Keeping the idea of “A Sound Mind in a Sound Body”, the school lays emphasis on building physical strength, fitness, and endurance. All the students take part in physical activities during the regular Physical Education Period.
The PEC CARD ACTIVITIES have been introduced at the Primary Level and the students have been learning the concepts related to English, EVS, and Math in a play-way method, which is more effective and enjoyable. Physical fitness is also a parameter of evaluation and hence along with athletics and sports, a Mass PT is conducted where children are trained to develop coordination, endurance, speed, agility, strength, and the fine motor skills. Interpersonal skills and team spirit is the natural fallout of adapting to a group.
Every year, the school holds Annual Athletic Meet, both for Junior and Senior school students where the students display their athletic prowess and compete with a healthy spirit.
Weekly classes for the primary in yoga and karate teach students self-defense, discipline, achieve fitness, control, and harmony. Meditation & Pranayama are taught to the children to improve concentration.
