Every year the school holds a number of special activities like quizzes, drama, conferences, spellethon, essay writing competition, bake sales and science exhibitions.

PRIZE DISTRIBUTION DAY
O and A level results are declared by the Universities in the 3rd or 4th week of August. That is our vacation time. So the first thing that we do as and when the school reopens after summer vacation is to organize “Academic Prize Distribution” day for the achievers and position holders for all grades. The ceremony appreciates the talent dished out both in the internal examinations just before the vacation started and in the external examinations.
