This curriculum design rests on two basic shifts from conventional academic processes. The Learning shall henceforth be Student-Led and Inquiry-Based.The teaching-learning time allocation to each of these groups and its sub-sets has been worked out keeping the end aim of achieving the learner profile at the conclusion of every year/grade.Skills & Competencies have come to occupy a center stage in the life of successful professionals. It is important that schools help learners in laying the foundation of such skills & competencies and build ways and methods to connect the conduct of curriculum with the fostering of skills & competencies. Arts education, covering a whole range of performing, visual and vocational arts would be an integral part of schools of future, and DPSG schools would lead the way.Health & fitness are a precondition for a rewarding and joyous life. Hence physical conditioning and sports would be an equally important part of the school curriculum.
Instead of the conventional transfer of information and knowledge, the new paradigm would put the students in a lead role in exploration, discovery, and constructing new meanings and applications of the knowledge. In this endeavor, they would be ably supported and guided by the teachers in building roadmaps and pathways together with a milestone as they journey along. Teachers will provide and advise on learning resources, benchmarking, assessments, reflections, assessment dialogues, and handholding to ensure that each one chooses his/her own destination and enjoys the journey as they move along.
SCHOOL ACADEMIC COUNCIL- A School Academic Council [SAC] have been constituted in every school, comprising of the following:
This curriculum design aims to build the learner profile as per the benchmarks defined by the DPSG School and foster Knowledge, Skills, Competencies and Attitudes, Disposition, Values, and Beliefs (ADVB) that will stand the learners in good stead as they enter life beyond school years. As the school prepares them for vocations, professions, or higher studies, they must also become responsible citizens and contribute to building a vibrant society.
