Term:

Our Academic Term starts in April and ends in March. School closes for 6 weeks during the summer, and 1 weeks in winter. We also have a 10 day break at the end of the academic term.

Classrooms:

Children study in bright, airy and cheerful classrooms. Furniture has been specifically designed for different age groups. Each classroom has been technically designed for echo cancellation. The arrangement has been done in such a way that the teacher can interact with every child individually. The Nursery and Kindergarten sections have been provided with toy chairs, wall paintings, mattresses to add to the 'play and learn' system.

Learning Resource Center: (LIBRARY)

The Heritage school has a well established 'Central Library' for students of all age groups. Self-study forms the backbone of the educational curriculum at The Heritage School, and therefore the Learning Resource Center becomes a focal point in the Heritage scheme of things. It has been equipped with a huge range of books. Various authors on each and every topic covering their syllabus is available, to make learning a rewarding and enriching experience.

Laboratories:

Laboratories for teaching Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Mathematics, Computers are equipped with state-of-the-art equipment to ensure the best in teaching aids.

The "heart" of the learning process, as it were, the Labs are designed to make the child an independent learner, who learns to "uplink" with knowledge. The State-of-the art equipment coupled with expert instructors and one machine for each child ensure that the child is ready to take on the demands of a world with rapidly expanding knowledge frontiers. Recently the school has gone completely digital with a Wi-Fi campus for its students, parents and faculties. It is the first (and as of now, only) school in Haldwani to introduce a Wi-Fi campus.

Transport:

Safe and comfortable transportation is provided by the School. The transport service is available to all the students of Haldwani and Kaladhungi. When children and educators travel together, it automatically results in bonding, and children know that they are looked after right up to the time they reach home. Each vehicle has a fire prevention equipment, first aid and an attendant.

Infirmary:

We have a well-equipped Infirmary in the School which is always open during the school hours. Also a vehicle is kept ready in case of emergency. First-aid boxes are available with the school nurse. The School also has arrangements with the nearest Hospital.

The Doctor prescribed by the School conducts a health check once a year. The children go through a dental, eye and ENT check-up. They are also examined by a Pediatrician. Records of the medical examination of each child are maintained by the school.

Also periodic sessions are conducted by experts to educate the students about various diseases, their prevention and first aid programme.

Programme:

Academics

The Heritage School designs and implements its own skill and activity based curriculum in the pre-primary, primary, middle and senior sections. In the secondary section, although the syllabi are prescribed by the Council for the Central Board of Secondary Education (C.B.S.E.) to which the School is affiliated, the courses are adapted to our assignment and project based approach. We try to maintain a teacher-pupil ratio of 1:13, and the students study in a caring and stress-free environment that makes use of innovative teaching methodologies. All prep is done in School under the supervision of the Class Teacher. If a student needs help in a particular subject, the subject teacher sits with him/her and clarifies all doubts.

Individual and House Co-curricular Achievements are celebrated. Prizes have been instituted for Academics, Activities, Sports and for the all-round development of the student. Every year the top rank holders of each section are rewarded. For activities and sports, the school has been divided into 4 houses, which are very active and help in development of a child by creating healthy competition.

(A) Pre-Nursery, Nursery & KG

The philosophy behind pre section is "We play as we learn and we learn as we play". Goals are set in a programme consistent with the early stages of a child's development.

The strategy used is that the letters of the alphabet are introduced phonetically and this leads to identification, recognition and reading. Various activities are planned to reinforce these concepts. Teaching is thematic and linked. Functional English is introduced.

The programme includes the following skills: Linguistics, Creative, Numerical, Social/Interpersonal, Motor and Kinesthetic . Thus, we hope to hone the child's intellectual, physical, cultural, artistic and communication skills in a free and stimulating environment.

(B) Classes 1 to 5

These classes have an integrated academic programme devised to inculcate confidence in the child. The environment is communicative and children are motivated to express themselves. Reading is a vital part of the programme. Children are encouraged to ask questions.

(C) Classes 6 to 8

The academic programme is designed to develop personal and group values. Formal study skills are inculcated, and methods and strategies for strong work habits are taught to the children. Classroom techniques like pair and group work, and role play are used to develop communication skills of a high order. The children are prepared for the rigorous academic requirements of the senior school.
