Schools are centers of learning and the word "learning" must encompass all there is to learn. In other words, education received in schools cannot be strictly restricted to academics and must also include skills necessary for a successful career and life.
We have four houses: VARIHASPATI HOUSE, VISHWAMITTERA HOUSE, DRONA HOUSE & VASHISHTHA HOUSE. School house will have students of different streams and make them come together during meetings and events. This increases the peer boundary of a student from one single classroom. Again, being associated with a single entity even when students come from different streams inspires a sense of unity. Students learn to respect their peers, starting observing the advantage of a group and develop a sense of working together with different people to achieve a common goal, which is generally winning the House Cup.
Every house needs house captains who lead and motivates the rest of the house members. The captains are senior students who manage the entire house consisting of students of all grades and different capabilities. They are in charge of finding the right student for the right task, maintaining in-house discipline and lead from the front as an example. Even though the responsibilities are simpler as compared to the outside world, but the leadership skills attained will be invaluable. The captains practice leadership while the rest of the members can learn from their leaders.
The benefits are undeniable and students who have been a part of a school with clubs and houses can cope with the real-world challenges better. It is a matter of starting the preparation early and being ready for the situation. A student who has already identified his/her leadership skills will never back down from a managerial role. Similarly, the sense of teamwork will remain with students when they take on more difficult challenges and will already know how to blend in.
