Mrs. Wadhwani has believed in recognizing and encouraging talent and special abilities of the teaching faculty. A careful scrutiny of the teachers is done before appointment and well qualified and experienced teachers are appointed to ensure the all-round development of students.The teachers, on consultations with the management organize activities such as quizzes, debates, excursions, tours, field trips, games, sports, etc. Regular workshops and orientation programmes are arranged to enhance the innate abilities of the teachers.
