Therefore, alongside a rigorous curriculum, we emphasize:
- Sports for the development of the and healthy team-spirit
- Various extracurricular activities for students to express their creativity and expand their minds,
- And moral values, from a Christian perspective, including respect for one another, regardless of class, creed, or religion, so students can grow spiritually.

Sports: Throughout the year, we organize a wide variety of sports competitions, such as kabbadi, karate, cricket, track and field, and more. And every alternate year, we host a grand Sports Day, where students compete in March Past, Drills, Track and Field, as well as group sports. Students are recognized for their individual abilities as well as for their teamwork, sportsmanship, and house spirit.
The school also elects a Sports Captain, and Sports Vice Captain, who excel at particular sports or are all-round sports champions. They set an example for the rest of the school.
