Special care for a child is a motto which has been set in the school curriculum. Every teacher adopts a child whom she thinks she can guide, understands and provide the needed emotional, moral and educational support.


We introduced day boarding facility in 2009 and this initiative was highly appreciated by the parents. It proved to be very helpful to those students who need extra attention in their academic development. Teachers give their best and guard the students in the right direction as per the pattern of school education.


Many children are becoming overweight and obese. Causes of obesity in children include unhealthy food choices, lack of physical activity and eating habits. A balanced diet is important to maintain health. No single food will provide all the essential nutrients that our body needs to be healthy and function efficiently. A balanced diet should contain protein, fats carbohydrates and fiber in the form of fresh vegetables and fresh fruits, all in the right measure, and of course fresh drinking water.It is essential for a healthy body and a healthy mind. Fruit time in the morning is a small step for healthy living. You are what you consume!

The school lays great emphasis on physical fitness of students and tries to provide facilities for games, sports and recreational activities.

It is of utmost importance to impart health education to our children so that they can become fit and confident individuals.

1. All parents must ensure that children:

  • Maintain personal hygiene such as trimming of nails/ hair and stay neat and clean.
  • Exercise regularly. Have a balanced diet.
  • Must avoid consumption of eatables from roadside vendors and kiosks.
  • Be immunized regularly against prescribed infections and diseases (Chicken pox, cholera, measles, whooping cough and jaundice) must observe the prescribed period of quarantine.

2. Students suffering from infectious diseases such as conjunctivitis, dermatitis and scabies etc. should not be sent to school until they have fully recovered and are fit to attend classes. The same must be certified by a qualified doctor in the form of a medical certificate to be sent to the class teacher.

3. Any special medication or ailment must be brought to the notice of all concerned along-with supporting medical documents.

Project – Teach a man to fish (Srijan)

The school enterprise challenge (SEC) is an International Award Programme for schools around the world. It is a challenge for the students to learn new things, face problems and find solutions, achieve goals and contribute their best to the society. Our school is also participating in this project which aims to set up a real school business model. The significant educational value behind this project is to inculcate thought process of recycling things in the minds of the students. Also helps in skill development.
