The parents’ desire to have their children acquire the best education is increasingly getting high and the thirst to acquire knowledge, skills, values, beliefs, and habits is as high.
Schools, training centres together with parents are devising for the best educational methods to teach, train, tell stories, discussions and carry out directed research to enrich their students with the right knowledge and skills.
In Uganda, Delhi Public School International (DPSI), the only international school in Uganda teaching India’s acclaimed Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE), is positioning itself as the place to deliver such an educational package.
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.
According to DPSI, the CBSE Pathway helps students discover new abilities and a wider world, and gives them a lifelong love for learning so they can excel at school, university and work.
And as the academic year commences, DPSI is offering Ugandan parents to bring their children to attain a quality education under the CBSE curriculum. The school announced that the intake for the new academic year 2020 is now open.
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.
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.
