:: School Profile
The first few years of a child’s life are the formative years. The training imparted and the value inculcated in the early years will stay throughout his life. We at St.Columbo Public School make an effort to do just the same. We make sure the child feels at home even when away from home.
We keep the child away from the fear of examinations. Upto the third standard there are no examinations. The child is assessed on a regular basis, based on his performance in the class. This is likely to continue till the eighth standard.
The main emphasis is laid on the learning of etiquette, correct pronunciation, developing excellent handwriting, and communication skills.
As the child graduates to a higher level stress is laid on general awareness, numerical, ability and I.T. skills. Reading habits are also developed and encouraged. The learning horizons are widened.
Our methodology is activity-oriented. We at St.Columbo Public School have a lot of activities and co-curricular activities.
Sports and co-curricular activities this forms an important part of the overall development of the child keeping in mind, that “All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy”, we at St.Columbo Public School give equal importance to healthy and intelligent recreational activities.
We have four houses FAITH, PEACE, TRUTH and WISDOM, headed by the house masters, house captains, vice-captains and house prefects.
The four houses undertake activities like, inter-house competitions in Games, Songs, Dances, Dramatics, General Knowledge quiz contests, public speaking fancy dress, art and craft competition.
Our school hosts a lot of inter-school competitions over the whole academic year.
Our Children are encouraged to participate in various competitions held by the other schools. This gives our students a good exposure and develops their leadership skills.
Inculcating leadership skills in our children is done through activities organized in the school itself like the system of a “House” with its prefects running the school by rotation. They are encouraged to speak on various topics, to speak the daily news and the thoughts.
To develop the all round personality of our students we train them to excel not only in academics and co-curricular activities but also in sports and other physical fitness activities as well. Because we believe that “Health is Wealth”.
