Extra Curricular Activities
Glendale Academy provides a plethora of extracurricular activities. Physical education, Music and Craft are part of the core curriculum for all classes. In addition to this, Glendale offers a number of programmes as listed below:
Hobbies: Glendale gives an opportunity to every student to explore their talents. Every week the students have two continuous hobby periods and they are allowed to choose the hobby they wish to pursue. There is a wide array of activities from which they can choose both Indoor (Arts, Crafts, Drama, Dance, Music, Karate and Yoga) and Outdoor (Cricket, Tennis, Football, Skating and Athletics).
Clubs: Following the philosophy of Multiple Intelligence, Glendale started the concept of a ‘Club Period’ which takes place once every week. Students have the freedom to choose the club they are interested in and hone their skills in a particular domain. There are nine clubs in total: Debate, Visual Arts, Music, Performing Arts, Literary, Eco, Quiz, Home Science and ICT.
Inter-House competitions: In order to promote the feeling of team spirit and leadership, Glendale hosts a variety of Inter-House school competitions which provide a platform to the students to display their talents.
Inter-School competitions: Children realize their true potential when they step out of the comfort zone of their campus and compete with students from various other institutions. In order to increase the confidence levels of the students and sharpen their skills, Glendale gives plenty of opportunities to its students to participate in various inter-school events ranging from Model United Nations (MUNs) to Business Plan competitions. Glendale also hosts the Literary Fest, Glendale Trophy, Open Challenge Athletic Meet and Aquatic Meet which are huge inter-school events.
After School Programmes: The sprawling campus offers various facilities to the students, one of them being the ‘Extra Coaching Facility’. Students who excel in a particular sport are given special coaching and selected to represent the school in various Inter-school and regional/national meets.
Glendale also keeps introducing various programmes like ‘Horse Riding’ classes which take place after the school hours. These classes provide an extra leverage to the students by exposing them to various activities and enhancing their skill sets.
Community Service: Glendale believes in robust character development and hence, continuously encourages its students to serve the community. Our students have successfully participated in a number of community service programmes ranging from environment protection to imparting education to underprivileged students.
Cultural Events: Apart from the routine activities conducted in the school, the school hosts a variety of cultural events where every student is given a chance to perform to his/her capabilities. Razzmataz, Kinderwonder, Founder’s Day celebrations, Decennial Celebrations, Urdu Day, Telugu Day, Umang- Hindi Diwas are a few cultural events that take place every year.
Glendale Academy imparts a blueprint for brilliance for its students with a scientifically designed curriculum and faculty trained to impart brain compatible methodology. Every aspect of learning, and the conscious experience, is connected to the way in which the brain processes information and experience. So in essence, all learning is brain- based. The concepts form the building blocks of all learning.
Example: We use multiple intelligences to help the students to easily integrate into a multi-faceted world we live in. Our philosophy is, "The more ways we teach, the more children we reach".
The theory of multiple intelligences was developed in 1983 by Dr. Howard Gardner, Professor of Education at Harvard University. It suggests that the traditional notion of intelligence, based on I.Q. testing, is far too limited. Instead, Dr. Gardner proposes eight different intelligences to account for a broader range of human potential in children and adults. Children learn in many different ways. He proposes that each person has eight different intelligences that work together but exist with different strengths in different individuals. One of the most remarkable features of the theory of multiple intelligences is how it provides eight different potential pathways to learning.
The theory of multiple intelligences is very intriguing and it expands Glendale Academy’s horizon of available teaching/learning tools beyond the conventional linguistic and logical methods used in most schools (e.g. lecture, textbooks, writing assignments, formulas, etc.)Two intelligences - verbal intelligence and logical – mathematical intelligence, have dominated traditional teaching. The five nontraditional intelligences have largely been overlooked in education.
Glendale Academy has, in Hyderabad pioneered to adopt the principle of multiple intelligence and developed ways to teach and learn by engaging all eight intelligences thus increasing the possibilities for students’ success.
The curriculum is planned to enable every child to sharpen his/her respective intelligence:
Linguistic Intelligence: Communicating skills are improved through creative writing, poetry, debates, public speaking, listening, storytelling, explaining, teaching, understanding the syntax and meaning of words.
Musical Intelligence: A ‘Rhythmic mind’ is developed by singing, whistling, playing musical instruments, recognizing tonal patterns, remembering melodies, understanding the structure and rhythm of both classical and contemporary music.
