Cultural and literary activities are an integral part of school life at IHS. We believe that learning is not uni-dimensional, restricted solely to textbooks. Rather, we view learning as a multi-dimensional process, comprising important life lessons gleaned from dance, music, sports, drama and much more. We do not view such activities as “extra-curricular;” they are integral to learning. These co-curricular activities are therefore built into the curriculum to ensure 360° learning and all-round development of our students.
Co-curricular activities include:
Our students also participate in city-wide and national-level literary and cultural competitions.
IHS students get an early introduction to leadership and democratic process via fair and transparent elections of various student representatives, including the School Captain, the Sports Captain, and house captains, vice-captains and prefects. These office bearers are given the responsibility of guiding and leading their juniors, and encouraging their active participation in school events.
Our student body is also given a voice via an elected Student Council, which works closely with management and staﬀ to ensure that we hear and understand the voice of the student body. In addition, students of all ages are given the opportunity to hone their leadership skills through group activities, projects, and peer-driven initiatives.
We are committed to cultivating environmental awareness in school by teaching our students about the three Rs: reduce waste, reuse resources, and recycle materials.
Each year, our students take up specific environmental causes like declining sparrow populations in the city, save-the-tiger, and eco-friendly celebrations, initiating measures to create awareness.
We understand that good grades do not necessarily make someone a good human being. That’s why we choose to instil in our students the idea that they are part of a larger community, society, and world. A sense of civic duty and social responsibility helps students develop empathy, compassion and understanding, shaping them to be productive global citizens. We believe that the students who are engaged in social activities which have positive impact on their immediate surroundings feel more connected to one another and to the world around them. That’s why we encourage them to interact with people from diverse backgrounds and cultures, to understand social etiquette and ethical norms, and to participate actively in community activities.
