Students under the guidance of a faculty member run their own clubs and organize activities, depending on their interests.
LEADERSHIP & PARTICIPATION
Our leadership programmes are rooted in a strong commitment to support students in their ongoing development as leaders. We inculcate leadership qualities in the students, by allowing them to take the lead in various activities and projects. We have various Leaders, such as Class leaders, Uniform leaders, House Leaders, and school volunteers, which are led by students and provide them with an initial grounding in leading others. We invite speakers from other parts of India and abroad for student workshops to develop leadership skills among students.
Our leadership activities help students to:
- Become more self-aware
- Identify improvement areas
- Boost self-esteem and morale
