Todays education programme aims at an all round development of the child and in the new millennium besides academic literacy, computer literacy has gained the status of fourth R. In today’s world of emerging technology, the teaching learning process has to be fully empowered with the right technology tools to manage and disseminate knowledge. To promote the same, there are three computer labs in the schools. The labs are well equipped with computers, printers, networking and internet. Computer science is included in the curriculum of all students from class I to X, and as an elective subject in class XI and XII as Computer Science & Multimedia & Web Technology.
Besides the three computer labs we also have computers in Commercial Art Room for providing computer aided art education to the Commercial Art students, one LCD Room for multimedia presentations of different subjects, Educational Resource Centre and in library for promotion of CD library project.
All students are given hands on experience in various software packages and also taught programming languages which include Qbasic, HTML, VBScript, ASP and C++. Besides this, Project work, Games and educational software are also taken care of to foster and encourage creativity of students and develop the full potential of every student. To promote IT awareness among students a computer club of 15 students by the name of ‘Techedge’ is formed every year who represent the school in various Inter school IT competitions and also organize in-house IT activities in the school. Recently we have also started a Robotics Club by the name of ‘Techbotix’ to keep pace with the technological advancements in the upcoming new fields of Space and Robotics.
