House System

“ Youth is the best time to acquire good habits, because the habits we develop as young, determine our victory in future life” The concept of house is included in the school system with a motive to inculcate team spirit in students. Following the same, we place a high value on learning with working as a team and the benefit of good behavior.
The houses are named after four soaring mountain peaks of Uttarakhand. The reason for selecting peaks as the names of the houses is, they not only celebrate our local geography but in the mountains there is a promise of something unexplainable- A powerful image, difficult environment, a higher place of awareness, a toughened spirit that soars like the peaks, to keep climbing… and in climbing there is a means of discovery, of exhilaration, of overcoming difficulties and to keep going and not give up.
“Climb mountains , not so the world can see you, but so you can see the world”.
