The BIG Programme
BIG stands for Battle for Inclusive Growth. This programme aims at creating individuals or global citizens, who have been brought up, keeping in mind the Theory of Multiple Intelligences. Green Valley Academy(GVA) believes in inclusive growth of a child. We firmly believe that comprehensive growth of an individual relies on multiple factors and some of these, might even be beyond human understanding in the current times. It gives us pleasure in accepting that we renounce the old methods of assessing students merely on the basis of a few parameters. The BIG programme of GVA utilizes the Theory of Multiple Intelligences developed by Dr. Howard Gardner, Professor of Education at Harvard University. It suggests that the traditional notion of intelligence, based on Intelligence Quotient testing, is far too limited. Instead, Dr. Gardner proposes eight different intelligences to account for a broader range of human potential in children and adults. These intelligences are: Linguistic Intelligence, Logical-Mathematical Intelligence, Spatial Intelligence, Bodily-Kinesthetic Intelligence, Musical Intelligence, Interpersonal Intelligence, Intrapersonal Intelligence and Naturalist Intelligence.
This is enabled further by bringing international experts on board. These experts take workshops, seminars and lectures physically or online (as they are based all around the world). These are attended by students as well as their parents, since the entire environment around that student must be made conducive for growth. BIG initiative of GVA reflects the school’s commitment toward overall development of students. It also boilsters the will of providing international standards of education.
