The Parent-led Clubs (PLC) are a unique BIS set up through which parents bring their distinct skill sets to play an active role in making learning more fun for the children. Formalised under the leadership of Ms. Priti Merchant, Co-Curricular Coordinator, the children are given opportunities to pursue wider interests, and are encouraged to participate in a minimum of two clubs per academic year.
