VOLUNTARY UNITS IN THE SCHOOL
True to its motto, our school provides opportunities for the students to serve the society by encouraging them to join voluntary units like the Guides, Junior Red Cross, NSS, Green Corps, Health Club and Red Ribbon Club. Headed by trained teachers, these children take the time out of their busy school schedule to serve their school and the society through small acts of kindness and service. The units members take turns to present short programmes during the school assembly every Friday.
JUNIOR RED CROSS
The Junior Red Cross unit of our school functions with 60 students and three counselors to guide them. “Health, Service, Friendship” is the motto of the JRC unit. Classes are conducted for the JRC students every Friday and they are taught the history and ideals of the Red Cross.
The unit members along with their teachers join in the campus cleaning once a month, visit old age homes or orphanages once a year to spread joy and happiness to the inmates.
The Guides’ motto is “BE PREPARED”. With a strength of nearly 100 students and three Guide teachers to help, the Guides unit takes part in a lot of the school’s activities along with he other units to help keep the campus clean and green. Classes are conducted every Friday for the guides.
