The Primary Section of Divine Intervention School includes six classes from KGI to Class IV. All classes are taught by dedicated confined teachers, each with their own special expertise, and a classroom assistant is also present in every class.

Timing

8:30 a.m. to 1:35 p.m. (12:05 for KGI to Class I) (New timing to be confirmed)

Subjects

The standard curriculum is followed in every class for English, Maths, Science, Social Science and Mizo. These are supported by a range of additional tools and resources.

Spoken English is cultivated using a variety of innovative techniques including phonics and the Cambridge English course, under the supervision of British teacher Miss Joanna. The Cambridge English system prepares students for IELTS and similar exams that they might take in the future.

Hindi is introduced informally from the earliest age, and is taught formally from Class II onwards.

Singing happens on a daily basis in every class, and systematic music classes are taught from Class II onwards by Miss Joanna, including staff notation and tonic solfa.

Colouring, drawing and CCA classes provide opportunities to be creative. Students have many opportunities to showcase their talents in a variety of activities and competitions.

The national anthem and Indian pledge are taught and recited regularly in all classes.

Spiritual Formation

All classes gather together for morning devotion on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Class devotions are held on other days. Regular prayer, Bible reading and Bible memory verses are encouraged from the earliest age.

Assessment

From Class I onwards, class tests take place every week. For each subject, there are two Unit Exams in June and November, followed by a Final Unit Exam in March. Another Unit of assessment is based on the activities and CCA conducted throughout the year. Class tests, Unit tests, attendance record and ongoing assessment all contribute to the child’s final grade at the end of the year.
