Education Beyond Classroom
At Northstar, we believe that learning takes place beyond the classroom and it is our role as educators to show this to our learners and help them understand how to keep learning throughout their lives. We have designed our curriculum in a way that education is not limited to the four walls of the classroom. At Northstar, we are all lifelong learners. Through various interventions such as Community Gatherings, Celebration of Learning, Field Trips etc. our learners spread their learning net far and wide. Community Gatherings at Northstar are for our learners to share their understanding , knowledge & skills beyond their domain with their peers and the community.
It not only fosters curiosity to self learn but also enables them to develop personal and academic bonds with the whole school community. Celebration of learning at Northstar serves as a self assessment tool for our learners to reflect on their own learning. It also serves as an opportunity to explore their creative pursuits in a safe environment. Field Trips connect our learners to the real world. It enables them to recognize the connections between what they learn within the walls of the classroom and the real world. Real-life experiences make learning deeper and have a far greater impact than textual content. Everything we teach has to have a specific purpose and once its real-life relevance is discussed, students tend to absorb it much faster.
Learning at Northstar– is hands-on, inquiry-based, fun, engaging and learner-centric. It is inspired by real-life lessons, current information, individual educational plans, academic goals and plans and woven into our curriculum.
