As children grow up they find many of their personal attributes flowering in favour of specific kinds of activity. You have no doubt met children with different skills, talents, interests and knowledge and often the first question asked is “Do they get to hone this ability or interest?” This is a very important question as the natural balance of a person’s inner being is greatly influenced by the exposure to that which aligns with it. We at Unicent believe that this can and must happen beyond the classroom – thinking, activity, and expression.
UNICENT believes in providing the varied exposure to the children, facilitate them, choose and affirm their aptitude or interest accordingly. In this process, we have a series of activities, of which a few become optional at High School level, while as part of routine at primary level.
Kinaesthetic Activities make a lot of impact on the Mental and Physical health of the children, which is catered through varied activities like, Yoga, Sports and Athletics, Skating/Karate, Dance etc. We also have tied up with LEAP START as part of Sports for Development Initiative of our school with regard to Grades up to VI.
Coming to enhancing the Creative aptitude of the children, there are classes allotted for activities like, Drawing and Painting, Crafts and Best out of Waste starting at primary level, while the Students of Grade 6 & above are encouraged in to various Work Education and Community Development activities as guided by CBSE, which include, Gardening, SSA Products Culinary etc.
