Look no fur­ther for a cam­pus with green and tran­quil en­vi­ron­ment

As the res­i­dents of Delhi NCR are deal­ing with ever-in­creas­ing pol­lu­tion lev­els in the city, par­ents are wor­ried about the se­ri­ous risk this poses to young chil­dren in par­tic­u­lar.

The poor air qual­ity in­dex even af­fected nor­mal school­ing dur­ing its peak lev­els – from schools hav­ing to shut down tem­po­rar­ily to sus­pend­ing out­door ac­tiv­i­ties and sports. One school in Gur­gaon which is rel­a­tively less af­fected by the poor air qual­ity is Path­ways World School Aravali.

The cam­pus is si­t­u­ated on 34 acres of land on an el­e­vated, wooded site along the ma­jes­tic foothills of the Aravali hills. This not only en­sures a peace­ful en­vi­ron­ment, away from the the hus­tle and bus­tle of city, but also of­fers a scenic panorama across the hills. De­spite its unique lo­ca­tion, the school is only a few min­utes away from the Del­hiGur­gaon border.

The green en­vi­ron­ment at the Path­ways Aravali cam­pus aids in mit­i­gat­ing the ef­fects of pol­lu­tion. In fact, the school cam­pus has re­ceived the LEED-EB Plat­inum cer­ti­fi­ca­tion for its green de­sign by the United States Green Build­ing Coun­cil.

The school, which of­fers the In­ter­na­tional Baccalaureate (IB) pro­gramme, of­fers flex­i­ble op­tions to stu­dents — day board­ing, week board­ing, and term board­ing. The week board­ing sys­tem has re­ally caught the at­ten­tion of par­ents from Delhi NCR, as it gives stu­dents the op­tion to go home on Fri­day evenings to spend the week­end with their fam­i­lies be­fore re­sum­ing school on Mon­day. This al­lows stu­dents to spend qual­ity time with their fam­ily ev­ery week­end, while en­joy­ing the ben­e­fits of a ro­bust board­ing school pro­gramme on the week­days, on the lush green cam­pus.

With the NCR re­gion grow­ing ex­po­nen­tially and suf­fer­ing from poor air qual­ity and an in­se­cure en­vi­ron­ment, the weekly board­ing op­tion pro­vided by Path­ways is a great al­ter­na­tive for par­ents.

It is es­pe­cially ben­e­fi­cial for work­ing or sin­gle par­ents. Par­ents can fo­cus on their work while chil­dren are free to get their own qual­ity aca­demic, sport­ing, and so­cial time with peers in a friendly en­vi­ron­ment.
