Hayde Heritage Academy is a great example of a successful residential way of learning model with
boarding students both boys and girls enjoying this form of education. Children from all over the country and abroad enjoy their residential learning in this school located in the pristine foothills of Uttarakhand Himalayas.
The concept of residential learning provides students a distinct opportunity to connect and learn, both inside and outside of the classroom, alongside fellow classmates, staff, and faculty all while enjoying the conveniences and accommodations of living on-campus within the residence halls.
This age old Way of Learning: residential learning provides a context and model for students and
teachers to explore new ways of teaching and learning and provides experiential and context-
based learning which helps to develop students’ understanding and knowledge facilitating their
engagement with, and progress in, learning all the while the child is on campus.
Fewer distractions: It is a known and established fact that boarding school students can focus better on their studies because of limited television, video games, phones and other distractors like motorcycles and scooters rampant in Kotdwar. These young scholars usually perform better academically because they live in an environment that is conducive to learning. This was proved by our class 10 topper Saurabh Kumar from Bihar who was clearly an example of this fact.
Cultural Diversity: With the increasing intolerance in the world a boarding school like Heritage is a hot pot of cultures due to children coming over from all parts of the world like Moscow to Hyderabad. These students live and attend classes with people from a variety of cultures; therefore, they learn to appreciate and respect the differences in one another and live amicably.
Character Development: Being away from their doting parents boarding school students are known to graduate with exceptional character and demeanor. They reside in a community where traits such as honesty, respect and hard work are valued and emphasized. These pupils have a moral advantage.
Alternative Activities: Residing on campus boarding school students are often exposed to a wider range of activities like extra sports time to broaden their learning. They may participate in common sports and activities, such as football and music band, or less conventional ones, such as horse riding and archery. All these activities are part of the overall curriculum of Hayde Heritage. Thus there is Asheesh Kumar (from Gopulgunj, Bihar) playing nationals representing the state in Under 14 Basketball; Kamaldeep Tripathi(from Gopeshwar) and Chirag Rathi (from Delhi) members of the school basketball team, Kshetrimayum Chingkhei Meitei (from Manipur) reaching CBSE finals in Archery and Maksim Vashurin winning the WWF wildlife quiz for juniors as examples how life in boarding helped them to excel in various activities.
