The Outward-Bound Programme
As befits a school situated in the Himalayas, we are well known for outward-bound activities such as mountaineering, rock climbing, the forest-based obstacle course, and the NCC. The school is also part of the International Awards for Young People awarded by the Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme.
The school organizes one mountaineering expedition every year which includes staff and pupil mountaineers. Class XII pupils are sent for basic and advanced mountaineering courses to prepare them for the expeditions. Six successful expeditions have been organised so far to the most technical, adventurous and difficult peaks in the Himalayan range with heights of over 20,000 feet. The moutaineers who reach the summit become ‘school heroes’ and are celebrated in our climbing hall of fame’
The school has an artificial rock-climbing wall and an obstacle course designed by specialists from the Army Training Corps and situated in our pristine Deodar forest. The school also organizes an annual ‘tours and treks’ week for all pupils to various parts of the country and beyond. The treks, which are under the direct supervision of the school staff, are planned to be age appropriate, and are guided by accredited tour guides. The treks include activities like hiking, survival training, nature appreciation, wild life conservation, and adventure sports.
