What about the school uniform?
There is no school uniform, but children have “House T Shirts/ Kurtas” in their house colours which they need to wear on Mondays, Tuesdays and Fridays. Voluntary Simplicity is a value we wish to follow at School and children are expected to wear simple clothes commonly accepted by the school community. Details about the dress code are available in the school dairy.
Why don’t you have a school uniform?
Prakriya believes in the individuality of the children and that there is no need to get them to wear a uniform. Moreover, the idea of the uniform came from the army where rigid discipline was required and individuality was prohibited. However, three days a week children are expected to wear their house T Shirts/Kurtas (in the house colours) which has the school logo printed on it. This is more an expression of belonging to a group.
Can I have information about the school bus facility?
Students and teachers take the school bus which follows certain routes from Koramangala, HSR, Sarjapur Road and Marathahalli. Admission is given only to children who stay along the above routes, or within a radius of 10 kms from the school as per Government rules. We also do not wish any child to travel more than 1 hour by bus to reach school.
Bus routes will be displayed at the school office during admissions.
Do you have kitchen facilities?
At Prakriya, in-house kitchen facilities are available to children from Class 2 to 10. A wholesome vegetarian diet is provided - a health drink and a heavy snack in the morning such as idly, dosa, upma, bhelpuri, chappathi rolls etc. and lunch consisting of salad, vegetables, chappathis, dal, rice and buttermilk etc. Processed, junk or very oily foods are not provided.
