Pre-Primary

We at GD Goenka strongly believe that “Childhood Education lays the foundation for a lifelong learning”. So, we as their facilitators create an environment that stimulates a child’s overall development. We nurture them to be multitaskers by conducting child oriented and child initiated activities.

The discovery of concepts, systems and basic techniques applied to natural, social and cultural immediacy of the student, including local and regional affairs are added to child’s wisdom in a playway method. Exposure is given to children through activities and workshops which helps them develop their overall personality. Involving them in Dance, Art and Craft and Music makes them aesthetically strong and creative in their own manner.


Primary

The education system involves an overall assessment of the child’s performance in the class which includes the written as well as oral skills. We offer an innovative curriculum-based program for children that focuses on promoting the cognitive, social, emotional, and physical development of each child.

The syllabus becomes more broad based at this level and gradually the young learner is exposed to a wide range of subjects and study material which is suitably graded in accordance with the CCE.. Apart from Maths, English, Hindi, E.V.S. and Computer Education subjects like General Knowledge are also taught. As early as class I, students learn to work on computers in the Computer Lab which has been especially equipped to meet the needs of the young learners.

From class V onwards, the school offers the students the choice to learn any one of the three languages- Sanskrit, German and French as Third Language. A plethora of choices are given to the students for their Work Experience classes ranging from pottery to public speaking, cookery to craft work. Last but not the least, in order to inculcate moral values and general awareness of the students, inter-active sessions are also held.

The teaching of all the subjects is done using the Smart boards.This makes learnig a joyful experience for students. Teachers integrate knowledge about subjects through a variety of active techniques suitable for the developmental stages of the children.


Middle

Academic year is divided into two terms:-

Term – I (100 marks: 1 half of the session) Consists of one Periodic Assessment (20 marks) and Half Yearly Exams i.e. Mid- Term Test (80 marks).

Term – II (100 marks: 2 half of the session) Consists of one Periodic Assessment (20 marks) and Yearly Examination (80 marks).

All components put together in PA carries a weightage of 20% towards the cumulative assessment in each term.

The overall assessment of a child constitutes both scholastic and co-scholastic areas.

Grading on Discipline will be done term-wise on a 3-point grading scale

  • – In the half-yearly (term 1) exams for all the classes from VI onwards will be based on syllabus covered till the exam time.
  • -Yearly Exam Written exam for 80 marks with syllabus coverage as below: Class VI: 10% of 1st term covering significant topics + entire syllabus of 2nd term Class VII: 20% of 1st term covering significant topics + entire syllabus of 2nd term Class VIII: 30% of 1st term covering significant topics + entire syllabus of 2nd term

We hope that with the cooperation and support of the parents, we shall be able to make a success of this system which is a path breaking initiative taken by C.B.S.E to aspire for holistic​ development of the students in a conducive environment.


Secondary

To increase the confidence in the students to start preparing for class X Board examination when they join the upper primary stage in class VI, the CBSE has decided to implement the uniform system of assessment, examination pattern and issue of report cards for classes VI to VIII also on the similar pattern. While keeping in view the provisions of Right to Education Act, 2009, the scheme for classes VI-VIII has been designed on Term Assessment basis with gradual increase in the learning assessment as the students move forward. This would prepare the students to cover the whole syllabus of the academic year and face the challenge of class X Board examination, and would thus, ensure the ‘quality of education’.

With restoration of class X Board examination, the CBSE will issue the report card for class X based on the Board examination with effect from Academic Year 2017-18. As the assessment structure and examination pattern for class IX will be similar to that of class X, the report card for class IX issued by the schools should also be similar to that of class X.
