         Our Home Science Course is directly related and relevant to Women. The diversity of our curriculum is for a very important reason. The objective is to equip our Students of the present plus the later life. Whenever they feel the need to be self-sufficient or supplement the family income, they can the ‘pick-out’ any Subject learnt here and make an earning by Self-Employement. Course contents are imparted without sacrificing tastes and aesthetics.
        As one great gentleman said: ‘A happy family is but an earlier heaven’. We make our Students thus proficient in every sphere of life.
These range from Domestic Health / Nutrition to Home Economics. We assist in Personality Moulding and other areas like:Home Decoration, Home Management, Child Care , First Aid, Clothing, Arts & Craft and Beauty Care. There is also guidance in some spoken English .
