BEING CREATIVE

We know how essential it is for children to be given space and time in which to be creative. There are many ways in which creativity can be expressed, and we like all our girls to participate in a wide range of activities:

Annual inter – house music, dance, and art and craft competitions are held to encourage the girls and make them self – confident. The Rupali Memorial Inter – School Art Competition is held every year. The girls are involved in back – stage work as well, and help with costumes, make - -up and props. The school has its own choir and a small band, and has even produced a professionally recorded music CD.

  • Indian music - vocal and instrumental
  • Western music - vocal and instrumental
  • Classic dance - Kathak
  • Folk dance
  • Dramatics
  • Arts and crafts
  • Designing and visualizing

AT PLAY

Sports are an integral part of the school day and the girls look forward to this time when they can be with friends and have fun, as well as learn about fair play, sharing sportsmanship and team spirit.

The day begins with morning conditioning exercises and ends with different games like badminton, basketball, kho – kho and dodge- - ball, Swimming, karate, aerobics, and yoga are also taught regularly. We have well- trained and experienced coaches for these sports. The girls’ safety is of utmost importance and each activity is supervised by the coach and other staff.

The school hosts the Dehradun district junior (under- 12) basketball competition every year.

GOING OUT

The girls and staff enjoy out together on mid – term and day trips. These trips are a great opportunity for the girls and staff to get to know each other in an informal atmosphere. The girls have to rough it out, often living in tents or forest bungalows. They love the sense of freedom, excitement and adventure that the outdoors has to offer.

Some of the places they have to for mid – term breaks are Mussoorie, Rishikesh and Shivpuri where they have gone rock - climbing, trekking and river rafting. They have also gone on jeep safaris in the Chilla forest, part of Rajaji National Park.
