in equipping the future workmen with the right attitudes and skills
that would help them become winners and leaders in this new information
age. A modern infrastructure, continuing realignment of curriculum
and pedagogy and a committed & skilled faculty are essential
ingredients of a new age school.

Holistic education encompasses development of the cognitive, psychomotor
and affective domains. While the degree of proficiency required
in these areas may vary with the profession one chooses, it is imperative
that students are provided the opportunity for development of each
of these domains. SelaQui curriculum is designed to ensure this.
Cognitive domain covers:
Complex thinking skills
Information gathering and processing skills
Collaboration and cooperation skills
Productive habits of mind (critical, creative and self regulated
Affective domain covers:
Discipline, Responsibility, Values and Leadership
Emotional intelligence, viz, ability to manage emotions, manage
ones motivation, empathy and managing relationships.
Stages of development, viz, trust, autonomy, initiative, competence
Psychomotor domain covers:
Physical fitness - the emphasis is on strength, endurance, flexibility,
speed and coordination
Skill at individual and team games
All round development of students is ensured through two complimentary
processes. Each student is assessed on the various parameters of
each of the three domains. This ensures that they focus on these
areas and produce creditable performances.
Simultaneously, through our tutorial system each teacher mentors
8 to 9 students round the year to ensure that regular coaching and
counseling is available to them.
At the start of the academic year students set targets for achievement
in each of the parameters that are assessed. Their progress is thereafter
monitored regularly right through the year by the tutor and interventions
provided whenever necessary.
This is reviewed every month by the house mentor and Headmaster.
Teacher with a Difference
The SelaQui School positions the teacher at the pinnacle of the
learning process-but with a difference. The teacher is no longer
the provider of all knowledge. He or she is a facilitator , who
uses the new technology to motivate the students to explore for
themselves the world of knowledge. Motivated and inspired, by the
opportunity of learning to Innovate, and Innovating to Learn, the
teacher at SelaQui continuously renews and updates subject knowledge
The teacher is a leader and motivator; role model and mentor; learner
and innovator; Leading by example.
Comfortable with convergence technologies, as tools for learning
and evaluation, the teachers extensively use multi-media and audiovisual
A Mentor and Role Model
The teacher at SelaQui, in varying capacities of subject teacher,
house tutor, house mentor or activity guide or a fellow sportsperson,
develops with the limited number of students under his/her charge
a close rapport & relationship that comforts and inspires the
student to learn and grow in an atmosphere of affection, warmth,
trust, togetherness and openness.
Positive and enabling environment enables the student to delve into
the treasure of talent and merit within.
A First Learner
Keeping in view the rigorous demands of our curriculum and pedagogy,
teacher training and capacity and competence building are at the
core of the learning processes deployed by SelaQui. While the school
closes for 90 days in a year over two breaks of 45 days each, the
SelaQui teacher avails only 45 days of annual holidays in a year.
The rest of the time (45 days in two blocks of 22/23 days each)
is devoted to faculty development programs (FDP) to update and continuously
realign subject content and pedagogy.
The school is also exploring the possibility of exchange programs
with some of the leading schools worldwide. Teachers from the participating
schools will spend 4 to 6 weeks at each other s school to study
their school systems and adapt the best learning practices.
