The academic year is of 12 months duration from April to March. It excludes 2 term holidays. One for 40 days in May & June & another for 15 days in Jan.
A student is granted promotion based on the results of the assessments and also his or her general progress. Each assessment is given credence for deciding the final result. A minimum attendance of 85 % of the total working days of the academic year is mandatory for promotion. Results declared at the end of the year are final and will not be reconsidered.
Every child is assigned to one of the four Houses for the duration of his or her school life. Houses also act as teams for social outreach initiatives and interactions with economically less advantaged and differently abled children from our neighbourhood and the city. A discipline code is operative, through which students get positive or negative House points on behaviour related to uniform, hygiene, cleanliness, submission of homework, or for being a buddy to a new student. The honour system supports the philosophy of the school and the values of society as a whole. House points contribute towards the House Championship at the end of the year. Belonging to Houses gives the children an opportunity to imbibe leadership qualities, sensitivity to others and develop team skills.
The Student Council is a student-led governing body comprising students elected by the entire school. It is led by the School Captain, Senior and Junior Vice-Captains, the Sports Captain and four House Captains and Beyond Academics Captain, who are elected office bearers. Being a part of this structure imposes discipline as well as gives a taste of democratic functioning and political responsibility to children, becoming a fertile training ground for the student voice to be heard.
Students are given opportunities to develop and present their skills and talents through active participation in weekly Assemblies. An additional assembly may be called for a specific event, lecture, or demonstration. Students also assemble for the celebration of national days, festivals, cultural presentations and recognition of achievement and awards, producing a feeling of togetherness, national and school pride among the student body. Attendance is compulsory for all.
Inter-house competitions, which includes Music, Dance, Speech and Drama, Art and Craft happens on month to month basis. Students participate in quizzes, recitation, elocution, declamation, storytelling, word games, and debates, improving performances and setting challenging goals. These are held during school year, and individual points gained by winners contribute to the overall House points and the self-esteem of participants.
Further, intra- and inter-school competitions hosted by the school and events like Annual Day, Sports Day and Awards Day give children a sense of belonging and working in a team, secure in their individual abilities to contribute to it, and in an atmosphere of healthy competition with their peers.
