The safety and well-being of the young learners is of paramount importance. Notwithstanding the precautions and safety measures, there are times when students get involved in accidents within the school premises. The accidents could range from simple cuts and injuries to even serious wounds or fracture. Moreover, it is not unlikely for a child to experience indigestion or light-headedness during school hours. Therefore, housing an infirmary furnished with a certified nursing team and First-Aid equipment is a must. An in-school infirmary –
- Acts as a means for quick treatment in a number of cases – bleeding, burns, heatstroke, unconsciousness, muscle injuries, choking, chest pains, asthma, allergic reactions, etc.
- Prevents a situation from worsening. Though First-Aid is a temporary solution, it still prevents a situation from getting worse until the required help arrives
- In a lot of cases, timely First-Aid can preserve the life of the individual

Our health services are extended to both students and staff members with a view of maximizing general health and awareness. Our infirmary is equipped with four beds and state-of-the-art medical equipment to meet the immediate health requirements of a child that may arise during school hours. A certified nurse is responsible for treating and looking after the children. The nurse also maintains a comprehensive record of each student’s medical history. This helps in catering to the unique health needs of every child. In case of emergencies, the student is taken to the nearest hospital while their parents are duly informed.
