The School will provide opportunities for some other activities as well :
Literary activities – Debates, Recitation, Creative Writing, etc.
Scientific Activities – Club activities, Experimentation, Exploration, etc.
Cultural Activities – Music, Dance, Drama, etc.
Adventure Activities – Mountaineering, Rafting Hiking, etc.
Students of Class VI onwards will be required to select at least one activity from among the literary, scientific, cultural and adventure activities offered by the school. The students could participate in more than one activity subject to the availability of time and opportunity. However, for purposes of their Report Card their achievement/ proficiency level will be rated on only the activity they may choose for assessment.
