Through myriad activities through the year our school instills in us a sense of appreciation and teaches us to give back to the society - of which we are a part.

We learn to care for the environment and contribute to a growing and thriving society. Planting saplings during Vanmahotsav and being a part of initiatives such as Say No to Crackers , Kids for Tigers , Say No to Plastic, rain-water harvesting, recycling, Save Electricity - the essence of all these activities impact us very deeply in our personal lives.

SPICMACAY programmes ranging from Pandavani to Manipuri, from Sufi to Shastriya Sangeet and trips to places of historical interest such as Amritsar, Agra and Humayun's Tomb serve to strengthen one of our core values- Pride in One's Heritage.

Our interactive sessions with Indian authors, illustrators and cartoonists during Book Week leave us aspiring to find creative expressions like them.

The Joy of Giving Week finds us happy to donate clothes, books and toys to NGOs as we understand that what we take for granted is luxury in many children's lives. The enriching visit to a school for underprivileged children, run by the SETU foundation, where our students turned into Art teachers was an eye-opener for many.

Taking up chores for our didis and bhaiyas, facilitating them and serving them on Labour Day helps us appreciate the role of our helpers- in home and society.

Thus guided by our school are we learning to be more responsible citizens of our society.
