In the primary section, the students are trained to use basic software's like Windows, MS-Office (Ms-Word, MS-PowerPoint, Ms-Excel etc.). Along with this, they get exposure to computer programming at elementary stage through the computer languages like LOGO and Q-Basic in order to improve their logical skills. The students are assessed on their practical skills over a regular time interval via projects and assignments given to them. In the higher classes the students have an option to learn advanced softwares which are the part of their curriculum.

Highly sophisticated and fully equipped Physics, Chemistry and Biology labs provide an open environment for students to experiment and do research work. All these labs are provided with lecture/seminar area too. The three divisions of the science department ensure that students do real experiments. Our science labs are not just a rich storehouse of costly equipments and the latest gadgets on display.
They are workshops of practical experiment going far beyond the limits of prescribed syllabus. The teachers at the physics, chemistry and biology labs challenge them with exciting projects, giving them a strenuous time clashing with known principles and existing data. This is a place where the divine curiosity of students is at work.
Amazing learning happens when a student himself does what the theorems he learnt in the math class. To enrich the teaching of Mathematics at the school level, the math lab has been set up. The "learning by discovery" approach is practiced here and students are made to work on projects and activities, which highlight the relevance of mathematics.
They get hands on experience. The lab also encourages group learning cooperative learning among children. It not only encourages 'do & discover' method but also removes the fear of Math and thus complements classroom learning. They not only study the various concepts, they go back to the life of the mathematician, learn about his background, his life, learning strategies, and the limited opportunities he had to work with. It inspires the young mind by emulating their example.
