Forget History, Maths & Science, This Chennai School Will Teach You The Art Of Being Happy

by Meenu Katariya

Do you dream of a school where you are allowed to study what you find interesting? Where classrooms are much more than just monotonous spaces. And where you can break all barriers to explore and research new ideas.

Traditional Indian schools are known for their curriculum-based teaching focus just on knowledge acquisition, rather than development of skills and emotional intelligence.

But a change has been initiated. 

As reported by Inhabitat, a website dedicated to innovative designs, Riverbend School near Chennai is trying to flip the entire traditional idea of schooling. In the age of information technology, this school will be inspired by villages.

Looking forward to build better personal relationships, this school will be surrounded by a farmland, where students can indulge in farming, spend time with nature and inculcate a sense of happiness.

The architect of this school, Danish Kurani was inspired by a study which states that strong relationships are key to a happy life and villages tend to foster strong relationships.

Prepare yourself to be a part of a school where your day might start with sports like football, basketball, or even meditation, rather than a boring history, or maths lecture.

In classes, students will be taught what they find relevant and interesting rather than what the curriculum expects them to study. Dance, music, and arts will carry more importance than traditional subjects.

Have a new idea in your mind? This school offers chat labs and several other opportunities to explore the real you. Not just research, the school also plans to offer business insights to students within the campus.

There'll be no teachers, but there will be mentors and coaches who would guide and help students think independently.

And what about the exams? Well, the school doesn't plan to take tests based on curriculum. Students will be tested on their emotional intelligence, creativity and other such criteria.

Students might soon find themselves meditating and relaxing along waterside, rather than cramming the not so useful textbooks.

The construction of this school has begun and is scheduled to be completed by 2020.
