First TermFirst week of June to Second week of September

Weekly Schedule and Daily Routine:

The School’s academic activities are scheduled only for five days a week – Monday through Friday.
In case of unprecedented holidays declared during the weekdays the week’s Saturday will be converted into the working day as a compensative measure. The same will be intimated to the parents through the student’s hand-book.
The daily routine is designed to cultivate good habits in the students to develop in them the capacity for self education to progressively develop their mental and physical capabilities and to provide time for recreation.
Each working day – Monday to Friday – consists of two sessions – Morning (Forenoon) Session and Afternoon Session. Each session will have an interval of 10 minutes.

Morning Session9.10 a.m. to 12.30 p.m.
Lunch Break12.30 p.m. to 1.00 p.m.
Afternoon Session1.00 p.m. to 3.20 p.m. (UKG to II)
1.00 p.m. to 4.00 p.m. (III to XII)

Students should be in their respective classrooms before 9.10 a.m. Latecomers (permissible between 9.10 a.m. and 9.20 a.m.) should surrender their handbooks to the student volunteers at the main gate. If late beyond 9.25 a.m., they should either be accompanied by their parents or should bring a letter of explanation from the parents.

Attendance will be taken five minutes after the beginning of each session. Those who are not present at the roll call will be marked absent for that session. Students who report late will be permitted to attend class only with the permission of the Senior Principal.

Students representing the school and participating in external competitions, cultural programmes, sports and games, attending seminars, camps or educational tours will be given full attendance. The classes that the student missed will be compensated. However no special / extra classes will be organised by the school for the students who are absent for their own reasons.

Working Pattern of Lower Kinder Garten (LKG Classes):

LKG classes in St. John’s are taught in a ‘play-way’ method and we follow a definite curriculum of learning in a proper classroom atmosphere with emphasis on writing skill, conversation skill, oral work coupled with recreation activities.

LKG classes are conducted for only one session i.e. Morning Session (Forenoon) and they will be working between 9.10 a.m. and 12.20 p.m. with a break of 15 minutes for snacks, drinks etc.


Absentees who have not obtained prior permission will be dealt seriously. If absence is unavoidable on account of illness or any other reason a letter of explanation must invariably and immediately be sent to the Senior Principal or brought at least on returning to school. In case of continuous absence for ten days without information, the absentee’s name shall be struck off the roll. If re-admitted he / she has to pay the re-admission fee.

75% of attendance is compulsory for promotion to the next class.
