The TISB International Convention Centre is the centerpiece of the school’s art centre. With 1,400 seats, state-of-the art lighting and sound systems, an immense stage which has supported plays with a cast of 300 and more, this beautiful air-conditioned, wi-fi enabled hall is surrounded by an art gallery, art, music and drama studios and an amphitheater just outside. On the other side of the campus, we also have a 400-seat air conditioned theatre for smaller scale events. TISB has hosted major international teacher-training conferences in the Convention Centre, which is in use every day of the week for assemblies, drama and music practices, cultural performances and much more.
The TISB library is an educational and cultural environment where individuals are exposed to ideas through the use of print and non-print resources in many media formats. The library provides curricular support by the provision of materials, collaborative curricular support through consultation with teachers, informal instruction and individual mentoring, communication with faculty, online and library oriented research support during and after school hours, as well as the fostering of a life long love of reading.
Underlying all of this is, of course, the very basic function of maintaining and circulating the library collection. Our mission is to offer learning services, books and resources that enable all members of the school community to become critical thinkers and effective users of information in all formats and media.
The TISB Library collection continues to expand in all formats. We now offer students and faculty more than 44000 resources including Books, Bound Volumes, Audio Cassettes, Video Cassettes, DVDs, CD-ROMS, etc. We also subscribe to a number of magazines and Newspapers.Thousands of fiction and non-fiction books, teacher resources, and reference items are added to the collection every year.
The 24/7 Wi-Fi facility in the library allows users to access Internet-based information any time. We have a bank of computers with high-speed internet connectivity, and a stock of laptops for the use of faculty in the classroom. We also provide Digital Library Resources to the school community.
At TISB the sporting infrastructure is second to none in India. Immaculately groomed fields for cricket, football and hockey are only the beginning of the experience: we also have courts for tennis, volleyball, badminton, and squash and a superb swimming pool, snooker/billiards room, a gymnasium, a yoga room, plus a vast space for cross-country running and other outdoor pursuits.
Our teams are very successful in well-coordinated local fixtures, but we also compete nationally and internationally with the best sporting schools and very frequently we attract VIP sports personalities to our major events. Foreign sporting exchanges occur regularly and we have accommodation facilities for major sporting tournaments.
Our Physical Education staff are highly committed to fitness and wellness. They have vast experience in drawing out the best sporting instincts in students and getting all children involved in what is a superb social as well as physical activity. Teamwork and sportsmanship skills are at the heart of the programme.
Early morning activities at sunrise are a key element of every boarder’s life. They provide a daily opportunity to commune with nature at its finest hour and to build strength and energy for the day ahead.
Expert chefs prepare delicious vegetarian and non-vegetarian Indian and Continental dishes for our students and staff. Hygiene and quality are absolute priorities and the food at TISB is fresh, wholesome, nutritious and plentiful. Special treats are often in store from our team of chefs, and all meals are served under the supervision of teaching and boarding staff.
Our Kitchen and dining facilities have been completely updated in 2009 to include the most sophisticated and modern equipment used by the top hotels around the world.
Science is taught as an experimental subject at TISB. That means that students spend most of their time in the labs actively experiencing science, rather than passively having it demonstrated to them by the teachers. In our three brand-new state-of-the-art laboratories for Chemistry, Biology and Physics, all students learn how to design and execute their own experiments, record their findings and draw up scientific reports. The labs are equipped with the latest technological devices in order to support cutting-edge experimentation. A strong emphasis on scientific method is inculcated in students from the very beginning, and the three sciences are taught separately from Grade 6 onwards. There is also an excellent Primary Science Laboratory in the Primary School, which is also in constant use.
As a 24/7 boarding school, we take our commitment to the health and well-being of our students extremely seriously. Two full-time nurses live in our eight-bed medical centre and a doctor is always on call. For emergencies we have a driver and vehicle ready round the clock. Parents will always be called immediately in the case of any serious medical issue. The nurses bring students to clinics and hospitals for check-ups and tests as required. All medicines are stored securely in the medical centre and no student is permitted to have medicine in their study bedrooms. All precautions are taken to ensure that each child is healthy and cared for with sensitivity and positivism by our professional staff.
Parents should rest assured when they send their children to TISB because every student is cared for at all times. In School, all teachers, in addition to Form Tutors, care not only about their subject area but also about how each student is coping. This becomes easier as there are not more than 25 students to a class.
In addition to carefully selected and trained experienced teachers who are entrusted with the responsibility of caring for the students, there are Heads of department, Curriculum Coordinators, College Counselors, Boarding House Masters/Mistresses, House Parents and a senior management team to look after the daily needs of each child.
There is also a Medical Centre that looks after the specific needs of students who may be ill or who may need attention periodically.
The system of caring is based very much on the family, where parents constantly look after their children and are worried about their every need. The staff and the facilities on campus, especially the residential program and the supervision system it uses, all work together to offer an atmosphere that is warm and caring.
At TISB, students have access to quality, all-round education and personal attention from teachers who are recruited from worldwide from wherever the best can be recruited. Many staff reside in the campus and are on call day and night throughout the week.
High quality bus provision carries a large number of Day Boarders to the school.
Kindergarten students on an afternoon trip have a round route. The drop off stop may not be the same as the pick up stop. Please get in touch with our Transport Department for clarification.
Parents are requested to kindly wait at the pick-up/drop off points at least 5 minutes in advance.
TISB is a green campus which harvests its water and recycles it via our specialist water treatment plant. The laundry service is hygienic and dependable, turning around thousands of articles of clothing daily. All student clothing is tagged for identification purposes and students are taught the importance of looking after their personal hygiene and space, including managing their laundry, so that that they have a sense of independence, which is an important development for any boarder. Houseparents help to encourage students to manage their lives independently.
