Children will be children !! Bruised knees and elbows, the occasional ill health on campus are all part of school life. We have a well-equipped infirmary where first aid is administered and a nurse is on-call all through the day. The infirmary has sick-beds where children may rest till they are picked up for the day. All minor cuts and wounds are tended to here. Children are attended to with a great deal of love and compassion. We understand how alarming even the smallest of wounds appears to a child, when they are away from home. We take care of them with all the gentleness in the world.
