HOUSES

 

Students from Classes Nursery to XII are divided into five Houses – Aitchison, Nalagarh, Patiala, Ranjit and Tagore. This has been done to give them an identity and develop house and team spirit while taking part in various activities. Each “House” is looked after by a House Master who in turn is assisted by other staff members and House Captains and Prefects selected from the senior students of both Wings. This helps to develop qualities of leadership.
