2. School Progress

Right now we have 600+ students in English Medium and 700+ students in Telugu Medium. School starts at 8.45 AM with prayer and class will be over by 3.30 PM. After class work all students will finish their daily home work with teachers’ help in school before 5 PM. After that they will do simple Yoga for 15 minutes and then followed by 10 minutes meditation. Whole staff will participate in the meditation. Every Saturday is reserved for only moral classes and overall classes. The student should not get any homework or class work. All class should general classes.
The first five minutes of each period is reserved for one General Knowledge bit, one English word and its usage and once in a while discussion on one current affair. This is happening irrespective of the class type.
All higher standards’ have one hour PET and one gardening class once in every week and all LKG, UKG, 1st, and Nursery students have everyday play time and few movie classes.
All higher standard Telugu medium students have spoken English class on every Sunday for one hour.
To improve the attendance and team spirit, we have implemented groups in each class with names like Gandhi, Bose, Bhagath Sign, Mother teresa etc.. Each group will compete in exams, sports, attendance and neatness...
Last but not least, we are encouraging every student to plant at least one plant and take care of it. So far they planted around 600 plants in the year 2008.
