SKILL SUBJECTS - 2021-22

Dear Parents— Greetings from SOS Hermann Gmeiner School, Varanasi! Hope you are doing your best possible to protect yourselves and your families from the fury of Covid-19 pandemic! Please take care. We are sure that Corona will be defeated and we are back to normalcy soon. Through this letter, we would like to inform you about the decision of CBSE to introduce Skill subjects in Class 11 from this session-2021-22 onwards and we have chosen the following three Skill subjects out of a long list given by the CBSE (a student is supposed to opt for any one as the Sixth subject in Class 11)---- 1. Marketing 2. Web applications 3. Health care You know well that our country is churning out thousands of graduates every year but there is a staggering skill gap with around 93% Engineers and MBAs not employable. The right skill development from School can help students get jobs when they are graduated. Let me give you a brief idea about what the Skill subjects are and how they are beneficial for students. In Skill based learning, teachers focus on imparting education through planning and practice. To help the students retain the concepts of a subject, teachers plan, discuss ideas and provide constructive feedback so that the students can reflect on the skills gained in the classrooms. Students are motivated to think logically, analyze concepts and apply their insights. The whole idea is to develop the students into independent thinkers and prepare themselves for the challenges of future especially in getting a job or becoming an entrepreneur. Above all, choosing a Skill subject as the sixth subject of study in Senior Secondary classes will help the students in securing higher percentage in Board examinations and passing the examination gets easier as the Result is computed based on the Best five subjects. So, please help your wards in choosing a Skill subject well. A brief description of the benefits (career options available) of choosing a particular Skill subjects are attached with this letter.

Activities

 

Edu Sports



Edu Sports have been introduced in the school for primary and pre-primary students. It focuses on developing fundamental / gross motor skills providing a variety of sports. This is being achieved by equipping all children with the right skills and fitness levels to engage in life-long physical activity and sports.

 

Morning Assembly

Each school day begins with a general assembly of entire school community, teachers, students and other employees. Prayers are offered at this gathering to develop oneness of all religions and patriotism in the students. The daily news headlines are read out. Eminent visitors from all walks of life are invited to address the assembly. Music is an essential part of the programme. Morning assembly is also used as a forum for training the students in the areas of public speaking and value education.

 

NCC & Scouts and Guide Activities



In order to inculcate discipline and Leadership qualities, we provide opportunities like NCC (Naval Unit) & Scouts and Guides to a large number of students. They are prepared physically and mentally to help others in society.

 

Games and Sports

Sports serve society by providing vivid examples of excellence— play grounds and courts of standard dimensions for games like Basketball, Volley ball, Football, Kho-Kho, Hockey and badminton dot the school campuses. Athletic events also add flesh and blood to the sporty life of students in the school. Sports and games are encouraged in the schools not with a view to promote competition but to look high beyond competition and participate in the events in order to maintain a healthy body and mind. Opportunities for competition at inter-house, inter- school, CBSE and National levels are made available to the students and they are encouraged to reach their full potential. School is a regular participant in CBSE and Inter HGS Sports Meets. HGS Varanasi has bagged a Bronze medal in the CNSE national Athletic Meet in 2016 in Gujrat.

 

Martial Arts



Karate is one of the most systematic and scientific Japanese traditional martial arts, that teaches more than physical fighting skills. It is a discipline that shows ways of enhancing our spirit and life through training our body and mind. Today, it has become a global sport that has gained an international reputation, and stands among the official games in the Olympics. Schools want their children to be good in all spheres, so Karate training adds the extra shine in students’ personality. Taekwondo is another martial art form enabling students safeguard themselves in times of distress.

 

Yoga

Yoga is the practice of accessing and integrating all aspects of our true nature -- body, mind, and spirit. Yoga experts in the schools guide the students to derive the benefits of yoga in day to day life and make it stress free and healthy. Inter House Yoga Competition is held every year.
