Endeavours and Initiatives  


Education has been rightly called the panacea of all ills and is the most decisive factor in the progress of an individual and of a nation.At the same time, the world is witnessing an unprecedented advancement in the field of science, technology and information  and the need is to keep abreast with the changes  and development occurring in and around the world. It is therefore, unavoidably essential to develop innate   and  inborn  potential of  every  child  to  meet  unforseen and  stringent challenges. In its quest  to foster  the all round personality of a child, the school undertakes various  endeavours and  activities  and  has  ventured  a  number  of initiatives.  The aim is to  develop  an  integrated life, strengthen character and inculcate sensitivity towards society.

As knowledge is available now-a-days at the click of a mouse and the learner seeks for a 'Knowledge  absorbing  society' rather  than  'Knowledge  gathering society', conventional teaching  has been  replaced  by dynamic, student centric, interdisciplinary, project based and digital teaching. To cope with the challenges of modern times, smart classrooms are introduced. Electronic Boards are installed in the  classrooms  and  e-teaching with  its  audio  and  visual  appeal  is helpful  in developing creative, constructive, competitive and confident students.





To unleash the immense reservoir of creative potential of students, a variety of co- scholastic  activities  are offered. A student selects  an activity of her/his  interest from the activities/Clubs assigned to a class. These skill classes nurture the innate and insatiable qualities  of a child, make learning  fun and impart essential skills useful in day to day life.
