The science club has been started to incorporate better understanding about general health and hygiene issues through daily learning. The primary objective of health club is to create awareness among the student about the value of health, importance of nutrition. We believe that children have the potential to make a change in the outlook of their elders and families. We ensure that all children lead a healthy life in the school as well as outside school premises. Children have the ability to observe, learn and transfer knowledge to each other. We at Sun valley attempt to infuse activity based learning. The teachers involve the students in group discussions and debates in the Interact club. It focuses on four themes including food and nutrition, personal hygiene, physical fitness and environmental awareness. Instead of theoretical knowledge we groom the students through a play module to make the issues interesting.
