Bridging the Gap

Gurukul believes that parents are important stake holders in the process of education. The real output and learning enhances when the parent- school effort is coordinated to achieve a seamless and accelerated development of child both in the classroom and at home. We call it BRIDGING THE GAP.

CLUBS: We have a well framed club system where the parents are used as resource to teach different skills to the students. Workshops for parents on different issues of child development, parents volunteers to join schools outings with the students, inviting parents to assess students in the inter house competitions are all part of this effort.

SUNSHINE CALLS: A phone call from the class teachers to the concerned parents for discussing about the progress of the child. This medium is also used for sharing any special information about the child.

STUDENT LEAD CONFERENCES: Parents are invited as audience to witness different events like seminars, mock parliament sessions, skits, round tables on the current social, national, economic issues. The presence of parents in such events motivates the students to excel in life.


CELEBRATION OF IMPORTANT DAYS: School organizes different activities to celebrate days like GRANDPARENTS DAY, MOTHERS DAY, FATHERS DAY, FAMILY DAY and many more where parents and grandparents take part in the event along with their children.


POT LUNCH: An informal get together of parents, teachers and students where they voluntarily choose to bring in one edible commodity from their respective home and share it with the gathering. This helps in bridging the gap between the fellow parents and the school works as a medium to develop an integration in the community it works. 


Beyond Academics:

• Today, more than ever, especially when the entire world seems to be screaming for “marks”, life skills are critical. The ability to lead, to follow, to have a secular worldview to be a team player, to empathize, to have an integrated value system, to have self esteem, to be able to conduct oneself appropriately in any company, to be able to think “out of the box” are the areas that need to be built upon.


• DEDICATED LIFE SKILL PERIOD: Life skill is an integral part of our regular pedagogy in Gurukul. We have a dedicated LIFE SKILL period in the time table for life skill teaching and a proper scheduled curriculum is followed to get the desired outcome.


• SENSITIVITY IN TEACHERS & STUDENTS ABOUT LIFE SKILLS: School follows a philosophy of ‘WHAT, WHY and HOW’. All the students are taught to “Stop – What you are doing; Think – of the consequences; Do – the right thing and make the best choice before following any course of action. Not only for the students even teachers follow the same method when it comes to implementation of a new concept where they evaluate and then execute it with full conviction.” We also emphasize the practice of W.I.T.S. where:

W stands for work away.

I stands for ignore,

T stands for talk to someone,

S stands for stand up for you in a cool way.


LIFE SKILLS IN SCHOOL: Value based teaching in school where all teachers involved in teaching scholastic or non scholastic section incorporates the following skills of SELF AWARENESS AND EMPATHY, CREATIVE THINKING AND CRITICALTHINKING, DECISION MAKING AND PROBLEM SOLVING, EFFECTIVE COMMUNICATION AND INTER PERSONAL SKILLS, COPING WITH EMOTION & STRESS.

Innovation in pedagogy:

• Our teaching methodology focuses on child centered teaching where students are made to take initiative while monitoring is done by the faculties from outside. Regular project work and assignments are set for the students to allow them to do research and come out with innovative ideas. All questions, debates, quizzes, field trips, adventure activities, community service are regularly organized in the school with the focus to ensure positive growth and leadership skills in the students.                                     


A fully WIFI campus with broadband connectivity.

An ERP for easy access to all student related information from anywhere in the campus to all the facilitators to save on time and resource.

All teachers are equipped with laptops for using ICT effectively.

All class rooms are ’smart classrooms’ to help the students have better understanding of the difficult concepts through PPT, reference from youtube, modules from the internet and display of digital content.

Using SKYPE as a medium of communication students organize video conferences with schools from different parts of the world under the auspices of British Council, Tony Blair Foundation which helps them to have an insight into the culture, tradition and other aspects from their counterparts.

School has created a community on google through which teachers share excellent resources on pedagogy. 

• BUILDING LEADERSHIP SKILLS: Gurukul in its drive to bring in leadership skills in the students has used the adventure trip as a medium and students are sent to these trips in different groups to hone their skills of leadership through different adventure activities like high altitude trekking, Rock Climbing, Rappelling & River Crossing


FIELD TRIPS: Students are sent on field trips to have a better grasp of the content that they theoretically learn in class rooms. They visit places like industries, construction sites, dairy farms, bakery, banks, supermarket, parliament . This helps the child to develop the insight and inquisitiveness to learn things with ease. These trips are properly and meticulously planned by the team of teachers and experts.


REMEDIAL CLASSES: Gurukul pays special attention to each and every child. Remedial classes are planned to help the slow learners come at par with their peers by giving them specific concern in a special way. The teachers adopt such students for the session and keep a close track of those students for the whole session with comprehensive worksheets and addressing the weaker areas of the child.


FINISHING SCHOOL ACTIVITIES: For the development of soft skills in students our teachers ensure during their routine teaching and free period as well that the students use proper body language, proper colloquial language and proper turnout.


EMPOWERED SCHOOL COUNCIL: School council and prefectorial board is given opportunities to make their own discipline policy and are empowered to solve problems at their end under the supervision of teachers.


Responsible Citizens:

• Community service brings awareness amongst students not only about the core issues of the country but also generates virtues like empathy and fraternity in them.

BLOOD DONATION CAMPS AND OTHER DRIVES: In school we have taken care of these aspects and our students take part in various community service activities like

Blood Donation Camp, Pulse Polio Immunization Camp, Tree Plantation Drive, distribution of gifts, blankets and food to the needy during festivals like Deepawali and Christmas.

 Organization of Adult literacy camp and literacy camp for children of construction site workers was a well appreciated venture taken up by the students of our school in the nearby areas and even inside the campus.

School is an active member of Help Age India Foundation, TERI and NGO’s like GOONJ, Interact club


We, at Gurukul The School are fully committed in bringing changes as per the need of the time. Environment has always been an essential parameter for our consideration in all the aspects of the school.
