Pastoral Care

The school is housed in large, airy buildings.

Dormitories are divided among the five Houses, so as to develop a sense of belonging and team spirit. Each House is under the charge of a house mistress and a matron. Junior and Senior girls have separate hostels.


School meals are carefully supervised by the staff members who look after the mess, and efforts are made to provide a well-balanced diet with a variety of dishes both vegetarian and non-vegetarian. Pork and Beef do not feature on the menu. Both Indian and Western food is served. Fresh fruit, vegetables and milk are provided every day, and extra or special food, if approved as necessary by the school doctor, is catered for. Teachers and students eat together at the table and the Mess Committee includes both staff and students.


The girls’ health is supervised by a well-qualified and experienced Doctor. The school has its own infirmary under the charge of a resident doctor and three qualified resident nurses. At the beginning of each term, each child has to undergo a routine medical examination. Ailments are attended to under careful guidance and children are taken to specialists as required. Weekly visits are also conducted by the ophthalmologist who is on the panel of specialists.
