Introduction

  1. Introduction

Mercy Education Campus is striving to produce competent balanced personalities empowered by knowledge, skills and attitude.

In the present context, youths in their teenage involve in various types of misbehaviors such as drug addiction, sexual misconduct and addiction to pornography etc. It is believed that these kinds of misbehaviors emerge and spread rapidly in the society mainly because of unsafe home environment, influence of social media and ineffective execution of teaching and learning process in schools. As a result of this pathetic situation immorality and mental and physical hazards grow among youth in an increasing trend. And thereby young generation is found unproductive to the country compared to previous generations. Mercy Education Campus believes that valuable citizens cannot be produced only through   formal education, but through comprehensive and inclusive programs aimed at paving the way for the young generation to lead a decent life.

Therefore, MEC has designed all its programs related to personality development of students in a way that comprises fundamental components of development needed to produce emotionally balanced personalities;

  1. Educational development
  2. Social and Emotional development
  • Physical development
  1. Moral development
  2. Vocational skill Development

To achieve all the above aspects, following three interlinked departments, with reasonable degree of authority and autonomy, are functioning in MEC.

  1. Department of Formal Education
  2. Department of Moral Education
  3. Department of Professional and Vocational Education

Educational Development

The main outcome expected from educational development is that every student should have enriched with appropriate competencies at each growth stage of their life.Programs for educational development are carried out through the Department of Formal Education which consists of formal schools for boys and girls. The formal school of Mercy Education Campus, which is a bilingual school, has classes from Pre-grade to G.C.E. A/L. However, the medium of instruction for A/L students is Tamil. The school follows the national curriculum and prepares students for local G.C.E. O/L and A/L exams. Streams available for advanced level are Bio science, Physical science, Engineering Technology and Bio-system Technology.

Physical development

Children join pre-school during their crucial stage of growth; early part of childhood and continue their studies of secondary level until later part of adolescence. During the process of child development children should be provided with sufficient, nutritious meals and physical activities. MEC, having understood the importance of fine and gross motor skill development, provides students with nutritious and balanced diet to ensure their physical growth and fitness according to a well-scheduled weekly meal menu. Further, provisions are made available for the students to engage in various types of physical activities such as morning exercise and games (football, volleyball, netball, karate, cricket, badminton etc…).

Social and Emotional development

Several activities are carried out in the school and hostel for students to develop their social and emotional skills and inculcate human values in their minds. Opportunities are provided for them during their hostel and school life to communicate with others in a respectable manner, develop empathy for others, establish and sustain relationships, resolve conflicts, gain confidence and reach goals. Moreover, sessions are held for students to enhance skills and attitude to handle stress and persevere through difficult times in their lives.

Vocational Skill Development

Though education and all other facilities are made available proportionately equal for all students, individual talents and performances differ from student to student and this reflects in their examination results as well. Therefore, recognizing individual differences, Mercy Vocational Training Centre, which is a subsidiary of Mercy Education Campus, has been arranged to offer vocational skill development programs as an alternative career path for school leavers who attain relatively lower results in their G.C.E. (O/L) examinations.
