A Day At Deepanam

Morning Circle

During the start of the day, all the groups within their class gather in a circle to sit silently followed by sharing.
This encourages students to reflect on their experiences at home and at school. The older students have time for journaling and group discussions once a week, which promotes self-reflection.

Mantra Chanting

As you walk along the classrooms of Deepanam , you will be greeted by sweet sounds of sanskrit mantras chanted by students in their class morning circle

Academics Based Learnings

From an early age students are offered subjects like Languages (English, Tamil and French), Mathematics, Science, History, and Geography (through projects). Recently we have added STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Mathematics) to our curriculum.

Through literature and history we develop emotional intelligence, intuition, inquiry, reason and self-reflection.

Through geography we look at us and our place in the world not in the spatial sense but also conservation of natural resources.
