Pallavan is located on a sprawling 10 acres campus located on the banks of the river Kali Sindh. The campus has been designed and landscaped by world class architects with experience in blending 21st century materials with the local cultural heritage and styles. The campus will also become a green campus in a phased manner. We plan to include features like rain water harvesting, use of solar energy. Spaces for visual and performing arts, pottery, engineering drawings, activity rooms, open air amphi theatre, sculpture, conference rooms have been planned

Pallavan Jhalawar, which is a co-educational school for children, started classes from July 2008 and received a very enthusiastic response from the parents. Two new classes will be added in the academic year starting April 2010. From pre- Nursery to class V. We plan to make this a full fledged school from K to 12.

It will be a school with cutting edge educational practices and technology, rooted in Indian culture and traditions.

Mission Statement:.
The mission is to transform the school education landscape of India through the promotion of professional standardization, setting up excellent schools and the development of teacher training.

Aims and Objectives:
To provide an international quality educational institute. This is a unique project aiming to combine the entire education process including research, training and teaching. The institutions will provide world-class facilities and promote the latest theories of educational practice from anywhere in the world.
 
     
  Planning/ Reporting  
 
  • Each child has an IEP. This is an individual educational plan which is based on the needs of each child and shared with the parents.
  • All planning and reporting happens on the basis of this IEP.
 
 

School-Community Partnership
 
 
  • We view every school as a community resource, and every community as a resource of the school.
  • Pallavan will be a nodal hub for schools spread across the region.
 
     
 
Role of Teachers
 
 
  • The role of teachers will be more complex and demanding.
  • The teacher will be more of a coach, motivator and co-explorer with her students and facilitate learning.
  • Essential to the process of facilitation will be the teacher’s ability to link the appropriate set of interactions with the individual learning styles and interests of each learner as well as with the profiles of the communities that the learners perceive themselves as being part of.
 
 
 
 
Holistic Learning
 
 
  • The school will emphasize education aimed at equipping children with skills, knowledge and understanding to help them deal with real life challenges and help them become active and participating members of society.
  • Emphasis will be on the four pillars of education, namely, learning to know, learning to do, learning to be, and learning to live together with others.
 
 
 
  What we want to achieve - The Joy of Learning  
 
  • We believe that each child should be engaged in the PROCESS of learning i.e. the joy of learning as opposed to learning for a test.
  • Learning for the joy of learning gives the students conceptual clarity and the ability to transfer theory into practical life
  • Hence for us competition is not the unhealthy pitting of one child to another but bettering the best within ones self!
 
     
 
Curriculum
 
 
  • Given the broad range of learning styles, interests, backgrounds, needs and aspirations of learners, the curricula, on one level, will be linked to the daily life of the learner but, on another level, push the learners to explore beyond the mundane aspects of their daily lives into undiscovered possibilities.
  • There will be a curriculum for both teachers and students – ‘all members should be in a learning mode’.
  • Besides the CBSE curriculum, the school will develop its own core curriculum that will focus on life skills, dignity, self-respect citizenship/civic education, pride in ones’ culture, language and heritage, values, human rights, sensitivity and respect for different viewpoints and living together harmoniously in a pluralistic world.
  • The fast evolution of today’s societies and more specifically of labour markets requires new skills from individuals. Besides the conventional academic choices, the school will offer a variety of choices to discover their interests and strengths. The school will give equal thrust to the development of skills alongside knowledge.
  • The curriculum content and pedagogical methods in the school would be designed to prepare children for skills and competencies and adulthood, ready and motivated to carry on learning throughout their lives. Some of the salient features of the curriculum:
  • Pallavan’s curriculum is competency based where each child will have the opportunity to excel in some of these competencies.
  • The curriculum will be based on the concept of ‘living in coherence with nature’.
  • It will aim for the social, physical, cognitive, spiritual, emotional, ethical and aesthetic development of students.
  • Pallavan’s curriculum will develop varied skills and competencies in the students – ability to understand different cultures, critical thinking, problem solving, communication, creativity and innovation skills, technology, multimedia and media literacy skills, collaborative and adaptive skills – taking into account different learning styles.
  • The curriculum will emphasize the 21st century skills and competencies by incorporating the latest advances in technology, concepts and ideas that not only meet the needs of the world as it is now, but also anticipate the future.
  • An important feature will be the exchange programmes for both students and teachers which will be an integral part of the curriculum to give them a global perspective and share best practices with other institutions.
  • Pallavan’s curriculum has been devised by incorporating best practices from different education systems.
 
     
  Internal Evaluation System  
 
  • The internal evaluation system has been designed so that no questions are merely taken from the questions mentioned after every chapter of the prescribed textbooks. Care will be taken to see that the evaluation process encourages independent thinking and encourages the student to do research. This is because ultimately a teacher tends to teach according to the examinations point of view of the.
