Parents, Grandparents and other members of the family are regularly invited to school functions. Independence Day and Raksha Bandhan are celebrated together.

IN VENICE ON A TRIP TO EUROPE
This is because we believe that both technological progress and an equal acceptance of the girl child are essential pre-requisites for an independent India. The rakhis made in the three colours of our national flag symbolize not merely national harmony but also convey gender equality.By tying rakes to each other, we are also recalling a piece of our history which was the early years of our independence struggle. Gurudev Rabindranath Tagore used this custom of rakhi tying to unite people of this country to protest against Loved curzon’s partition of Bengal in 1905.
Our annual inter-school competitions/workshops have become a regular feature on the Delhi School circuit and draw in best of schools to our doors.
