The human brain consists of the Left Brain (also referred to as the Scientific Brain) and the Right Brain (also referred to as the Creative Brain). To ensure the development of both sides of the brain of any child, one requires a multidisciplinary approach which engages students in creative and scientific tasks.

The Pre-Primary wing celebrated Grand Parent’s Day during the winter months, every year. Children help with decoration of their corridors and classrooms and welcome their elders to the respective classrooms themselves. The little ones get to spend mesmerizing moments with their grandparents in an environment that is very different from home. Children are explained the importance of special relationships and are taught to express gratitude by making ‘Thank You Cards’. A special programme is also organized in the school auditorium which usually includes dances, music, games and light refreshments.
Keeping in mind the multidisciplinary approach of teaching-learning, we celebrate a ‘Literary Week’ every year to widen vistas of communication in the languages of English, Hindi, Sanskrit and French.

The idea behind this event is to give a platform to young artists to showcase their talent, learn from each other, increase community partnerships and pay special impetus to the creative arts which is an equally important aspect of school education as academics is.
Started in 2010, this is one event which is planned every year by students and almost fully conducted by them with basic guidance and mentoring by teachers. Hosting an event requires meticulous planning, teamwork, execution, liasioning and provides a hands-on experience of what the real world is like. This event is one of the most awaited events of the year with hundreds of students from the top schools of Noida and the NCR region participating every year which includes schools like Lotus Valley School, JBM Global School Noida, Bal Bharti Public School, Delhi Public School, Amity School, Vishwa Bharti School, Apeejay School and many more.
The Alma Mater of any institution is its pride and a testimony of its contribution in nation-building.
