The School has well equipped science laboratories based on the three streams
Learning by doing can be achieved only by doing experimentation. Science education and teachers agree that laboratory work is indispensable to the understanding of science. Our students gain practical experience in laboratories to support and strengthen theoretical knowledge. They experience the pleasure of discovery, increase creativity, understand scientific working methods and higher order thinking skills, as well as learn to handle equipment and apparatus. With scientific knowledge that applies to their daily life, student becomes more empowered to design outcomes and impact their environment.“Experiment is the sole source of truth. It alone can teach us something new; it alone can give us certainty” – Henri Poincare.
Educational researchers have found that there is a strong correlation between reading and academic success. Children who read are more likely to get better grades, are creative and imaginative, comprehend ideas faster, have better concentration, develop a vast vocabulary, as well as have richer emotional life. They tend to be sensitive and demonstrate greater sense of responsibility. Our library is treasury of books for children of all ages. Covering a wide range of subjects in fact and fiction, we consider it a priority to build in children a love and respect for books that will last them a lifetime. Our School library has around 25,000 books which include text books, reference books, encyclopedia, world book, reference books for various competitive exams, magazines, newspapers, pamphlets, photographs, etc. Students are allowed to do independent research work in the Library. Our library is the busiest place in our school.“For one who reads, there is no limit to the number of lives that may be lived; for fiction, biography and history offer an inexhaustible number of lives in many parts of the world, in all periods of time” – Louis L’ Amour
Today’s world runs on computers. Just about every aspect of modern life involves a compute in some way or another. Understanding different dimensions of computing is part of the necessary skill set for an educated person in the 21st century. Our students learn basic computing skills, graduating to complex functions as part of ICT in the core curriculum. Computing requires and develops capabilities in solving deep. multidimensional problems requiring imagination and sensitivity to variety of concerns. An increasing number of universities and employers see successful completion of computer science course as sign of academic well roundedness.
I think it’s fair to say that personal computers have become the most empowering tool we’ve ever created. They’re tools of communication, they’re tools of creativity, and they can be shaped by their users. – Bill Gates

BCG CENTRE FOR EDUCATIONAL DESIGN AND PUBLISHING
The BCG Centre for Educational Design and Publishing (CEDP) designs and publishes both curricular content and other print media, used by the schools of Bombay Cambridge Gurukul. It is headed by Ms. Ashvita Jacob. The inception of this Centre (then called Department of Curriculum Development and Planning) was in 1996 as part of the Chairman’s vision to provide learner centric material in the form of worksheets for students of Bombay Cambridge Gurukul. The name of the Department changed over the years signifying the change in the tasks too. The Centre has a staff that consists of Content Coordinators in the varied subject areas and Design Coordinators who work on the design and layout of the material.
