Personal Care

Laundry and Housekeeping

The school laundry service collects clothes each morning and returns them in the evening. Students need to put their dirty clothes in the basket provided along with a list before they go to school. Students collect the clean laundry from their Dorm Parent in the evening. All items put for washing must be clearly marked with your name and roll number. It is advisable not to bring delicate clothes to school unless you are prepared to wash them yourself. Bed linen and towels will be changed twice a week. The Housekeeping Service will clean and dust your room daily. You need to tidy your room so that this can be done efficiently. Do not leave valuables lying around. The service also takes care of the bathrooms and common areas of the Dorm. Dry Cleaning will be collected once a week and sent to a Dry Cleaning establishment nearby. Students should inform Dorm Parent if they have items for dry cleaning.

Laptop rules

Students from grade 6 upwards are allowed to bring laptops to school. These must be registered with your Dorm Parent. They will be collected each evening by your Dorm Parent according to the Dorm rules and issued to you the next morning to take to school. The timings will vary depending on your Grade and the work in progress. You will be given time to send emails and communicate with your friends but please remember that the laptops are primarily for academic use.

Mobile rules

All boarders are allowed to have one mobile phone. This must be registered with the Dorm Parent and will be given to you during “Phone hour” in the evenings so that you can make calls and then returned to the dorm parent. You may not take the mobile to school.

Tuck

Boarders may bring a small amount of tuck with them to school. This may include biscuits, namkins, jams, sauces, cake, sweets and chocolate. These should be handed over to your Warderns for storage as food items may not be kept in your room for hygienic reasons. Your wardern will give you tuck at appropriate times. Tuck may be replenished from the Tuck Shop.

Money

Boarders will have an account with the school accounts office and will be able to access this up to the amount lodged by the Parents for expenses. Students should not generally carry large sums of money with them and should register their foreign exchange and extra Indian money with the Accounts office to be put in your account the foreign exchange will be kept until you need it for travel. You will be able to draw against this as necessary. A small amount of pocket money will be issued to you each week from your school account. The school does not encourage any student to carry large sums of money as it is a temptation for injudicious spending. Most of what you need is provided for you and therefore carrying money is unnecessary and could lead to theft.

Communication

The main form of communication by the school to parents will be via the school management system and emails. Students will have opportunities to contact their parents each day through their mobiles and laptops. There will also be a landline facility in the Dorm. Parents and Dorm Parents will be able to communicate through email, the Landline and Mobile. Generally this should be done during office hours though the Dorm Parent will be available any time for an emergency. The relevant numbers and IDs will be given to you on arrival. Letters and Parcels will be accepted at the School reception and sent to the Dorm for distribution by the Dorm Parent.

Meals

The school serves both vegetarian and non vegetarian food. These are prepared and served separately. There will be a variety of cuisines Indian, Chinese, European for example, served in the dining hall. The menu for the week will be displayed on the School Website and in the Dining hall. Boarders will have a choice of cereals, eggs, breads, butter, jams, tea coffee and milk for breakfast. Break time snacks, lunch and tea will be taken with the Day Boarders and Dinner will consist of a soup, vegetarian and non vegetarian main course and a dessert. Meals are compulsory and students are expected to eat at least a little of what is served even if it is not what they are used to.

Health concerns

The school has a well equipped Health Centre manned by a trained Nurse. The Centre takes care of minor injuries, asthma and allergic attacks, coughs colds and fevers and manages the first aid for more serious cases. These will then be transferred to Max Hospital which is 5 minutes away from the school. Parents will of course be informed. It is important that Parents fill in the School Medical Form so that the Centre is aware of any recurring problem such as asthma or nut allergy that a student may have. Annual health checks are carried out for all students with emphasis on developmental and growth problems, and other problems common to the school-going children like infectious diseases, intestinal parasitic diseases, malnutrition, problems of skin, teeth, eyes and ears, obesity, etc. and those cases where a problem is detected are followed up by informing the parent and suggesting solutions or further investigations. Parents will be informed when the checks will happen and will have the option of withdrawing their child from all the checks or selected checks if they wish. The whole process will be sent to parents with the consent form. It is expected that all students admitted to the School will have had all the vaccinations and inoculations mentioned on the School Health Form. The School Ambulance is always on call in case of an emergency. Students who feel unwell during school hours need to get a Health Slip from the Principal’s office before going to the Health Centre. This slip will be signed by the Nurse and handed by the student to the teacher of the class he/she next attends. The Nurse will keep a record of the students and staff who visit the Centre each day and this register will be signed by the Principals each week. If and when accidents occur the Nurse must ensure that the Accident Report Form is properly filled in as it may be required later for conducting an inquiry into the accident. Boarders may be treated before school starts and in the evening provided that they have a note from their dorm parent. The Dorm Parents have the facilities in the Dorm to administer first aid during the night and at weekends. Should it be necessary students can be taken to the hospital at any time. If you feel ill at night do not hesitate to inform your Dorm Parent immediately.

Dental, Orthodontic and optical needs

Annual physical examinations, eye examinations and dental work should be done during the holidays. Ongoing treatments and emergencies can be handled by the school. Details should be handed over to the Health Centre Nurse who will make arrangements with a suitable specialist at the hospital. Emergency Procedures Should it be necessary to evacuate the Dorm at night the emergency bell will sound. All students should leave their room at once and take the nearest route to the ground floor and out of the building. Do not waste time collecting belongings; only pick up a robe and footwear if they are easily available. The marshalling area is on the grass near the back gate. Evacuation should be done in silence and at a quick walk.
