Keeping in line with school philosophy, there is an extensive belief that it is as important to be competitive and creative in the classroom as well outside it. Numerous opportunities are provided to students during their study at New Era to develop and nurture talents be it in sport, music, film making, mountaineering etc. We at New Era always encourage our students to follow their passions and to be bold and confident to go after what they wish to achieve. Confidence building is just as crucial to overall success as good grades and we hope to inspire all our students to leave as fully developed, well rounded young adults upon their graduation from the school .
Sport has a much greater role in the development of students in terms of character building properties and personality building traits necessary in all citizens of the future.
