The school will not be held responsible for any injury suffered by a student, for his/ her loss of life during activities such as games, sport, gymnastics, boxing, swimming, sailing / boat pulling, mountaineering expedition and camping. Consent of the parent/guardian is taken for granted for any surgery, if necessary, to be performed on a student, and a declaration that the school authorities will not be held responsible for any adverse consequences thereof, are statutory demands expected of the parents. However, in case of any emergency, on the advice of the medical authorities, the school will be given permission to carry our emergency surgery. This will be resorted to when time is at a premium and it is difficult to contact the parent and obtain their permission for the operation.
The complete medical records of the child / ward must be furnished for perusal at the time of admission. The medical report that is submitted must invariably contain all the relevant medical information relating to child since birth.
The Final external examination certificates of a student should be collected from the school personally by the parents and not by any other person.
The School will not undertake to make the travel arrangements of the student if the requisition for the same is made after the date stipulated in the school circulars / calendar / diary, and for non payment of airfare and dues to the Travel agency.
VISIT BY PARENTS/GUARDIANS
Parents / Guardians can visit their ward/s during the mid-term break only. In exceptional cases and in emergencies they may visit their wards after obtaining written permission from the Principal / the Vice Principal. Only parents are allowed to take the children out from the school. The identity card entitles a person to visit a student only and not to take the student out.
There will be no local guardian nominated for any student. Only for those living abroad, a guardian has to be a blood relation and should be authorized by the parent, to interact with the school and the student. The school reserves its right to reject a guardian.
PROCEDURES FOR COLLECTION OF STUDENTS BY OTHER DURING VACATION
Parents must come in person to collect their ward/s for mid term break and vacations.

For any case of gross indiscipline, a student may be expelled from the school, and it is mandatory for the parents to come and collect such children from the school, failing which they will be escorted under school arrangement and handed over to the parents and such expenses will be debited from the student’s account.
Students are not permitted to make calls to parents / guardians. Frequent telephone calls from parents are discouraged since it interferes with the academic performance of the student. Parents may call up their wards twice a week.
