To foster team spirit and corporate life, a house system operates at UIS. The houses are named after the primary colours of the spectrum. Each child from Std 5 to 12 is assigned a house.
Healthy competition is promoted and children add points to their houses through these inter-house competitions. House captains and vice captains, guided by house teachers, coordinate the affairs of each house.
The Student Council & Prefectural Body
Students elect their leaders from a list of candidates nominated by the teachers. School Captain (Std 12), Head boy and Head girl (Std 10), House Captains (Std 11) and Vice Captains (Std 9) are all elected through secret ballot. A day prior to the elections campaign speeches are made by the candidates.
A prefectural body consisting of 90 prefects are also sworn in along with the student council at a solemn Investiture Ceremony. Badges of office are presented to the office bearers at this ceremony.
The student council along with the prefects help maintain discipline among the students.
Students are given identification cards, with the school emblem on them, which they are expected to wear at all times on a lanyard in their house colours.
The school assembly held every morning gives an opportunity for students to learn skills in organizing, public speaking, corporate effort, leadership, etc.
Each class takes turns at hosting the assembly, to inculcate responsibility among the students.
Special assemblies are organized in connection with days of national and international importance and to celebrate festivals. Students organize special entertainment for teachers on Teacher's Day and teachers do the same on Children's Day.
These occasions are also used to express appreciation for one another.
