Our campus is equipped with CCTV cameras for surveillance of the areas frequented by the students. Recently, schools across the length and breadth of the country have resorted to the use of CCTVs for policing campus activities and to keep the students in check and under control. This is a laudable initiative taken by the administration to cover the entire campus under CCTV surveillance for the safety and security of the students. Our School is fully committed to the provision and maintenance of the school environment as far as is reasonably practical, safe and secure and any risk to the security of the school or students is deemed unacceptable.
Our School has an immense concern for our boys regarding their physical fitness. The rise of obesity in young children has become a growing concern in India. In the last ten years, our culture has changed dramatically. Our nation was once a physically active nation, yet now it seems that society discourages physical activity. Physical fitness is important for health. Physical education helps students improve their knowledge about health issues and practices that will lead to a more enjoyable life. It is important for young kids to stay physically active. Student’s involvement in physical education teaches them about lifelong fitness.
It is an obvious fact that physical education classes, when made mandatory, would help improve the physical health of the youth across India. Obesity also leads to hypertension, sleep amnesia, diabetes, asthma, and many other serious problems. With a world class gym in our school we have made it mandatory for students to have physical education classes and practice at gym.
We have a promise to keep to the next generation, that to make them fit throughout their entire life through a habit of having regular exercise. We believe that a fit body will have a fit mind inside to have bright, sharp, disciplined, humble, educated and quick mind inside to take part in teamwork to develop our country. Also we work through a motto to have success through hard work. Physical education helps students improve their knowledge about health issues and practices that will lead to a more enjoyable life.
