Life Skills enable students to be adaptive and to exhibit positive behaviour. They help individuals to deal effectively with the demands and challenges of everyday life. Life Skills being major indicators in judging the overall performance of the students as per the new evaluation pattern of CBSE are of prime concern to all of us at St. Xavier’s.
The school endeavours to inculcate the same by organizing various activities. A special life skill programme has been charted for the students of class IX, which is of 12 hours duration covered in over 8 sessions in 6 weeks in the school premises. These sessions cover core life skills, there is a mix of activities, simulations, role plays, interactive discussions and audio-visuals. The key areas covered under the program include self-reflection, goal setting, breaking mental barriers, listening skills, managing emotions, managing relationships and leadership.
This programme helps students to inculcate self-discipline, resistance to negative peer pressure and positivity in children. It also helps in strengthening ‘Child- parent relationship’.
