The School without bag

The School without bag

A school with no school bag?!
Does that mean our students don’t have any writing or homework? Do our students not study?

Quite the opposite, in fact. Our students are far ahead of students of other schools in terms of writing, reading, understanding and knowledge. Our parents say so too. Possible only at Walnut School!

How does it work?

All the planned worksheets and other material is put in each classroom for every period (having subject wise classrooms makes this possible). Students are only required to bring empty folders to school, (given by us), and take home what they write and work on each day. Worksheets are then filed (in files, given by us) at home, creating their very own notebook at home.

How does this help?

No school bags (just a folder to carry) mean that aisles between benches remain open allowing the teacher easy access to every student. So, being a first bencher or last bencher makes no difference at Walnut. The teacher walks around in every period, giving immediate feedback to students, regardless of where they sit.

Teachers have all presentations in digital formats and don’t have to write on the board, which allows them to face students and move around freely, unlike other schools.

No school bags also means that students really have no physical burden. It’s crazy how heavy school bags are getting these days and it’s scary to think of the back and posture problems that develop as an adult later because of this issue.
