Dramatics Club provides a stage where a student can bring positive changes in their personalities. They want to overcome their fear, be confident to present themselves, and do something new by presenting a solo or a group act.

In the Dramatics Club, students get involved in many ways. They can think, imagine, create and present in different aspects. This creativity brings confidence to make original acts. Students improve their facial expressions, body language as well as teamwork. In every class, students learn something new and believe to complete their tasks. Their experience counts in every act. Every month they get different topics such as Guru Shishya Parampara, festivals, marketing, and current affairs. By presenting these acts students also give messages. Besides this students also present funny mono acts. In many ways, a Dramatics Club enriches the skills of students to learn practical and theoretical knowledge.

“Healthy debating enforces critical thinking principles - looking at things from different angles, with increased perspective and less prejudgement.”

The purpose of the Club is to improve the logical reasoning, analytical thinking, and persuasive communication skills of the students. Under the guidance of the teachers, budding debaters get an opportunity to show their oratory skills.

The Debating Club in school aspires to engage students of different ages, grades, and abilities in a verbal confrontation in search of truth. The topics were carefully selected keeping in mind the dual objective of providing a thought-provoking subject and building the students’ perspective about it. The members showed their prudence and keen knowledge in the topics that were given to them. The topics were given on-the-spot to the students - they had to speak for the motion, against the motion, and learn the art of refutation.

This academic year began with more zeal and enthusiasm among the quiz club members. They conducted various types of quizzes to enhance their knowledge. The In charges also asked them to maintain a scrapbook which consisted of NIE questions, current affairs pictures, guess who, etc. The members strictly adhered to the activities chalked out by the Club. In September 2018, Umang and Abid participated in the YMCA BrainVita Quiz competition and bagged the first position. Once again, the team composed of Arnav, Nandini, and Kundan bagged the second position in the Rotary Club Seaside Quiz. Although we did not win many prizes this year, we hope to prepare in a better way in the ensuing year so that quiz performance improves. We budding quizzers acquire knowledge from various sources to compete in a sportive way. Hoping to bring more laurels to School, we work with the School motto in our mind ‘Soaring High is My Nature’.

To foster reading habits among the students and develop information skills, more than 60 students from classes VI to X have joined as members of the Club. Following activities were organised by the Club.

Being a part of this Club students get an opportunity to utilise their time effectively thus raising their level of knowledge. Reader’s Club introduced the students to the ideas of new authors, hence broadening their views on different issues.

Students are always very curious about scientific knowledge and facts. The main objective of the Science Club is to promote inquisitiveness and inculcate scientific temper among the students.

The first interaction with the Science Club students was the understanding of ways to find out food adulteration. Students perform various experiments on a variety of foods and fruits, the structure and working of the human eye, defects of the eye and cure for the same eye donation afterlife, etc. Students also prepare pinhole cameras to understand the formation of images. Students are also introduced to the concept of surface tension by performing some interesting experiments. To understand the concept of density students made a density column by using fluids of various densities. They understand acids and bases by using various types of indicators (litmus paper, phenolphthalein, rose, turmeric, etc.). They also made them aware of the uses of various chemicals at home for different purposes. Students shared various information about different planets and satellites in the solar system.
