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.

Pre-workout Warm-Up sequences for the entire body for the students of classes VI-X
The importance of warm–up exercises should be considered by anybody who works out. A good warm-up will raise the body temperature, which is particularly helpful to the body muscles. As the muscle temperature increases, oxygen becomes more available to the muscles, allowing them to contract and relax more easily. It improves muscle elasticity and allows for efficient cooling, meaning less chance of accidentally hurting oneself or overheating during the workout and ruining the entire day. It also increases one’s flexibility and mentally prepares oneself for a good exercise session.
