Educational System

Deviating from the age old customs and norms are giving scopes for the much desired revolution to happen. HOLY MARY adopts its own system of education which has been thoroughly practiced, tested, validated and proved successful.

HOLY MARY first makes an effort to improve the handwriting of the students. Cursive handwriting is the policy of the school. However considering the tender age of the little ones, this policy is implemented only from the day first of the class 2nd. Together with good handwriting skills the usages of the punctuation and the clean maintenance of the note books are also taught. HOLY MARY calls this whole process “Writing Fluency”.

The student has to read the subject with the exception of regional language subject in English. So an ability to read English well is must. For this reason HOLY MARY concentrates well on improving the reading ability of the students. HOLY MARY achieves this by making the students learn to read the lists ‘High Frequency Words’, ‘Service Words’, ‘Blends’ etc. HOLY MARY names this ability the “Reading Fluency”.

One should understand that is comprehended what he reads. One should also need to know what should be the object of reading.  Considering the age and standard of each group of children HOLY MARY attempts to improve the ability of Reading ‘Comprehension’.

The students are encouraged to read their text books regularly. This helps the students to reinforce the knowledge they acquired while listening to the lessons of their teachers. This gives the wonderful opportunity for a child to improve away from the system of rote memory of questions and answers.

To improve the writing skills yet another Novel Method is adopted by HOLY MARY. The basic grammar of a sentence together with the mechanism of sentence building (syntax) is taught. The student is made to fame the questions first and then learn to answer them all by themselves.

We have also adopted the method of ASL; Speaking and Listening Skill through which one can become so confident in life to be anywhere to face the challenges.

HOLY MARY believes that these efforts will certainly make any students a self leaner for a life time.
