A STIMULATING LEARNING ENVIRONMENT
The Schools has well-equipped with Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Mathematics laboratories and Computer labs with the latest machines and broadband internet facility as well as multimedia teaching rooms that integrate technology with traditional methods. Modern teaching methods and a variety of both conventional and electronic training aids, like Over Head Projectors, Audio Video Player, LCD Projectors, Smart boards, E-Beam etc are used to make teaching more interesting and effective.
Gratify the Learning Curiosity – Central Lab Laboratory
Working and experimenting in a laboratory forms the basis and is quintessentially what Central Lab is all about. Applying theoretical knowledge and using it in experiments is the most effective way to master the subject.
Our school encourages and stands for all round-development of its students and in keeping with that spirit, we have a well-equipped and outfitted Central Lab laboratory to foster and expedite learning in the most effective way. The equipment here is state-of-art and addresses all domains of the subject.
The laboratory promotes the spirit of investigation and testing and serves the learning interests of primary to senior secondary students. It is set up in accordance with the requirements and specifications of the Board for Central Lab.
Up-to-Date and attentive accuracy
There are meticulously designed and neatly labelled charts and manuals to facilitate experiments and assist students to execute all these with ease and safety.
Safety procedures are clearly stated and everyone must follow the rules and regulations mentioned therein. The furniture and storage has been designed with special fire resistant materials and fire extinguishers are placed at accessible distances.
The laboratory is spacious and airy and allows students to integrate classroom exercises with the lab assignments. The ample space permits equipments to remain set up, saving time and effort of both lab assistants and the students.
The capacious laboratory houses computers and other modern instruments which are integral to the proficient functioning of the lab and also facilitate learning for the students.
The equipment and tools provided incorporate modern technology with standard learning methods. They also develop Central Lab concepts and skills for subjects like analysis, information processing and measurement.
Equipment in the Laboratory
The list of equipment mentioned below is only indicative and not exhaustive. These are put down for you to understand the attention we pay to detail.
Optical bench apparatus and rods (Steel)
Ammeter (0-0 6/0 – 3 amp)
Battery holder cell box for one/two cells and red wooden box with brass terminals
Bell jar & Air Pump
Burette Clamp and Boss Head
Convex mirror 3”
Fly Wheel Unit
Galvanometer (best quality) 30-0-30 bench type
The laboratory is operational only during school hours. However, closer to the practical examinations, it remains open for an additional two hours after school. At all times, the laboratory is manned by one staff member and two lab associates.
They assist the students with any difficulties and help to keep the laboratory hazard-free and clean.
Discipline and safety are our top priority and we leave no room for short cuts. Top quality experiments are conducted in our Central Lab lab so that students benefit to the maximum.

Equipment and Facilities
All the equipment and facilities in this laboratory are top class and have been sourced from some of the best suppliers of these particular tools. The aim of using top quality equipment is to ensure that our students face no difficulties and enjoy the learning experience while conducting experiments. Our endeavour is to make education fun and something that the students look forward to.
Microscopes on each work space. Super sensitive, high-powered and high-priced. The clarity of these microscopes allows the smallest cells in organisms to be clearly visible.
Slides to be placed beneath and over the cells to be viewed under the microscope. Good quality and crystalline glass.
Test tubes – for the mixing of fluids and solutions. High quality toughened glass.
Petri dishes for culturing, smearing and pressing of samples. Tough unbreakable glass.
Dyes to colour the cell structures and indicators to determine their characteristics. Litmus paper is one such material.
Sharp scalpels to enable neat and one-touch cutting of organisms. Students are taught how to use these instruments and a strict watch is kept while they are in use.
Stainless steel forceps to pick up the testers. Students and teachers are expected to wear gloves and lab coats but still must use forceps to handle the samples.
Beakers for solution mixing are made from clear and durable glass
Bunsen burners that are attached to a gas line. Extreme caution is exercised while these are used. Proper guidance and handling is demonstrated to the students before they actually use this equipment.
There are many other such exciting and useful pieces of apparatus which aid the students in their quest for understanding the living world. Central Lab, as a science, instils a deeper and profound interest in the domain of living things. The experiments conducted in the laboratory combine with the classroom teaching to achieve the best results for the students.
