Why CCIS


House and Club Culture


By setting up a House System, we suspect that strong house loyalty and a sense of fun and friendly competition will capture the school atmosphere.

The House system is the key to the ethos and culture at CCIS and provides each member of our community with a sense of belonging. Each student is placed in one of four houses, and is supported by a well-balanced programme of competitions and activities led by our Heads of House.

There are also a wide variety of clubs which students join and work as a team. These clubs give the students a sense of direction and focus to work.

The House Competition promotes a keen but good-natured rivalry between House teams to see who will win the House Trophy each year. Points towards this prize accumulate from the various sporting and cultural/academic competitions that are held throughout the year.

The clubs are Literary club, Drama Club, Dance and Music Club, Art Club, Eco Club, Social Service Club, Sports Club.

Global Exposure

Welcoming new ideas and fresh perspective, the school hosts international teachers and interns and encourages international student exchanges.

Students are also encouraged to put forward their ideas in constructive ways and to interact with students from other international schools through projects and collaboration.

The school has proved, over these years that motivation through academics and extracurricular activities creates confident, compassionate and intelligent global citizens of tomorrow. Like all good schools, no matter how old, CCIS never stands still. It melds the best of the past with the challenges of the present.


Activity Based Development

Cultural activities and games are an essential part of the curriculum. Inter-House and Inter-School cultural activities such as Debates, Dramatics, Elocution and Team Games Like, Basketball, Volleyball, Karate, Lawn Tennis, Skating, Football, Hockey, Yoga, Physical Education, Music, Art, Dancing, Computers, Personality Development with Moral Value Education, Variety of Handicraft and Self Development Workshops, promote a sense of loyalty and healthy competition.

The purpose is to cultivate a childs confidence, creativity, self esteem, ambition, knowledge, physical endurance and sense of self achievement. In effect making a child far better equipped to face the world and its challenges by developing his personality in its totality.


LEADERSHIP

  • CCIS is preparing students to become leaders in shaping a better, more sustainable future, and we recognise that skills in both leadership and teamwork are vital. From the youngest child on campus to the oldest, each student has age-appropriate opportunities to explore and develop these skills through all aspects of the learning programme.
  • From Prefects, Club captains, House Captains, to Student Councils, Head Boy and Head Girl, students are elected by their peers to provide leadership and guidance in the school community. Ambassadors work with the counsellors to help ensure that other students transition well both in and out of school and are happy during their time there.
  • Activities such as Model United Nations, International interaction and exchanges give students the opportunity to put forward their ideas in constructive ways and to interact with students from other international schools. All these activities, and more, ensure that CCIS students get plenty of experience in leadership.

Teaching Techniques

In the changing world, where education is evolving every moment and so is learning, it is time to place the “Child is the Curriculum” in a fresh perspective.

Every learner is unique and has his/her own way of acquiring knowledge, attitude, values and skills. Experiential learning, with real life associations and scope to generalize learning, to be able to solve problems,make decisions, forge constructive and meaningful relationships, communicate effectively, etc. are some of the skills that learners need to acquire, to be successful in life.
