We would like our students to shine not only in the academic/sports but outshine everyone in the field of performing arts as well, and for this purpose we have opened a Music Club and installed all types of musical instruments. Training is imparted in Guitar, Veena, Violin, Flutes, Keyboards, tabala, drums and miruthangams. In addition, students are trained in Bharathanatiyam, Folk Dance and in yoga.
English Language Lab is installed with Internationally Certified Language Learning Software providing audio visual equipment to enhance comprehensive language skills. It focuses on the four language skills of listening, speaking, reading and writing adopted in blended methodology of games, playway, repeat and practice exercises, etc.
Education should be skill based rather than knowledge based so that it will be easy for all students to study faster and understand better. In the present scenario, skill based education is not a choice but the need of the hour where the demand for skilled professionals is very high and the desire to get skilled is low.
In tune with the need of the hour, our school provides entrance coaching in collaboration with Aakash Educational Service Pvt., Ltd., New Delhi. Every effort is made to make the concepts crystal clear to the students so that they perform their best in all competitive exams like NEET, IIT, JEE, NTSE, Olympiads, JSTS, NMMS, KVPY, NSO, IMO etc.
