  • Day In School

Valuable different timings for summer and winter conditions, but a typical working day commences at around 5:30 a.m. with line up followed by P.T./Yoga for 30 minutes. The students then wash, change and attend a period of study before breakfast. Breakfast is followed by “Assembly” in the School Hall. The Principal/Headmaster/Headmistress reads a non-denominational prayer, which is followed by a devotional song chosen each day from different religions.

Five more periods of study with a half-hour break in-between for mid-morning snacks, completes the daily classroom timetable. Lunch is followed by compulsory rest hour, during which boys/girls must be on their beds with shoes off, either resting or reading. In the extreme summer rest hour is extended to two and a half-hours.

From the end of rest hour to tea, boys/girls are free once a week to go to the Tuck-shop, attend meetings etc. One afternoon is spent on Socially Useful and Productive Work (SUPW) and on Spare Time Activities (STA).

After snacks, all students must play games of their choice everyday, followed by a bath. Supper is at 7:30 p.m. followed by an hour for homework when boys/girls spend time in their Prep rooms. Lights out for Juniors is at 9:00 p.m. while it is 9:30 p.m. for Seniors . More often than not, he boys/girls have after-lunch practice sessions for various speech and performance related activities, they attend talks and career-counselling sessions, remedial classes, inter-school and inter-house competitions, and the extra classes in the evenings which focus on certain problem areas in specific subjects.
