The formative years of our children are very important, and the developmental changes have profound and lasting influence in a child’s future. Enriching experience in their school days, supports healthy development; cognitively, socially, and emotionally.
It’s important to understand that every child is different and learns at his or her own pace. In the formative years, we should encourage children to explore the power of curiosity, through fun methods, as they progress in their learning journey.
Research has shown that learning through storytelling can imbibe the learnings in a much more effective and sustainable manner. In today’s world, which is cluttered with information, stories and learning contents in the form of stories, can stay within us throughout our lives. Our founder Dada J. P. Vaswani emphasized a lot on learnings through real life stories and this methodology continues to be our foundation of learning at SVIS in the formative years and thereafter during the entire journey.
Stories also convey the culture, history, and values of our country, which is based on unity in diversity. We strongly believe and practice equality, regardless of the different culture, religious beliefs, social status, and other demographic differences of our students.
We believe that every child has the potential to excel in life. We encourage our children to know and leverage their strengths, which has much more substantial effect on success and well-being, rather than focusing on only correcting their weakness. We believe that every student can succeed in their own domain, and we offer a wide variety of co-curricular activities, to help students create amazing memories and build upon real-world skills to help them discover their passions.
The concept of learning is evolving. In a fast-paced world, where technology and modes of learning are changing consistently, it is important for us and our children to keep pace with the digital transformation and position ourselves as the leaders in this arena. We have been using technology as a part of the transformation journey for the past years, and our experience has supported scaling up this transformation during the COVID 19 pandemic; the digital transformation is no more an option but has become the lifeline. As in the past, we will continue to encourage and empower our students to adopt technology as an early bird and use the benefits with a positive approach.
Finally, I would like to conclude by emphasizing the fact that the golden years in our school journey is not only about the curriculum but about growing up as nice human beings, with Courage, Compassion and Character, to handle the challenges in the fast-progressing world. SVIS management and the team of teachers are committed to support and guide every child in this journey, and at every stage of their academic and professional quest.
