All the duties are divided among house parents so that the physical and psychological growth of children is monitored efficiently.

A primary health facility is available for the residents in the medical clinic situated at the centre of the girls’ and boys’ hostels. Regular medical check-up for children is conducted by an experienced and qualified health nurse.
Children with minor ailments are treated in-house at the school health clinic. In case of severe illness, children are taken to the nearest hospital and parents are informed immediately. Growth monitoring is done each month to register the physical growth of every child.
Nutritional value of food is the primary consideration while catering to children’s taste. Fruits and milk are an integral part of the students’ meals as a rich supplement to their daily diet.
The food menu chart is prepared by the health nurse and the house parents, involving the children as well. They take into account the calorie value of each food item, finally getting approval from the Principal. The children are served hot, fresh, healthy, and nutritious food. Moreover, children are also advised and encouraged to consume food items which are served with calorie value in proportion.
