The educational philosophy at The Shri Ram Universal School (TSUS) revolves around the belief in the individuality and uniqueness of each child. Our approach is child-centric, focusing on interactive and experiential learning. The teaching methodology combines the latest innovations in education with the most up-to-date findings in educational pedagogy.
Our goal is to help each child reach their fullest potential and equip them with the knowledge and skills to become effective participants and contributors in society. Through a range of activities and programs, we aim to support each child in achieving their personal best and continuously improving upon it..
At TSUS, we go beyond traditional learning methods and emphasize not only the "what" but also the "how" of learning. We have designed special programs that enhance the learning experience, including:
Wonder Time This activity develops the essential skill of observation, as children explore and interact with various materials, record their observations, make inferences, and draw conclusions.
Show ʻnʼ Tell Implemented in the elementary and lower primary grades, this strategy develops language, confidence, and presentation skills. It provides a platform for children to speak in a supportive and encouraging environment, fostering their ability to face an audience and deliver presentations.
DEAR (Drop Everything and Read) This reading program allocates 15 minutes in the timetable for nursery to grade VI, encouraging children to develop a love for books.
Research and Referral This program enhances research skills and encourages children to think creatively and solve problems. Children explore topics related to people, literature genres, performing arts, or visual art, gaining a comprehensive understanding of the subject matter.
Writersʻ Workshop Through this program, children learn the process of writing and book publishing. It empowers them to express their thoughts effectively by providing them with the necessary tools. The workshop fosters original and meaningful writing, emphasizing drafting and redrafting, and is integrated into the English curriculum for grades IV and V.
The Shri Reading Programme is a graded comprehensive reading programme from Nursery to Grade V, which aims at developing effective readers not by chance but by design. Closure activity is integral to this programme as it informs the teachers about the childʼs level of comprehension and gives the child an opportunity to express his/her views, think creatively, dramatise and make connections.
Jig Saw Learning This cooperative learning strategy enables children to create their own learning experience. It caters to individual learning styles and paces, capitalizing on each child's strengths while promoting collaboration. Jigsaw learning prepares learners for a flipped classroom environment.
ʼEQUBEʻ, This specially designed curriculum focuses on reflection and self-empowerment. EQUBE helps children envision their lives, nurturing sensitive, thoughtful, and caring individuals who proactively bring about change and make a positive impact. The program strengthens decision-making skills and emphasizes personal responsibility and accountability.
Through these distinctive initiatives, we strive to provide a holistic and enriching educational journey for every student at The Shri Ram Universal School.
