In our school we take pride in the following traditions. To speak only English in the school premises. To be always friendly with one another in and out of the school. To avoid vulgarity in talk and behaviour. To accept whatever work assigned to us as our rightful share. To respect the beauty of the school premises and to report any damage incase occurs. To respect the library rules and the rights of other students using it. To maintain perfect silence in the library and the laboratories. To avoid dropping paper, lunch scraps, fruit peels etc. in the school premises and make use of the dustbins provided for this purpose. To learn and observe good manners at table and elsewhere. These traditions are little things in themselves and they cannot be forced since this would destroy their values. The desire to observe them must come from within and must be genuine, only thus can one's character be formed.
