Takshila believes in the infinite capacity of the young minds to absorb knowledge from the surroundings they live in .One of the reasons why children do not like going to school is because they do not find the physical environment interesting.
With this in mind all Takshila Schools are being designed as buildings with learning aids-a concept developed by leading school architects, designers, educationist and psychologists.
Known as BaLa( Building as learning Aids), this is a holistic thought process which envisions the total physical environment of the school as a teaching tool.
Takshila School has been conceived as a physical environment connected to the way children learn. Thus, the school building and the campus itself will serve as an open classroom with hands on activities to engage children in a variety of learning experience.
Spatial Designs, simple toys based on theories of physics & chemistry, arithmetical and geometrical puzzles embedded in walls and walk-ways, and mapped play areas help children understand and grasp concepts with the aid of teachers.
Parents will be encouraged to participate in this learning process.
