No, these skills are taught according to the needs of the children i.e. according to the age requirements of the children. In the same activity, children with different ages, learn different things according to the roles assigned to them.
These programs are arranged once a day in the week. Currently these programs are offered on every Saturday.
These programs are held at our custom build “Community Resource Centre” (CRC). CRC is located within a compound covering an area of over 8-Kanals, three additional sub-campuses, two 5-Kanal each and one 7-Kanal, used for outdoor activities. We do all the activities in naturally enriched open areas and review all day learnings at CRC.
Our faculty of facilitators include professionals from the field of Human Behaviour, Psychology, Medicine, Management, Engineering, Islamic Studies and languages. It is only “passion to enrich the lives of the next generation” that can bring together these professionals under one roof and develop a future par excellence.
During the programs parents will not be accompanying the children. However, they are invited to participate in our parenting seminar in Verita at third Friday of each month. Moreover, parents can request a one to one meeting with the head of the SOUL.
No – Verita SOUL is not in competition with the existing schools and school systems. Children who go to schools learn academics such as they go through a course of study. At Verita-SOUL we are providing much-needed needed support to the children and parents in getting their children to learn core life skills that will help them trade better in their academics and is intended to provide impetus to the academic interest.
Our starting age is 4 years and we take children uptil 14 years of age. Ideally if a child has joined at 4 years must stay with us until age 14. During these ten years, the child will go through weekly sessions.
Yes – depending upon the interest of the parents and if there are other areas that need to be still covered, the child can be entered into a different league of children and may continue.
SOUL will operate on every Saturday from 1000hrs to 1600hrs.
There are not such “specific periods” for the subjects as in the ordinary schools. The organic model does not allow to dictate the children and bound in a class. It rather helps the children to go free during the time and under the supervision of a skilled facilitator go through the process of learning the skills.
No children will not be carrying any food from home. They will be served at CRC. This is a special feature of the school as all the food is organic and no processed food be served to the children. Food as we know plays a very important role in the behaviour of human beings, so we will take special responsibility for preparing and serving food to the children.
No the children will not wear any uniform. They will come in casual cloth. However, we will stressed that they are decently and well dressed and must carry an additional pair of cloths with them.
Yes, if they wish to. Bag can include their basic items. However, it is not a requirement. If there is anything, administration will inform beforehand.
Children will be perfectly secure within the premises and no child shall be left unattended during the day. All the doors are securely closed during the program.
Every month, we will hold a session with parents and may discuss the progress of the child if needed. However, in an organic model, it is not recommended to compare your child with any other.
Parents will play a very important role. They will provide the conducive environment to their child at home where he/she could practice and polish the skills he is learning. Parents are also encouraged to share any special behaviour at home or at academic institute with the Verita-SOUL administration. These behaviours can be positive or negative. Both will help the Verita-SOUL to take appropriate action.
We do not advise this to happen as it will not only be financially expensive but also be of no use for the child and parents. As children are need time to adjust to a new place and must be given time to learn and practice the skills. However, upon the request of the parents we offer a facility for one day as a “guest child”.
Yes, a record shall be kept for each attendance.
Yes. Since we live in a heterogeneous world and our children are to be exposed to the world where there are people of different age groups and backgrounds, we give exposure to children in the same manner in a session. In one class students of different age groups and backgrounds sit together and learn. We believe that different aged group people learn from each other’s experiences and behaviours.
