Academic bunting and tassel color
There is a system of distributing tiffin in the school. The system was introduced first from when its not clear. ‘singara’, ‘samucha’, ‘nimki’, banana, bread, sweets and other various items are served as tiffin. For this a particular amount of money is taken from the students with the academic fees every month and now it is 20 Taka.
The school has a rich library with over 5000 books. Most of them were bought by coeval sanctioned money during the establishment of the school. Beside those many others were bought by annually approved money. But the fact of regret is that by an order declared by the government the post of ‘librarian’ is cancelled in all government schools. So it is unfortunate for the students that although they have a library, they do not have access to that.Fact|date=January 2008
