SMS School follows the HSBC pattern . We believe that the play-centric model is the key in a young child’s learning. Spontaneous play is a natural way of learning for young children as it provides a wide range and real depth of learning in various development areas: physical, emotional, social and intellectual. We also emphasize on learning through spontaneous investigation which entails observation, experimentation and inquiry. Children are natural scientists. They devote endless amount of energy in learning all aspects of the culture they are born into- including language, stories, music and literature. They investigate with all their senses and emerging skills what people mean; using their discretion to judge when things are appropriate and when they are not; how to solve their problems; how to deal with their peers and adults etc. They try to make sense of common objects by prying into them, taking them apart and manipulating them in a variety of ways. Appropriate curriculum and teaching methods at the
SMS Convent School, include activities and encouragement even for kindergartners in these quests. They feature the importance of individual children’s feelings and emotions in group settings.
SMS Convent School has a curriculum that involves a variety and balance of activities . Children undertake projects in which they investigate a real event or object. In the course of such projects, the children strengthen literacy and numerical skills and also speaking and listening skills and acquire new words as they share their findings with others. In short our curriculum aims at the holistic development of our children catering to their academic, physical, emotional and spiritual needs.
