Junior students shall be encouraged and will be part of our “reach the unreach” programme where they will undertake trips to some backward village and impart special education on specific subjects of public welfare and health.2. “leadership Acceleration” from a young age each student will be assigned groups of young people from neighborhood locations and will be assigned to carry out specific social welfare tasks. This is to ensure that leadership skills are ingrained at a practical level from a young age.3. “cycle of innovation” current day challenges will be highlighted and groups will be formed where the target is to provide innovative solutions to the challenge which is implementable.
