Child centered approach has been made possible through various clubs:
To inculcate scientific temperament among students, the school has started Astronomy Club in collaboration with Antriksh Education Pvt.Ltd. Two modules are conducted wherein the students study celestial objects like galaxies, planets, moon, asteroids and appearance of comets. These activities are spread over a period of one year. As a part of On Site Learning students are taken for the night sky observation at Sariska to observe moon, Jupiter and other celestial objects. Astrophotography is an interesting activity for students as they take specialized photographs for recording images of astronomical objects invisible to the human eyes such as dim stars, Nebulae and galaxies. Students learnt to use telescope. The club integrates work and study encouraging inquisitiveness, experimentation, analysis and team work.
ROAD SAFETY CLUB
School is a partner to “Steer to Safety Programme – Champions for Change” – A Road Safety education extension initiative along with ROSES (Road Safety and Emergency Services). To groom students by making them aware of their responsibilities towards making roads safe through awareness campaigns, activities like films, theatre, workshop,performing street plays, emergency care inputs and interactive sessions for students with the resource person Quiz on Traffic Awareness on Road Signs, Poster Making and Slogan Writing etc are also organized.

Students are encouraged to share their views through CBSE conducted expression series like story writing, enactment plays, essay writing activities.
CLEANLINESS AWARENESS CLUB
Swachh Bharat Abhiyan is a National Level Campaign launched by the Prime Minister on October 2, 2014.

Spreading Cleanliness Awareness among the community to strengthen the cleanliness drive in the nearby localities. Motivating others to fallen on suit is the areas of focus.
Iken Scientifica is an experimental multi – disciplinary lab which provides opportunity for hands on activity. To ignite the child’s inquisitiveness, it is geared to stimulate the curiosity of students. It provides a platform to the students to establish a connection between curricular knowledge and practical applications and experiments with what they have been taught. Utilizing their abstract scientific thoughts and everyday experience, students make various working models at the Design & technology lab set up at the school. Students are provided with parts and problem statements. The parts are like basic building structures which are given shape and functionality with the help of student’s imagination and creativity thus fostering experimental learning and better understanding of the theoretical concepts. This facilitates applying scientific concepts in real life.
Students gain confidence as they inculcate an aptitude for lateral thinking. They accept the challenge of the competitive world by performing experiments and shaping their imagination. Students are able to bring certain playfulness within the learning framework. They are able to develop the ability to deal with unconventional situation. This has sparked the interest of students in learning science as a subject.
To bring out the technological creativity of the students, robotics club has been set up. Students are given extensive training and hands on experience with boy-bots.
