1. Bunnies, Cubs (boys) & Bulbuls (girls), Scouts (boys) & Guides (girls)
Students from Kindergarten to Grade VIII are taught to realize the objectives by outlining their duties to self, to others and to God. Progressively, the Bunnnies, Cubs & Bulbuls and Scouts & Guides are encouraged to educate themselves through the defined set of promises and laws, learning by doing group and singular activities based on interest and competencies under an adult sentry and patrolling system.
The Scouting movement was started at Omega International School on 15th June 2012, Cubs & Bulbuls on 8th April 2013 and the Bunny unit on 22nd February 2013. Over the years, this movement has grown to 81 units at Omega and is offered to students based on their age group:
Bunnies: 3-6 years
Cubs & Bulbuls: 6-10 years
Scouts & Guides: 10-17 years, and
Rovers & Rangers: 15-25 years
The school operates the Junior Division (JDA) NCC for boys and girls of Grades VIII to X since 2008. It is a two year elementary military training programme in the Army Wing of the Junior Division Corps for A level certification. Currently we have over 50 boys and over 20 girls who have enrolled as cadets of the JDA and we have had over 600 boys and girls graduate from the program during their schooling at Omega.
The main focus of the NCC is to instil in the cadets the essence of unity and discipline. It aims to develop qualities of character, courage, comradeship, discipline, leadership, secular outlook, spirit of adventure and the ideals of selfless service amongst the youth of the country. NCC helps to create a human resource of organized, trained and motivated youth to provide leadership in all walks of life and be always available for the service of the nation. It also provides a suitable environment to motivate the youth to take up a career in the Armed Forces.
3. Road Safety Patrol
The Road Safety Patrol was inaugurated on the 6th of December 2018. At present there are over 50 cadets (boys & girls) who have enrolled for the program. Training is done in the school campus by the Tamil Nadu Traffic Warden Officers.
The RSP scheme aims at grooming students in road safety rules, equipping them to become better pedestrians and drivers when they grow up. The students’ exposure in the scheme helps them to understand traffic rules better and share their knowledge with fellow students.
