A Welcome
From Our Principal

Rekha Pandey

Principal, Udayachal High School

Welcome to Udayachal High School, a place where each day brings with it new delights and fresh insights, where young students find that the purpose of life -is a life of purpose; where application of knowledge has become the benchmark of education, where international and cultural exchange have become the norm, where values are not taught but lived every moment, where the students perform centre stage and we support them by being with them, around them, behind them, accepting , appreciating, admiring and applauding their transformation. Udayachal is a temple of knowledge where excellence is the tradition and is reckoned to impart high quality education to our students and in the process foster their over-all development to become ethical and proficient human beings. Our primary emphasis is to provide our students with a benevolent and supportive environment where their mind, body and soul can be nurtured with utmost care. We at Udayachal are always in an incessant pursuit to strengthen the enduring values, beliefs and cultural strands that have given Udayachal its unique identity. Our most significant endeavour is to inculcate in every child the values, ethics and principles which will metamorphose them into responsible global citizens.

Udayachal High School focuses on innovative teaching methodologies in the curriculum so that the whole learning experience becomes fruitful and exhilarating. We have therefore always embedded an international dimension within the curriculum to provide the students with a larger perspective about various subjects pertaining to important issues. Our students are provided with ample opportunities along with all the amenities and expertise required to hone their skills and pursue their various interests.

We firmly believe that our education structure stands tall on a strong foundation laid by our Honourable Founders and comprises the prominent pillars- the students, parents, teachers, non-teaching staff and the management. We maintain an excellent rapport with the parents so that they interact with the teachers regularly and work together to ensure that our students make consistent progress. With the unified efforts of the dynamic faculty and the ever supportive management and parents, we have become an epitome of quality and excellence.

Being the Principal of Udayachal High Schoolis the greatest privilege of my life as it has presented me with the prospect of nurturing the young, enthusiastic and tender minds of our children who are the inheritors of the future. I am blessed to have an enterprising team of more than a thousand students, teachers and staff combined with the zestful support of the management.Together they form the cohesive force that can elevate Udayachal to the pinnacle of success.

Our students have scaled unprecedented heights,soared higher and higher with each passing year and the accolades won by them have swept us with the waves of euphoria. While we cherish their accomplishments, the following lines by poet Robert Frost inspire us on and on:-

"The woods are lovely, dark and deep,
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep."

Curriculum &
Methodology

This oft-quoted saying encapsulates our outlook to teaching. We teach through visualisation, using innovative teaching aids which ensure that students connect abstract concepts while mastering subjects. Here are some of our initiatives towards active and multi-sensory learning:

"Tell me and I may forget,
teach me and I may remember,
involve me and I will
understand"

Curriculum
Activities & Events

Co-curricular activities not only serve as a break from the intensity of the curriculum, but also develop students’ appreciation of creative pursuits, arts and culture. Here are some of what we cover.

Art & Handwork

Art & Handwork

Art and handwork are given prominence in our curriculum alongside the message of sustainability. Each child is given the freedom to express creatively and encouraged to use waste material. Students recycle and turn such items into utility based aesthetic articles without any monetary expenditure. Indian motifs and art forms are greatly encouraged.

P.E. & Yoga

A healthy body houses a healthy mind. So, physical education is given its due in the children’s education process. A combination of exercise, games, malkhambh (traditional Indian acrobatic pole act), yoga, gymnastics, aerobics, and lezim (vigorous physical dance and drill) are all included. We shun the mundane and encourage creativity at every step.

Music & Movement

Children learn songs in different Indian languages which they go on to perform at the school assemblies and cultural programmes. Consequently, our programmes always reflect the variety and richness of our cultural heritage. To us, music is not just vocalising the scales or the usual nursery rhymes, it is teacher-composed songs on different themes like trees, seasons, birds, animals etc. The rhythm keeps children’s spirit going and they naturally dance to it too. Plenty of innovative musical instruments made out of industrial waste encourage children to play in rhythm. Dances that reflect the real Indian tradition are fun and a wonderful way to exercise!

Dramatics

Regular programmes, besides Annual Days are designed to promote self-expression, confidence and creativity. Role play also brings about catharsis, where feelings are dealt with.
