The present schools are progressively multicultural and multilingual with students from various social and cultural backgrounds. Samsidh has students hailing from different parts of the country with different cultural and language backgrounds.
Thus the primary aim of Samsidh and its dedicated staff is to motivate students for engaging in learning, behaving positively, and performing academically. In our education system, we apply the concept of Social and emotional learning (SEL) that gives safe and positive learning, and upgrades our students’ capacity to prevail in school, professions, and life.
5 Keys to Successful SEL
Research demonstrates that SEL not just improves achievement by an average of 11 percentile points, yet it also enhances prosocial behaviors such as kindness, sharing, and empathy that improves student attitudes toward school, and reduces depression and stress among students.
Effective social and emotional programs adopted in Samsidh includes facilitated classroom and top notch and innovative technological learning support which help our students to develop the following skills:
Self-awareness includes understanding one’s very own feelings, individual objectives, and qualities. Samsidh helps our students to be self aware through our education system followed. With that, our students are able to precisely evaluating one’s qualities and constraints, having uplifting attitudes, and having a well-grounded feeling of self-adequacy and hopefulness. High levels of self-awareness requires the capacity to perceive how thoughts, feelings, and activities are interconnected.
We also equip our students with self management skills in both their academic studies and extracurricular activities conducted at school. Self-management requires aptitudes and frames of mind that encourage the capacity to direct one’s own feelings and practices. This incorporates the capacity to defer delight, oversee pressure, control impulses, and persevere through challenges so as to accomplish individual and educational objectives for our students.
Through our educational system and SEL learning, we focus on creating social awareness for our students with programs like field trips to different locations. Social awareness includes the capacity to comprehend, sympathize, feel empathy and compassion for those with different backgrounds or culture. It also includes understanding social standards for conduct and perceiving family, school, and community supports.
We at Samsidh, give focus on developing their relationship skills both at school and at home with family members, friends, teachers, relatives, etc. Relationship skills help students to set up and keep up sound and rewarding relationships, and to act as per social standards. These abilities include communicating clearly, listening actively, cooperating, resisting inappropriate social pressure, negotiating conflict constructively and looking for assistance when it is required.
Responsible Decision Making
At Samsidh, we aim to develop 21st century change makers and leaders with our exclusive and extensive academic curriculum and other programs conducted at school. We believe that every child is a changemaker and leader who have the responsible decision making skills. Through Responsible Decision Making, we teach them how to figure out and settle on helpful decisions about close to home conduct and social connections crosswise over assorted settings. It requires the capacity to think about ethical standards, safety concerns, accurate behavioral norms for risky behaviors, the health and well-being of self and others and to make sensible assessment of different activities’ results.
