Extra Curricular Activities
Our Creative Lab is a space designed for our children to explore their artistic talents and develop their own intrinsic style. Splashing a canvas with colours while listening to music, their self esteem is strengthened and so is their character. They learn the different techniques of art- both Indian and Western- and to appreciate great painters and sculptors.
An Art Exhibition is held every year to showcase their budding talent and to encourage them to fulfil their potential.
The school's two- floor library is imaginatively stocked with over 7,000 titles that cover fiction and non-fiction in all genres and subjects. One section of the ground floor is for the Pre-Primary while the other section houses the books meant for the Senior School. The library often has children participating in interactive sessions, which include story-telling, ‘Read-a-thons’, quizzes on books and their authors as well as book reviews that are often written on a page attached to the back of a book – although, sometimes one can find them just leaning back against a cushion, reading peacefully, lost in the pages of a good book.
The library has a TV and contains a stock of multimedia materials (CDs, DVDs and videos) for use in the classes. Students are actively encouraged to use the library for independent study and for research towards their presentations and projects as well.
Dancing in all its forms cannot be excluded from the curriculum of all noble education; dancing with the feet, with ideas, with words, and, need I add that one must also be able to dance with the pen? ~Friedrich Nietzsche
Thus at Freedom our children dance away at every opportunity. The children are exposed to classical music and dance and so discover their traditional roots and rich history.
Bharatanatyam, a classical dance form, is taught from Class I onwards. This popular dance form is a combination of melody, expressions, and rhythm. The three main elements of Bharatanatyam are Nritya, Nritta, and Natya. Nritya emphasizes body movements and various dance postures. Nritta highlights rhythm and body movements. Natya gives significance to poem and drama. When performed with absolute concentration, this dance form is as beneficial as yoga. The numerous health benefits of bharatanatyam include helping to improve body balance, flexibility, concentration, endurance and discipline. Every year, our children showcase their talent in dance through the School Day function, Inter House competitions and Inter School competitions as well as performances during the celebration of various festivals.
Every promising talent needs a guru and at the school, Carnatic music is taught in a systematic manner by a competent teacher, adhering to the rules of classical music.
The basics of Carnatic music are based on a swara system. To start learning carnatic music, the student is trained with voice training sessions called varishas, followed by geethams, varnams and keerthanes. Varishas are swara patterns that train a student to handle a particular raga to equip him to learn carnatic music. It also initiates the students to the concept of tala or rhythm. Carnatic music is sung at different speed levels in order to increase the strength and control of the voice.In addition to learning vocal music, the children begin to appreciate great carnatic music and well known singers of this genre.
Every year ‘Thyagaraja Aradhane’ is celebrated in school, in which both teachers and students participate with great enthusiasm.
Western music too has its place in the curriculum at Freedom International School.
This enables the students to learn music from an international perspective. Apart from English classical music and popular songs, the syllabus includes songs of various European screen plays, like Caro Mio Ben, Encosta Tua Cabecinha, Zum Galli Galli which are of Italian, Portuguese and Israeli origin respectively. This enables the students to broaden their scope and understanding of European and Middle Eastern music.
Drama is an art form which embraces all the other art forms and gives the learner a wonderful exposure to all the arts. The school provides a platform for children to express their theatrical talent by putting up a number of short plays for various events and festivals throughout the year. Through drama exercises and games, the children are taught to enact, enunciate and emote.
After all as Shakespeare once said "All the world's a stage and the men and women on it merely players."
Yoga is a form of exercise, meditation, and breathing practices with Indian roots designed to bring unity to the mind, body, and spirit. Children experience many of the same physical benefits adults do from practicing yoga. Yoga strengthens them and helps them become more flexible and coordinated.
At Freedom International, we have a specific programme for yoga that helps children to develop their powers of concentration, to learn ways to relax and get control of stress in their lives. Besides, yoga for kids teaches self-discipline. As part of the practice of yoga, kids need to slow down, hold certain postures, breathe or think in a
certain way. It also enhances imagination and empathy.
Children are asked to strike poses from nature. They might assume the pose of a snake, or a tree, or a dog. Then they are asked to imagine what it would be like to be those life forms. In this way, children learn early on to connect with all the life on the planet and realize that similarities far outweigh differences.
The Tender Loving Care (TLC) Centre is a facility offered to the children of school. The daily schedule at the TLC Centre is arranged so that children are engaged in a variety of educational and recreational activities. Children need a balanced schedule that includes time for instruction, time for free play, time for motor skills development, and time for rest.
Transport is an optional facility offered by the school to children. The buses are owned and run by the school itself. The school takes every possible precaution to see that the children travel safely to school and back. Each bus has a female support staff in addition to the conductor and driver to ensure safe passage. The drivers are carefully vetted and chosen for their cautious driving. In any case, speed governors have been installed to prevent over speeding. The buses are company models designed to carry school children.
Our vision is to work together to nurture young minds and teach them self-reliance, integrity, responsibility and free and fair thinking so that they become life-long learners and make a positive difference to the world of tomorrow.
Freedom International School aims to provide a conducive, child-centred environment that promotes independent thought and instils in children, a strong sense of individuality and a passion to excel, so that they contribute meaningfully to the global community t large.
