DEPARTMENT OF ENGLISHLanguage is a link that forges unity across the seas; and the art of communication is the language of leadership. The mission of the English Department is to educate students in the diverse voices and forms so that they can approach literature both critically and creatively in their written and verbal communication, by analyzing literary texts and genres, and considering the personal, aesthetic and contemporary forces that inform them and to develop their abilities to think critically and develop an informed position by encountering and creating a wide range of aural, oral and literary perspectives. Effective communication is of foremost importance. The communicative approach to teaching English is a shift away from passive teaching to active learning. Our curriculum places a considerable emphasis on interaction between the learner and the teacher on one hand, and among students themselves on other. We are proud to have produced hundred percent results in the Board Examinations since inception. Even more gratifying is the fact that a large number of students attain distinction and above. Department also actively and effectively contributes to the publication of the school magazine and plans to bring out newsletters. It’s the privilege of English Department that we are the pioneers in initiating and providing the platform to the budding orators in the entire South Gujarat region by organizing ‘Freedom Cup’ debate competition, that is one of the most coveted and prestigious competitions organized in Gujarat. Department takes initiative in planning for the in-service programmes for the teaching faculty. This will keep the facilitators updated with the latest methods and techniques of teaching English as foreign language. We are proud that our students compete and participate in various activities at state, national and international levels and won accolade and awards. The department aspires to gain even higher standards in the coming years.
