In addition to all the facilities that help develop the scholastic and co-scholastic abilities of students, the school also prioritises providing a comfortable and healthy environment conducive to learning.
Counseling has become an important facet of the educational system. The school has dedicated counselors who guide and advise children facing problems, be it cognitive, personal or behavioural apart from also giving career advice. To ensure confidentiality and approachability for students, the school has dedicated counseling rooms located in the Admin Block separated from the main school building.
Equally important to feeding their mind with knowledge is feeding our children’s appetite with nutritious, fresh, and tasty food. The school has 2 canteens that have been contracted to external agencies. Prices of the various items are negotiated to be as economical as possible. The food quality and hygiene of the canteen is monitored closely on a regular basis by the school authorities.
Potable drinking water is one of the most basic requirements for students and providing it is a very important duty of the school. There are 6 drinking water stations in the school building and 2 outside near the playgrounds. The water is first treated at an RO plant and then cooled to a suitable drinking temperature. The RO plant is serviced regularly and the TDS counts are monitored to ensure that our students receive safe drinking water.
Restrooms, although often overlooked, in adequate numbers and at appropriate locations are very important. The school has 16 toilets each for girls and boys, each with an adequate number of wash basins, WCs, and urinals and an Accessible WC cubicle for differently abled children. The toilets in wings that house Kindergarten and Grades 1 and 2 students are manned by an attendant/helper and have lowered basins and urinals for ease of access. Doors to WC cubicles are raised just enough from the floor level so no child gets locked in accidentally, while also maintaining privacy.
