Akshara’s Day Boarding Program facilitates holistic development of the students in their formative years. It provides a combination of academics, hobby and sports skills development which is usually salient feature of a Residential School. But in a residential school the student misses out the family environment.
In the Day Boarding program, the school timing is from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. and the additional hours after regular school hours (i.e. after 3:15 pm disbursal) are optimally utilized for development of advanced skills in the field of sports and fine arts. The students can choose to do one sports activity for two days and one hobby activity for two days from the list below. On Fridays academic support is provided to the students in terms of Advanced/ Remedial teaching/ Language development.

HOBBIES: Guitar, Keyboard, Drums, Drawing, Art & Craft, Robotics, Dance, Dramatics
PERSONALITY DEVELOPMENT : The inherent talent in each child is brought out through exposure to a wide range of games, sports and co-curricular activities. He/ she can decide a hobby of his/her liking and develop the talent to its excellence. Day boarding builds self-confidence, self-discipline, independent approach, the capacity to interact with adults and fellow students and a sense of direction in the students as they spend more quality time in school.
ADVANCED SKILL DEVELOPMENT : School provides ample opportunity for developing and honing the skills under supervision of expert coaches in a safe environment. Child’s time is spent very productively after school on a chosen activity and is not wasted in travelling to various tuition/ coaching/ hobby/ sports classes.
SAFE & FAMILIAR ENVIRONMENT: The students are in a safe and familiar environment after regular school under the supervision of responsible staff.

BALANCED DIET: The School provides a daily healthy and wholesome nutritious diet (i.e. breakfast, lunch and evening snack) to Day Boarders. The child get fresh food, develops good eating habits and dining etiquette.
