CIVICS IN ACTION
“Civic Literacy is the knowledge of how to actively participate and initiate change in your community and the greater society. It is the foundation by which a democratic society functions”.
At Vikas, the well-educated teachers are able to create democratic cultures in the classroom. They have the skills and understanding needed to construct frameworks in which children from an early age are motivated to take an active part in democratic activities in the schools and consequently in the wider society.
Everyone requires civic education; it empowers every individual to get well-informed about their surroundings, which would mould them into active citizens and for continued contribution to a change in the world around us. It is indeed a vital part of any democracy for equipping ordinary people with knowledge about our democracy, especially our constitution and its rights.
People who live by these democratic values and engage continuously with communities, authorities and institutions to bring about change in societies are what we call active citizens.
"We believe that India is only as good as its citizens". Our mission is to empower young people to be the very best they can be, so that India is the very best it can be.
THE NATURE WEAVERS- AN ECO-FRIENDLY APPROACH SOLUTIONS
A school is just not about academics, but also it's about environment-friendly building and its resources, minimizing wastage of natural resources, and much more. We ensure our school accommodates every child with a fair amount of space to enhance their ability to be a part of this natural world.
- Pupils to walk for reducing carbon footprints.
- Tree plantation program.
- Eating green vegetables and fruits instead of processed foods
- Usage of recycled papers and making the best out of waste
- Get down to the earth to know our source of existence
- Be energy efficient and stop wasting resources
- Keeping the environment clean - as cleanliness enhances mental ability with inflow of positivity.
We together hope to create a civic network where staff, parents and students can be actively involved to resolve issues related to our very own environment in their own small way, supporting a healthy and secure life on Earth.
The summer classes of entrepreneurship were really fun and interesting. It gave me the freedom to imagine and to create new ideas. The classes taught me teamwork to figure out an answer to a problem. We also had group projects which were really fun and enjoyable. We created objects that were unique Entrepreneurship is something that we should learn when in a business and in life. I think we should continue having entrepreneurship classes next year too!
I really enjoyed the online art classes conducted by my school, Vikas. I found that there was a personal connection between me and my teacher. The virtual art class helped me express my creativity and I was encouraged to draw and paint whatever I wanted to. I had the freedom to be independent and use the technology to my best advantage. It was a great experience and I would like to attend more such virtual art classes
Entrepreneurship is a really enjoyable class and I really liked it. I learned many new things from this class and enjoy it. I learned to explore to new things and that I can make things with minimum products. According to me entrepreneurship is a very valuable class and I think more people should try it. I would be happy if the classes start again.
Entrepreneurship class was very nice. We learned many new skills. There were a lot of activities. Some of them were group activities. We had to connect with different people from home to do group tasks. It was my first time learning about entrepreneurship. I liked activities like wacky invention, marshmallow challenge, etc . I learned about concepts like how to run business, profit and loss etc. The teacher was very encouraging. I wish there could be more classes like this.
