While the fact that every child is unique is well known, sadly it has not found its application in education. We still follow the age old pedagogical approach of teaching down the student in a set 'chalk and talk' format. At MLZS Surat, we aim to translate our belief that every one of our students' is unique into a pedagogy that adopts the child's personal learning style.
Understanding is different from knowledge. While knowledge relies on memory, understanding relies on conceptual clarity. Our current education system only nurtures rote learning and testing. Students cover syllabus but do not necessarily get the conceptual understanding required for application. MLZS Surat aims to apply the belief 'there is something BEYOND ACADEMICS and this is called.......REAL UNDERSTANDING'.
Real understanding by every child requires an integrated approach. Enumerated in MLZS Surat's Vision and re-iterated here, a school is a micro system where different factors have a direct effect on the child. The teachers, the curriculum, examinations, the environment, the infrastructure, the activities - all come together to nurture the unique potential of the child.
Some of us misinterpret 'new-age schooling' with greater infrastructure or technology enabled education. While we have ready access to all of these amenities, we also believe that these are only parts of a bigger whole. At MLZS Surat, we follow an integrated model of 'Learner Centric Education' where the CHILD is at the centre of everything we do. Our education isn't just about academics - it is so much more - its 'beyond academics'.
Our extra-curricular and co-curricular programs are designed to nurture the unique skills and talents of each child. From dramatics to debates, arts to music, sports to yoga and taekwondo, MLZS Surat takes care of all aspects of a child's development.
A weekly indulgence which the children look forward to with much joy! Creation of beautiful objects not only soothes the mind but instills a love for self expression in various ways.
Pottery, masks, embroidery, fabric painting to name but a few of the decorative forms which our students' enjoy under the guidance of our specially trained Art and Craft teachers....... trained not merely to guide but to appreciate even the humblest of efforts!
All MLZS Surat girls and boys are trained in self-defense.
They make an admirable picture during their Taekwondo classes held in our spacious school hall supervised by internationally renowned masters!
Needless to say, the kids enjoy this activity enormously and are ever ready to run up to the hall to release a bit of their vast reserves of energy!
The school has its own play field and hosts an array of facilities for both indoor and outdoor games including football, basketball, carrom, chess, skating, basketball, darts and several other games . There is a large indoor hall area for recreation during adverse climate conditions and rainy season.
All of us know how young children and older ones alike love music! What all of do not realize is that there is a strong correlation between early language skills and music - as a group activity, music encourages children to listen and learn words, and sing them to a rhythm. As a memory boosting exercise it cannot be praised enough!
Yoga calms the children both mentally as well as emotionally, allowing for a serene introduction to the day's activities. Our trainers joyfully provide extra training to those children who wish to take up the intricacies of this ancient form of all round well being.
As a result of this single focus to achieve a particular pose or stay balanced, yoga helps children to focus and concentrate in school and get better grades.
MLZS Surat boasts of several little budding experts who have done us proud at many a competition!
Unquestionably the Top Draw among students!
We at MLZS Surat are fortunate to have well known professionals and choreographers on our team of instructors. All forms of dance classes are imparted to children - classical, Indian, modern and Western.
