The main objective of teaching chemistry at senior secondary stage is to make the students capable of studying chemistry in academic and professional courses at tertiary level. Our chemistry lab is well planned and equipped with the latest and advanced materials, supplies, all laboratory apparatus and chemicals thus enabling students to contribute a lot in the scientific advances yet to come. Students develop problem solving skills in life and also it helps them to be exposed to different processes used in industries and technological application.
The laboratory is equipped with four large tables, and shelves containing the necessary reagents. There are sinks placed at different places and these are easily accessible to all students. The good utilization of the space ensures that many students can be carefully accommodated in the laboratory. The laboratory has all the non-consumables and electronic balances required for practicals up to higher secondary stage. Connected to the laboratory is a preparation room to store all the chemicals and for preparing required solutions for the experiments. All these facilities and hands-on-learning give students experiences necessary for the youngsters of today to remain tuned to chemistry and become scientifically literate.
It is an established fact that a subject like Physics is not learnt exclusively from textbooks and other reading material. Teaching Physics therefore requires a blend of classroom teaching and practical work. Conducting experiments, reviewing them closely, developing logical reasoning, and responding to analytical comments, are some of the valuable skills that help in preparing the next generation of scientists engineers, and medical professionals.
With this in mind, the school has state of the art Physics laboratory. The Physics lab has been specifically designed keeping in mind the type of equipment used and the nature of the experiments that need to be performed.

Why use practical work in Biology?
Biology is a practical science. Practical activities are not just motivational and fun: they also enable students to apply and extend their knowledge and understanding of biology in novel investigative situations, which can aid learning and memory, and stimulate interest.
It is a collection of experiments that demonstrate a wide range of biological concepts and processes. During practical classes students normally work as individuals , however in some modules group work is required. Sufficient equipment , a laboratory assistant and academic staff are available for students to carry out relevant experiments. The students are made familiar with standard laboratory equipment such as microscopes, chemicals and electronic appliances etc.
The lab contains two sections. The first is a teacher section with extensive basic information related to practicals, suggestions for time management of the lab and lists of needed reagents and materials. The second section is for distribution of material to the students.
From Health and Safety point of view, students are aware of the location of:
– Fire exits Fume cupboard
– Eye Wash , First aid boxes
– Taps – for washing off spills
Biology students specialize in investigating how living organisms relate to their respective environments. They might study human skeletal , plants, animals or other biological organisms. Within their area of expertise, biology students can go ahead in future and specialize as ecologists, botanists, marine biologists or biochemists etc.
We have a well-planned and well equipped computer laboratory with more than thirty modern computers separately for girls and boys with all facilities from applications for word processing, spreadsheets, databases, graphics, multimedia, programming in a variety of languages, and many other uses.
A computer connected to a wall-mounted projector is used for demonstration and instruction. Printers are also available for the students use.
