Life at Akshara
Akshara has adopted an activity based experiential learning approach to stimulate the development of multiple intelligences. The program aims to bring out the inherent talent in each child through a wide range of curricular, co-curricular and extra-curricular (e.g. sports, performing arts) activities.
Akshara classrooms are digitally enabled with smart board, projector and computer to supplement the traditional classrooms teaching with audio-visual aids. Each child has secure cubby to keep his books so that all books need not be carried home and thus the school bag weight gets reduced.
The morning assembly is conducted in the school Amphitheatre. Co-curricular activities and inter house competition are also hosted here and help in removal of stage fear from students.
For development of good language skills, Akshara believes that children should develop the love for reading books from an early stage. For this at pre-primary level we have Reading corner in each class. At the primary level we have introduced a class library wherein a set of age appropriate books are issued from central library to each section. The school library is well equipped with books, digital resources and a large reading room.
In primary section, we have introduced the concept of a class library with a Reading corner.
