Oxford Reading Tree – Report

“I do believe that something very magical can happen when you read a good book” – JK Rowling.
The Oxford Reading Tree, a reading program, is a new initiative launched by the Presidency Group of Schools in the academic year 2015-16. This proposal was implemented because of the efforts of the highly dedicated Director of the group, Ms. Nafeesa Ahmed. Her aim is to bring in new trends in education and add value to student learning.
It is a known fact that early readers receive multiple benefits and is the key to a child’s academic future.
The ORT enables young students to become proficient and confident readers. It has taught millions of children worldwide not just how to read, but also love reading. The content and the stories are designed to invoke a natural curiosity and relate incidents that children associate with fun. The exercise also aims at enhancing the vocabulary of the students.
The fascinating books would make children want to read more and more and instill a love for reading books.
The ORT at Presidency School Bangalore South is at a nascent stage, but it is interesting to see our children completely engaged and enjoying. It is our firm belief that as we progress we will see our children as self-confident and motivated readers. On this note we can conclude that early reading ignites a child’s creativity and imagination and gives him/her an edge to express.
The parent community at PSBS is happy as they notice a slow but steady and positive change in the reading patterns of their children!!

Special Education & Counselling

Special Education programs are designed for those students who are mentally, physically, socially and/or emotionally delayed. This aspect of “delay,” broadly categorized as a developmental delay, signify an aspect of the child’s overall development (physical, cognitive, scholastic skills) which place them behind their peers. Due to these special requirements, students’ needs cannot be met within the traditional classroom environment. Special Education programs and services adapt content, teaching methodology and delivery instruction to meet the appropriate needs of each child.

The counselling services offered in PSBS promotes the holistic development of students by providing on-going prevention and intervention services and offering personal counselling to students .

Work includes:
  • counseling students ( Individual and group)
  • assisting parents or guardians to make informed decisions about their child’s education
  • ssessing students’ learning and behavior( informal)
  • assisting school to identify and address disabilities that affect students’ learning at the class level.
  • Referring students to other services and agencies according to their needs
  • Contacting parents regarding students’ holistic development and other specific problem
  • Delivering therapy on personal development, educational achievements, educational issues and behavioural developments of the child.
