Our Curriculum

We at Dr.PGV School, follow XSeed Curriculum, which has a “5 Step Teaching Method”.
What is XSeed Curriculum?

In XSEED curriculum, teachers begin a class by clearly stating the learning goal, ask children what they know already, demonstrate an experiment or conduct a group activity, let children speak before they do, ensure the application questions are done independently, fiercely believe in practice, assess daily, and support each child individually. Our Vision is “To Provide the Best Education and help our Students become Confident, Creative and Independent”


5 Step Process:

Xseed Curriculum follows a 5-Step Process:
  1. Aim

  5. Analysis
  1. Aim – Students are clear about what they are going to learn and the outcomes of every lesson.
  2. Action –To experience concepts and understand their use and application in real life, students are allowed to perform an action or an activity.
  3. Analysis – Reflect on the experience and ask probing questions to uncover and understand the concept further
  4. Application – Practice solving of real-world problems in the workbook to understand and build relevant skills
  5. Assessment – Get real-time feedback on conceptual understanding, applied thinking and English language fluency in order to improve performance
How does XSEED prepare children for competitive or external examinations?
Most competitive exams require children to know the concept well and are able to apply it.
With XSeed, the focus of teaching and learning is on analysis and application and not on rote memorization of the content.
These skills prepare the students to understand the “Concept” and “Apply” it which will build Confidence in them to be ready to face any competitive or external examinations.

Byju's Learning

The integration of technology in education enables the student to personalize the way students learn. It makes complex concepts visual and contextual, which will help students understand not just the "What" of learning it, but the "Why" and the "How”. It allows a combination of teachers and video lessons by the subject expers - explaining concepts by relating it to real life experiences. This improves understanding and retention of concepts for life.

Extra curriculur activities

Every school completely shuts all round development to Academic brilliance. In this school we do find a better balance between curriculum and extra curricular activities. In fact extra curricular excellence is our forte. Not only our Physical Education consists of routine stuff which is normally found every where but we teach Tai-Chi is what you call dancing meditation or moving meditation. This is becoming popular nowadays as the best relaxation techniques which a winner ought to practice.

Yoga

India's gift to the world which is defiantly Yoga training is rather being gifted to gifted and would - be - gifted children. All students begin their day with Yoga training being made rather compulsory daily. It is being given prime importance and carried out fourdays per week and forms out highlight of any school function.

Club Activities

We have various clubs. It is no wonder scene that one finds in banks, post office and railway stations where even educated degree holders find it difficult to fill in various forms like DD,.Chelan, reservation and cancellation of tickets, money order etc and they do fill with the help of concerned authorities. Well PGVians in future will be able to stand on their own legs on such occasions.

Our K.G Section came up with the idea of conducting Science fair every year.The toddlers rose to the occasion. The primary and secondary and higher secondary level student continued further from where these K.G.Children left. Of course they held their torch burn brightly.

The English department has taken pains to conduct English project through this school's students. Most of them are live projects which makes even the spectators to involve in the project as various questions are put to them there by making them active listeners which went well with the audience for they found it quite interesting.

Its adoption of the Ponnuthu amman temple and the upgradation of facilities and infrastructure at the temple for devotees bring out a spiritual dimension to its personal

Not stopping at the spiritual level, the school extends its relationships with its social environs by encouraging sporting activity at its infrastructure for its rural audience

It nurtures and grooms local talent available in and around Chinnathadagam by providing them infrastructure and opportunity for sports.
