The more you use creativity , the more you have it !
Education is not achieved in an ivory tower existence. An amalgamation of Literary, Sports, Life Skills, Cultural Activities promotes positive self-concept and a sense of achievement between the students. Apart from just learning from books, the school has designed various co-scholastic activities for each class, depending on the age and interest of the students. These provide opportunities for children to experiment and grow into unique personalities. To inculcate the spirit of healthy competition among the students and to acknowledge their talents, students of primary classes are encouraged to participate in various inter and intra-class activities and other competitions where each one of them gets a fair chance to participate and excel in their field of interest.

“Chess is like a sea in which a gnat may bathe and a big elephant may drown.” – Indian Proverb
Chess is the expression of struggle in life, both in the past and in the future. Benjamin Franklin said that this “Chess is a kind of life, life is a kind of chess.”
We have brought chess to the school because we believe it directly contributes to academic performance. Chess makes kids smarter. It does so by teaching them skills like visualization, thinking ahead and planning.
The beauty of chess as a teaching tool is that it stimulates children’s minds and helps them to build these skills while enjoying themselves. As a result, children become more critical thinkers, better problem solvers and more independent decision makers.
