Social Service Projects
The school has been a catalyst for social change and an effective instrument for human resource development. By adopting a number of social welfare programmes, the school has rendered invaluable service to the society. These programmes are a step forward in realizing the ideal of ‘Service before Self’ and are engaged in igniting the potential spark of learning in the marginalized and underprivileged sections of the society like help rendered to SOS Children’s Villages of India, Helpage India, All India Confederation of Blind, Sewa Bharati, Visit to neighbourhood slums or distributing books among children in Orphanages. Thus the school has championed the cause of upliftment of the weaker sections of society. Following are some of its campaigns:-
