School Emblem

Acknowledge the goals you want to to achieve

Success is not an overnight phenomenon,

Prepare for the future, not what is bygone,

Indulge completely in making yourself believe.

Remember your past, and keep learning,

Engage with positive thoughts, face your fears.

Prepare for a better tomorrow, my peers,

Experience the falls while you are yearning.

Remind yourself that you can go places,

Step up, rise and quit procrastinating,

Pursue the dreams that you have been seeing

Invigorate the zeal, that helps your chases.

Rewind, revisit but never resort to mistakes

Exchange your sweat for making you better

Instill confidence, that you can share later

Never give up, keep doing whatever it takes.

Successful people have at times, failed a lot,

Progress is when you make failure stepping stones

Instead of complaining, crying and sighing moans,

Rejuvinate the vigour, invoke that shaking thought

Excellence has three stages, Aspire, Inspire, Perspire

Smart Class

Smart classrooms are technology enhanced classrooms that foster opportunities for teaching and learning by integrating learning technology, such as computers, specialized software, audience, response technology and audio/visual capabilities.

Southside International School provides new age digital education solutions through smart learn classes in such a way that it holds the interest of the student and helps them to understand the concept better.

We have introduced digital learning in all classes using smart boards. We introduced NCERT published books and bring all the contents of CBSE curriculum to the screen. We are still on the look out to get more effective IT methodology to make class rooms more interactive.

Smart Classes are conducted by a teacher using a viewing screen that is attached to the projector. Students will assimilate the audio-visual information that is projected on the screen and learn about the topic.

Transport Facility

The need for safe passage of each child to school and back home is on paramount importance to us. To ensure safe travel, the school has its own fleet of school buses designed as per standards and manned by trained drivers and personnel sensitized to the need of small children. The Transport Services (optional) is operated by the school and a separate transport fee is charged for this. For supervision and monitoring a transport attendant is on board throughout the journey.

Mobile phones have been provided in each bus that ensures efficiency in terms of service and better communication in case of emergencies. Besides ensuring the implementation of the safety norms, all staff on the bus is well trained in first aid and emergency management.

Divisions and batches are allotted as per the transport requisitions put forth by the students as transport service is not available for a few batches. Kindly enquire with our transport department before finalizing with the admission process.

Abacus

Abacus education has consistently been considered as an established approach to improve brain. This form of education not only enables one to calculate in a manner similar to that of a calculator but also helps one in having an enhanced visualization power and a more efficient brain. This simple calculating device goes a long way in clearing the complex mathematical concepts clearly to the students, especially those who are slow learners.

‘Learn by fun’ technique always proves fruitful. Therefore Abacus, also called a ‘counting frame’ is well adopted for doing calculations in primary classes.

Southside International school provides such a abacus education to the children and enhance their visualization power and a more efficient brain.

Yoga

Yoga trains the mind and soul of the students. Students from KG to Std. X are taught Yoga in the school.

As a part of new scheme of pedagogy, we have yoga classes as a part of the regular schooling with syllabus.

Sanitary Incinerator Machine

It is much essential to have sanitary napkin incinerators at school. As per a recent survey many of the adolescent girls drop out their education due to the lack of menstrual knowledge and poor access to sanitation facilities at school. It is our fundamental right to provide basic sanitation facilities.

Education and awareness about menstrual hygiene, accessible to sanitary products and adequate sanitary facilities at school would improve the schooling experience. By placing the incinerators it is evident that girl children can attend and reach their full potential in schools. In the absence of incinerators the disposed napkins are dumped in the waste bins either flushed down in the toilets

Southside International school provides such hygiene and sanitation facility in our campus to provide our girl children will attend and reach their full potential in class activities and other events too. Thus we provide adequate sanitary facilities at school and provide the schooling experience.

Laboratory

The School has well equipped laboratories for Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Computer Science and Maths. Students are encouraged to use these laboratories to learn through experiments. Every year latest instruments, specimens, charts etc. are purchased for these laboratories.
