At Aster, we aim to prepare our children for the future in the best possible way. Therefore, we have introduced entrepreneurship module for our students from Grade 1 onwards as it is a critical part of ensuring success in a rapidly changing world. This module teaches children the basics of entrepreneurship, business, and finance in a hands-on manner. This project based learning (PBL) program gives children the opportunity to learn first-hand how to start and operate their own business. Working individually, the young entrepreneurs start, fund, and run their own company.
We believe that school gardens are a wonderful way to use the schoolyard as a classroom, reconnect students with the natural world and the true source of their food, and teach them valuable gardening and agriculture concepts and skills that integrate with several subjects, such as math, science, art, health and physical education, and social studies, as well as several educational goals, including personal and social responsibility. In this module we have introduced garden-based teaching methodologies that addresses different learning styles and intelligences.
We offer Graphic designing as a module from Grade 4 onwards. As we strongly believe in preparing our world for the practical world. This module teaches the students how to communicate ideas or messages. It utilizes images, colors, and words by teaching us computer skills and design software applications: Photoshop, Illustrator, and InDesign.
We have introduced cooking as a module at Aster because we strongly believe that cooking with children in schools promote the lifetime skill of healthy eating at a young age. A kitchen is a learning lab for children that can involve all of their senses. While kneading, tossing, pouring, smelling, cutting, and feeling foods they have fun and learn without being aware of it. The best way to give nutrition knowledge is through experiential learning or hands-on activities associated with food preparation that involves handling food and cooking equipment. In the cooking module at Aster, our students learn lifetime skills through practicing basic math skills such as counting, weighing, measuring, tracking time; they also gain social skills by working together and communicating in the kitchen.
At Aster, we strongly believe that educating students in STEAM subjects prepares them for life, regardless of the profession they choose to follow. STEAM teach students how to think critically and how to solve problems — skills that can be used throughout life to help them get through tough times and take advantage of opportunities whenever they appear.
An important part of STEAM educational approach at Aster is that students are not just taught the subject matter but they are taught how to learn, how to ask questions, how to experiment and how to create.
Drama gives children opportunities to explore, discuss and deal with difficult issues and express their emotions in a supportive environment. It enables them to explore their own cultural values and those of others, past and present. It encourages them to think and act creatively, thus developing critical thinking and problem-solving skills that can be applied in all areas of learning. Through drama, students at Aster, are encouraged to take responsible roles and make choices – to participate in and guide their own learning.
