The activities include literary, aesthetic skills & performing skills and clubs. Health and physical education will also form an integral part of this assessment. Co-Scholastic areas will be assessed on: (a) life skills; (b) attitude; and (c) values.

The Session will be spread over 2 terms, first from April to September and then from October to March. Assessment of the entire Session will be divided under two categories:

Formative Assessment and Summative Assessment. Formative Assessment is done on the basis of weekly tests, assignmenst, homework and classwork, practicals, projects, oral quizzes, experiments and other activities in class.
