CBSE Curriculum: Delhi Public School International Excelling In Uganda

When businessman Sudhir Ruparelia acquired Delhi Public School in 2015 and turned it into Delhi Public School International, many Ugandans yearning to take their children to India to get an international education were saved the burden.

Sudhir who owns a string of investments in the education sector introduced in Uganda the India’s acclaimed Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE). The CBSE is a Board of Education for public and private schools, under the Union Government of India.

The CBSE is offered in more than 24 countries globally with over 17, 300 affiliated schools. The CBSE closely works with the National Council of Educational Research and Training (NCERT), an autonomous organization of the Government of India.

In Uganda, as required by law, the implementation of CBSE is regulated and monitored by the ministry of education and sports.

Delhi Public School International principal says that the curriculum they focus on complete development of students by involving them in both scholastic & co-scholastic activities as suggested by CBSE.

"I am sure this will help our children to realize, understand & explore their talents. In order to do this, the parents and the school authorities must work together to inculcate certain values in the students," he says.

The school has implemented the scheme of Continuous and Comprehensive Evaluation (C.C.E.) in all the classes. The CCE scheme envisages that every learner is to be evaluated over the entire period of learning schedule rather than a one-slot three hour examination at the end of a course of learning.

The C.B.S.E, through C.C.E. is aiming at a system of evaluation which does not just mean measurement of the level of learning outcomes but more so an approach for further improving the system.

The curriculum of all the academic subjects as well as a variety of co-curricular activities encourages creativity, aesthetics and adventure. Pre-primary - Classes Nursery to Prep, Primary - Classes I to V, Secondary - Classes VI to X and Senior Secondary - Classes XI & XII are involved all school activities.

All students study English, Hindi, Mathematics, EVS/Science (Physics, Chemistry and Biology), Social Studies (History, Civics and Geography) and an optional language (French).

Co-curricular activities include Socially Useful & Productive Work (Art, Music, Dance, Science Club, Eco Club, Astronomy Club, and Literary Club), Physical and Health Education and Computer Education.

"We hope that with the cooperation and support of the parents, we shall be able to make a success of this system which is a path-breaking initiative taken by the C.B.S.E. to aspire for holistic development of the students in a conducive environment."

The main objectives of CBSE are to provide stress free, child centered and holistic education, to collect and analyze feedback from stakeholders, to implement and supervise other agencies, to achieve academic excellence and to boost teacher - student relationships.

Other objectives are to achieve quality benchmarks in school education, to organize capacity building and empowerment programmes, to examine students and to raise the academic standards.
