At Hari Shree we believe in the development of intellectual, mental, physical, emotional, and so-cial abilities in a child so that he or she is capable of facing the demands of everyday life. This would help the child find his/her unique place in the world in alignment with his/her special tal-ents. Our children are involved in a wide range of activities aimed at their holistic development.
Circle Time is a time when students come together to engage with and listen to each other. Be-sides group learning and collaboration, it is a powerful tool to encourage participation, elicit good behavior, resolve conflict and promote collaboration. Our circle time activities are multi-faceted in that they aim at improving general awareness, impulse control, promoting a sense of classroom community and listening.
Students are provided with guidance and counselling for their academic, social and emotional development. The Skill Development Cell and the Career Guidance Cell work with resource per-sons and bring in experts to interact with students and guide them. Students and parents are sup-ported by the school counselor as per the needs of the student.
The Visual Arts program at Hari Shree provides an opportunity to the students to bring out their creativity while developing their personality. One can choose from Art & Craft/Digital Painting (online) and Sculpture/Painting (in-person).
Performing arts encourage children to explore their emotions, expand their imagination and help them develop their own, unique expression. The Creative Expressions (CE) Performing Arts program in Hari Shree includes Classical Dance, Western Dance, Choir/Bhajan, Western Music and Theatre.
Music is offered as part of the Creative Expressions (CE) program. Students can choose between Western and Indian Classical. They get an opportunity to learn various styles and genres. They are also given a platform to showcase their skill on various occasions during the school year.
Dance is offered as part of the Creative Expressions (CE) program. Students get an opportunity to learn various styles and genres under the two main categories of Western & Classical Dance. They are also given a platform to showcase their skill on various occasions during the school year.
Theatre is offered as part of the Creative Expressions (CE) program.
The importance of theatre as a collaborative form of performing art cannot be undermined. A combination of gesture, speech, song, music, and dance, together with elements of art, such as painted scenery and stagecraft such as lighting are used to enhance the physicality, presence and immediacy of the experience. Hari Shree’s theater program is handled by a professional theatre group.
Sports help in the overall development of students. The Physical Education department helps the student learn lessons of life, such as teamwork, accountability, self-confidence, responsibility, and self-discipline, through sports.
The Leader in Me program is a new initiative built on the foundation laid by “The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People®” by Dr. Stephen R. Covey, the well-known American educator and author. Implemented from grades 2 to 8, the program is designed to help discover the potential within every student, and equip them with essential leadership skills to be life-ready.
The After-school programs are non-scholastic in nature and focus on the interests of students by providing an engaging space for them to enhance their creative and sporting skills, beyond the regular school day. At Hari Shree, students get to explore a wide range of programs like cricket, football, basketball, badminton, Bharatanatyam and embroidery to name a few.
At Hari Shree, students have the opportunity to explore and nurture their own interests by enrol-ling in any of the Paid Club programs. Though similar to the after-school programs, these are more diverse and specialised and often involve external facilitators. These include activities like Model United Nations (MUN), matte painting, pottery and sculpting, aeromodelling, table tennis and chess to name a few.
