Sports and co-curricular activities provide students with seamless experiences for their holistic development. These activities are an extension of core educational and developmental experiences. Apart from enhancing the proficiency levels, they also foster sportsman spirit, enhance physical endurance, promote healthy competition and ensure overall development of children.
For true integrated growth to take place, our children’s physical self must be systematically developed. Sports facilities at our school include indoor games and outdoor sports. The sports curriculum is designed according to the needs of the different age groups. In the pre-primary classes, emphasis is laid on the development of gross motor skills, physical stamina, flexibility, balance, strength, hygiene, overcoming physical fears and hesitations and the development of team play. In the primary classes, games with rules become increasingly important. Team accomplishments complement individual goals for excellence. Gradually, skills of play and precision with mastery assume greater significance for students of the secondary and senior secondary classes.
Indoor facilities will be made available for Table Tennis, Chess, Badminton, Aerobic, TaeKwonDo and Sports Shooting. Outdoor sports include Basketball, Football, Cricket, Volley ball and Athletics.
Today more than ever art is needed by our young people as a forum for safe expression, communication, exploration, imagination, and cultural and historical understanding. A strong arts education promotes the skills children need to be successful. Exposure to art education promotes self-directed learning and sharpens critical as well as creative skills.
Simple creative activities are some of the building blocks of child development. Learning to create and appreciate visual aesthetics may be more important than ever to the development of the next generation as they grow up. Drawing, sculpting with clay and threading beads on a string all develop visual-spatial skills.
Club Activities cater to each co-curricular area in a purposeful and structured manner to provide children with opportunities to channelize and build on their interest and creative competencies, as well as develop the right set of values and attributes
The School has the following clubs:
The School has an adventure society for conducting different adventure activities like Rock Climbing, Rapelling, Traverse, Trekking, Chain System River Crossing etc.
The School Adventure Society also sponsors students to undergo higher level of adventure courses like mountaineering in Darjeeling(W.B.), Ice-skiing course in Manali (H.P.)
The House System provides opportunities for all-round development of students through numerous activities. It helps to develop in them leadership qualities, self-confidence, team work, cooperation, competitive spirit, and inculcates good moral and social values.
The students are allocated one of the four Houses: Red House, Blue House, Orange House and Green House. Each House is led by a House Captain. These student leaders perform their duties under the guidance of their respective House In-charge, who are teachers.
The National Cadet Corps (Indian military cadet corps) is a voluntary organization which recruits cadets from high schools, colleges and Universities all over India. The Cadets are given basic military training in small arms and parades. The motto of NCC is to instill Unity and Discipline (Ekta aur Anushasan) in the youth. The cadets are taught the DG's four cardinal principles of discipline- to obey with a smile, be punctual, work hard and without fuss, and make no excuses and tell no lies.
The guard of honour, unfurling of the National Flag, marches on Independence Day and Republic Day and escorting chief guests for various functions are all done by our young cadets. Participation in several NCC activities inside and outside the school has fostered the cadets develop qualities of character, courage, comradeship, secular outlook, spirit of adventure and sportsmanship and the ideals of selfless service.
