CBSE INFORMATION OF OUR SCHOOL
The school year has two terms: April to October and November to March. There will be an examination at the end of each term and a progress report will be issued. All must answer the terminal examination and unit tests. Absence in any test excludes the pupil from being reckoned in the order of merit in an examination. Children who are ill should not be sent to school to attend class or answer the test. Ill health may spread contagion. Every report card must be signed by the parent or guardian and returned within a week of verification. The report card will be handed over only to the parents on the day fixed. Under no circumstances will the report be given to the student. Teaching at GBN is student-oriented project-based, and incorporates the multiple intelligences concept. While the general curriculum is followed by every student, he or she is also encouraged to develop talents and interests in personal areas of academic interest, and in sport, theatre music and dance, for which facilities are outstanding. The adults in our School community make every effort to provide a creative, supportive and positive environment to the students, but a great deal is also expected from you. The challenge will not be narrowly academic but holistic development of the child.

Co-curricular activities form an integral part of the school curriculum and a good number of students participate in one activity or the other so as to tap their innate potential. The School is divided into 4 houses which are named as …./,,,/…./. Regular inter-house competitions are held in dance, music, recitation, calligraphy, drawing, painting, debates and declamation etc. The idea is to inculcate a sense of healthy competition.
