The School believes that every activity of the school should be value based and also strongly believes that the moral fiber should be intricately woven in to the curriculum fabric.
We have been following a curriculum entitled as "Life Enrichment Programme" since 2005 in the KG Section. This scheme aims at the all round development of the child and bringing out the best of him. This is implemented by the teachers who are well trained under the guidance of Sri. V.V.Joseph(Director of Association of Learning Disabilities).
We frame co-curricular activities such as Quiz fest, Sports Fest, Science Fair, Painting and Drawing Competition, Youth Fest, Food fest , Teachers day, Onam Celebration, Independence Day etc with a view to expand Physical, Mental , Emotional, patriotic and cultural domains of students. Celebrations such as Gurupoornima , Mathrupooja etc help to boost up their spiritual expansion.
