Features and Facilities

Classrooms

Classrooms are colourfully decorated to suit children's mentality. Lower classes are provided with grouped seating to instill team work approach in the children from an early age itself.

Smartboards

As part of Utilizing modern equipment and methods in the field of teaching, FGIS employs electronic smartboards in every classroom. These are large touch sensitive boards at the disposal of the teacher. Teachers can interact with the board either in the traditional blackboard way or via its smart interface. Lessons are converted to Powerpoint slides and taught through the smartboard. Inclusion of pictures, animations and sounds helps maintain students' interest and makes learning more fun-filled. Contents of the board could be saved on the computer if required, in order to continue in a future session. They could also be printed or emailed directly from the board itself.

A built-in resource library contains huge collection of pictures categorized under different titles. These could be displayed on the board and explained to the students. Most geometric tools (virtual) like protractor and compass are also part of the smart features.
