However, we believe firmly that education does not come with textbooks rather we have to fine- tune young minds to grow a natural inquisitiveness towards enquiry, research, logical-thinking and conclusion so as to heighten their spirit of true knowledge-seeking venture.
We provide extra care and attention to weaker students.
We encourage our students to take part in various co- Curricular activities, so as to hone their creative abilities and other soft-skills too. We organize Cultural Programmes on National Days like 26th January, 15th August, and 2nd October as well as on Teacher’s Day, Children’s Day, etc. We celebrate our Foundation-Day on 14th May every year. The ‘Annual Sports Day’ is organized on 14th November each year.
We also appreciate our students in enjoying festivals like Holi, Diwali, Id, Rakshabandhan, Chirstmas, etc.; so, as to breed the feeling of unity and brotherhood among them. Quizzes and Elocutions are organized in Classes. Rangoli, Mehndi, Drawing & Crafts Competitions are also organized from time to time.
We also put our students into physical exercises like PT, YOGA, Sports, etc. to keep them fit. We also take our students to Educational Tours/ Excursions to Historically and Culturally important Destinations like Varanasi, Allahabad, etc.
We arrange intra-school students’ activities under Four House Systems- viz. RED, GREEN, BLUE & YELLOW House. We also encourage our Students to take part in various Interschool Competitions.
