WHAT WE DO

Extra-curricular Program

Talent Development Program

 
Individuals use different, unique blends of intelligences to solve problems and
fashion products (Susan Baum).


The purpose of school should be to develop intelligences and to help people reach vocational and avocational goals appropriate to their particular spectrum of intelligences. People who are helped to do so, I believe, feel more engaged and competent and therefore more inclined to serve society in a constructive way
(Howard Gardner).
 
Each child has unique talents, interests and intelligence. Dr. Howard Gardner has presented 8 different intelligences that each one of us has in varying degrees. This means that all children have a deep potential and natural talent in certain areas. They require the right environment, nurture and exposure to explore and enhance their talents in order to develop further within these areas.
 
 
Program Objectives
 
•  To enable children to explore and enhance each of their multiple intelligences.

•  To recognize & develop children's strengths, interests and talents.
 
 
The Talent Development Program at Redbricks School
 
We have developed the talent development program in the school to identify and nurture students' talents. The program goes beyond age or grade-level expectations by providing challenges as per the learner's interest and readiness.

"Talent development refers to the journey from novice to expert, on which an individual travels in his/her area of talent" (Susan Baum).
 
 

Primary Years (Class 1 to Class 4)

 
Interest Centers- In the Primary Years, children have interest center modules in which they explore & enhance each intelligence through real-life projects falling under each intelligence. For example- Under Bodily Kinesthetic Interest Center, children conducted a project on finding out ways of healthy living and wellness.

They also have certain sessions where learning centers are created for each intelligence, and children are free to choose any learning center to engage in the materials placed there. The first step of talent development is talent identification. Through the Interest centers program, it is possible to observe and identify students' strengths and intelligence profiles across the various intelligences.

Middle School Years (Class 5 to Class 8)

 

Interest Clubs- In the Middle School Years, we offer interest clubs under which children develop specific skills. Different experts are invited to the school to conduct this club over a period of an entire semester and help children learn specific skills related to that area. For example- Robotics and Photography clubs were conducted in the Year 2013-14 with 5th and 6th Graders.

High School Years (Class 9 to Class 12)

 
Apprenticeships- In the High School Years, it is projected that children will choose an area of expertise as per their interest. They will then conduct internships as apprentices to an expert within that area.

This program gives children real-life vocational experiences where they learn about various fields and professions. By the time children come out of high school, they are clear and prepared to set their career goals based on their own talent identification and the wide exposure of professions that they have undergone.
