Aims of the school
The school aims to provide an educational experience in an environment where students can grow in intellect, character and body. This can only be achieved by the co-operative efforts of the school, the student and the home. Encouragement should be given to stimulate children, to raise their level of aspiration and to ensure their maximum participation in school and classroom activities so that each student can gain from all that the school has to offer and can fully realise his/her individual potential.
