When you come right down to it – the real world is not just about academics. There is a world beyond classroom walls and textbooks, where invaluable learning takes place.
At our school, academics goals are balanced with a vibrant Enrichment Program that encompasses art, sport and life. We offer an array of beyond-the-classroom activities, which give our students opportunities to discover and display their talents, and cultivate a wide range of interests.
We have set apart one day of the week for this sole purpose. Saturday is Activity Day at Taruwin – come Saturday and there is a buzz in the air as students shut their books and busily involve themselves in a number of out-of-the-classroom pursuits like Foot ball, Hockey, Badminton, Volley ball, Yoga, Karate, Vocal Music, Western Dance, Carom and chess, among many others.
We don’t treat these initiatives as ‘extra curricular’ activities though. Instead, our enrichment programs co-habit happily with the academic syllabus as part of a single, integrated curriculum. In this way, we make sure that our students get to experience a truly well-rounded and happy school life.
The program spans the entire spectrum of human interests, from art to athletics and include:
- Art: Artistic activities, including music, theatre, dance, art, craft and pottery, not only build imagination and channel energy constructively, but also create a sense of emotional wellbeing.
- Sport: Invigorating physical sports like Foot ball, Hockey, Badminton, Volley ball and athletics are a vital part of The Taruwin portfolio of enrichment activities.
- Life: Each child at Taruwin is trained to be self-reliant, aware and equipped to face life with sessions in money management, effective studying, public-speaking, gardening and home management.
- Environment: We teach responsibility towards the environment in a hands-on manner by encouraging students to participate in a number of conservation projects.
- Community: Sensitivity to larger issues facing the world is actively fostered by inspiring students to involve themselves in community service.
Pursuing their interests Once a child reaches middle school (after five years of schooling), she or he can pick two activities of interest and pursue them for a whole term.
