THE SENIOR SECONDARY SECTION

The senior Secondary section of the school promises students to prepare them for any competitive examination in the country in addition to the designed syllabus of the classes. To fulfill this commitment, the teachers walk that extra mile and coach them after school hours so that they do not have to attend any coaching center outside school.

Studying in the invigorating atmosphere of the school, in a disciplined environment gives them focus and they can optimize their efforts under the able guidance of our highly qualified and experienced staff. This has yielded good results and a very high percentage of our very first batch of Class XII has qualified for JEE, NDA, NATA even before the board results are out.

INTERACTIVE ASSEMBLIES

The morning assemblies at Icon are as significant feature of the school curriculum. They are a means to create a positive, reflective ethos and promote value based education. They powerfully nurture the development of interpersonal intelligence. Each class, from Grade 1 to 10 takes on the responsibility to conduct the assembly for a week based on a theme identified. The students together with the class teacher explore this opportunity to showcase their special talents be it oratory, dance, music, mime, role play or dramatics. The news reader highlights the happenings around the world of the day. This is followed by an open quiz on General Knowledge and current affairs.

Wednesdays are celebrated as Accolade Days when the winners are given their due appreciation for their achievement and success in various competitions held during the week.

Special Assemblies are also conducted when a number of professionals, philanthropists and people from varied walks of life are invited to the school to address the students and staff. Yoga, Aerobics, Zumba Mass PT and Drill, March Pasts are a regular feature that help the students keep fit and healthy. 

Important days such as International Yoga Day, Independence Day, Teachers’ Day, Hindi Diwas, Gandhi Jayanti, Republic Day, Children’s Day, Earth Day, Laughter Day etc are celebrated in school.

EXPEDITIONS, CAMPS AND EXCURSIONS 

Yearly excursions and explorations encourage students to have confidence to take risks and become leaders. Travel is one of the most effective means of learning. The value of the written word, endorsed by actual images gets indelibly imprinted in the mind. In pursuance of this methodology children are also initiated to cope with like skills by being taken to adventure camps where they learn to live in the natural environs of forest like and are taught to cope with intensive physical fitness exercises like mountain climbing, rappelling, and trekking.

The process is initiated from Nursery onward when children are taken on Environment observation. Children from Class 6 onwards are taken across the country to historic and heritage sites to acquaint them with India’s multi faceted culture.

Visits to industries and manufacturing units in and around Ahmednagar are a frequent feature.

PHOTOGRAPHY CLUB

Children see the world through a special lens. There is a purity to their imagination that at some point most adults lose. Putting a camera in the hands of a child one discovers that they see life with a very different perspective than the grownups. To see the world as a constant sense of wonder, of moments to capture and hold on to, ignites a passion for photography at Icon. The photography club at Icon helps students express themselves, widen their imagination and prepare them for a world that is full of endless possibilities. As an art form it not only helps the students record day-to-day things but also helps with memory building. The club has members who are not only students of the school, but also teachers and parents who contribute to the Icon Instagram Photography Page. There is sharing of knowledge and experience irrespective of age. The only eligibility criteria to become a member of the club is to have a passion and desire to see the world through the lens.

ENVIRONMENTAL CONCERNS

The students of The Icon Public School have a responsibility towards the planet that they live in. Every year, many projects, activities are conducted to create environment awareness among the community and its citizens. These include issues such as climate change, global warming, droughts, water scarcity, floods, and pollution. Environmental awareness is a part of the curriculum and the students involve themselves through role playing during morning assemblies, talking and debating on environmental concerns, use of paper, cloth and natural materials instead of plastic, nukkad nataks in various key locations of Ahmednagar and making banners and posters to create awareness.

The students also participated in rallies on ‘Climate Change’ in Pune that promoted a strong environmental conscience, and a vision of how schools and communities can become more sustainable, and resilient to climate change.
