Co-Curricular Arena

Robotics

Robotics programme has been a part of the regular curriculum for Cambridge students Grade 2 to Grade 8. To succeed in this information-based and highly technological society, students need to develop their capabilities in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) at different levels. Building a robot involves inference drawing, model construction, testing and controlling a robot calls for the ability to give precise inputs.

When done in a team, robotics calls for collaboration and communication for the project to work. This teaches students valuable life skills in teamwork, communication and even community participation. The rationale for inclusion of robotics in education is thus a well- founded one and stands on solid ground.

Many popular tool kits like LEGO, littleBits, Arduino, Scratch Programming, 3D Design and Printing etc are made available for the students under a single roof for activity-based learning which are highly interactive, educative and informative.

Butterfly Fields

These are Science and Mathematics kits which are given to the students of Grades 1 to 5, to have hands-on experience with experiments and Practical study of scientific and mathematical concepts. Students thoroughly enjoy doing experiments with these kits.

Dramatix

Dramatix is a self-development programme for the students of the primary section that focuses on garnering the following traits

  • Develop confidence and become an expressive individual
  • Hone their vocal & projection skills
  • Nurture their creative and risk taking abilities
  • Build self-esteem and overcome stage fear

On-going Activities for all the Grades

Soft Skills & Personality Development

Effective communication is vital in all aspects of life. The ability to communicate effectively and fluently increases a child’s self-esteem and confidence. At KENNEDY HIGH the global school, we have understood the need of the hour and have incorporated comprehensive English Communication and Language Proficiency Labs to cater to this need. The communication lab at KENNEDY HIGH the global school is a state-of-the art facility with a digital classroom and provides the right ambience for the ‘out-of-the-box’ thinking that is crucial for any communication training program. Soft skills, body language, voice intonation, modulation, gestures, and tips for effective public speaking are part of this interactive English Proficiency Program. The classes, held on a weekly basis, provide every opportunity for the students to explore their limits of imagination, creativity, vocabulary, and hone their communication skills. The goal is to make them think in English language, remove the mother-tongue influence and give them the ability to present themselves effectively with the style, sharpness, clarity, and ease that comes naturally to a native English Speaker.

Soft skills, multiple intelligences, and emotional intelligences are some of the core concepts that make the framework of the activities conducted in the Personality Development Lab. Students are exposed to various facts of their personality. Through interactive modules, they get an opportunity to collaborate, think independently, learn to follow social etiquette, and emerge as responsible and articulate student leaders.
