The space element (akasha in Sanskrit, meaning not visible, space, or sky) is the most subtle of the five elements. Space gives rise to the other elements—air, fire, water, and earth. It is space that makes everything possible. All things arise in it and return to it. Sharda World School’s unique holistic learning curriculum unite together in the space element. In every class of their academic journey, a student experiences the learning trajectory of elements that is most relevant at that stage. The integration of the space element with the other elements is seen as essential for achieving balance, harmony, and holistic growth for every student. By recognizing the interconnectedness and interdependence of these elements, every student will achieve a state of equilibrium within themselves and in their environment.
With over 85% of brain development taking place by the age of 6, we at
SWS believe in providing
appropriate care and stimulation of the brain in the early years in order to ensure healthy
brain development and growth. This stage depicts the free-flowing nature of the water
and the same is depicted in their day-to-day activities.
During this phase we focus on providing flexible, play-based, activity-based, and inquiry-based learning, comprising of alphabets, languages, numbers, counting, colours, and shapes. We also ensure they are spending a lot of time-solving puzzles & problems thereby stimulating logical and problem-solving thinking. Drawing, painting, and other visual art, craft, drama, puppetry, music, and movement helps in imbibing creativity and visualization. It also includes a focus on developing social capacities, sensitivity, courtesy, ethics, teamwork, and cooperation.
One of the key features of this element is its natural healing quality, the same reflects in the learning environment that we provide for this age group. The kids are free from any negative elements this allows optimal development of the brain during this crucial period.

The next element that is introduced to the students is the Earth
element. Being the strongest
element, it provides an individual with the stability that is required both mentally as well
physically. When it’s in alignment, students feel grounded and secure, both physically and
emotionally. By mastering this element our students create a strong foundation both
and mentally which helps progress through the next stages of development without any
from their path.
As this phase acts as the foundation for the rest of life we try to instil the right set of behaviours that help them become the strong support pillars of this great country. Empathy, courtesy, cleanliness, the spirit of service, respect for public property, responsibility, equality, and justice are some of the qualities which are imbibed during this phase. And this is being done by engaging them in various group activities and projects in which they have to collaborate with other students and some cases with individuals outside the school environment. We also conduct various outdoor activities which give them exposure to the external world and help them understand, accept the rich diversity which exists around the world.
Strong foundation is laid with focus on yoga, meditation, lesson and stories from the holy Gita and Ramayan. Nutrition also plays an important part in the development of the body and because of that, we ensure all the students receive proper nutrition during the school itself.

Once the students have mastered the earth element in the previous phase we
introduce them to the
Air element. Air travels in all directions and is responsible for the movement of consciousness,
therefore if an individual has not mastered this element the consciousness will be wandering in
all directions. The Air element acts as a bridge between materiality, spirituality and is
associated with intelligence and creativity, the same is experienced by our students in this
When the kid is giving direction to his/her energy they are building a vision for themselves. And in order to help them build this, we try to provide them a 360-degree view of all the fields in which they can build their career. There are no hard separations between the subjects like arts & sciences and between curricular and extra-curricular activities or between vocational and academic streams. We also conduct industrial visits and workshops, summer camps, and community services so that our students can relate their goals with a bigger picture thereby making them more passionate about it. Students with an entrepreneurial instinct in them are given a platform to share their ideas which can be nurtured in their senior years at the school.
Facilities like Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Language, Computer, Robotics Laboratory, Library, Music and Dance Rooms, Indoor Games Room, Lawn Tennis Court, Basketball, Volleyball court, Cricket Pitches, Football Ground and their inclusion in the school curriculum helps in providing the flexibility & complete ecosystem which resonates with the philosophy of air. All in all, the Air element prepares students to build a sound base for academic excellence.

The last element that the students will be mastering before graduating
the school is the fire
element. The element fire represents the heat that is generated within the human body
the consumption of resources from nature. The nature of the fire is to move upwards by
the fire with in you. This helps in getting that additional energy to move forward.
Identification, recognition, immortality, longevity, courage and power are the motivations
the fire element. If there is an imbalance in this element one might struggle with a lack of
self-esteem, anger, and perfectionism. By balancing this element, we ensure that our
feel more energetic, confident, productive, and focused.
The students who have mastered the fire element can work relentlessly and absorb a large amount of information. The schedule of these students is created in such a manner so that optimal utilization of their time takes place. This is complemented by the environment which provides a distraction-free environment that helps them to work on their goals or vision which they have developed in the water phase.
In order to balance this element, kids are supposed to enter into selfless service and because of this, we assign certain roles which help in developing their leadership, entrepreneurship and critical and design thinking skills. This also brings into the picture their time management skills, which are essential for their examinations as they are going to handle multiple roles going into the corporate world. Plus, they also exercise the activity of passing the baton to the next generation. Which is a replication of a similar scenario that they are going to be performing in their professional career.
