House Mothers and House Masters are at the helm of affairs coordinating the day to day functioning of the dormitories along with a team of dedicated staff working tirelessly towards the social and emotional needs of the girls and boys residing in the school.

Life of a boarding student

A typical day in the life of a boarding student begins with rouse at 05:15 am. It is followed by a glass of hot ragi malt there onwards they head out for a cross country adventure through the lush green surrounds and physical training.
Post their school hours there is a system called ‘Prep’ which begins with meditation followed by one subject teacher supervising the students for guidance and clarification of doubts. The students here complete assignments and receive personal attention for academic guidance between  6 pm to 7.30 pm each day. This is followed by dinner and the 2nd prep must be undertaken by themselves at the dorms. The students are given some free time before they head to bed.
Weekends are combination of programmes such as counselling, indoor and outdoor games, cleaning, movies and a time to connect with their parents. Dorm night is organized every month to draw and showcase talents to erase stage fear and to have fun. 

The students during admission are provided a check list to meet their requirements during their stay at the dorm. A tuck shop in the campus is situated to meet other requirements of the students like stationery and personal essentials.

The campus has a dispensary with a visiting doctor. And in case of emergency there is a hospital which is about a kilo meter from the school. A trained and committed nurse resides in the campus to attend to children 24/7. School vehicle with a driver  resides in the campus 24/7 for quick conveyance in case of emergencies.
