At Indian Public School. the advantages of the house system have been mainfoild. The house provide not only an increased feeling of identity and belonging. They also provide students with a sense of tradition and abundant leadership opportunities.
Our House system has seen a marked change in the the attitude of students as a result of establishment of the house. It inculcates in the students the values of the spirit, commitment, loyalty, sharing and healthy competition. Because of the competition and the identification of each student with a house, there is constant encouragement for students to do their best. The positive attitudes of the students towards one another and toward the school have been quite amazing since the program started. Another benefit of the house system is that leadership opportunities are available to the students.
