Boys are grouped into three houses named after the historical Tamil kingdoms the Cherans, the Cholans and the Pandians. House-wise Competitions and Cultural events are organized periodically and members of each house strive and compete in a healthy atmosphere to see that their house gets the top place.

INTERNATIONAL AWARD FOR YOUNG PEOPLE
This programme presents young people with an individual challenge. Through a balanced non-competitive programme of voluntary activities, young people between the ages of 14 and 25, are encouraged to develop personal qualities of self-reliance, perseverance, and responsibility to themselves and to the society, in general. The students are required to undertake activities in all the following four areas namely : (i) Service (ii) Adventure (iii) Skills and Interests (iv) Physical Recreation
SPARE – TIME ACTIVITIES
We believe, as eminent educationists do, that class-room teaching does not wholly fulfill the role of educating a child. “I never let schooling” Mark Twain quipped, “interfere with my education”. The objective of equipping the child for life to meet both its challenges and crises needs a totally varied educational programme outside the four walls of a class-room.
CLUBS & ASSOCIATIONS
Aiming at an all – round development, the school has many Associations and Clubs. The Literary Associations trains students in the art of public speaking and conducts competitions to develop their literary talent. The Science Club, the Nature Club, the Mathematics Club, the Philatelic Club, and the Inter House Cultural programmes aim at developing the scientific and aesthetic talents in the students.
The English, Tamil, Hindi & Arabic Literary Asssociations conduct meetings regularly. Eminent Educationists are occassionally invited to give talks. Oratorical and essay contests are held. Quiz Programmes are also conducted from time to time.
This programme is conducted every Saturday to increase the organizational capabilities of students. The students will participate in debates and make presentations on various topics and subjects.
