The House System
Boarders live in spacious dormitories of various Houses. The Houses are of three categories to accommodate students of different age groups/ classes viz, Primary Houses ( I – V ), Junior Houses (VI and VII) and Senior Houses (VIII to XII). The Senior & Junior Houses are looked after by Housemasters who are senior members of the teaching staff.
They look after the welfare and discipline of the boys. They keep track of boys’ academic progress, co-curricular activities etc. and are in close touch with them and the parents. The Junior houses and Primary houses are under the care of experienced full time matrons assisted and guided by teaching staff.
The house system helps to foster healthy rivalry in academic work, sports and various co-curricular activities.
The organisation of residential life in the system also helps to promote family atmosphere, team spirit and provides ample opportunities for shouldering responsibilities.
Inter House Competitions
Various inter house competitions are held as per the school calendar. Inter House matches (for different age groups) are held in all disciplines of sports and games.
The Annual Aquatic meet, Athletic Meet and Sports Day are highlights of the year’s competitions.
In addition, inter House competitions are held in various co-curricular activities (CCA). All these inter House contests help to develop team spirit, competitiveness, sportsmanship and the desire to excel in various fields.
