Child Centered Approach:
Noor believes in using child centered approach to provide ample chance to our students to grow in their own individual way at their individual pace. We practice this policy especially at our school classes that do not appear in board exams and we try to help them in acquiring creative skills. The child-centered approach is an application within the field of child development that allows the child to make his/her own choices and establish his/her own ideas towards promoting competent communication and learning. The approach focuses on the concept of allowing more freedom to the child, giving them the ability to use their own individual approach.
This type of child development encourages kids to explore their interests and ask their own questions. It focuses on developing a child’s unique sense of creativity not just through artistic expression, but in how he/she learns new concepts and solves problems. The technique dictates that teachers, instead of telling the child exactly what he/she has to do, should observe more passively, giving the child the space to learn and grow in his or her own way.
Activity Based Teaching Method:
Activity method is a technique adopted by a teacher to emphasize his or her method of teaching through activity in which the students participate rigorously and bring about efficient learning experiences. It is a child-centered approach. It is a method in which the child is actively involved in participating mentally and physically. Learning by doing is the main focus in this method. Learning by doing is imperative in successful learning since it is well proved that more the senses are stimulated, more a person learns and longer he/she retains.
Education includes everything that shapes the human personality. Co-curricular activities are integral part of education as these help to develop the student’s character. These also develop a sense of healthy competition and create high moral values in them.
A part from learning number of useful skills; such activities provide chance to the students to display their talents and potentialities in informal environment. Noor has taken many outstanding steps to cultivate different skills in the student’s right from the beginning. Following are some of the main activities:
- Celebration of National Day

For success in exams good writing expression is very important. So to beautify and bring excellence in writing of students we arrange regular hand writing classes by expert calligrapher.
Administration of Noor arranges weekly seminars for students of literature on varied topics. Through these seminars students’ communication skills are developed.
Workshops for Teachers:
Noor’s unique quality is that it is led by a professional educationist and an expert teacher trainer i.e. Mr. Malik Abdush Shakoor. To refresh and learn new things about education and their own subjects, Noor helps teachers to recognize and flourish in their field. In this context different workshops and training sessions are held throughout the year to improve the quality of teaching learning process.
