Life Skills Program

Introduction

The AMI School believes that the cognitive skills gained through core academic coursework are critical, but that it is equally important for children to develop the social and emotional skills essential for lifelong success – skills best learned through a well-rounded, "holistic" curriculum.

This holistic approach to education encourages students to explore ideas and experiences that will help them become responsible and active participants in society. By exposing students to a wide variety of experiences it also lays the foundation for building proficiencies necessary to compete in a world where technical abilities and non-cognitive skills such as leadership, conflict resolution, self-discipline, effective communication and ethical decision-making are essential.


Our ‘"Life Skills Program" aims to integrate the learning of such skills in the school. It has been introduced at the Junior and Senior levels since last year and includes the following courses:-

- Taekwondo

- Roller skating

- Creative Clay

- Theatre

- Vocal training

- Public speaking

-Home gardening


Expert instructors and teachers are hired for these courses and the classes are held every week. More courses will be added each year to create a wider spectrum of interests and experiences for the students. Presently, our course instructors include:-
