"An active mind cannot exist in an inactive body"
The Brigade schools have a strong conviction in wholesome learning. Wholesome learning encompasses academics with sports, co-curricular activities both Intra School, and Inter school; and Art and Performing Arts.
Balancing mind, body and spirit for optimal growth, sports are a part of the student's weekly schedules. All three of our schools provide ample spaces and experiential coaching for sports like Football, Basketball, Volleyball, Athletics, Swimming and more..
The all-round sports activities promote an active body and better physical health while educating students on the values of teamwork, discipline and true sportsman spirit.
ARTS & PERFORMING ARTS
"Educating the mind without educating the heart is no education at all!"
Our belief in the power of extra-curricular to relieve stress from academics, fulfil wandering fancies of the heart, and discover and build student's talents is steadfast. Our schools provide versatile programmes in Fine Arts like Sketching and Painting and Performing Arts like Music, Dance and Theatre, spurring creativity and unleashing powerhouses of talent to reach greater heights.
The Art & Performing Arts (APA) Department in the Brigade Schools firmly believes in Albert Einstein’s words; “Logic will get you from A to Z, imagination will get you everywhere.” What better is there to give wings to the creativity of the mind than music and dance. The Music Curriculum at the Brigade Schools is composed of 4 main elements: Listening, Analyzing Appreciating and finally Creating, beginning from Nursery up to Std 12. An effective way to ensure students listen to music with purpose is to use a method called SQUILT, which stands for 'Super Quiet Uninterrupted Listening Time'. Once the students have understood the essence of listening to music, they learn musical pieces and songs of top artistes and music composers from different genres. Students learn how to truly appreciate the sounds and the various elements of music and create. They learn to express themselves using the lessons they have learnt, along with a pinch of innovation to make their projects unique.
"Learning by doing"
Mind space is a unique co-curricular activity, focused on learning through practical application. Mind space encourages children to put their theoretical learning into practice and 'learn by doing'.
Mind space addresses careers; the physical, mental and social dimensions of growing up; intra-personal and inter-personal skills. Children learn Spoken Kannada so that they won't feel alienated from the society around them. Besides, general knowledge, special computer workshops, life skills, debates and seminars are all conducted under this section. Our activities here target both teachers and students. We aim to include parents in this programme, by organising talks and activities for them in the future. Other plans include our aspirations to work with an institution for less fortunate children.
