Students are trained to become leaders. Every child is given an opportunity to develop himself/ herself using his/her potential to the maximum. They get a chance to organize and present various projects and programmes. Children are taught good values using value education classes. (ie. the moral science classes)
IN SERVICE TRAINING FOR TEACHERS
Teachers are given enough chances to train themselves and attend different training programmes throughout the year. Continuous evaluation helps them to improve themselves.
Children from Nursery onwards shall wear the prescribed school uniform. Parents are requested to provide their ward(s) with three sets of summer uniform and three sets of winter uniforms each. Care should be taken that the children are turned out neatly and smartly. All students must wear clean neat uniform and properly polished shoes as required by the seasons. Students without proper school uniform will not be allowed to stay in the classroom. They will be sent home after two warnings. Remarks concerning this will be made in the School Hand Book. For any reason, if a student doesn’t have any part of the required school uniform, the same should be intimated to the Principal in writing and permission taken, for the same. The school office can be contacted for the details.

Regular and punctual payment of School fees is requested from the parents. This will avoid the unnecessary inconvenience of paying a fine. A student has to pay the Annual fees and tuition fees before the new Academic Session commences. From May onwards parents shall pay the tuition fee within thirty days of every month. A fine of Rs. 50/- will be levied for every defaulted month. If the fee is defaulted for three months at a stretch, the name of the defaulter will be removed from the School Rolls. Thereafter, the student will not be allowed to continue in the School. The fee has to be paid in the School office and Bank where the facility is provided. Fee revision as per the decision of the management. REGULAR AND PUNCTUAL PAYMENT OF THE SCHOOL FEES WILL ENABLE THE SMOOTH FUNCTIONING OF THE SCHOOL.
WITHDRAWAL OF CHILDREN
It is suggested that children are withdrawn only at the end of an Academic Session. However, a parent may withdraw his/her ward in mid-session if the situation so warrants. In that case, fees for the full academic session has to be cleared at the time of taking the Transfer Certificate. (NO DUPLICATE TRANSFER CERTIFICATE SHALL BE ISSUED.)
RULES OF DISCIPLINE
Students are expected to conduct themselves as ladies and gentlemen at all times and in all places. The wholehearted co-operation of the guardians is expected at all times in the formation of the character of their children. As the child progresses from the lower to the upper classes, he/she will be given increasing opportunity to shift from conformity to externally imposed order to self-imposed discipline.
The school will insist on strict punctuality, regular school attendance, cleanliness in dress, general grooming and fidelity to study and work assignments. Absence from school for mere social functions will be strongly discouraged.
1. Students should arrive at the school 15 minutes before the first bell.
2. The warning bell is a signal for all to go to the Assembly. After the Assembly, they should go to the classroom, get their books ready in silence and prepare for the beginning of class. Change of classroom between periods must be done in silence.
3. The school hand book should be brought to school daily. It should be used to note down the daily lessons, homework and other instructions given by teachers. Any student tampering with one’s school hand book or another’s will have to face disciplinary action. A student who loses the school hand book or defaces it will be subject to disciplinary action. A fine of Rs.30/- will be levied and a new school hand book will have to be purchased with necessary remarks about the loss in it.
4. Care must be taken of school property. Therefore, the students must not scratch or spoil the desks, write in chalk or pencil on the walls or in any way damage what belongs to others. Damage done or noticed should be reported at once. Even if it is caused by accident, the damage has to be made good. Conduct that is injurious to the moral tone of the school or incompatible with strict discipline is liable to bring dismissal.
5. When students move along the corridors, or when they go up or come down the stairs, as when changing class or during the recess, they must walk in perfect silence and in single a file. They should always keep to the left except when several persons are coming down the stairs.
6. Students should take an honest pride in keeping the school premises clean. Great care must be taken not to litter the compound and roads with lunch scraps, fruit peels, scrap paper, sweet-wrappers, polythene bags, etc. They should use the bins specially provided for the purpose.
7. No student is allowed to remain in the classroom or in the corridors during recess or P.T. periods.
8. a) Books (other than text or library books), magazines or papers, or any other object liable to prove a source of disturbance for the smooth running of the school, such as transistor, camera etc. should not be brought to school without the prior permission of the Principal or the Vice-Principal.

11. Cycles must be locked in the cycle shed and never left standing about the ground. On their way to and from school, students must behave decently. They must remember that the school is judged by their conduct. Any reported or observed objectionable conduct out of school on the part of the students shall be liable for disciplinary action.

