It is our intention that in Sherwood, children should, by worship and instruction, be led to personal knowledge of the Indian Culture and love towards Humanity, Nature and Animals. Moral instructions included in the curriculum play a vital role in inculcating such attitude and do not carry any religious bias.
Morning Assembly everyday and meditation classes during excursions away from home and school, play an effective role in helping the children to acquire Spiritual Strength.

The Annual Day is an opportunity for each and every child to display the talent. It helps children overcome stage-fright and be confident and self-assured in attitude and demeanour.
Annual Days in Sherwood are Grand Events and ensure that all the students are given ample opportunity to participate in at least one event. But beyond the flamboyance and the grandeur, lies the overriding objective of inculcating qualities of time management, coordination and confidence among the students.
