I & II                           70 Marks                     30 Marks

III & IV                      60 Marks                     40 Marks

V & VI                        50 Marks                     50 Marks

Parent Teacher’s Association

The P.T.A. is a body which has been very active in the school and ensures a positive flow of energy between parents, teachers and the children by providing a healthy channel of communication. It contributes to the activities of the school by lending a steady hand of support whenever required.

At the beginning of the academic year a P.T.A. Orientation Program is held for all the parents and a Committee is formed.

One parent and one teacher from each class level are nominated to be on the P.T.A. Committee. This committee meets every three months or as required to discuss various issues organise projects, workshops, activities and social events
