Social and emotional learning (SEL) is the process through which children understand and manage emotions, set and achieve positive goals, feel and show empathy for others, establish and maintain positive relationships, and make responsible decisions.
The SEL curriculum in our school consists of –
1. Life Skills Education Modules:
The life skills sessions are developed by trained and experienced professionals from the field of Education and Psychology to provide platforms for discussions with students at all levels from pre-school to class 10.
2. Global Responsiveness and Sensitivity Program (GRASP):
In GRASP sessions, educators provide students opportunities to learn about their environment, the impact of human behaviour, the advantages of diversity, and priorities set in the world agenda. Secondary section students have an opportunity to serve on the Student Council, and involve themselves in the planning and implementation of the Student PEACE Code towards building a positive school environment.
Senior students are provided important life experiences during camp, where they engage in adventure and inter-personal bonding activities under the professional supervision of experienced trainers.
3. Annual Events:
With the school’s 100% participation policy, every student from Kindergarten to A levels, participates in events that display their particular talents and aptitudes.
Kaleidoscope for the Kindergarten and Crescendo for the Primary and Secondary – students display their talents on the annual cultural day, a fine blend of skills and aesthetics learned through their art, craft, dance, drama and music courses.
Sports and Games:
Head-Over-Heels in Kindergarten and Momentum for Primary and Secondary – the Annual Sports Meet is the culmination of fine and gross motor skills learning, set in age appropriate activities, displays and competitive sports. Senior students can opt to be in the school’s sports teams for basketball, throw-ball, handball, football and kho-kho, & play at inter-school matches and sports meets. Indoor games such as chess, carrom, table-tennis and badminton are also encouraged in school.
The school annual exhibition Effervescence has students’ present to parents their skills with academic projects related to the different subjects they study, and the practical application of key concepts. Students prepare models and charts and demonstrate experiments which showcase their knowledge and skills. In the lower classes, the school organizes a fun-fair where parents can bring their children to enjoy games, rides, and edible treats. It is a great family outing and lots of fun.
4. Personal Awareness and Career Explorations (PACE):
The PACE programme provides access to professional online portals so that students can explore their interests and aptitudes. Students acquire the competencies and awareness required to develop a road-map to their further education and future career.
5. Enrichment activities
In keeping with the school’s belief that competitions and comparison are damaging to children at a young age, BCG introduces interschool competitions and examinations from the age of 11 years onwards. From class 5 onwards, students are offered a multitude of opportunities at the national and international level.
With trained teachers to guide their preparations, our students excel in these and their achievements are our pride.
