HOLISTIC EDUCATION AT NORTHRIDGE
SATURDAYS OF SELF DISCOVERY
Alternate Saturdays at Northridge are strictly reserved for non academic development. On these days the text books are put aside and the day is devoted to one of Self Discovery, both in the child's aptitude and value systems.
PERSONAL DISCOVERY & SKILL DEVELOPMENT
Skill-set demands are changing much faster than those our standard curriculums can keep up with. Even as recently as 5 years ago, lucrative career options such as App Developers or Social Media Optimizers were unheard of but are in high demand now. A scholastic education must allow children to dip their feet into various areas until they find the field they have the aptitude for and can succeed in.
Northridge offers a wide variety of structured courses on real world skill development based on the choices of both the parents and students. These include:
Web & App Coding (HTML, Java, Python)
Graphic DesignIntroduction to Architecture
Nutrition & Culinary Arts
Fashion & Textile Science
Film & Photography
The list is as vast as our collective imaginations!
RESPONSIBLE LEADERSHIP PROGRAMME
Skill development and intelligence are not nearly enough. Children at Northridge participate in modules which not only facilitate the process of self discovery but also teach them life skills which the standard curriculums ignore as well. Students learn values and integrity, including the now almost totally forgotten virtues of compassion and charity among others.
"Giving frees us from the familiar territory of our own needs by opening our mind to the unexplained worlds occupied by the needs of others."
True power is the residue of responsible leadership... one that not only recognizes but also respects the rights and dignity of others. Some of the main leadership virtues that we nurture at Northridge are:
Independent and Creative Thinking
Self Belief and Confidence
Planning & Time Management
All these little things... and much more... go a long way in bringing out a true ‘leader’ in your child.
