The above quote is the guiding principle of the work, that is done at the primary level ( I to V) of Soundarya Central School. The curriculum is based on the NCERT frame work as per CBSE. The medium of instruction is English.
The syllabus becomes more broad based at this level and gradually the young learner is exposed to a wide range of subjects and study material which is suitably graded in accordance with the CCE.. Apart from Maths, English, Kannada, Hindi, E.V.S. and Computer Education subjects like General Knowledge are also taught. As early as class I, students learn to work on computers in the Multimedia Lab which has been especially equipped to meet the needs of the young learners. A plethora of choices are given to the students for their Work Experience classes ranging from pottery to public speaking, cookery to clay modelling. Last but not the least, in order to inculcate moral values and general awareness of the students, inter-active sessions are held in the Life Skills classes.The teaching of all the subjects is done using the TATA Class Edge Smart boards. This makes learning a joyful experience for students.
