Beyond Curriculum

Sherwood High believes that there is more to a child’s academic life than just his books. From creative skills to sportsmanship to a host of life skills, Sherwood High believes in the holistic development of a child. Take a look at the world of opportunities that we open up for your child.

Sports

Whatever you want to do, do with full passion and work really hard towards it. Don’t look anywhere else– Virat Kohli, Cricketer

The beauty of a good game is that it teaches you so many things – hard work, teamwork, pride in victory and, sportsmanship in defeat. Each of these go a long way in helping a young child face the challenges of life. At Sherwood High we have a robust sports program that ensures not just physical development, but all-round ethical and mental growth as well.

The Arts

“Every Child is an Artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up”. – Pablo Picasso

And that the artist in a child never fades away is what we aim for here at Sherwood High. The encouragement and training given is to bring out hidden talents and ensure that children are always connected to their creative and imaginative sides.

The level of artwork taught in classes is on the basis of grades. Grades 5and above are given canvases and are taught to use acrylic paints. Grades 4 and below work with pencil shading, oil pastels and water colours.

School Assemblies

Another creative outlet for children are the assemblies that are conducted not just the traditional way, with the entire school, but grade and section-wise as well.A theme is chosen and presented to the children of a class. They are given designated days when they will have to put together an entire assembly, for the students of other sections of their grade. The performances can be skits, songs and other relevant acts. The key is that the whole class is involved and the work appreciated by their peers. The themes are assigned at the beginning of the year, as are performance days for each grade.

Trips

Co Curricular Activities supplements the academic curriculum to bring variety to the classroom. Much social development takes place during these trips and encourages social-emotional development as well as academic learning. We want our students to become courageous and to experience things first hand. A child’s heart seeks knowledge and yearns for fun as well as learning through experience of new and exciting things, places and people.

An educational trip is an off campus learning activity that brings excitement and adventure to learning. To this end, we take advantage of our local and regional environment by visiting historic sites as well as engaging in team-building exercises. The school gladly endures the expense and disruption of normal school routine.  The objective behind field trips is to help students understand more about the concepts taught in classrooms and recollect what they have learnt about our culture and traditions through their books.
