GIIS PRIMARY PROGRAM
A well-defined curricula, an emphasis on value-added programmes and insistence on going beyond textbook learning.
UNIQUE LEARNING ENVIRONMENT
The Primary Programme at GIIS is a three-pronged programme designed to ensure all-round development of a child in the age group of 5 to 12 years. In that age, a child is in the accelerated mode of growth, both physically and mentally. While their brain is developed and can take a lot of information, we at GIIS ensure that learning is not a burden but a joyful experience.
HOLISTIC 9GEMS PEDAGOGY
Over and above academic excellence, our award-winning 9GEMS framework also promotes values like leadership, discipline, creativity, sportsmanship, leadership and respect – many based on universally admired teachings.
This enriched learning experience helps our students grow into refined, morally upright citizens of the world; and better prepares them for the myriad challenges in their adult lives.
Every student gets STEM kits (Science, Technology, Engineering & Maths) from school. The kit has experiments, that students need to use during the academic year. These are mapped to the concepts taught during the year. STEM equips students to understand key concepts in the subject for real-life use, by creating working models of these concepts.
An online tool for students to understand Mathematics and familiarise themselves with the joys of learning. It helps them hone their mathematical skills from an early age. The tool ensures that every student not just understands the topic in-depth but gets to practice it at length. It helps students overcome their fear of Maths and focus on self-learning.
Popularly known as DA, Detailed Assessments are online practice tests. Students get to appear for these tests in school as a part of extra practice. These online exercises help teachers understand every child’s strengths and weakness in that particular lesson or concept, and device methods to help students do better.
ACTIVITIES, PE & SPORTS
A primary student at GIIS gets the best of both worlds. He/She gets to experience the rigour of academics as well as get support to explore their sporting talents through extra-curricular activities like Physical Education and Gold Squad.
The programme ensures 40% of the school time is apportioned to physical activities and sports. In a week, students have Yoga, Physical Education, ECA and Gold Squad along with other cocurricular activities.
Sports is taken very seriously from a very young age. Students are encouraged to take up one Sport of their liking in their ECA. Talented and interested students are encouraged to join Gold Squad Programme which provides students with special coaches to train them to participate in competitions at inter-school and national levels. Basketball, Tennis, Soccer, Badminton and Cricket, are the 5 Sports under the Gold Squad Programme.
