The senior most appointments are the Head Boy and Head Girl under whose guidance the various groups perform their respective duties. Sports occupies a significant position and the sports appointments are important in promoting the spirit of sportsmanship.This Prefectorial Body comprising nearly 65 members gets selected through an impartial, democratic process. It is voluntary and the selection procedure involves a detailed round of group discussion, 3 interview rounds and even a psychoanalysis test supervised by a group of Faculty members- the Appointment- in-charge and Heads of Departments. In the final round the short listed candidates are interviewed by the Principal. Once selected, the appointments are guided and supervised by faculty members appointed to their specific Club/Society.
