THREE DIMENSIONAL APPROACH TO EDUCATION

  • MAXIMIZE THE POTENTIALS OF OUR STUDENTS, TEACHERS AND SUPPORT STAFF
  • USE AND ENCOURAGE THE USE OF EMERGING TECHNOLOGIES
  • ALLOW A VIEW THAT EXTENDS OUT OF THE TEXTBOOK AND INTO REAL LIFE

The 3 dimensions of our educational process

Education begins when learning for the sake of learning comes to an end. As educators, we,  at  St. John’s Universal School, attach great  significance and importance to every step forward our children take. Over a period of thirty eight years, we have carefully watched transformations because they are the true manifestations of learning. We have measured our success in the triumphant expressions of our students as they successfully negotiate swirling currents on the river of life.We ask you to imagine a three dimensional figure that is tall enough to maximize the potentials of our students , teachers and support staff that is deep enough to use and encourage the use of emerging technologies that is wide enough to allow a view that extends out of the textbook and into real  life.

Maximise the potential of students, teachers and support staff

  • By helping them to understand that success is not simply an outcome of a process. It is the sum total of every small successful part of the entire process
  • Showing by example that communication, both internal and  external, is necessary for positive growth
  • Explaining that stress and its causes need to be understood before they are fought against
  • Underlining that time is finite and needs to be respected at all times, every time
  • Encouraging  the process of thought before action so that the results are in accordance with expectations
  • Passing on the faith that even the most aggravating issues can be resolved by words instead of fists
  • Allowing time and space for self-expression for each and every individual
  • Inculcating sharing and caring in the communities we live in so as to give back to society
  • Arming them with the necessary tools to compete honourably and complete a worthy life
  • Establishing  that the world is a much smaller place  today  wherein people and resources are in a constant state of motion
  • Emphasizing the role of sports in fostering team work and competitive spirit

Use and encourage the use of emerging technologies

  • All our classrooms are equipped with audiovisual aids like smart classroom computer systems
  • Our school has a state-of-the-art language lab which the children can use  to study and learn foreign languages
  • Educational cable system to centrally telecast  programmes
  • Computer centre with dedicated terminals  and  even a separate computer centre for the tiny tots

A view that extends out of the textbook and into real life

  • To complement and reinforce the education received in classrooms we regularly organize field trips
  • As an alternative to routine assessments we encourage project work, building on individual and team contributions.
  • The use of audio visuals as a consistent teaching technique allows teachers and trainers to bring the topics under study to life
  • As strong proponents of active learning our students are made to learn through experience rather than by memory.
