SDIS, being progressive school focuses on 8C’s
which are the core competencies that children should be able to develop along with education process.


The ability to engage constructively with society and to participate in the processes that sustain it - Children should be sensitive to the current events of the world around them to be able to understand and have an opinion on their rights, on the responsibility of government and the laws that protect them. School should not just talk about this in Social's studies but rather develop a sense of citizenship and love for country. SDIS commits to help young children become responsible, caring and contributing citizens.


“The ability to generate new ideas and to apply them in practice”

Critical Thinking

The ability to analyse information and ideas and to form reasoned arguments and judgments SDIS focuses more on critical thinking and creativity rather than information. Students should be data driven and not data-informed. Kids these days are in the middle of information explosions. They are bombarded with so much information online and even offline. They need to strengthen their critical thinking to know how to make use of these data, how to incorporate it correctly in his/her life and how to determine the truth from fallacy.


The ability to express thoughts and feeling clearly and confidently in a range of media and forms. Children should be able to communicate their thoughts and express their feelings well. They should also be allowed to express it not just in written and verbal form but also in other media like arts, dance, theatre etc.

Collaborative thinking

The ability to work constructively with others – Children are social beings and an important skill is for them to be able to work/play well with others. Bouncing off ideas with one another not only strengthens their social domain, but also encourages good communication and critical thinking.


Confidence is not something that can be learned like a set of rules; confidence is a state of mind.


Positive thinking, practice, training, knowledge and talking to other people are all useful ways to help improve or boost confidence in students. As students successfully complete tasks and goals, they develop their confidence.

Career Building

“Building a career is like mining gold”
It’s a process of thinking about student’s profession of future, developing new skills through education and experience and pursing new opportunities overtime.
