Back To School

Hello All,

We hope you’re enjoying your summer vacation. We also hope that you never stopped learning during the summer months – one should never let a day go by without something new learnt. Vacations offer us many and varied opportunities to learn but in different ways.

On September 3rd, however, we will resume the standard method of acquiring new knowledge, understanding, and skills. Regular school sessions resume on September 3rd at 8:20 AM.

September 2nd is a mandatory orientation for all students.

Orientation Schedule:

8/9th grades – 12 PM
10th grade – 1 PM
11th grade – 2 PM
12th grade – 3 PM

The above orientation meetings will be held in room 2.

7th grade – 12 PM in room 11.

Looking forward to see you there.

Please Note: Summer assignments will be collected on September 2nd. Make sure to bring them to the orientation. (If you have not yet started the assignments, now is the time to really get into it.)
