Education with a holistic perspective is concerned with the development of every person’s intellectual, emotional, social, physical, artistic, creative and spiritual potentials.
Holistic Education is based on its attention to experiential learning, and the significance that it places on relationships and primary human values within the learning environment. It seeks to engage students in the teaching/learning process and encourages personal and collective responsibility.
Holistic Education focuses on both academic and non-academic areas. It provides the students with the full opportunity to develop the skills and values that they will need for life. Besides judging our students’ performance through assessment, we are also looking at other and broader measures of how well they do in education.
Since holistic education seeks to educate the whole person, there are some key factors that are essential to this type of education. The children are required to learn about:
- social literacy and emotional literacy
Last, curriculum also is derived from the teacher listening to each child and helping the child bring out what lies within oneself.
