Message from Ms.Renu Uberoi, Principal

 

Dear Parents,

Greetings from the All Saints family!

Since the time I have taken over as Principal of All Saints International School, I have noticed that the school draws its unique strength from the fact that the committed management, faculty and parents work dedicatedly together to fulfil the noblest purpose of education i.e to enlighten young minds with the flame of knowledge, and at the same time, infuse them with a respect and love for learning. Our dear students are showing fine promise of becoming globally integrated and responsive citizens who are being empowered with the skills for the next century in our school. Yet, they remain, well-endowed and grounded with their school's intuitive ethos and fine ethics as they prepare to affect and impact the society and community they reach out to as adults at a future date.

I am committed to supporting the cardinal principles of education i.e. Literacy, School Development, Students' Academic Graph, Community Partnerships, Health and Wellness and Enrichment of the faculty. In academics, I will be taking our School's Experiential Learning Programme to the next level, and ensuring that the students' comprehension of facts and content is fuelled and engined through observations, self-discovery, experiments and analytical skills.

I wish to prepare our students to participate and excel in external and international competitions. At the same time, I will be ensuring that ourstudents take an active part in inter-school sports competitions at zonal andstate level, thereby securing their holistic development. Empowering students by giving them many more opportunities to lead and be a role model through the Student's Council and other forums as well as empowering faculty are also the important areas in which I will be concentrating.

You have been our constant support in every venture and endeavour. I look forward to enjoying closer ties with you and working together to take our school to fresh heights of glory and success.

Regards,
Ms. Renu Uberoi

Infrastructure / Classroom Management

Classroom Management

 

Educational researches have shown that teachers' actions in their classrooms have twice the impact on student achievement as do school policies regarding curriculum, assessment, staff congeniality, and parental involvement. The quality of teacher-student relationships is the keystone for all other aspects of classroom management. At All Saints, the intuitive class management techniques ensure that each classroom is the 'favourite haunt' of the class second to none, not even the playground.

  1. Rotational Seating arrangement
  2. The students at All Saints feel a strong sense of attachment and belongingness to their class, classroom and class teacher. It is truly their 'home away from home.' This is because the classroom is owned by them in the best possible way. They are responsible for the furniture and boards.

    • There are neither 'backbenchers' nor 'front-ups' in All Saints International School.
    • Students are seated according to a rotational system which makes each one sit in the front as well at the back.
    • No child is made to feel sidelined or ignored by being made to sit in the corner or back seat.

  3. Monitoring
  4. The key to this principle is that best teaching takes place when the teacher is on her feet; not on the seat.

    • At All Saints, each and every teacher makes frequent rounds while the students are working to check on their progress.
    • The teacher passes through the whole room about two minutes after the students have started a written assignment. She checks that each student has started and provides individualized instruction as needed.
    • The students who are not yet quite on task quickly 'get going' while the teacher quietly yet firmly reminds the distracted learners to focus.

  5. Modeling
  6. At All Saints International school, we believe that Values are caught, not taught.

    • Teachers are role models for their students and by being courteous, prompt, enthusiastic, in control, patient and organized they provide live examples for their students to develop good habits and acquire values through their own behaviour.
    • The Saints teachers are the democratic ones which believe in that "you could do it the way I do" and not the autocratic ones which say 'do as I say'.

  7. Responsibility
  8. Every child wants to be a monitor and does in All Saints International School. Lurking behind a talkative child can be an organized mind; an 'always upto some mischief' child becomes an exemplary discipline incharge.

    Each and every child is given some role or responsibility turnwise throughout the session. The purpose is manifold:

    • Build leadership capabilities
    • Develop self-esteem and self-confidence
    • Motivate the so called naughty students or weak learners
    • Practice through action the value of Equality and 'First among equals'
    • Allow each and every child to shoulder responsibility and learn accountability

  9. Environmental Control
  10. Students enjoy an environment that changes frequently and that is why they are drawn like magnets to a needle to their cheery classrooms which affords them personal space and physical space, visually appealing interiors and personalized environment.

    • Students decorate their class soft boards (inside and outside the classroom) with their creative expressions.
    • Festivals and celebrations acquire special meaning as they put up a Christmas tree; draw a rangoli design or hang festive festooning.
    • They are allowed to sit in groups or semicircles for various class activities.

  11. Standard and Non-conflicting Instructions
  12. Students also take certain things for granted and of course standard instructions if prominently displayed come handy to the newcomers among students and teachers as well. Also, these guidelines ensure that no conflict arises in terms of test dates or home assignment dates even among the different teachers coming into a class. Every classroom has a soft board and white board with explicit instructions put up daily on them.

    • Date, class strength, number of absentees
    • Word of the day and its meaning
    • Route/Walker list
    • Lord's Prayer and Dispersal Prayer
    • Time table and Home Work schedule
    • Bell Timings
