No Homework for I & II
As all children have the right to a happy and carefree childhood which paves the way for a more meaningful and productive adulthood and this is possible only if the student is indulged more in sports, group work and peer learning. Therefore to regulate the weight of school bags we promote ‘Learning by Doing’ and implement no homework policy for the students of classes I & II. We also prepare a book load (Time –Table) which is given to the students with a note for the parents to prepare the child’s school bag as mentioned in the book load.
