Curricular Activities

The curriculum refers to the lessons and educational content to be taught to a learner in a school. In empirical terms, it may be regarded as the sum total of a planned set of educational experiences provided to a learner by a school. It encompasses general objectives of learning, competencies to be attained, courses of study, subject-wise learning outcomes and content, pedagogical practices and assessment guidelines. The curriculum of our school is the one provided by CBSE and it is based on National Curriculum Framework 2020 and seeks to provide opportunities for students to achieve excellence in learning. CBSE envisions the all-around development of students in consonance with the holistic approach to education and therefore, has done away with artificial boundary between the co-curricular domain and the curriculum doamin.

Secondary Curriculum provides students a broad and balanced understanding of subjects including languages, Mathematics, Science, and Social Science to enable students to communicate effectively, analyze information, make informed decisions, construct their world view in alignment with constitutional values and move ahead in the direction of becoming productive citizens. The recent focus of CBSE is on the development of 21st century skills in settings where each student feels independent, safe, and comfortable with their learning. Hence the curriculam is aligned in such a way that children feel more connected to it and employ their learning in real-life contexts. To achieve this aim, it is extremely important that children acquire adequate knowledge and skills in other core areas like Health and Physical Education, Life Skills, Values Education, Art Education, and Work Education.

The standard of education is carefully maintained to ensure academic excellence. The medium of instruction in the school is English. Apart from English, we also offer Tamil, Malayalam and Hindi. A student is expected to learn three languages up to class VIII. Besides scholastics, learner centered activities from an integral part of the school curriculum.


There is an increased awareness among the educators of the need to integrate what are called as 21st century skills in educational systems. There are three key 21st century skills; i.e., Learning skills, Literacy skills and life skills.

Learning skills include:

  • Critical Thinking
  • Communication
  • Creativity

Literacy skills include:

  • Information literacy
  • Media literacy
  • Technology literacy

Life skills include:

  • Flexibility
  • Productivity
  • Leadership
  • Self-awareness
  • Initiative

The need of the hour is that we focus on enhancing the skills required for a successful adult life in 21st Century. It is important that the students are able to think scientifically, mathematically or artistically to face the real-life challenges in an information and technology driven world and enhance their inherent potential.

The Assessment scheme will have an 80 marks component for Board examination (class X) and Annual Examination (class IX) in all subjects except compulsory subjects to be assessed internally along with a 20 marks component of Internal Assessment. Students have to secure 33 percent in total in each of these components.

As the Board is progressively allowing more space to learning outcome based assessment in place of text book driven assessment. Question papers of board examinations will have more questions based on real-life situations requiring students to apply, analyze, avaluate and synthesize information as per the stipulated outcomes. The core-competencies to be assessed in all questions, however, will be from the prescribed syllabus and text books recommended therein. This will eliminate predictability and rote learning to a large extent.


The Board Examination in each subject will cover entire syllabus of Class IX & X. Grades corresponding to the marks shall be on the basic of 9-point grading system. Grades will be awarded in each scholastic subject. For awarding the grades, the Board will put all the passed students in a rank order and will award the grades.


For the purpose of fostering competences in learners, the curriculum encompasses seven major learning areas, which are: Languages, Humanities, Mathematics, Sciences, Skill Subjects, General Studies amd Health and Physical Education. These areas are broadly divided into electives and compulsory areas as detailed below:

DISCIPLINE (Attendance, Sincerity, Behaviour, Values)

Discipline significantly impacts career shaping and helps build character, sincerity, self-control, perseverance, good behavior and values. The concept of discipline should not be confused with strict authoritarian environment and the students should be given freedom to share their doubts and ideas with teachers regarding class work. Constitutional and universal values should also be encouraged amongst students. Hygiene, sanitation, dedication, honesty, truthfulness, kindness, empathy respect for the environment, elders and all living things etc.are the values that our students must actively practice. Parents may also support schools in cultivating disciplined behavior in their wards. Class teacher will grade the students on a Five-point scale (A to E) keeping in view the overall attendance, sincerity, values and behavior of the students. Values Education Resource Book and Kit developed by CBSE may be used for inculcating values in students.
