Nutrition Week is not for the children alone but also for the parents.

While the academic life of a student is crucial to his or her future, a concentrated emphasis on it alone would not be beneficial to the student. To promote the all round development of the student, The South School conducts an annual Sport's Day to encourage the students to participate in physical activities as well. We place equal emphasis on the physical and mental growth of the student.
The school conducts an Annual Day where each and every student showcases his or her talents on a public stage.

The Annual Day is an event of great pride of the school and is greatly anticipated by the students and teachers alike.

The Class Picnic is an educational experience that is infused with fun and enjoyment to facilitate a better learning experience for the children.
