Dr Vijay Datta Principal Modern SchoolhereIntroduction

Modern School follows the traditional House System. There are fifteen Houses. The house serves as a platform for the students to exhibit their skill in various activities. Every House celebrates a Biennial House Function which comprises of a play, a ballet, and solo performances along with a House Report which presents the achievements of the House. Inter-House matches are held throughout the year for the coveted Sports Shield. A multitude of activities such as Quiz contests, debates and painting competitions are held to encourage the spirit of competition among the Houses. An academic shield is awarded on the Founder’s Day to the House with the highest average percentage of marks. Every week a house is on duty, which means that its members deliver news and talk and stay on the Principal’s and Head Masters duty so that the school runs in clock- like precision.
