Pastoral Care

Pastoral Care

Trained staff members, including a housemistress and a housemaster, along with a whole range of support staff, are entrusted with the well being of the children and to ensure that the needs of our pupils are fully met.

Boarders are given special attention as they receive the best of everything namely special lectures from visiting faculties for career development, competitive exams, sports and other co-curricular activities. Our boarders best utilize personality development and career counseling programmes.


Boarders are taken out in the lap of nature for adventure activities like rock-climbing, rafting, skiing, and trekking on a regular basis.

The school provides sumptuous vegetarian diet that tastes exactly like home cooked food. We do not cater to demands of meat, egg and other non-vegetarian food items in view of the sanctity of this institution and local community.

Messing is in the Central Dining Hall supervised by staff members to guide the students about table etiquette and manners. The residential staff members and students eat together in the CDH.

Five meals are served – Morning Tea, Breakfast, Lunch, Tea and Supper. Mid-morning snacks or fruits are served during break during school hours. Both Indian and Western food is served. Fresh fruit, vegetables and milk are provided every day, and extra or special food, if approved as necessary by the school doctor, is catered for. The Mess Committee which includes both staff and students meets regularly to review the menu and discuss the quality of food being served.

The food is procured and cooked by our own staff under an experienced Catering Manager who keeps it calorific, nourishing and wholesome. The kitchen is equipped with electrical equipment supported by bottled gas cookers.
