Course of Study
To facilitate management & administration, the school is divided into three units:
Nursery and Junior School – Nursery to Class V
Middle School – Class VI to VIII
Secondary and Senior Secondary – Class IX-X and XI-XII
The day begins with informal conversation and exchanging of news. The well-structured Music programme is the pride of our Vidyalaya. Children acquire the rudimentary Swar Gyan and Taal Gyan which results in a grand finale in the form of the Nursery orchestra during the annual Nursery programme.
There are scores of indoor and outdoor activities fostering Language Skills, Motor Skills, Visual & Spatial Skills, Listening Skills, Working independently, Fostering, Social Skills and Group Play / Games.
Each day the children are given lunch in the school. A nutritious menu is planned with great care. Children are encouraged to eat a variety of items and are encouraged not to waste anything.
After a short siesta, they get refreshed for a session of story telling.
Housed in a separate building, the atmosphere in the primary annex is livelier, more relaxed and informal.The important features of SPV Primary School are:
- The medium of instruction is HINDI during the first 6 years- Nursery to Class IV
- English is taught as a compulsory subject from Class I.
- Besides academic courses, emphasis is laid on environmental & social studies, music, art, craft and physical fitness.
