GCC International School is a proposed CBSE (Central Board for Secondary Education) following the syllabi of National Council of Education Research and Training (NCERT)
The curriculum is designed keeping in mind the needs of the students of 21st century. The wide range of curricular and co-curricular opportunities offered helps instil in children confidence and discipline. The focus on developing communication skills helps them appreciate the value of education, as it reflects in their ability to express themselves, in addition to developing pragmatic skills.
The Primary Section Programme encourages enquiry and exploration, and develops student’s competence in various skills – reading, writing, listening, speaking, problem-solving, observation, measurement and use of information and communications technology. Field trips, excursions, activities, projects and presentations provide experiential learning opportunities.
The Secondary Section Programme is structured to meet student’s varied intellectual and developmental needs. The curriculum is a blend of the CBSE Programme and the International blend that builds on concepts and skills learnt in the Primary Section. It ensures progression and continuity across various stages of learning in the school, and incorporates continuous evaluation and review of children’s performance.
PSHE (Personal, Social, and Health Education) helps students address their age-specific interests and concerns, builds awareness, and promotes compassionate and ethical conduct. Physical Education is offered in a more formal manner and sports skills are fine-tuned. This prepares students to pursue sports in a more structured and purposeful manner, including studying sports in the Secondary School as a formal subject.
The main aims of the Programme are developing skills related to writing, reading, reflecting, critical thinking, public speaking, fostering initiative among students and a desire to acquire knowledge.
