This statement encapsulates one of our major objectives. TS Eliot asked “Where is the knowledge we have lost in information?” A key skill in an age when we are constantly bombarded with information and pseudo-information is the ability to sift the evidence and come to our own conclusions. The Little Flower approach to learning encourages the development of this skill, not just because the curriculum demands it but because survival can depend upon it.
Little Flower methodology concentrates first on the student’s aptitudes, then on the skills and knowledge s/he needs to acquire. Traditional education tends to value a limited range of knowledge and skills but more recent research suggests that intelligence is not unitary but multiple. Little Flower aims to give students a broader, deeper, richer educational experience by recognizing each student’s strongest talents and building on them in order to ensure that all the areas of talent are developed.
If we recognize that individual students have different ‘intelligences’ it is logical to allow them to develop these different talents through individual projects. Well-organized classes frequently function like this. The fact that the project is the students themselves ensures that s/he work with a complete concentration which ensures that s/he remember what is learned: (This approach can be applied almost as easily to languages and mathematics as it can to so-called practical subjects)
Little Flower offers CBSE curriculum which is not only stimulating and relevant today but also tried, tested and accepted widely.
