Safety cell

Safety of students is a very vital concern of St. John’s. The whole physical environment in the school campus is conducive to their safety. Students are not permitted to move out of the school once they are in. If any student wants to leave the school early, parents/guardians must come and take them home. In exceptional situations only they are permitted to go with others and that too with the written authorization of parents. Maximum attention is given to prevent the use of undesirable things. CCTV cameras are also installed in key points without hurting the privacy of students. St. John’s always cares the personal safety of students by avoiding or preventing all bullying and fighting. Maximum care in given for the safe travel of students. Safety club is also functioning in the school and awareness about safety is given to students periodically.


Keeping in mind the prime importance and advantage of close contact with the parents/guardians for the growth of the institution, Parent-Teacher meetings are conducted, class wise. Three times a year for all classes separately. Parents will be invited individually, as and when it is found necessary. Students who get grade B or below will have special P.T.A. when it is necessary.
