The children meet every day for an assembly of 15 minutes in length. The assemblies, which are themed across the week, reflect on contemporary & value-oriented issues. The assemblies include a prayer, news reading, thought for the day and a small article of common interest.
Care, courtesy and respect for each other and property are gently but firmly demanded at Gyan Dham School. Our rules are not stringent but are based on a common sense approach to working and living together throughout the school day. Our approach is to praise children for being good and reward them with encouragement rather than to concentrate attention on rule breakers. However, parents are informed whenever problems with discipline or behaviour are encountered. Through positive encouragement and reinforcement, we successfully maintain the good standard of behavior for which Gyan Dham School is well known. Although, when repeated rule breakers, defiant, insulting students or parents misbehave, stern action is perforce taken so that wrong doing does not become precedence. The school is in such circumstances, forced to ask parents to withdraw their child in the larger interest of all children.
The school curriculum includes :
The school uniform must be meticulous. If the students are not in full and proper uniform, they will not be allowed to attend school.
Leave of Absence: No child will be permitted to leave school early for any reason unless there is a written request to this effect from the parent.
Late Comers: All pupils must reach the school at least five minutes before the start of everyday. It is the responsibility of the parents to ensure that their wards reach school in time. Frequent late comers will be sent back home.
All pupils must be present in the school on the opening day of the school after the vacation. If a pupil is absent for a week without any reason, his/her name will be struck off the roll.
The school is indemnified against any casualty or accident involving a student/students.
Snacks and Drinks
The school is proud to be a “Healthy School”. The school provides purified drinking water through Aqua Guard installed at vantage points. The school discourages junk food regularly, aerated drinks and road side food eaten by children.
Illness at School
The school ensures that every child’s health record is maintained. Parents are encouraged to inform the school if their ward suffers from some ailments or disease needing attention now and again. In emergency, children are send to the neighboring Rotary Hospital for treatment.
Medicines cannot be administered in school under any circumstances. A child who is unwell and on a course of medication should normally remain off school. If a child is well enough to attend, parents may visit school to administer the required dosage themselves. Inhalers can be brought to school, labeled with the child’s name and can be kept in a safe place organised by the class teacher.
Children must not bring toys, games, valuables or money into school as they are distracting. Any undesirable material in possession by students will be confiscated in his/her own interest.
School uniform is compulsory. Our pupils are expected to wear school uniform and we seek the support and co-operation of our parents at all times adhering to rules. We believe it makes a real difference to the tone and atmosphere of our school if our pupils are neatly and appropriately dressed. Our pupils are expected to wear full uniform whenever in school, or on school missions.
