We have a vibrant and diverse range of co-curricular activities and active Clubs to support them. We believe that together with academic rigour and sporting opportunities, co-curricular action helps in the holistic development of young children. Learning, making mistakes, failures and successes are a critical part of growth.

Learning the Ropes of Commerce

BIFROST is held to improve and stimulate a student's corporate skills and to provide them with an opportunity to explore the principles of commerce. This year 'Underground Economy' was the theme of the fest and 15 different events explored the functioning of the underground economy - now a major part of the global commerce structure.

This year's BIFROST offered a simulation of the corporate sector to its participants through the three flagship events - Simulation, Ragnarok and Law. Simulation was a fresh concept in the current commerce fest circuit, whereby the participants had to put to test their corporate skills in order to climb the corporate ladder and were required to display their capabilities in all commerce related activities. Ragnarok, an event introduced in this edition of Bifrost, tested the participants’ aptitude in solving the problems that come their way. Law, another debut event simulated the growing relevance and importance of law in the corporate sector. A beautifully presented trailer set the mood for the events to follow. Besides the three neo-events, the competitive events included Best Manager, Public relations, Marketing, Finance, Human Resources, Business Quiz, Crises Management, Product launch and Brand Makeover. With 39 schools participating and a footfall of 680 participants, the fest which took fledgling steps in the year of inception has risen to greater heights of glory.

The chief guest for the opening ceremony was Mr Irfan Razack, Old Boy (Batch of 1968) and Chairman and MD of the Prestige Group. He gave a thought provoking speech, encouraging participants to grab opportunities when given to them. He used the analogy of the ‘Tea Bag’ in order to teach a number of life skills.

The award ceremony and the closing were presided over by Prof M V Rajeev Gowda, Old Boy (Batch of 1978), politician, academician, MP in the Rajya Sabha and national spokesperson for the Indian National Congress. He reminisced about his life as a student at SJBHS and motivated students to know the value of self-worth and hard work.

In Norse mythology Bifrost, , refers to the rainbow bridge that serves as the nexus between Asgard and the other realms of the Universe. Using the same equivalence, SJBHS believes in networking to reach the pinnacle in commerce practices from a basic school level.

Our school holds many festivals around different disciplines to enhance learning within the classroom. We believe that a holistic education includes exposure to cross disciplinary events; our student's learn many important skills and lessons while organising, conducting and participating in these.

The SJBHS Model United Nations (MUN) has become a landmark event among Bangalore schools. The MUN is an opportunity for students to engage with diplomacy and world affairs. The power to change and influence lies with our youth; History has shown us that it is young people who can change things and MUN is a perfect opportunity to learn about parliamentary procedures and government functioning, thus becoming more aware citizens. Many critical skills such as public speaking, negotiation and communication are essential for future studies and jobs. They also help build confidence and relationships in all areas of life. Further, academic skills such as research and background checking which are used by MUN participants will hold them in good stead through life. Writing skills also get polished in the process.

Phenomenon is our much awaited inter school Cultural Festival with competitions in dance, music, photography, creative writing, debating and filmmaking among others. Game stalls, bouncing castles, tattoo artistes and magic shows along with gourmet and street food stalls make the occasion a happy and vibrant one.

In 2018, we performed a musical – Billy Elliot – with professional direction and production. Our students regularly trained in music and singing and there is a Music Room and trained teachers for the same.

Our annual festival on science and technology – Transcendence 2019 has quizzes, coding and gaming among other events. At Eukranium – our high school science fest – we bring in eminent scientists to speak on innovation and change. There are events for every student of high school from ‘Haywire’, the model competition, to ‘Say Watt’, ‘Vertigo’, ‘Brain Strain’ and ‘Vertigo’ and more.

Our Commerce fest - Bifrost - is held over two days and sees participation from many schools. The fest aims to connect the various aspects of commerce, such as Marketing, Finance, Human Resources and Public Relations. Individual events - Best Manager and Simulation as well as Product Launch, Crisis Management, Brand Makeover and Best Manager give students a glimpse of the commercial world ahead and the challenges in it.

There are various Clubs conducted across the school, tailored to the age groups attending them.

For high school boys there are clubs in Maths, Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Literary Activities, Cookery, Carpentry, History, Kannada, Computers, Craft, Gardening and Dramatics. Established professionals are invited as guests so that our boys can interact and gain skills.
