The senior students participate in awareness programs i.e. visits to hospitals, paper recycling, education of the under-privileged, hygiene in villages, and so on. A number of sports are played in the school and give the students an opportunity to express their individual talent. Drama, Performing Arts, Arts and Design, Debating and Music form a significant part of the curriculum Ö

A major landmark decision has been taken by the School management, proposing the inclusion of the physically and mentally handicapped children into the mainstream of school life. This contributes to a strong sense of community life, so characteristic of the school. In other words, children belonging to every strata of society are given the opportunity to study here. The school does not in any way, discriminate on the basis of race, colour, religion, sex, caste or creed, in the implementation of its admission policy.
