For most children ‘going to school’ is a historic milestone in their lives. It is a place that plays one of the most important roles in their physical, mental and emotional development. Schools are settings where children learn, character is moulded, where values are inculcated and where the future citizens of the world are groomed to face life’s challenges.
Built into this educational edifice we have a well laid out infrastructure for games and sports with all the available place put to us.
Intramural Competitions provide an opportunity for the children to exhibit their talents and form a basis to pickout the talented children. In the month of June all the children of the school are divided into four houses: Bose, Nehru, Patel and Tagore respectively. In July we have the colourful Investiture Ceremony in which the School Cabinet take the oath and accepts the responsibility to lead the student community through various activities during the academic year.
Intramural Competitions on knock-out basis are conducted in major games of Volleyball, Basketball, Football and Cricket for the three divisions of boys and girls. The physical education department has scheduled around a total number of 40 games class-wise and more than 100 athletic events division-wise, as a part of intramurals to bring out the talents of the four houses. For the primary children the sports events are conducted separately.
