Understanding the importance of Agriculture & encouraging the students to consider agriculture as a career.
To develop an integrated curriculum that connects different areas of study by cutting across subject matter lines and emphasizing unifying concepts and also allowing the students to engage in relevant, meaningful activities that can be connected to real life.
We being a part of Peace International School believe in interdisciplinary approach in teaching different subjects. One of the projects we launched this academic year 2015-16 was GO GREEN project with the help of “SEED” Mathrubhumi. We also received ample support and guidance from the “Krishi Bhavan” Kuruvattor, Kozhikode.
