'You must be the change you wish to see in the world' M.K. Gandhi. The ultimate purpose of education is to bring out a good human being out of the system. For real development along with knowledge, Life Skill education, Value education, Physical education and experiential learning is essential. Creative skills need to be nurtured. Young children need a sound base of experiences that is essential for later learning, a strong sense of self-esteem, excitement & curiosity for learning. It is during this time the children develop higher order thinking skills such as problem solving, critical thinking, creative thinking, societal thinking, reflecting thinking etc. Our Curriculum is planned and developed to create such experiences for the child.
Carmel Convent provides a safe, nurturing environment to excel in academics. Taking advantage of contemporary methods, materials, and technology, our students pursue academic excellence while growing in faith and service to others. 'Belief Enhance Life' it is our strong belief that multi dimensional academic programmes free the students from conventional boundaries, allowing them to learn from multiple perspectives. Our teachers and school counsellor help direct students through the educational process by overseeing their academic lives, finding their strengths, challenging and supporting them in their decisions, and stimulating their interests. We strongly believe academically successful adolescents have higher self-esteem, lower levels of depression and anxiety, and are socially inclined. Self-esteem and self-confidence are critical factors in commitment to academic success.
Continuous and comprehensive evaluation is being followed in the assessment of the students. The teachers educate, monitor and guide the students to grasp the knowledge both within the curricular and co- curricular activities. Self study is encouraged through projects, tasks and assignments. Each student is accompanied and made sure she is in par with the other students in the class. Peers are appointed to assist the slow learners and it is ensured that every child has a success story to tell.
