Primary Education is the foundation of learning, laid at the formative stage of a child’s life. This age is the most impressionable span of life when these little learners are adaptive and observant of every activity happening around them in their immediate environment.
Our primary section of education is child-centric and focuses on inquiry-based learning so that the little ones find joy in learning. The interactive and engaging curricula with a delightful faculty help transform the curious minds into active learners and help them grow. The highly energetic environment complements experiential learning with curricular activities for holistic development. Subjects at the primary level are selected with the sole objective of making children aware of the world around them.
We constantly strive to ensure that children, at the early stages of their lives, get a strong foundation of academics through interaction, attention and guidance. This helps them develop into better individuals of tomorrow.
We believe in all-inclusive education and hence, our teaching spans beyond classrooms. We use our expansive natural surroundings, conduct field trips and excursions to make learning experiential.
“There is but one God. True is His Name, creative His personality and immortal His form. He is without fear sans enmity, unborn and self-illumined. By the Guru’s grace He is obtained”.
– Guru Nanak Dev Ji

Celebrating festivals is an integral part of learning at Gyan Devi Salwan Public School. Being a diverse country, through such celebrations, students not only learn the significance behind the festival, but they also learn to embrace other traditions and cultures. Celebrations bring the school community together and build a close bond between the children.
Keeping up with this tradition, the festival of Dussehra was celebrated virtually by our Primary students on 13th October 2021. The students participated in fun-filled and learning activities which included a role play by the little ones who were beautifully dressed up to play the role of their favourite mythological character from Ramayana. The children who enacted were perfect in their poise, confidence, and expression.
The teachers also shared some valuable information about the festival thus enhancing their learning.
