“Children learn as they play. Most importantly, in play children learn how to learn.” -O. Fred Donaldson
The co-curricular opportunities TSUS provides make for a more motivated and engaged group of students, which leads to a happier and more cohesive school.
We expect our students to be involved in co-curricular activities and offer a diverse range of opportunities with sporting, performance or other activities to choose from. Students who consistently participate and achieve in co-curricular activities are motivated when recognized in regular assemblies.
PERFORMING ARTS AND VISUAL ARTS
Blending culture and passion across a diverse, creative landscape, The Shri Ram Universal schools are home to a vibrant and dedicated community which celebrates and practices art in the form of public speaking, visual arts, music, dance and theatre.
DEED (Debating, Elocution, Extempore, Drama) classes are held throughout the year and the students’ talents are showcased at the various inter – house, intra – school and inter-school events.”
We at TSUS believe that learning is incomplete without the experiential component. Keeping this our focus TSUS organizes school trips. Every effort is made to ensure that the students explore the natural world around them, seeing what they have learnt in the classroom come alive. There are trips for every grade.
- Educational Trips.
- Community Outreach Trips.
- Subject /theme based trips to support the curriculum.
The Shri Ram Universal School will have a very active Environment Programme called “SHRI PARYAVARAN.” It will work towards developing a sense of responsibility and purpose in the children. The school will initiate many programmes, to name a few :
- Anti-Cracker and Child Labour Campaign
This Campaign is to bring awareness amongst students against use of crackers and to bring awareness with regard to their manufacturing, especially those done by young underage children in deplorable conditions.
- Save The Tiger Programme
Under the “Kids for Tigers Programme” children are made aware about endangered animals and birds, especially the Tiger and appreciate the fine balance between man and Nature.
- E- Waste Campaign and Plastic Awareness
An awareness drive/ workshop is conducted to help students reduce, reuse and recycle E-Waste. The school being a ‘No Poly Bag Zone’- use of alternative materials and products like cloth and jute bags is greatly propagated and encouraged amongst students.
CLUBS AND SOCIETIES
The clubs will provide an opportunity to the students to give wing to their creative pursuits in a supportive environment. These clubs will build the children’s decision making skills as they choose which activity they would like to pursue.
- TASTY BITES (COOKING WITHOUT FIRE CLUB)
- YOUNG POTTERS (POTTERY CLUB)
- RHYTHM AND RAAG (DANCE AND MUSIC CLUB)
- SHRI MANCH (THEATRE CLUB)
- EXPRESSIONS (CREATIVE WRITING CLUB)
TSUS, Chennai, takes pride in providing best-in-class sports facilities like Cricket field, Basket Ball Court, Yoga Room, Indoor Sports Arena with table tennis, carom, chess etc. For the younger ones, we have created a specially designed play area with sand pit, play gym etc. that will motivate them to come to school every day with excitement and joy in their hearts.
The main objective of life skills education at TSUS is to enable the student to develop self – awareness in becoming a functional individual and contributing member of society. Ranging from simple skills such as tying laces, doing up buttons, laying the table to advanced interpersonal and leadership skills these help students understand themselves and contribute to growth in personal responsibility as well as empower them in challenging situations.
There is no service more noble than service unto others. At TSUS we will involve the children from the primary years to sensitize them to the underprivileged in society. Some of the proposed activities will include working with various NGOs to help the underprivileged, collection drives such as blankets, books, clothes, perishables (food items) to help the needy during times of natural disasters. On occasions such as Founder’s Day and Children’s Day our students will connect with less privileged children and help make their days become brighter and more hopeful.
