Night-Out: Grade 9 to 12

Night-Out: Grade 9 to 12

Dear Parents,

Night out for Grade 9, 10, 11 & 12 is scheduled on Friday, 25th January 2019. Students will have regular working day on Friday, 25th January 2019 and will start with their night out after 3:00 pm. They will leave for home the next morning at 5:30 am. (Saturday, 26th January 2019)

Please refer to below given link for drop off routes on 26th January 2019, Saturday.

Night Out Bus Routes

Please refer to the details given below:


Night-out is the time for sharing and the children learn differently from how they do within the four walls of the classroom. It is also a way to experience school after the working hours and see how the campus looks on a dark night. It teaches the child to be independent, taking them out of their comfort zone.

Therefore it is our conscious choice to make them sleep in the open; and  be courageous to face the elements of nature. Night out is about appreciating nature as much as it is about enthusiastically having fun. So these two experiences together create a powerful learning atmosphere for the students of which certain discomforts are a part of.

Hence, we urge the parents to prepare their children for being open-minded and experiencing something different from what they get at home for e.g. a warm bed in an AC room, bedtime story, ipads etc. In addition to all the fun elements involved, they should also reflect on the learning part in the night-out.

We would also like to mention a few concerns that may come up during the night out.


  1. Winters – Students will sleep in skating rink. If the temperature drops below 12 degree, students will sleep indoors.
  2. Mosquitoes – We take all possible steps to reduce the number of mosquitoes. However due to our location in the midst of lush green farms with stagnated water (as the crops are paddy & sugarcane) on all sides, we cannot eliminate the mosquito menace completely.
  3. Insects – At night in most months of the year there are lots of insects that are attracted towards artificial lighting. Our toilets are open at the top to allow for light and ventilation. Toilet lights have to remain switched ON from evening till night (so that students and adults can find it easily).

As mentioned, night out is as much about being close to nature therefore it is necessary that children sleep outdoors.Students  need to ensure that they are properly equipped with clothes and covers to handle the cold .Students are really well dressed and carry a good repellent cream as  we want them to have a memorable experience sleeping in the outdoors!

We encourage all students to be present for the night out, it’s an event that children really enjoy and savour. There will be sufficient number of teachers and support staff to ensure that the students are safe and secure in the school apart from extra security arrangements for the event. The school also appoints a senior staff member (HOS/Principal/ Coordinators/ Admin managers) as a safety monitor for the night out who ensures that all students are safe  in all ways.
