Tours & Trips

The Himalayan trekking expedition was the highlight of last year's excitement. So was the recent trip to Mount Abu and Gir forest.

Last summer 08 we had two batches of 45 students each going on the Himalayan trek

The canteen is a favorite of the children from 6-12. The favourites being gobi manchurian and mancurian rice -in addition to all the yummy snacks, breakfast and lunches that are served. We do not serve chips or bottled drinks.

The Vidya Ganapathy temple

The temple is a favorite place of many staff and students alike. we have regular poojas and celebrate ganapathy pooja and special poojas regularly. This God has helped us tide over many situations and kept the major crises away. The school runs with His grace. we hope He will continue to bless us always.
