indoor Play Station (Sports room), Megabytes & i-Class (computer labs) Karaoke Room, Music Factory, Dance Studio, Well Being Room and Lifestyle Education Room mark an enriching learning experience at the Senior School. Access to the auditorium, activity rooms, outside fields, and play courts is the hallmark of nurturing talent at the Senior School. Research is the Unique Sharing (not selling) Point (USP) at Chitkara International School, and the Senior School earnestly endorses it.
Thus, Senior School is more of a research centre, nurturing a child to hunt for excellence, than merely a centre for ROTE learning.
