Events and Activities
We engage our students in multiple activities to enhance their various abilities and encourage them to hone skills such as effective oral and written communication, critical thinking, creativity, agility, entrepreneurship, collaboration, and teamwork among many others. This is achieved by organizing interactive events such as Inter-School Competitions, Debate Contests, Sports Day, and Bake Sales.
