The Arts Overview

Fine Arts gives students countless opportunities to discover and define themselves through rehearsing for a play, choreographing a dance, preparing stage sets, and creating a painting,  sculpture or even a video of a memorable event. Our Arts Centre provides opportunities for these skills and integrates them into mainstream learning.

The Arts with their propensity to develop creativity, envisage linkages with disciplines like History, Geography, Languages, and Sciences and help enhance our understanding of them. Thus, the social history of Mughal India comes alive through miniature paintings and the economic prosperity of Medieval Europe from the richness of Renaissance Art.

On working Saturdays, children attend hobby classes supervised by teachers who act as mentors. 


Self-assessment is encouraged from an early stage and is now a page in their Report card.

Music is compulsory in the first seven years of the pupil’s life, after which, it is offered as an optional subject. The school has its own orchestra and its own junior and senior choir. All the Children take part in group singing which includes regional songs, inter-faith prayers and chanting of Sanskrit hymns and shlokas. Both Indian and Western vocal music lessons are offered.

The School has developed 100 member Indian and 48 member Western Music orchestras. The students play several instruments including

  1. Guitars
  2. Drums
  3. Keyboards
  4. Tabla
  5. Violin
  6. Flute
  7. Casio
  8. Bass Guitar
  9. Conga Drum
  10. Xylophone
  11. Dholak
  12. Tanpura

Indian and Western classical music is played in the foyer every morning to encourage students to develop an ear for music. The morning assembly begins with prayers followed by an invocation song. Our music teachers make it a point to teach songs from different provinces of India and also some international favourites, which are sung during festivals and anniversaries.



Dance and Drama are a tangible medium to express life in all its facets-literary, social, political and historical, and every attempt is made to integrate it into mainstream education. They translate and transform events, ideas and stories into expressions that stay with the viewer and the participants.

During ‘Theme-Week’ festivals like Malhaar the inter-school Art, Music, Dance, and Drama competition hosted by our School, we draw over 30 schools and it has become a much-awaited event on the Delhi school circuit.


Our mega Annual Days, whether it be 'Dilli Meri Jaan' or 'The Silk Route', 'Evita' or 'History Seen Through 100 Years of Bollywood', or 'Reclaiming My Planet', are wholly conceived, scripted and choreographed by teachers and students.

The creative endeavours of the students culminate in the Annual Day function where as many as 1,700 children participate in a dance drama with a social theme on a specially constructed stage before an audience of 2,000 parents. We also have an excellent indoor auditorium and provisions for an amphitheatre.


Every attempt is made to introduce children to the rich and varied artistic traditions of the country. Children are allowed to experiment and explore in their chosen medium before being guided to a structured approach.


Eminent painters, sculptors, and potters are regularly invited to the School. Students are taken to art galleries and shown art films to heighten their awareness and appreciation. Art and Craft is harnessed to enrich other branches of learning. For instance, art forms like Madhubani, Palchitras, and Warli paintings, are also used to provide a backdrop to story-telling. Visiting tribal artists are invited to demonstrate their craft.


Art activity is plentifully evident all over the School. It is seen in the arrangements of the display boards, and the designing of invitation cards, sign boards, stickers and posters. It is evident in the way we celebrate our festivals. There is rangoli/kolam for Diwali, and floral displays for Onam and Phool Walon Ki Sair, making Ganesha out of clay for Ganesh Chaturthi, and Easter eggs for Easter. Also, during Environment Week, for instance, a 40-foot-long serpent is fashioned from old plastic water bottles strung together and festooned with coloured ribbons of paper with a placard saying “Dear Children Please Save Me”. The message is bold and clear and goes straight to the heart.
