Clubs and Organisations
Abhyasa provides a unique opportunity wherein 10% of students in the school – selected from across all classes, get an opportunity every year to don leadership roles in the capacity of Managers, Class Leaders, Dormitory leaders, Academic coordinators, House Captains, Prefects, Head Boy, Head Girl and School Captain. It is an excellent opportunity for students to experience leadership and responsibility while at school.
Shiva & Shakti Houses
To develop a healthy competitive spirit among children, each student is assigned to a ‘House’ – to which he/she belongs and represents in all competitions on the school campus. The school is divided into two houses namely Shiva (Blue Color) and Shakti (Red Color) – symbolizing the Masculine and the Feminine aspects of Nature. The house captains mobilize boys and girls at the junior (Grades IV, V & VI) – Intermediate (Grades VII & VIII) – Senior levels (Grades IX & XI) to participate and compete in various Inter-House Games and Cultural activities.
Inter House Games and Sports
Competitions are conducted in all Games and Sports events throughout the year – to spot talent and train students for external Inter-School competitions. An annual time table is drawn up for exhibition matches at every weekend and the sports, field and track event competition are held during the months of September – October, culminating in a Inter-House Sports Festival on the last day of the First semester. These programmes are planned in consultation with the student leaders and State and National level event records are monitored to meet targets.
Student Club Activities
These activities are Inter-house Competitions conducted by the School in various events such as Dance, Music, Fashion Show, Quiz, Debate, Elocution, Science Projects, Poetry, Dramatics, Antakshri, Fun Games like ‘what’s the good word?’, Dumb charades etc between the Shiva and Shakti Houses at the three levels of Juniors, Intermediates and Seniors. All preparations for performances are undertaken completely by the students without any inputs from their teachers. This brings out their innate talents and creativity and also helps to shed inhibitions in the child. This training imbues organizational and managerial skills in children and inculcates collective responsibility. Such competitions are held every Sunday and the points scored by each house are added to the overall tally of the House Points.
Student Management Committees
At Abhyasa, the students manage various departments of the school through Committees headed by a Student Manager, Deputy Manager and Voluntary Members drawn from classes VIII to XII.
