Every weekend, the school screens movies either on a large screen television or in the amphitheatre. In certain cases, the students are permitted to bring in hand-held electronic games and deposit them in the custody of the school. These are given to the children over the weekend during the leisure time and movie time while strictly ensuring there is no loss of any productive activity.


Treat Hut, the on-campus tuck shop, offers a variety of goodies to children over the weekend within a controlled allowance. Students are not permitted to bring any eatables from home.






The feeling of goodwill and amity is kept alive with the celebration of important festivals such as Dusshera, Ramzan and Christmas together as one family. Celebrations are essentially simple but rich in meaning and spirit. The collective birthday parties are also a source of great cheer and merriment.
