What We Do
Quality education is important for a students’ hope for a brighter future and develops his/her confidence that comes with being self-reliant. Following this principle, we at Akshar build a strong foundation that children need for an independent tomorrow.
While we work for their shining future, Akshar ensures the children enjoy their learning process. We work towards our students having a sense of belonging, developing intellectual curiosity, innate desire to pursue excellence. Most importantly, they develop voices to analyse, debate and find their place in the world.
From middle to senior level, our innovative teaching methods and various co-curricular activities bring about learning and a deep understanding of concepts.
Creating an atmosphere for sharing and helping each other forge an emotional bond amongst each other, with the Educators and the School. As a result, even the young adults having graduated years ago, remain deeply connected with the school, giving back for its continued success
Learning Beyond Classroom
There is limited learning beyond the classrooms, in our regular Government Schools, due to the availability of resources. Akshar fulfils this need for the children to express themselves, develop creativity and out-of-the-box thinking, all of it while having fun and enjoyment. The School has created some model clubs that fit our students’ varied interests. It is heartening to witness the children smiling and laughing exuberantly.
Theatre Club – ‘Junoon'
Abhinay aisa jo kirdar ko amar karde
Some of us are born to perform, others discover their talent on the way. Our Umang club provides a platform for the children to enact, emulate, develop confidence, and inspire others through various performances within the school and opportunities arising within Chandigarh City. Whether the children pursue acting as leisure or professionally, they end up developing an innate sense of freedom, confidence and effective communication skills.
Curriculum – Acting, Voice modulation, Listening, Body Language, Postures
Art and Crafts Club – ‘Qala'
Kala se apmi pehchan banao
Art and budding artists are an integral part of our ecosystem. Designing banners, and posters, for Akshar programmes, many of our children developed a passion for this incredibly creative field. Children are able to express themselves in ways, they never thought possible. Two of our star young girls Moni and Arti joined the prestigious Government College of Art to pursue their Undergraduate Studies, inspiring many more children to dream big – to draw, paint and create for fun and learning. The potential is immense, and opportunity available. The sky is the limit for our evolving artists.

Environmental Science Program – ‘Jigyasa’
Students resonate and learn better when it is experiential. Our Jigyasa program creates a platform where children can discover new interests in science and the environment.
