Life during weekdays
Nestled in the serene environs of Sal forests, Riverside Campus provides the required conducive ambience to its students. Living in the lap of nature, students not only imbibe positivity but also display a calm temperament.
The day at Riverside begins with the students welcoming the dawn of the new day with new hopes and renewed energy. After waking up at 6:00 am, students assemble at the main field for their morning exercise at 6:30 am. Thirty minutes of light exercise in the morning and inhaling unpolluted oxygen keeps the students and instructors fit and active. With enough time for bathing and dressing up, students reach the school mess at 7:45 am for the first wholesome meal of the day. The formal academic routine begins at 8:30 am when all students and faculty assemble at ‘The Colosseum’ for the morning assembly. The academic and co-curricular schedule runs from 9:00 am to 3:45 pm with adequate intervals for the Fruit Break and Lunch Break. All day boarders leave after the classes whereas boarders proceed to the mess for their evening refreshment.
After a rest of forty five minutes, boarders are actively engaged from 4:30 pm to 6:00 pm in evening games and sports, in their chosen discipline. A quick bath again refreshes them for the evening prep classes from 6:30 pm to 7:50 pm.
Students then move to the mess again for a relaxing chat with their friends over dinner. After saying the ‘Grace’ at 8:30 pm, students unwind as they walk towards their respective hostels with their friends, wardens, teachers and House Masters. The day ends with an hour of self study at the bed side tables in the dorms. Lights out at 10:00 pm ensures eight hours sleep that is necessary for the proper growth of a child.
The most awaited days are Saturdays and Sundays, Phone calls, TV viewing, personal grooming and hygiene checks , setting of dorms, cupboard cleaning , games, evening walks, friendly chats with House Mothers and of course a morning prep on Sunday.
Outing with parents is scheduled for the Last Saturday of every month. Students can leave on Friday evening after school and return on Sunday. In this manner boarders can spend two days with their parents every month. Students not going for outings with parents are taken for local outings (mall/picnic/movie) by their wardens and house mothers.

- Summer Break
- Third week of May to second week of July. (50 days)
- Winter break
- Third week of December to end of January (40 days)
