Learning has traditionally been considered to be an isolated activity that does not give enough opportunities to children to link classroom teaching to their real lives. This lack of a functional relationship between classroom learning and real-life experiences renders classroom learning incomplete. We at De Paul School Ukkunagaram follow the CISCE BOARD.
The CISCE curriculum has been designed so as to provide wider opportunities to children for meaningful learning. Inculcating essential human values and developing core life skills among children right from early classes is one of the major goals of the present curriculum. In the curriculum, such values and life skills have been integrated suitably within and across the subjects and presented in an infused manner so that these values and life skills could be imbibed as a way of life.
The curriculum is Theme based and child-centered and focuses on a wide range of learning experiences.
