The ability to speak the English language with all its proper pronunciation nuances forms the backdrop of teaching in English Lab. Based on the “Wordsworth” syllabus designed to enhance English Learning among students, the topics are relevant, interesting and the concepts are age-related. The exercises include speaking, listening, comprehension, vocabulary and writing of English, which enables the students to enrich their language skills in an enjoyable, interesting and simple manner.
What is a computer and how relevant is it in our lives? Questions such as these are part of the previous century. Today, computers are everywhere. In the lab, apart from the history of computers, students learn to work on the computers. This involves understanding and writing language and code, learning creative and technical tasks, hands-on projects and creation of power points.
Art and Craft
The importance of art to a society can never be explained adequately. Art not only helps to develop the brain but also cultivates important skills that are beneficial for a child’s development. The use of colours, shapes and figures, helps the children interact with the world around them and aids in self-expression and communication. We have a creatively furnished art room where children explore the world of colours, making fun.
At Mount Carmel we believe that music forms an integral part of life and hence cannot be left out of the human experience. Children listen and learn new songs, sing, clap and dance. Knowing that the music score is truly the only real international language, we want each child to know the basics of reading music, and playing the scales on more than one musical instrument. Our school choir is recognized as one of the best in the city.
Play Station Area
What the football field is to an older child, the play station area is to the preschooler. They love to play with the beautiful soft toys, puzzles, colourful blocks, kitchen sets and building blocks. It is here that a child learns to develop basic social skills, teamwork and sharing.
The Dance room is bright and colourful with paintings of different forms of dance which makes it attractive, interesting and informative to the children. It also has inbuilt mirrors which makes it possible for the children to see themselves and improve their movements and steps as they are being taught.
Perhaps, one of the most important rooms in any school, the library provides an opportunity for children to enjoy the world of the written word. From books on history to tent making and igloo dwelling, it opens an imaginary portal like no other tool can. For our students who have difficulty in reading, audio-visual aids are provided. We also have a large collection of books and novels in Braille.
Apart from the library period, books are allotted to all classes, wherein the children get the opportunity to read on a daily basis after finishing their classwork. We also organize special events for children, such as story telling, just a minute (talk show) and many more activities related to the library’s services and resources.
The Counselling department offers psychological counselling for all students. Our counselors provide personal and group counseling on all working days. The school counsellor is in touch with the students and the parents from the Orientation day till the end of the academic year.
Special education is a haven for students with learning and physical challenges. The junior school has a trained special educator who, with the help of teachers, identifies students with special needs, assesses their abilities and understands their specific strengths. A remedial programme is chalked out based on the special needs of the children. Under the inclusive model students who are differently abled benefit from additional educational services.
Junior wing has a well-equipped, air-conditioned wellness centre. The centre is equipped with double bed, refrigerator, nebulizer, steamer, BP instrument, oxygen cylinder and other emergency paraphernalia along with medicines and a first aid kit. A complete medical check-up is conducted annually for all students, while twice a year, measurements of height and weight are conducted.
MCS also has a very efficient and disciplined fleet of school transport. Our fleet consists of thirteen buses (School owned and contracted), eleven of them big buses and two mini buses for the Junior wing. The bus fleet has experienced drivers and conductors that meet more than just the basic criterion. Knowing the importance of safety, men and women guards are posted in all the buses.
