The Council for the Indian School Certificate Examinations (for short ‘Council’) has always stressed on imparting wholesome education to our students. Sports, therefore becomes an integral part of the
curriculum of an CISCE affiliated school.
It is the Council’s aim to provide a suitable platform and an opportunity to all children studying in affiliated schools to showcase their talents and skills in various sporting disciplines. Once identified, the next step is to play on a bigger stage and represent the Council at the annual National School Games conducted by the School Games Federation of India (SGFI) and thereafter at the Khelo India School Games.
