Boys must be Physically fit if they are to benefit from the education and life of a boarding school. We would like the parents to know that the loss of an active term is not something to worry about or a sign of failing health. There is a well-equipped Hospital with an attached isolation Ward. A trained Sister resides on the premises. A fully qualified Medical Practitioner visits the Hospital daily. Boys are medically checked at the beginning of each term. In addition, the school Medical Officer pays frequent surprise visits to the Kitchen, Bakery and Dining Hall to satisfy himself that the necessary standards in hygiene and cleanliness are maintained. The charges are Rs 100/=per term. Extra charges are made for blood and other tests, X-Rays and for special medicines.
The Tamarind Theater
The theater was inaugurated on 17th March, 1993 on the school’s 67th Founder’s Day. This is a hexagonal brick, stone and concrete open-air theater to seat 1200. It has a Projection room, five activity rooms on the south side, and beneath the five tiered stage on the North are two green rooms and a Sports room with an enclosed verandah. A new Music Room was constructed in 1993 next to the Theater in the multi-storied Ireland House Complex to facilitate easy accessibility for the performances. In1993-1994 a new concrete-roofed Common Room has been constructed for the boys of Bursar House residing in India House. Brick walls have been constructed to protect the playing grounds as well as the Tennis courts, from land erosion.
It would be unfair to the school motto i.e. ‘ Truth is Great ‘, not to report that for reasons beyond comprehension the school progress did not only come to a stand-still but over the next fifteen years witnessed a slide backwards. The school went through very dark and trying times from 1969 to 1976, when the process of regeneration was set in motion. In 1976, Mr. Abhai Singh took over the reins of C.B.S on his return from Canada after the death of Mr.Narendra Singh. An ex-Brownian, well travelled, a keen sportsman, a voracious reader and a strong believer in the dignity of human labour, Abhai Singh`s task was not an easy one. It is to his credit that he modernised living facilities for the boys and staff alike, restructured the Dining Hall, constructed new and better hostels like Ireland House, Patel House, Col.House, White House, Kitchner Block, McIntosh House. Library, the Computer Lab, the Tamarind Open Air Theatre, Tennis and Basket ball courts and underground water tanks to resolve the perennial water shortages have been added. The Boys now wear a different uniform not because the old one had anything wrong with it but that every primary, secondary school in town had copied the old combination of Blues. In order to protect his identity and to keep up with the changing times, new sets of clothes have been issued to the boys to be worn on different occasions the Boys just love their CBS T-shirts. In all the changes that have taken place, Academics has not lost its importance – A good competent staff has helped the school achieve 100% result each year.
The hospital has a resident nurse. A doctor visits the school for regular check-ups and keeps the health record of a child. A panel of doctors is always available on 24 hours notice for any medical emergencies.
The School boasts of an excellent library that provides a vibrant learning environment to the students. The library provides access to many different types of resources, from books and journals to databases as well as an Internet access facility. The library plays a pivotal role in inculcating the reading habit amongst youngsters in the era of information and communication technology.
