Art & Craft

The human psyche looks for a way of expression. We at Orchids facilitate a healthy way of expressing ourselves through creative arts like art and craft, music, and dance. Education isn’t for information gathering but is for the union of mind, body, and soul. Art and craft is a skill development strategy where children will perform with their own hands, create pieces of art that are practical, utilitarian, and beautiful. The school provides early exposure to Art & Craft to develop fine motor skills in a child. It will encourage children to build up their self-esteem and self-discipline. Every year a new form of art is introduced to our children through one-day workshops. Sanji art, Warli art, clay modeling, mask making, paper crafts, and animation are few to name.

Music & Dance

All creative arts, art, and craft, music, dance, and karate are mandatory for our elementary children and we make it optional from grade 5. Children can choose between music and art and craft OR between Dance and karate. This ensures better practice hours and encourages children to concentrate on their specialized areas. Music and dance are an integral part of the fabric of our society. We teach different forms of dance and music. They enhance a child’s understanding of the subject and contribute significantly to intellectual development.

Karate

Self-defense and stamina are the superficially seen advantages of Karate. Hidden with its practice is the quality of self-esteem, self-reliance, concentration, and discipline in children. We have many children winning gold or silver medals in the competitions held in different organizations of Karate.

Spirit of TOPS

We believe in an all-around child, with self-esteem, self-reliance, and self-confidence intact and resilient, who is loyal, kind, courteous, thoughtful, honest, sincere, tolerant, and considerate. The individuality of the child is respected as well so each child is encouraged and treated fairly according to his range of abilities and his particular needs. We value ambition and hard work as vital human qualities and engage our pupils to learn them through activities. Skills of personal organization is of paramount importance to us so that child’s progress is not hindered through indiscipline. These qualities which we aspire to in children are reinforced in them by our school culture and through a balanced and managed environment that we provide through our curricular and co-curricular activities. We create an environment that will help each child realize his potential to achieve happiness and success. The Spirit of our school lies in the efforts we always make to do something new and innovative, by keeping an all-around development of children as our main goal. Filling potholes of Bogadi-Gaddige main road, swachchabharat abhiyan done in kumarabeedu village, Saksharatha Andolan in the same village, donating necessary commodities to an orphanage in Roopa Nagar and so on are some of the activities which have helped us in achieving our aim.

House System

School House System at Orchids plays a vital role in learning about working as a team. It involves students in wider extracurricular experiences. Challengers, Strikers, Explorers, and Rockers – these four houses of our school make sure to keep the competitive spirit high in all contests and bring out the best in each child. Your child will join one of the four school houses and will learn from older students who are given the responsibility to serve as House Captains. Students will receive house points as rewards for things such as good behavior, good work, and good attitude. Throughout the year, students receive points for individual and house competitions which contribute to the house points.

Pottery

Our Finger tips are in constant, direct communication with our brain through our body’s somatosensory system, a massive network of nerve endings and specialized touch receptors in the skin. So, activities such as playing in the sand or clay art or pottery can improve tactile sensitivity and be a vocational option at later stage of life.

Dramatics

Drama offers a window that can enhance a student’s ability to learn different subjects. No doubt it’s entertaining and aesthetic but can also develop numerous other skills and values in students. Social communication gets better with it as it provides space for expression. It opens a way to psychological wellbeing. Empathy, concentration, comprehension, problem solving, cooperation, externalization, nonverbal communication, decision making and so on. So, dramatics is included for all classes as a co-curricular activity.
