House System in Vidyagram
VIDYAGRAM is primarily a residential School for Girls and Boys. The school has Eight houses with a capacity of 450 boarders. The Students are accommodated in various houses according to the needs of each age group. They are looked after by competent and experienced house masters who are teachers.
There are five house blocks in the school two for juniors and three for seniors. Each block is divided into three sections (Houses) one on ground floor and the others on first & second floor each. Each House has a Housemaster in residence, in addition to tutors also living in Houses. In each house there is a House Attendant. In Junior Houses matrons are also attached. Each house has a solar heating system installed at the top, for supply of hot water and RO Water Plant for supplying drinking water. In the evening after Games and before Prep (study) all students have a short prayer meditation session (Sandhya) house-wise every day. On every Sunday, Hawan is spiritually performed in one of the House Complexes.
The daily routine starts in the morning with a warming up session of physical exercises and yoga.
Breakfast is followed by the daily assembly, prayers, awareness of current affairs and importance of the day.
Academic sessions forming the core of activities start immediately thereafter.
A short rest follows lunch and soon the campus starts humming again. It is time for computers hands-on, library study, tutorials, hobby, clubs & societies, horse-ridding, skating and so on.
