Visual and Performing Arts
Learning and experiencing in the art class includes keen observation, developing visual and spatial abilities, reflection and experimenting. All the art work is usually displayed in the art room, where all the walls have display area. Artwork is also displayed in lobbies, corridors and the library where more viewership is possible.
Exposure to artists of past and present, visit to galleries and museums are also a vital part of child’s art education.
Our Fine Arts course is aimed at developing aesthetic sense in our students through various modes of visual expression. These encompass a wide range of practical exercises in making various artworks and enhancing their observation, imagination, creativity and artistic skills.
We ensure that our students are exposed to a variety of art material and techniques (painting, clay modelling and craft) from traditional to contemporary ones. In a fine arts class, the teacher plays a pivotal role and with our highly experienced art faculty the task becomes easier.
When it comes to performing arts, our students are offered a wide range to choose from :
- vocal music (Indian classical and light music)
- instrumental music (flute, guitar, tabla and keyboard)
- dance (classical, folk and contemporary styles)

Life Skills Programme
As per the new evaluation pattern of CBSE, Life Skills is one of the key indicators in judging the overall performance of students.
The objective of the Life Skills programme is to develop these Life Skills - creative thinking, critical thinking, empathy, coping with stress, coping with emotions, interpersonal relationships, communication skills, decision making skills, self awareness and problem solving.
Life Skills are essentially individual abilities that help to promote mental well being and competence in young people when they face the realities of life.
The school aims to inculcate these skills by organizing various sessions. These sessions would be a mix of activities, role plays, interactive discussions and simulations. This programme helps to inculcate self discipline, resistance to peer pressure and positive attitude in children. It also helps in strengthening parent-child relationship.
At The Cambridge International School, every possible effort is made to make our students eco-sensitive. We believe that worldly success and achievements do not have to come at the cost of Mother Earth.
Towards this initiative, the school lays emphasis on natural resource management by undertaking various activities like eco friendly building (solar power panels), planting saplings (school nursery), use of natural manure (compost pit), recycling paper, segregating waste and conserving water & electricity.
Our Interactive Nature Club seeks to inculcate social consciousness through various projects which are taken up by students. The nature club aims to create awareness among their peers, parents and their neighborhood to understand the importance of a clean and green environment. Our paper recycling unit is a step in this direction to judiciously Reduce, Reuse & Recycle paper.
Involving students in leadership activities is one of the most practical and helpful strategies for gaining the cooperation of students and increasing the value that they place on schooling.
School parliaments provide an opportunity for students to participate in the running of their school and is a vehicle for them to express their opinions and participate actively in decision making.
Students work together, under the guidance of a senior staff member, to improve school life.
The chosen leaders along with their teams help in the day to day governance of the school by participating in the cleanliness drive, maintaining discipline during assemblies & dispersal and organizing class programmes.
Promoting Civic Consciousness
We aim at making our students contribute to the world they live in.
The school has quality programmes wherein children will be made aware of civic issues like waste management, water management, better roads and public transport systems and how to deal with these issues. Regular guest lectures, field trips and projects are a part of the programme.
