There are four Houses in the school – Red, Blue, Green and Yellow. Every student of class I onwards is placed in one of these Houses.
A student designated as House Captain heads each House. A teacher, assisted by House Tutors, acts as the House Warden. Points are awarded to the students throughout the year for their performance in curricular and co-curricular activities. Points are also awarded to individual students and groups for their performance in competitions.
Inter-House competitions are organized and trophies are awarded to Houses for their performance in literary, cultural and sports activities. Every outstanding student is given a certificate for his / her performance in these competitions.
SLP (Student Leadership Programme)
As society grows more civilized, modern and educated, the need of finding emerging leaders has become increasingly important. So schools are confronted with a dual responsibility of identifying the potential leaders and developing their talents by providing the opportunities.
Leadership education continues to be a concern in gifted education but remains an abstract concept that is often ignored in school curricula (Karnes & Stephens, 1999). We equate leadership education with academics, and teachers are trained for leadership skill development. Even, students are given adequate opportunities to grow their potential.
For the development of leadership skills the young learners are provided umpteen opportunities, through number committees such as the school council, the mess committee, the games committee, literary committee, etc. where they play a major role in making the policies and executing them.
The entire discipline of the school is left to the Students’ Council. The Prefects and the various Games’ Captains are given responsibility and a reasonable degree of authority to function effectively.
Capacity Building of Educators
With the changing needs of society the role of education is changing so are the expectations from the educators. So for strengthening the teaching skills and capacities of the educators’ play a crucial role in providing new dimension to learning by the students and teachers themselves. Keeping this emerging demand from the system and to keep our staff abreast with the latest trends in the field a number of training programmes are organized round the year even the resourse persons from other organization are invited to conduct training sessions for the staff.
Parents Orientation Programme
We at BIPS realize the significance of Parents Community in the versatile development of the institution. In addition to seeking parents’ suggestions and help in day to day functioning of the school we even organize Parents Orientation sessions for the better participation of our esteemed Parents Community in the noblest cause of educating the young generation.
Improving the quality of education is an on going endeavour of the school. The school library houses varieties of educational materials, reference books, teaching aids and audiovisual materials such as CD-ROMs, etc. These materials are used by the teachers to prepare lesson plans and equip themselves to impart a quality education to the students and students use the same for the better understanding of different concepts. Films and documentaries on various aspects of education are screened on a regular basis to develop interest in the children and to inspire them.
At BIPS subjects are taught much more efficiently with the use of multimedia. Just by using projection screens, the lesson becomes quite interesting for the students; especially the visual learners are able to absorb the material much easier. Today, it’s not enough just to know how to pass the information to children and adolescents in order to be a teacher. You have to know how to use an office suite and maybe even more programs/applications to do several tasks. You can’t just handwrite some information, photocopy them and hang them to your students. You must know how to write documents on the computer and make spreadsheets to keep an organized students’ database, among other, and this is just an example to see the importance of knowing how to use a computer. The teacher’s role is not just to read a book in the classroom. A student can do this by himself, or even use an online library, like Wikipedia, which will provide him a plethora of information anywhere, anytime. The teacher’s role is to help the student understand his lesson, and this can be easily achieved by using multimedia. If a student sees his history lesson on a video, he will learn things much easier than by listening to his teacher reading it or by reading the book.
