‘Where Academic Excellence is Legacy’

Quoting from Erma Bombeck poem equating children to kites:

We spend years trying to get them off the ground. We run with them until we are breathless. They crash ……they hit the roof…..we patch, Comfort and assure them that someday they will fly. Finally they are airborne. They need more strings and we keep letting it out. They tug and with each twist of twine, there is sadness that goes with joy.

“The kite becomes more distant, and we know it won’t be long before that beautiful creature will snap the life line that binds us together and will soar….. Free and alone. Only then we know that we have done our job”.

We as educators play an important role in the lives of the students. We dedicate and inspire the students to aim high and achieve their goal successfully.

I deem it my honor and pleasure to acknowledge the fact that Army Public School R.K Puram strives to produce competent leaders by imparting academic excellence along with multidisciplinary skills in the growth of every student who walk into the portals of our school.

With a strategic planning and robust teaching methodology by our experienced faculty members we have performed excellently well in all fields.

Adhering strictly to the CBSE CCE curriculum we groom our students with right attitude, good soft skills, excellent communicative skills and experiential academic learning.

Following the CCE (Continuous Comprehensive Evaluation) we have four formative assessments and two summative assessments where the learners are encouraged to involve themselves in various class room teaching learning activities and a positive feedback on their performance is given enabling them to develop into holistic individuals Keeping our main focus areas i.e. communication skills & Technology Aided Learning in view, we impart innovative technology based learning in the classrooms.

In addition to the above we lay equal emphasis on developing in the learner’s over all personality by promoting Co-curricular activities and encouraging the students to take part in all the activities which not only inculcate good values but also make them into better humanistic citizens of this great country.

In the end I would like to conclude that, we aim at achieving competent individuals through transparent academics providing conductive atmosphere for the overall development of the students. God Bless.

Dear parents 

TOGETHER  WE CAN 
With the news of COVID 19 all around, our kids are just as scared as we are right now.  Our kids not only can hear everything that is going on around them, but they feel our constant tension and anxiety.  They have never experienced anything like this before. Although the idea of being off of school for weeks sounds awesome, they are probably picturing a fun time like summer break, not the reality of being trapped at home and not seeing their friends.
 
What kids need right now is to feel comforted and loved.  To feel like it’s all going to be ok. 
Make them do exercises to increase their stamina and give them healthy food and Vitamin C to build immunity. 
Play board games and watch movies.  
Start a book and read together as a family.  Engage them in household chores, educate them on conserving water and food and avoid wastage. Help them make your family tree and speak to their cousins and relatives.Do yoga together in the balcony. Have healthy lifestyle. 
 
Don’t worry about their studies we are engaging them with worksheets and assignments.Also online classes for senior students. 
When we are back in the classroom, we will take care of them .Teachers are experts at this!  Don’t pick fights with your kids .  Don’t scream at your kids for not following the schedule.  Don’t mandate 2 hours of learning time if they are resisting it.
 
If I can leave you with one thing, it’s this: at the end of all of this, your kid  should be Emotionally, mentally and physically strong to face the world which is more important than their academic skills.  And how they felt during this time will stay with them for long as a memory.
 
So keep that in mind, every single day to 
Stay safe, stay strong and stay blessed.
