The school, which was established just a year ago, added to its facilities an open Gym with the main motive to promote healthy lifestyle amongst the students. Despite the school being located in one of the remotest parts of the county, the school is successful in installing the modern facilities like that of the open Gym which is still lacking in most of the schools in urban areas. “Where there is a will there is a way” has been proved very successfully with this installation.

The school students are lucky to have all facilities such as football ground, volleyball court, basketball court, a prayer wheel, library, internet facilities and now the open-air gym. In the past, the area which was considered to be very backward is now in the process of development at a faster rate.
