For the very first time we are introducing Robo Lab which is a Activity Based laboratory (ABL) comprising of advanced robots which can be used in experiments by the students in a comfortable school environment.
It supplies advanced set of building blocks which can be used as a tool for building simulated real world situations.
The students will carry out a variety of tasks that are defined for the robots and thus gain a very hands-on insight while doing such exercises. Not only this, but the curriculum also includes assessments that can be used by the teachers for evaluating the students’ practical skills and knowledge.
“Acting Town”- the school’s drama club is designed for students, interested in learning stage terminology, working on acting skills, set building, and costumes/makeup design. In initial stages we started incorporating drama in the classroom to have students act out the dialogue from their textbooks figuring out for themselves the “blocking”, or stage movements. Not only this, club motivates students to bring out the best in them where young minds raise their voice against social malice prevalent in society around them. The students are actively involved in all the stages right from the conceptualization up to the implementation of the ideas. The ideas are presented in the form of one act plays and street plays to bring the attention of the students towards the burning social issues.

Scouts and Guide
We at MRA School believe that Scouting develops self- knowledge and the need to explore, to discover world beyond the classroom, tapping the skills of others to learn and to become well rounded citizens. It also helps our young minds to make new friends, have amazing adventures and learn new skills as scouts are do-ers and give-it-a-go-ers. Scouts and Guide is taken care by Mrs. Shashi Bisht and Mrs. Sippy Sharma.
