Roots-Intel ICT Joint Curriculum Initiative:
Ist initiative at Elementary Level in the WORLD by Roots and Intel.
RSS in a first of its kind initiative has customized a unique ICT curriculum for Grade 1-7 in collaboration with In-tel Education Pakistan.

This course has been created to help develop your child's technology literacy, critical thinking and collaboration skills. Through this initiative, Roots is preparing today's young people to flourish in the knowledge based economy of the 21st century. Our goal is to help students develop the higher order thinking skills they need to realize their full potential. Roots was the 1st school to introduce ICT as a compulsory subject in the school curriculum thus, promoting ICT as a common denominator to bridge digital divide. Building of lifelong skills is a part of the roots experience. The Intel-Roots School System Skills for Success Curriculum is designed to equip the students with computer tools and applications that are necessary to live and work in technology saturated world. It is bringing the future within reach for thousands of young rootsians through fun, interactive information and innovative activities. Teachers have to be empowered to be able to prepare the millennials 'the digital natives'.

In RSS all teachers are Intel certified and undergo numerous training courses for professional development. These courses go a long way in helping the classroom teachers to integrate technology all across the curriculum.

Roots Robotics Club Initiative:
Unleash the genius scientist in your child!

Roots robotics lab has created an environment for children of all ages to learn, explore and express themselves through various types of scientific and technological activities. With so many things to do, children can never claim to be bored. In labs, children learn robotics, programming, mind maths and game development, using lastest technology in a fun and meaningful way. Activities are focused on keeping child’s brain healthy and active.
Film & Drama Making Club Initiative:
Acting holds significance because it enriches the personality with confidence and courage. Taking acting lessons is surely the best way to hone your skills and talent whilst gaining experience of working with other talented fellows and building up your knowledge and skills. The main goals of this club are to develop self-confidence, to help students work effectively with others and to increase creative thinking and problem solving skills. This club explores the development of these skills through mime, speech, movement, and improvisation. A key value of film in education is that it is a leveler. With a book children may think they don't have the level of experience needed or feel they aren't bright enough to talk about it but immediately have confidence talking about film because it is something they have engaged with already. Even children with severe learning difficulties and disabilities who struggle with any kind of academic curriculum can often relate to film since film is a universal language.
