Parent interference in the said election process is strictly not permitted.

HOMEWORK

Parents are requested to ensure that homework is done regularly by the students. By ‘Homework’ the school refers to the entire gamut of academic follow-up that takes place at home and not necessarily just written work. At the Primary School level, student’s time out of school should be their own time in which they pursue their own interests, hobbies and play. Often students are tired from the intensive teaching they have had during the day. Therefore, the school does not set excessive homework. However, at the Secondary level students are expected to submit their completed homework / worksheets on scheduled dates itself. Students won’t be allowed to participate in class sessions unless the home assignments are completed. Also, students will not be allowed to do tuition homework during school hours.
