“Safety is not something which you postpone, for the ideal and comfortable future, it’s the first condition necessary for the messy and unpredictable present”
To create awareness among the students about safety measures of fire and disaster management, training was conducted on Thursday, 24th November 2022 in school premises alerting everyone about the ways to respond swiftly in times of such emergencies.
The Fire drill was conducted out in the school to prepare students and teachers for any such eventuality under the fire risk reduction programme. The purpose to organize the mock drill was to check the readiness of the school to face any such fire emergency and also to make the students and staff aware about the Fire Fighting Rescue Operation.
A group of teachers and student’s volunteers armed with necessary paraphernalia required for firefighting and rescue operations positioned themselves at vantage points to guide and assist the students in the mock fire and evacuation drill. The students were escorted by their class teachers to the school ground after the hooter sound. Once all had assembled on the ground, they were advised not to panic in case of any disaster. They were instructed to be with teachers at the time of disaster and follow the instructions given to them by their teachers. The “evacuation” operation began immediately after the fire alarm alerted the students. The students were immediately evacuated from their classrooms and asked to gather at the assembly area. Some students were even called on stage to operate the fire-extinguishers independently.
Mock drill was monitored by revered Principal Ma’am Mrs Rooma Pathak. She addressed the assembly and had interaction with students regarding their perception of this drill. She also addressed certain precautions to be taken care of at the time of emergency.
Thus, the session proved to be informative and an imperative lesson on life-saving skills.

‘Older persons are the world's fastest growing and least used asset.’
Socializing can be a powerful way to inject more fun into your life. That's particularly true if you get to reminisce about old times or talk about the other things that interest you. In fact, a good conversation may elevate your mood and outlook more than anything else on this list, especially if you keep things jovial.
The aim is not only to introduce the young generation to their elders but also to benefit from their experiences, in addition, to make the elders feel that society values them so that they do not feel deprived in old age. Around a dozen senior citizens who were at notable and prestigious posts in their youth and are still active at various social platforms were invited to the school and welcomed heartily by our Revered Principal Ms. Rooma Pathak .This initiative taken by the school was appreciated by the senior members of the society who had a nostalgic moment while in school throughout. They shared their valuable life experiences with the students and teachers. It was a great learning experience for all the three generations who thoroughly enjoyed the company of each other.
