Basic Primary Education
BASIC PRIMARY EDUCATION
JMMS works towards the total all-round development of the children which includes physical, emotional, inter and intra personal development. Co-curricular activities like elocution, painting and dramatics develop the students’ aristic skills and self- confidence.
Art and Craft opens up the doors to developing a life supporting skill, especially for those children who are not academically inclined. Needle work, paper craft, knitting, sewing and stitching are some areas of training.
In our Loom Room – Reduce, Reuse, Recycle
JMMS staff underwent professional training in loom-work. Now children work on the Looms to make utility items like shoulder bags, durries, door mats, wall hangings, pot-holders and key chains. Aware of conservation of resources, a lot of practical applications happen in our Loom Room. Tailors’ waste, used polythene bags, discarded clothes – all these get transformed to utility items.
Our students participate in several Inter-School Events and return with accolades. Several prizes and recognition have come our way in competitions in Hand-writing, Essay Writing and Fancy Dress. We also regularly participate in Hope Marathon, Walkathons and Environment Protection events.
JMMS support extends beyond the Founder’s vision of providing Primary Education. During their final year in JMMS, it is ensured that all the students appear for the entrance tests of reputed mainstream schools and those who secure admission are supported all the way through their secondary education. At present our School Leavers are continuing their studies in Doon Valley Public School, Jaswant Modern Secondary School , St.Joseph’s Academy , St. Thomas College and Mussorie Girls’ School, Olympus High and PYDS Learning Academy.
