“Prevention is better than cure” – is the quote we at AJPS strongly believe, hence we always try and stay prepared with safety measures for fire prevention at all times. Proper extinguishers are always available in case of emergencies. The school also believes in creating awareness among students by conducting periodic Fire drills. Student volunteers and the NCC cadets guide the other students imparting Strategy and direction for quick evacuation during a fire alarm. Students were also trained at the usage of fire-extinguishers and other protection methods from fire.
Fire Safety drills in schools are of critical importance as it helps to do the following –
- To ensure that teacher, students, support staff etc. are aware of the emergency routes and assemble points
- To know the evacuation plan from the school premises
- To ensure that students are able to identify the sounds of Fire alarms
- To ensure that all exits and emergency routes are free from obstructions of any kind
- Creates a window for firemen or wardens to practice their duties
“Hope for the best and prepare for the worst” Safety and Hygiene is the prime concern of the school in every sphere. Still the school always maintains a first aid kit in case of emergencies. The kit contains all the basic requirements which are useful for any immediate assistance. It also provides proper periodic first Aid training for students and faculty team catering to the need of precaution
Health is not about an annual check-up of weight, height, dental hygiene, or a nutrition chart. At AJPS we have a dedicated room, the infirmary room to manage and assess any health issues that may arise during school hours, as the wellbeing of our students is of utmost importance.
In the event of an emergency requiring medical attention, the student will be shifted to the nearest hospital and parents will be informed of the same. Basic first-aid kits have been made available in high risk areas such as the laboratories as well as on the school buses.

Gender Sensitivity Programme
Gender Sensitivity Program at AJPS aims to cultivate values of equality among the students by recognizing women’s role to be as important as men’s in addressing environmental and development issues. The Program works towards sensitizing the students about social gender-based differences and enables them to empower themselves and those around them with awareness and action. The gender perspective is not only relevant to projects where women are the principal target group, but it must also be mainstreamed in all environmental and development programs. We encourage students to examine the systematic discrimination, oppression and prejudice that operate through social norms and practices, that create not just inequality but injustice in their trail.
Life Skills Programme
This unique program focuses on developing learning effective problem-solving and relationship building skills to flourish in a competitive world. The Life Skills Program at Edify consciously equips our students with the skills they need to get through life’s ups and downs with equal ease.

Using a wide variety of methods that range from discussions to film screenings and interactive games, the Program imparts these skills through an experiential approach that involves real-world dilemmas into the classroom, giving our students the extra edge they might need to face adversity and fortune with grace.
Student Wellness Programme
The Student Wellness Programme enables our students to engage with matters of health, hygiene, safety & nutrition in creative ways. The Programme both informs and guides through the lifestyle choices they make, encouraging deeper reflection and thought at every step of the way.
