CO -CURRICULAR ACTIVITIES

Co-curricular activities are instrumental for drawing out the best potentialities of the child. It ensures that students are exposed to practical tasks, not just what is taught in the class. Extracurricular activities enrich the student’s personality as it includes voluntary involvement. An extracurricular activity helps a student with responsibility and time management.These activities help to improve the academic scores as well as social life. These activities are entirely instrumental in building self–esteem and leadership quality.
At Xavier’s, we believe in working with students to create future global citizens who are not only well educated, but also well-rounded.To help reach that goal, we divide all of our campuses into four houses. Students are placed into a house, and inter and intra-school competitions, allow them to compete against other houses in academics, performing arts, fine arts, literature, and sports. These school and house activities help students showcase their learning while also developing a sense of teamwork and pride in individual accomplishments.
“The arts are an essential element of education, just like reading writing, and arithmetic…music dance, painting, and theatre are all keys that unlock profound human understanding and accomplishment” (William Bennett, Former US Secretary of Education).

WORKSHOPS

A teacher is a learner before he/she is a teacher. The spirit of bettering oneself is what defines an educationist. In this regard, it is essential for teachers to upgrade themselves, attain a set of differential skills, and improve upon practiced strategies
A workshop is a great way for teachers to learn about a particular subject, new projects, and methods in order to enhance their knowledge and skills and implement the same for the betterment of students.
In order to upgrade and enhance the skills, workshops are held from time to time in St. Xavier’s International School. The highly knowledgeable resource persons are invited to help the teachers polish their skills. They emphasize on the need for Experiential Learning, a strategy to make learning more enjoyable for students. The sessions are very informative and interesting, and has helped the teachers in their compilation work and make the usage of best teaching methods.

ECO CLUB

Eco club in the school provides a unique opportunity that empowers pupils to lead change, raises environmental awareness, improves the school environment and also creates financial savings for schools. It engages the wider local community, links to the curriculum and helps in having a positive impact in their wider community.St. Xavier’s International School has initiated a small step to create and develop awareness and a sense of ecological environment among the students by introducing an Eco-club in the school . It is also a noble responsibility to inculcate the benefits of raising plantation, kitchen garden etc in a student’s mind and to take different biodiversity improvement measures through different activities of our eco-club.

READING CLUB

‘Books are the quietest and most constant of friends; they are the most accessible and wisest of counselors, and the most patient of teachers’. -Charles W. Elio-
Studies show that reading for pleasure makes a big difference to children’s educational performance. Likewise, evidence suggests that children who read for enjoyment every day not only perform better in reading tests than those who do not, but also develop a broader vocabulary, increased general knowledge and a better understanding of other cultures.
Book clubs are a great way to engage students with reading and help build a reading culture in the school. By sharing and reading books, children will develop fluency to read smoothly and with expression, learn new vocabulary words, enhance their writing and listening skills as well as be exposed to new ideas and concepts. At St.Xavier’s we want to develop every child’s passion for reading. For that we have introduced a Reading club in the school in which the children are encouraged to read different types of books to develop their reading skills, expand their knowledge and become inspired. For this a huge range of high quality books are made available to the students in our library . The students get the books issued in their library period and return the books after reading. They write a short review of the book in their notebooks along with the meanings of the difficult words they come across while reading. The children not only enjoy but also cultivate the habit of self-learning. It also helps in improving their concentration thereby helping them in their regular studies.

SPORTS

“Only he who can see the invisible can do the impossible.” – Frank L. Gaines
Several studies suggest playing sports develops a child’s self-confidence and self-esteem. A pat on the back, high-five from a teammate, or handshake after a match really boosts a child’s confidence. Words of praise and encouragement from the coach, parents and other players raise the self-esteem.
As a school, we are centred on inspiring achievement and personal fulfilment, building confidence and enabling all our students to thrive for success in every field of life.In doing this, we take every opportunity to celebrate the many successes of our students, regularly praising them for doing well and showing commitment to their chosen activities both within and outside of school.
Physical Education is an integral part of the total education system. It helps in the attainment of the ultimate aim of education i.e. the achievement of holistic development. Our approach to personalised learning includes not only a dynamic curriculum but a broad sports spectrum.
We encourage our students to take advantage of these opportunities to broaden their horizons and inspire them to achieve their goals and reach their full potential.
