The Interact Club of South Point High School is most active throughout the year. Apart from its annual fest, Udaan and Vrrikshya, the Club organises many useful social and cultural activities. The members – drawn from Classes IX to XII – are always into literary, charity, greening and fund-raiser drives while being at the forefront on Independence Day, in visiting old age homes and orphanages, in cleaning the School premises, in organizing fun events and excursions for underprivileged children and in attending awareness rallies. Their performance at various inter-school fests is consistently commendable. The aim is to fly high and touch newer skies.
The Nature Club of South Point High School is dedicated to all things green, clean and natural. Members of the Club are taken for environmental excursions where they go bird watching and appreciating the beauty and importance of nature. Lending hands to High School Interact Club members, they organize Udaan and Vrrikshya, the annual Inter-School Fest. Attending nature-based workshops, environment-related seminars, inter-school fests and competitions where nature and environment are the essential themes is on the Club’s agenda. The members also get busy at the Art and Craft Exhibition, where they put the thinking caps on to uphold and exhibit projects on global warming, recycling waste, conservation of natural resources and other similar issues.
To improve confidence, visual memory, concentration, listening skills and to inculcate love for numbers, Abacus – an ancient tool used for calculations – and Brain Gym Programme are there for pupils of Classes II to VIII at the South Point School premises. These optional classes are held on Saturdays and are conducted by SIP Academy Pvt. Ltd., the Indian wing of SIP Academy, Malayasia.
Bulbuls and Cubs
Students of Classes I to V may join the Bulbul Flock and Cub Pack. Classes are held on Saturday mornings. Interested guardians may meet the teachers concerned for enrolment of their wards. Sporting a Bulbul and Cub badge at Investiture ceremonies is a moment of pride for Pointers.
The Helping Hand
Social service features in a big way in the South Point calendar throughout the year. Pointers- celebrating sharing and giving – spend much time reaching out to the old, the infirm and the underprivileged sections of society. Starting from the little ones of Class I to the senior pupils, the involvement is equally deep and heartfelt. Through DaanUtsav, which ushers a weeklong festival of giving on Gandhi Jayanti every year, they send gifts to various NGOs, visit old age homes, centres for HIV-affected children, orphanages as well as other homes sheltering underprivileged children. DaanUtsav brought cheers as South Point School received a DaanUtsavSamman in 2017. The effort and dedication that all Pointers put in to bring education to underprivileged children have brought School the DaanUtsavShikshaSamman. The School’s endeavour to impart education to the students of Sandipan, the free evening school run by South Point Foundation, as well as to the students of the KMCP School at Hazra Road, has been applauded. The thread of sharing and giving becomes stronger with the Missionaries of Charity, the Little Sisters of the Poor and many other social welfare organisations every year. Through the Reaching Out social service project, pupils try to help several other centres too. The death anniversary of SatikantaGuha, Founder-Rector of South Point, is always observed on 8 January every year through a string of social service projects by SPHS students.
The Priyamvada Birla Scholarship will be awarded every year, starting from 2013, to meritorious students belonging to the low income group, pursuing their studies in under-graduate courses in Colleges and Institutes in West Bengal on Merit cum Means Basis.
