Pluralism and Diversity
India is a melting pot of cultures, customs and traditions. Appreciating this diversity and having a pluralistic attitude is key to becoming contributing members of society. The school environment, staff and practices acknowledge and reflect this belief.
We are constantly learning and evolving to facilitate an excellent education for our students.
We provide students with adequate opportunities to develop and hone their perspectives. They are encouraged to be mindful about the world beyond them and its impact on their lives and vice-versa. The school strives to instil the values, attitudes and behaviours that support global citizenship – creativity, innovation, commitment to peace, human rights and sustainable development.
At AKSM We firmly believe that parents play a pivotal role in the functioning of the school and the overall development of their children.
Parents from diverse backgrounds are offered a variety of opportunities to participate in the various activities of the school. They participate in workshops, Annual Day programmes, field trips, class activities, exhibitions and special events.
They are also invited as resource persons to interact with students and other parents. Parents are encouraged to volunteer their time and support the school to facilitate their child's overall development.
The school also seeks parental cooperation through its Parent Teacher Association – Executive Committee (PTA-EC) body. The PTA comprises of parents from the Primary and Secondary Sections who are elected under the guidelines of the State Education Department.
The PTA-EC has one parent and one teacher as representatives of each grade. PTA-EC elections are conducted at the beginning of each academic year. Thus, the school encourages an on-going partnership between with parents to ensure smooth functioning of its operations and to support the community.
PTA members assist the School in:
Thus, the school encourages a symbiotic partnership between the School and the parents to ensure smooth functioning of its operations.
AKSM's Student Council was established to provide students with the voice and choice to create a mindset of self-direction and a powerful student-centric movement. Members have the opportunity to hone their intrapersonal and interpersonal skills and learn about the ethics of fair governance and the essence of democracy. Some of the key skills that they develop include reflection, responsibility for oneself and others, teamwork, valuing multiple perspectives and leadership.
The Student Council is a composition of Secondary Students (Grade VIII, IX and X) with 14 members. The council members are democratically elected by their fellow students and teachers based on parameters including integrity, leadership, and academic consistency. The Student Council is led by the School Captains, (Head Boy and Head Girl), the Sports Captains, and the Captains and Vice Captains of the four school houses.
AKSM follows a traditional methodology of apportioning pupils into smaller groups, known as houses, and thus creating smaller communities within the wider school community. This enables the students within the groups to demonstrate and develop social values and team spirit.
Each house's name is inspired by various eminent personalities in India. At AKSM the four houses have a specific name, colour, and symbol - Mahatma Gandhi House (Yellow), Mother Teresa House (Blue), A.P.J. Abdul Kalam House (Red) and Rabindranath Tagore House (Green). Further, each house is represented by the House Captain (a student) and led by the House Master (a teacher).
Every student from Grade 1 onwards is assigned to one of the houses and remains in the same house throughout his/her school life. The students contribute to their house by participating in various Inter-House Competitions in sports, cultural, academic and discipline related activities throughout the year. Houses compete for the rolling trophy which is awarded to the House with the maximum points.
