Super Astro-turf facilities
Our school is proud to be the first in the suburbs of Mumbai to have an astro-turf ground for both hockey and football. Students can use the facilities for developing their sporting skills.
Our library’s objective is to inculcate the habit of reading; children are introduced to the library and books right from the Kindergarten level. They realize the joys of reading as well as the importance of books, in their formative years itself.
Reference books are also kept to help students with their course studies. The cataloging and issue procedure in the library is through library cards. Students at St. Andrews are encouraged not only to pursue reading but also to develop the art of story-telling, enacting and reading aloud.
This chapel is located on the 1st floor of the main school building. It provides a place for quiet meditation and calm.
To further opportunities for our boys to enhance their English language skills through audio visual means, the language lab was founded.
The students have access to various modules that are pre-loaded for them. Classes are open to students once a week.
With donations from our Alumni, we were able to start a Robotics Labs to ignite the imagination of our students in this new field. The students are provided with kits which they can use to create their robots. These robots are then programmable using software. Students have access to the lab once a week.
The purpose of the Solarium is to be the nerve center for spreading sunshine. We have a dedicated coun”solar” Aditi Nadkarni who works with the students through the course of the year to ensure that they are on track to achieve their goals. Fr. Joseph Pimenta too spends time as a coun”solar” and mentor of the program.
At St. Andrews the emphasis is on quality education and this tradition is reflected very clearly in our Computer Department also. We have made it a point to keep our children abreast with the fast paced changes in the computer world, rather than making them follow the stereo-type computer syllabus. We want to nurture creative and thinking minds that are forever exploring new realms in the computer arena.
The best computers with apt software have been installed to give the students a cutting edge over others in this field. No wonder most of our parents have accepted their children as their computer gurus!
Expressive Art Room
Realising that each child is blessed with a unique set of talents, the Expressive Art room is meant to ignite the creative imagination of our boys.
The game room is most often utilized during the rainy season, when playing outdoors is not possible. Nothing like a game of foozball, carom or table tennis to blow off some steam.
We have 2 Science Labs. A student’s inquisitive mind is not satiated easily. Doing things practically is one way of satisfying his curiosity. Our laboratories are just right for children starting out to find common ground between theory learnt in class and its practical application. Our Science Labs are spacious, airy and well-equipped.
Open space, fresh air, voices cheering and spirits soaring is what you will see on our playgrounds. These days with little or no play area and time as well; we have ensured that our children do not miss out on it at school also. We have a huge play area which accommodates a football field, a hockey field, 2 basketball courts, an athletic track, 1 volleyball court, 1 indoor badminton court, table tennis room, Chess room, Gym and a cricket pitch as well.
Another unique Andrean innitiative!
Realising that parents need to keep in touch with their sons after school hours as they attend follow on activities, in another first, our school has launched “SoSafe”. A mobile locker unit provided to students to keep their mobiles safe while they attend class.
We have one school auditorium in the school building. Open forums, lectures by eminent personalities, debates, elocutions, seminars and workshops for our students, teachers and parents form an important part of the school curriculum. Each and every class goes to the AV Room once a week and there some relevant topic is screened for them to watch, learn and enjoy. We are constantly adding to our audio-visual library to give the best exposure to our children.
