There are a lot of things that happen routinely around us. At school level students learn basic fundamentals but the goings on of the world are still a mystery. At Walnut, we try to take steps to bridge that gap.

Students of Std. 5 were taken to a construction site to see the different steps that go into making a home. They knew of this visit in advance, so they had a lot of questions ready. In addition to those, the site engineers explained the whole process and the components that were used. Students understood a lot of the nitty gritty and got a glimpse of what goes on in civil engineering and the construction industry.

They were excited to know what terms that they had heard so often actually meant. One example was the understanding of RCC. Not only do the children now know the long form, they know what cement is, what concrete is, how it is reinforced and what RCC is needed for. They got many such snippets of information.

The children were so thrilled with their newly acquired knowledge, that they quizzed their parents when they went back home too!

Communication and planning

As a parent, what do we expect from a school? We expect that our child learns various things and learns them well. Various things include core subjects, art, craft, sports, languages etc. In the busy schedule that everyone has these days, how can parents keep a tab on the progress of their child? How can they know what their child is supposed to do at home, if at all? It becomes very unfair for the parents to know the progress of their child at the end of every unit, after the unit test. There is precious little that can be done in remedial action after two to three months have gone by and that portion is not touched later on.
