To break the monotony of online teaching-learning we conducted various activities on online mode like drawing, painting, solo song, solo dance, elocution, speech, Photography etc. These activities included topics/themes that could spread awareness on environment issues like deforestation, public health and hygiene etc. These events were taken up as subject- related activities by the language and social studies teachers and same were taken up with all earnestness, with a good response from the students.

Due to pandemic our student’s participation in the state level competition was less comparatively. Yet on 2nd August 2020 our students Mridul Mayank of class IX and Dinesh Chettri of class X were awarded with certificate and a cash prize of Rs. 3000/- by the PCRA (Petroleum Conservation Research Association) for quiz competition. Upasana Shillal of class VIII has made us proud who won the beauty pageant contest.

To enhance the mental health as per the need of the time we observed online yoga day. The Physical Education teachers prepared the videos on importance yoga and physical exercises and uploaded in YouTube as well as on the Facebook to bring awareness among the parents and students.

We conducted 2 unit tests and 2 Term examinations based on the CBSE curriculum, combination of online and offline. Syllabus was completed on time and examinations were conducted as per the school calendar. School year and working days were as schedule following the Covid-19 protocol.

Mrs. Tsering Yangchuk one of our senior most teaching staff got retired after 34 years of her service to the school. A Short Colorful cultural program was organized for her farewell. We also bade farewell to our Principal Sr. Sherin Jose who served the institution for last 2 years.
