The House System and its objective

To inculcate a sense of loyalty, team spirit and healthy competition, students are divided into four Houses:

House Name Motto
Grishma Red “COURAGE IS DESTINY”
Varsha Blue “KNOWLEDGE IS POWER”
Shishir Green “WORK IS WORSHIP”
Vasant Yellow “FAITH IS DEDICATION”

Each house is headed by a House mentor, assisted by House Captains and Prefects. Every student is allotted a House. Several competitions are conducted on an Inter-House basis.

The House system is devised to promote team spirit and a sense of belonging to the school. This system provides excellent opportunities for student leadership and peer group support, aided by the dedicated staff members, and house captains. It is a remarkable medium for enabling students of different ages to bond together and operate as a cohesive family.

The house system helps in developing the cultural and athletic side of school life along with the purely scholastic aspect. It brings about an all round development of the child.

We have set high, clear and fair behavioural standards for our community of learners. The Code of Conduct will apply at all times while students are on or off school property. In order to realize opportunities for academic and personal growth, it is essential that every member of the school practices:
