For ensuring active participation of the parents in the development process of their children the school regularly organises the Parent Teachers Meet to have a clear grasp of the academic and associated activities in the school. Nevertheless the credit for keep children in proper tune and motivate them for future growth goes to the committed teaching staff, who more than being teachers perform the task of motivators These teachers also organise Yoga and Dance classes for the little kids to them both mentally and physically fit and in the process prepare them for future challenges. Keeping in tune to the changing dynamism in the education process and cope with the emerging knowledge transformation process, the school has also arranged computer literacy education.
