UDAYA MENTORSHIP PROGRAMME
It is compulsory for all members of academic staff to adopt one child every year as a mentee. The mentee has to be a child who is going through difficulties in form of financial, psychological, familial or health struggles. The teacher’s role is to ensure that the child gets special attention and support that can lead to a compassionate and empathetic educational experience.
The School provides after School remedial classes to those students who struggle in specific subjects. Parents are expected to get in touch with the class teacher if they want to avail the additional guidance and individual attention that these classes provide
The School organizes workshops for both students and teachers all year round. The topics for these may be specific to a subject or include a holistic understanding of education. Workshops vary in terms of both organizers and participants every year and are tailored to meet the specific requirements of the recipients.
SOCIAL SERVICE AND COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT
We, at UPS, consider social responsibility to be an integral part of good education and therefore wants to work towards creating an environment that fosters the spirit to “giving back”. The School through its clubs encourages students and teachers to participate in relevant social issues. Book donation, infrastructure sharing, fund collection for natural calamities cancer awareness programs, mental health awareness workshops. The School is in the process of adopting a local Government Primary School to be able to start a meaningful public-private partnership (PPP). The social service wing of UPS aims to spread education and be a vehicle for change in communities that need it the most.
Home visitation by teachers is carried out in case of a child struggling to adapt. It is compulsory for all children of the 10th and 12th grade who have to write their Board exams. The purpose of home visit is to encourage cooperation between parents and children and to keep the lines of communication open. We hope to expand our home visit program to one visit per child in the coming years.
The School elects a Student Council every year. The students are selected on the basis of their academic and co-curricular record. The students are expected to submit a Curriculum Vitae to be assessed fairly. There is also an interview to short list deserving candidates for posts that have more applicants than posts. The investiture ceremony takes place every 15th August. The student council has members from the 11th grade who are selected of a well-defined screening process. The Screening process is made transparent to all students of the 11th grade. The purpose of the council is to provide children with leadership qualities and event-management experience to be able to work closely with Teachers and The Management. The School issues an internship certificate to all students who finish their year of work in Student Council.
Our School keeps abreast of the latest technological innovations. Our school campus in wifi- enabled and has all cutting edge technology required for better knowledge dissemination. We use Computers, Laptops, Projectors, Tablets and DSLR Camera. We also have SMS facility that keeps parents up to date. We will also be launching an android app for Parents to monitor their child’s performance and grades.
However, according to latest research hand held devices like smart phones and tablets are causing physical and mental harm to the students. We, therefore, actively discourage the excessive use of these devices. We also request our parents to be aware and vigilant to prevent misuse of internet by adolescents.
Internet based research is discouraged till the 10th grade. Parents are advised to encourage active entertainment amongst children like outdoor games and reading.
