Sports facilities include an Athletics Stadium, with a full 400 metre track, football ground, basketball, volleyball, cricket, tennis, hockey, kabaddi and kho-kho play fields. Indoor Games include table tennis, snooker, carom, chess and roller skating.
The students are divided into four houses named after the famous forts that saw many epic battles of the legendary Maratha warrior king Chatrapati Shivaji against the Mughals i.e. Raigad, Sinhagad, Vishalgad and Pratapgad.
All games and activities of the school are conducted as Inter House competitions, which are fiercely contested by the students thereby inculcating a spirit of competition and a desire to excel in every sphere. On the sport fields too they learn important lessons of life i.e. sportsmanship, to be modest in victory and graceful in defeat and to treat every setback as a stepping stone for success.
Our school students have already won many prizes in Inter School competitions and have represented at the District, State level and National.
HOBBIES AND CO-CURRICULAR ACTIVITIES
Education is a life – long process that must be developed on a firm and broad foundation. Pursuit of hobbies, educational tours, adventure and co-curricular activities are organized to enrich the student’s minds with the intellect and moral values, so necessary to become leaders and responsible members of the society.
All students are given membership of hobby clubs which function twice every week. Apart from the science and computer clubs, there are Maths and Literary clubs for the intellectually inclined. For building artists there are the Arts and Crafts clubs, for the performing artistes there is Indian classical music and dance as well as western music and dance clubs. For the outdoor and adventurous types there is Horse Riding, Rifle Firing, Nature and Wild Life Clubs (Trekking Club), Coaches and instructor are specially appointed for most of these clubs.
Co-curricular activities and competitions include elocution, debates, good handwriting, essay writing, storytelling, group discussions and dramatics. All these activities give ample scope for the blossoming of the students’ talents and also enrich their personality. An amphitheater is also planned in the school which will house up to 1500 people. In addition there is separate spacious recreation room in each hostel building with audio/video system and indoor games. The school also celebrates all the important National days and Festivals.
EXCURSIONS AND ADVENTURE ACTIVITIES
In consonance with the emerging needs of the present, we believe that alongside intellectual nourishment we should inculcate a strong sense of nationalism and encourage the pupils to appreciate Indian art and culture and be proud of our glorious past and rich heritage.
The school organizes educational tours to various places of historical importance and cultural interest including the National Defence Academy, factories, various exhibitions and events, accompanied by our staff members. These trips not only widen their horizons but also give them the necessary recreational breaks from the school routine.
Trekking during the school term and an adventure / martial arts camp during the winter and summer break are organized for these with a zest for life and the urge to explore the bounteous nature and geological wonders of our country side.
