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.

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’.