14. Students who expect to return late to their homes are responsible for informing their parents about it in advance.
15. No one who is absent on the previous day from school, or is late for the first period, will be admitted to class without the permission of the Principal or the Vice-Principal. Absence must be explained in a separate note addressed to the Principal by a Parent / Guardian. It should also be noted in the diary in the appropriate place.
16. Repeated absence without leave, or unexplained absence of more than 10 days renders the student liable to be struck off the rolls. No leave of absence is granted except on previous written application from parents/guardians and then only for very serious reasons. For leave of absence for more than 3 days due to illness, a letter or application along with medical papers and a fitness certificate must also be sent. Absence without leave inevitably invites disciplinary action at the discretion of the Principal.

20. Promotion of students from one class to another will be made at the end of the school year on the basis of the year’s record of work along with the average of the exams held during the whole year. Regular attendance and steady work, therefore, will be condition for promotion.

23. A student who fails consecutively twice in the same class will not be permitted to continue his studies in the school.
24. No re-test / re-exam is held for a student who fails to appear for the test / examination. Such an absence without a grave reason and without the approval of the Principal implies failure.
25. Absence from a test / examination implies total loss of marks for those subjects and excludes a student from being considered for a prize.
RECOMMENDATIONS FOR PARENTS
1. The school earnestly solicits and indeed requires the maximum co-operation of parents on daily basis. Their constant interest in the progress of their child will be greatly appreciated. Therefore, parents should make it a point to attend functions organised by the school for them. Parents are informed that occasional reports from the teachers or administrators are to be countersigned as proof that they have read them and must understand that failure or refusal to do so may put the child to great inconvenience.
2. Students should put in two hours of private work at home in order to finish their home tasks and prepare their lessons. The home tasks must be done very neatly and completely each day.
3. Private tuitions are not encouraged; students are not permitted to take tuitions from the teachers of this school without the approval of the Principal. Anybody found violating this rule will have to leave the school.
4. When communicating with the School Authorities, the parents are requested to mention in their letters the full name, class, section and Admission number of their child.
5. Parents, guardians and other persons should not visit the classes or interview the teachers, except after obtaining the approval of the Principal.
6. Parents or guardians are especially requested to notify the school of any change in their address/ telephone no. in writing.
7. A child who is ill should not be sent to school to attend class or take the tests. Cases of illness are settled on the basis of the term’s work in consultation with the teacher(s) concerned and the previous record.
8. Should you feel that your child / ward does not make the desired progress, the Principal should be contacted. If there be need for help, arrange for remedial classes in consultation with the Principal.
9. Criticism of a teacher and the school in the presence of the students should be scrupulously avoided, because it causes the child to lose respect for the teacher, with the consequent failure to learn from him / her. Should you have any legitimate complaint, see the Principal, without fear of reprisal.
10. As children advance in age, guide them to become resourceful members of home and country. Encourage self-help for work and study. Inculcate in them the idea of the dignity of work, a fundamental personal virtue necessary for successful career in life.
11. Withdrawal of your child from classes for mere social functions is not recommended because it retards the child’s progress in school and minimises respect for regular work with consequent failure to progress in studies.
12. Any student who is persistently insubordinate, or is repeatedly or wilfully mischievous, or is guilty of malpractice in connection with examinations, or commits an act of serious indiscipline, and/ or misbehaviour, or who in the opinion of the Head of the school, has an unwholesome influence on his/her fellow students or, whose guardians show little interest in the progress of their wards, may be removed from the school permanently, or for a specified period according to the discretion of the Principal. 13. In case of any dispute the decision of the management will be FINAL AND BINDING.
In modern Education, co-curricular activities play an important role. A particular feature of these activities is that the students from lower classes onwards learn under the supervision and guidance of the teachers to do things for themselves. Encourage your children to take part in these activities.
The Athletic programmes invite the participation of all the students since we believe that keen competition on the playing fields tends to develop a corporate spirit, striving for excellence and other qualities of mind and heart and character most needed for future leaders. The sports programme, though a part of the cocurricular activities, deserve comment in itself. Athletics are encouraged at every level. Intramural sports are highly emphasized. Each student during the first year in the school, is assigned to one of the four houses blue, green, red, yellow. When needed in the various activities, he/she is expected to respond to the call of the captain to represent the team in whatever activity or sport he/she is invited to.
All of us, your home, your school, you yourself should share the responsibility. Your Home : Those at home help you by paying the fees, giving you an atmosphere to study and sometimes forcing you to do the academic work. Your School : Those at school help you to set your goals and challenges. Encourage you to ask questions and lead you to self-discovery. They help you to learn facts, to learn to understand and think, to acquire new skills and habits and to assess as well as adopt values and attitudes. You Yourself : You are the most important partner of this group of three. Your education is the concern of the other two. You need to extend your co-operation to your people at home and your teachers at school so that you will be able to contribute significantly to the growth of the society.
