The calendars are designed well in advance to help teachers plan activities accordingly. No assessment or any important curricular event is planned on any day that is special to any of the religions.
    Morning assemblies begin with the name of Allah Almighty. Children recite a surah from Quran accompanied by its translation. Inculcation of Islamic values is core practice in the school but due respect is paid to other religions. Eid and Christmas are valued equally. Gifts are shared across communities on both events. Christian and Muslim population of the school share feelings and strong association with each other. This coalescence adds beauty to our school depicting that everyone matters. Besides it sends the message of love, care and tolerance.
