We have a proud association with the prestigious 'Duke of Edinburgh's Awards,' the International Award for Young People (IAYP), the most adaptable and successful youth empowerment programme globally. The Award's concept is one of individual challenge, giving young people a balanced, non-competitive Programme of voluntary activities, which encourages personal discovery and growth, self-reliance, perseverance, responsibility to themselves and service to their community. Under this, our students perform various community services like social work with NGOs to support the underprivileged students and rallies with the Indian Red Cross Society to bring awareness about plastic.
To a large extent, the Social Empowerment component in our school inspires the SEVA philosophy, which in the Indian environment refers to the concept of service to the community. SEVA project in our school is headed by Ms. Gur Amrit Kaur, our Educational Consultant. It aspires to social or community service that includes environmental, civic responsibilities, democracy, health and fitness-related projects, and international and other projects. The main objective of the SEVA project is to direct children's minds in constructive activities with positive outcomes through the facilitation of creative and critical thinking.
