PRE PRIMARY

JR. KG. & SR. KG.

Kindergarten word was coined by German educator Friedrich Froebel Kinder in German means “children” and Garten means “garden”, thus kindergarten. A garden blooms with beautiful flowers when it is nurtured well.

At RANGOLI too we lay emphasis on identifying and nurturing the natural talent of its students and making learning a matter of sheer joy. We do this through E4 pedagogy.

  • Explain: Teachers use various methods to introduce and present the topic to the students.
  • Encouraging:Students are encouraged to experience the new learning experiences.
  • Exploring:Students are given various manipulations to explore and construct their learning.
  • Expressing: Students share their learning experienced in the above three stages. Expression can be in the written, verbal, and art form.

PRIMARY

Primary school years are a period of fast development and evolution. In this stage, the students begin to recognize their real energy and it is required to be channelized and directed towards the right path. It is a systematic process through which a student acquires knowledge, experience, skill, and sound attitude. It makes an individual civilized, refined, cultured, and educated. For a civilized and socialized society, education is the only means.

Keeping all these things in mind, we have developed the Four Petal Learning TM pedagogy which focuses on four pillars of holistic development i.e. Academics, Humanities, Physical Education & Sports, and Reasoning development to achieve our goal i.e. holistic development. The outcome of the Four Petal Learning Tm pedagogy is “FUTURE READY CITIZEN”.

4 Petals Pedagogy

ACADEMICS


RIS believes in the “Student centered Learning Approach” where students are at the centre of the learning process. The teacher’s primary role is to coach and facilitate student learning and overall comprehension of material. Student learning is measured through both formal and informal forms of assessment, including group projects, student portfolios and class participation. Teaching and assessment are connected; student learning is continuously measured during teacher instruction.

RIS follows assessment system as recommended by the CBSE. Focus is on shaping the young minds, think critically, imbibe the values and impart the same and how to work through problems. RIS follows these practices- practical learning , no rote learning; project based learning; activity based learning; better & judicious use of technology; learn with fun; educational visits; value based learning and exhibitions. These practices helps them to understand, enquire, think critically, to have scientific approach and to solve the problems on their own.

At RIS – Mehsana, we are committed to provide best of academic environment to our students. Our classrooms are equipped with interactive boards. We also strive to provide smart class environment to middle and secondary school. We have laboratory for languages, computer and science. Academics at RIS work towards evolving a learning process and environment, which empowers the future citizens to become global leaders in the emerging knowledge society.

PHYSICAL EDUCATION & SPORTS

Physical education and school sports can play an important role in the development of an active life-style, hence development and growth. We believe that physical education has to be built into the curriculum along with defined assessment methodology. Physical well being of a student is directly related to his or her performance. This role can be both positive and negative in influence and it is for this reason that it is vital that young people have a positive experience of physical education and school sports.

RIS implements best-in-class Physical Education & Sports programme. The programme is designed to offer the same rigours in sports and physical education as in academics. This ensures the children learn holistically through physical activity and sports in addition to helping children improve their health and fitness levels drastically.

All our physical education programs are holistic. The program allows student to interact together to a common goal and that is to win and excel physically. It brings out the competitive strength of students both of body and mind promoting sportsmanship. We have a defined assessment methodology.

We have separate playgrounds for pre-primary, primary and secondary school. We undertake following sports activity in the campus : Cricket, Table tennis, Football, Volleyball, Badminton, Chess, Skating, Martial Arts, Basketball, Athletics etc.

HUMANITIES


We refer to the humanities as the study of arts – the visual arts such as architecture, painting and sculpture; performing arts and literature. They are the branches of learning concerned with human thoughts, feelings and relations.

The teaching of the humanities is intended to make the students realize that the mere possession of knowledge is useless unless put to useful ends. Moreover, they would become aware that knowledge alone is meaningless unless it is accompanied by values, sentiments, priorities, insights, inter-relationships and other transcendent realities not subject to empirical proofs also form part of the person’s education. In the humanities, the students are exposed to these, leading to the
development of the whole person, which is the goal of RIS.

In addition to building a long lasting friendship, these activities provide opportunities of constant learning. Students in all the grades have the opportunity to participate in various activities each year. These include: Yoga, Dramatics, Craft, Art, Western Music, Indian Music, Indian Dance, Western Dance, Musical instrument
playing, Drawing etc.

LIFE SKILLS:

Functional life skills are skills that we acquire in order to live a better, more fulfilling life. They enable us to exist happily in our families, and in the societies in which we are born. The three major life skills areas are daily living, personal and social skills, and occupational skills. Daily living skills range from cooking and cleaning to managing a personal budget. They are the skills necessary for supporting a family and running a household. Personal and social skills help nurture the relationships that students will have outside of school. Occupational skills are focused on finding and keeping employment. The key element is in preparing students to eventually become responsible young adults.

SECONDARY

Students in this program are on the entrance of serious learning. Rangoli has built this program on a structured, student-centered and inquiry based foundation. Our students are prepared for a broader horizon. The curriculum content is based on the recommendations of Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE).  Rangoli has balanced the learning experience of its students between personalized touch provided by teachers and the use of technology and other tools to reinforce learning. Rangoli places a strong prominence on learning academic and practical skills. Rangoli stresses on understanding concepts rather than rote learning. Students are graded on 7/9 point grading scale system of Evaluation.
