“Is your child reluctant to wake up for school in the morning?”
“Is he/she disinterested in attending classes?”
“Do you wonder why?”

It is widely understood that a child’s learning curve can be greatly influenced by their curriculum, pedagogy and the personalities of educators. However, it could also be argued that issues in the school environment may contribute to a lack of interest. A child spends/Children spend around 4-6 hours of his/their day at school – effectively making it their ‘home away from home’. Child development researchers have highlighted the importance of school infrastructure for student engagement, learning and overall health, both physical and mental. The results of a 2017 National Achievement Survey for grades III, V and VIII indicated that there may be an association between poor school infrastructure and low motivation when it comes to learning. Studies showed that students attending schools with lower standards had an inclination towards lower academic performance than those who had access to stimulating classrooms and facilities. Ultimately, it is clear that appropriate school infrastructure plays an important role in enabling students to grow holistically.

  • Green Spaces

Child wellbeing experts recommend making close connections with nature because exposure to greenery and natural elements stimulates a child’s five senses. It encourages them to think, experience, and act on self-formulated ideas. Considering the physical and mental well-being of students, we have incorporated sufficient green areas with oxygen-producing plants around our buildings where they can take a walk, indulge in their free play, or carry on with their musings.

  • Adequate Light & Ventilation

Proper sunlight and fresh air circulation inside a building can help maintain good health by reducing stress and preventing the spread of germs. Large glass windows & well-placed air ducts inside classrooms ensure the physical and mental wellness of children. They keep germs away and allow the entry of fresh air with natural light inside. They help maintain an optimal room temperature and offer breathtaking views of the outdoors.
