The school management is highly concerned about the safety of all children within the school premises. To further reflect this concern, we maintain round-the-clock CCTV surveillance of the entire campus and have manned all external doors and gates to restrict any unauthorized access into the school.
Further, a dedicated control room with Intelligent Building Monitoring System (IBMS) has been setup to monitor all sensitive areas of the campus. What’s more, devices like circuit breakers, smoke detectors and cutting-edge firefighting equipment have also been installed to make the entire security system foolproof.
In fact, parents are also issued security guidelines at periodic intervals, so that they can keep a track of their wards security. Students are in turn, provided with regular lessons in personal safety to ensure they can take care of themselves in case of contingencies.
As the playground is to a player, the classroom is to a learner.
Classrooms at VSPK are spacious, centrally air conditioned and have proper lighting arrangements. We ensure our students get classrooms that are not only airy, but also attractive and comfortable. The number of students in each class is restricted, so that the teachers give individual attention to each student. Aesthetically designed furniture has been provided in each classroom, keeping in mind the comfort of the child. Each classroom of Pre-School and Pre-Primary has a different color scheme.
2. Smart Class:
Over the last few decades, everything has changed in our lives with the all pervasive intervention of technology. Smart class brings about a complete transformation in classrooms where the teacher can explain the fine points of the process, zoom in to show the relevant visuals freeze and annotate when and where she needs to emphasize engaging animations, colors, music, sounds and voice. The teachers gain complete attention and interest of every child in the class. Every child gets a visual input on how it happens and the concepts are well understood and internalized.
Towards the end of the class, every teacher displays a set of questions on a large screen; every child in class gets ready to answer the questions with their personal answering device. Students click the answers and instantly teachers are able to get a score sheet for every child in class. She ends the class reinforcing the contents of the lesson that were not understood well by students.
This results in faster and accurate understanding of the concepts in class and helps to improve the overall academic performance of students. Teachers are able to keep students engaged in the learning process and also get an instant and accurate assessment of learning outcomes achieved at the end of the class.
- Improves teacher’s effectiveness and productivity in class.

3. Readers Hub
Expenditure on books is the investment for future:
No educational institution is complete without a good, well stocked library, nor can education be complete without inculcating healthy reading habits. The school has a well stocked, spacious, well lit and ventilated library which houses books on varied subjects.
We at VSPK understand that children have their individual preferences when it comes to reading. To ensure that a child gets to read what he likes, the school library is enriched with varied collection of books ranging from philosophy, literature, fiction, adventure, encyclopedias etc. where they can prepare themselves for quizzes, elocutions etc.
4. Computer Lab:
Computer Science is no more about computers than astronomy is about telescopes:
Equipping one with computers is the pre-requisite in the modern era and the need of the hour. So Computer Science is a compulsory subject in the school. Our Computer labs offer a lot of scope for all children to acquire hands – on training. The school has a well developed computer centre with first-rate machines. Instructors and faculty members are available to help students to learn and use computer extensively. It is fully equipped to provide child friendly activities through interesting software. Each child has his/her own work station to practice. Computer education begins right from Nursery. In the lower classes, computers are also used as a means to learn other subjects. The Computer labs also facilitate senior students to acquire programming skills.
5. Math Lab: An extension of the classroom:
Since the students are natural learners , very inquisitive, possess a surprising scope of interests and have opinions and express therefore all the activities from classroom learning to Math lab are geared towards following the ‘Hands-on’ teaching methodology. These inclusive programs attempt at making each child at par with the other. We attempt to teach them that completing a task is not enough and that it should be done well with excellence being a way of life. The school equips them with skills to cope with failures, learn to prioritize, borrow lessons from all disciplines and see the positive in things around. We also endeavour to see that they enjoy the activities pursued in school.
6. Play Ground :
Practice as if you are the worst, perform as if you are the best:
The early years of a student’s life are invariably the most crucial ones. They constitute the golden period when a student can make or break his/her career. When it comes to laying the foundation stone for your child’s future, it’s not just mental peace that counts; physical surroundings also play a key role in shaping his/her outlook towards life in general.
‘It’s not so important who starts the game but who finishes it.’ here lies the importance of playgrounds in schools. Students at VSPK International School are encouraged to play a variety of sports.

The school has its own swimming pool within the premises with separate change room and showers for boys and girls. Every class has a period allotted for swimming in its timetable. The puddle pool is specially designed for our little ones and a qualified trained lifeguard ensures the safety of each child.
7. Gym: Those who think they have not time for bodily exercise will sooner or later have to find time for illness:
A quality gym under a trained instructor incorporates fitness education rather than just playing games. Kids learn about the significance of what they are doing in gym class and why they need to stay active in life. Whether a child exercises at home, he won’t always get the instruction aspect that he receives in gym class. The teachers also perform evaluations and assessments of the students and their fitness knowledge. VSPKians have well equipped modern facility gym to give them a break that benefits them when they return to the classroom after sitting for long periods. Students are often able to focus better after a session of physical activity as it offers a mood boost for the students.

Every care is taken to ensure the students’ health. In case of a serious illness firstly the parents are informed and accordingly action is taken either to send the child home or transfer him/her to the hospital. Parents are requested to keep the school authorities informed about any specific medical problem that a child may have.
