Ushering in the new academic year with a few changes on campus. We have carried out some modification and restoration work at school during the summer break this year. Here is a detailed summary of the same:
Replacement of Roof in Rendezvous
The metal structure of the roof in Rendezvous was corroded and needed replacement. The new structure is of durable quality and is guaranteed to last at least 25 years. The new roof has given a refreshed look to the area.
Jr. KG & Sr. KG Classroom Renovation – (Air Circulation / Daylight)
Both the wings required aeration and lighting, hence the adjacent wall (the wall next to Drome) has been knocked down to provide more daylight and increase circulation of air in the area.
Internet Bandwidth (RF to Fiber) – 110 Mbps to 310 Mbps
As a tech savvy school, we are highly dependent on the internet and hence require high data speed at all times. To overcome the shortcomings related to data we have shifted to City Broadband which will provide us with a high speed of 310 Mbps. Also, City Broadband works on fiber cable and therefore there are lesser chances of disruption due to bad weather conditions. We will also be the first school/organization in Surat to provide such high speed data.
We constantly strive to reduce transport time for students. With this in mind and also to ease transport congestion we have purchased 2 new buses this year. This will help us to accommodate new routes as well as new students and teachers.
Drinking Water (Ground)
The water fountain on school grounds has been given a makeover.
We have recently constructed a RCC road which was earlier made up of paver blocks as we used to face issues like pavers coming out and becoming uneven thus making it uncomfortable for students and others to walk. This area is mostly used as a roundabout turning point for school buses.
Lab Renovation (Air circulation / Daylight)
We have installed sliding windows to increase air circulation and provide better natural light in the Chemistry, Biology and Physics Labs. Safety shower, eye washer, sink and a wash-up area have been added in Biology lab.
The most recent change brought about in FS is the shifting of meal time venues. Now the classroom will be used as a dining room during meal times. The idea behind this change is to reduce transition time for students and also help them inculcate etiquette of eating without spillage, since they will be responsible for cleaning their tables and classroom after meals. Another advantage of this change is a reduction in the amount of food wastage which has always been our primary concern.
