The ‘Sentinels of Safety ‘ ,as the members of safety club like to be addressed ,formally launched the safety campaign in March 2017 with an objective of preparing a team which is equipped with skills to handle themselves and others during any type of disaster . The team was constituted to infuse a sense of preparedness against disasters among the student community in the school. A core team of 25 members headed by Hardik Suri of XI-C and Saloni of X-C was created to conduct training sessions and workshops. The team has conducted various fire and earthquake drills in school. They also planned a new ‘Rainy Day Schedule’ system for safe and quick dispersal of students. The team was also a part of the workshops being conducted at DLF Promenade. The team has played an important role in organising the celebrations of festivals in the school and has been taking part in various fund raising activities. The team aspires to be worthy of the name given to them.
