Our Team/ Teachers
The school team consists of enthusiastic and vibrant teachers who work purposefully for the development of the students, enriching with all skills, engaging students in learning to the best of their abilities. The school team believes in providing a positive and conducive environment for the students as well as for parents, building high morale and standards that are achievable and measurable keeping in view the vision-mission of the school.
We offer counselling to help students work through their difficulty, understand themselves better and find ways of managing their situation. There is a special faculty who visits the school twice a week and facilitates the students by identifying the areas that needs to be taken care. Parents are also informed of their wards and invited to help their child with the required support at home. Teacher concerned of the students are intimated who then works towards the improvement of the child in a specified form and style with academics as well as behaviour.
Yoga is an integral part of the school. Every day the school starts its session with yoga for primary and secondary classes that includes postures, meditation as well as breath/body awareness. This aides in the physical well being of the students, to learn discipline, bring a sense of peace, calm and balance to a life , foster the consciousness that creates that sense of awareness.
