October 17, 2022 – XSEED, the Singapore-based disruptive education programme that focuses on instilling critical thinking and problem-solving skills as part of their school curriculum, is on a five-city tour of Punjab, which is part of the brand’s 100 district tour across India. XSEED will be meeting teachers, principals, school owners and parents in Amritsar, Ludhiana, Jalandhar, Kapurthala and Patiala, introducing them to its unique and comprehensive programme designed to empower ‘thinking children’ to become leaders of tomorrow. 

XSEED is a K-8 academic program that helps schools to deliver the curricula of all major boards (including CBSE, ICSE and other boards) via proven research-based teaching methodologies that use interactive resources as well as books. XSEED makes concepts interesting for children, focusses on the thinking aspects, and ensures rigour in practice. The teaching toolkit combines scientific teaching, customised content, and user-friendly technology to provide an all-round and an engaging learning experience from Nursery right up to Class 8. 

XSEED kids have an edge over the others because of the hands-on experience and reflective analysis, modern texts, and application workbooks that focus on problem solving practice rather than on mugging up textbooks. The skill-focused assessment provides personalized feedback to every child. 

“Children today are living in a fast-paced, tech-driven world that requires them to be armed with a certain set of skills if they want to excel. Curiosity, confidence, the ability to reflect and higher order thinking skills are among the most crucial skills that our kids need to master from an early age if they want to do well in the 21st century. The XSEED programme is specifically tailored to fulfil these needs. We are delighted to be here in Punjab, a state that has shown great interest in our integrated curriculum which is why we are here!” said Ashish Rajpal, founder, XSEED and Harvard alumnus. 

Since its launch in 2014, XSEED has served 2 million children in over 220 districts and more than 20 states across India and has been deployed in eight countries including India, Philippines, Singapore, and the Middle East.

“XSEED has been a gamechanger for our school. The vision of the school is to ‘nurture world citizens’, hence we switched to the XSEED methodology. We have seen a marked difference in the involvement of our children since then. Our classrooms have an energy and our children have flourished. The results are there for everyone to see. It is the fundamentals of application and how-to-think that rarely get measured but which make the real difference,” Said Kirti Sharma, Principal, Jesus’ Sacred Heart School, Ludhiana.

Starting with Amritsar on October 17, the XSEED tour will move to Ludhiana on Oct 18, Jalandhar on Oct 19, Kapurthala on Oct 20 and conclude at Patiala on Oct 21. On October 18, XSEED will host a conference in Ludhiana, which will see the attendance of 100 school owners and have a school leadership session by Mr. Rajpal.
