We realize that our learners live in the world of wonderment; a sense of wonderment centred around questions on ‘How, when, why and what’ about everything and anything they see. This sense of wonderment is what keeps them young and helps them grow as thinking individuals.
To enable Delfites to think, to question the existing, to analyse situations critically, and above all, to sustain their originality, the school launched a continuum of interesting child-centric unique school programmes that widened their thinking aptitude.
HOTS through THOTS
Delfites play Single Player, Dual Player and Multi-Player games that challenge their thinking and problem solving aptitudes. No doubt, for many Delfites, it is one of their favourite periods. One can feel the stimulating and interactive environment that so deeply engages each Delfite; enhancing each child’s self-thinking process – Critical, Lateral and Creative. To add to the joy of learning, The Thinkology Class enhances the ‘Thinkabulary’ of students.
Transforming our ‘Classrooms’ into ‘Think Rooms’
Classrooms in our school are being transformed into ‘Think Rooms’. ‘Think Zones’ have been created within every classroom space with ‘Think lines’ that stimulate Delfites to think and respond. The programme also enhances the questioning skills of Delfites. Delfites of classes I- III work on Project Based Learning (PBL) assignments and are acquiring the 4 key 21st century skills- communication, creativity, critical thinking and collaboration. Considering the fact that thinking and inspiration are the two-lynchpin ideas behind any successful project implementation,
THINKSPIRATION statements are designed for each class.
Thinkline: The sun and water are always there around us. Then why doesn’t it rain all the time?
Multiple Responses by Delfites of Class III:

The think line in class II says-
