Week Without Walls

Learning outside the classroom can help to bring many school subjects alive as they focus on real results and consequences. Quality learning experiences in ‘real’ situations can raise achievement across a range of subjects and develop better personal and social skills. “Earth and sky, woods and fields, lakes and rivers, the mountain and the sea, are excellent schoolmasters, and teach of us more than we can ever learn from books.”-John Lubbock.

Most of us are aware of the concept of the Week Without Walls or WWW,

This one week each student from nursery to 10th grade experiences a new setup of learning, Their daily environment changes and they have exposed to something more lively the younger grade students visit various places based on their interest, it also helps them develop various skills like teamwork, cooperation, independence and improves their basic skills about a various subject better than books ever could. 

For the higher grade students, this week is more like a stress buster, a way to leave behind all the books, all the assignments, etc. An experience to live life without their parents and to coordinate with their peers.

WWW is not only for the students it is also a program for our teachers, it is a new environment for the teachers they teach in an individual, unique manner. 

They bond with the students in an implausible manner.

This year due to the coronavirus it was a little difficult for WWW to happen, but our principal sir and the WWW team managed it, however. All the grades from 4 to 10 were taken to Matheran Hill Station on different days. The best part- There was a teacher’s trip too.

The students were given the freedom to explore the place and enjoy themselves. There was no force for anything. Students did many activities like horse riding, trekking, playing indoor games- like carrom, badminton, and table tennis in our very own Syedna Taher Saifuddin (RA) Memorial Sanitorium. We visited the bungalow of our His Holiness Syedna Mufaddal Saifuddin (TUS) and learnt about the history of our Moula (TUS)

After all, it was a significant experience for us.
