Sherwood High

“Creativity is Intelligence Having Fun”– Albert Einstein

Have you ever seen the look of wonder that crosses a young child’s face when they encountersomething new? Have you heard the squeals of surprise and long drawn enunciation of wow when brought face to face with something fascinating? These sounds of wonder and awe are part of every student’s day here at Sherwood High thanks to the over 82 school clubs that we have. From the fascinating worlds of literary characters, to machinations of mathematics, to discovering everyday Nature around us, to uncovering more of our heritage as well as getting creative with their hands – we have a series of hands-on activities across clubs that students can be a part of. A child with a hobby is a child who is happy.

All activities are age-appropriate. While for the lower grades, activities are geared towards creating awareness of possibilities, for the older classes activities are more hands-on, detailed with projects and fun events being organized each time. Clubs meet every week.

The goal, of course, is to ensure that students are exposed to a wide range of activities all through their academic life. Each of these activities encourages children to look beyond the obvious. We encourage our students to channel and nurture their inner creativity and bring it to the fore, providing a platform for every curious mind to find an answer. While the children may not see it right away, each of these activities in the clubs opens windows of their mind to a world that is just waiting to be discovered and interpreted in each of their own unique ways. All of this in a fun way that keeps them coming back for more.

Some of the broad categories of clubs at the school include

India’s heritage is as vast as it is beautiful. And the responsibility falls on each one of us to expose our children to its wonders. This is what we do through a series of activities in the Heritage Club that introduce children to the nuances of food and clothing, dance, folk stories and more from every nook and corner of the country.
