Panaji: August 22, 2018 … Information Officer of Department of Information & Publicity, Shri John Aguiar said that whether it is the Government job, or the entrance exam of any course, General Knowledge and Current Affairs have a vital role to play.

The House system, Shri Aguiar said is generally used to increase a healthy competitive spirit among students belonging to different houses. It makes every student an integral part of the school and is responsible equally to contribute.
