  1. Boarders (students living in hostels) are required to follow a pre-determined routine from getting up in the morning to sleeping at night. This routine is prepared by the school on the basis of previous experiences. It is based on the assumption that disciplined way of living is better than the undisciplined/erratic way of living. It is time tested fact, accepted by everyone. It is the responsibility of the school to educate the students about the importance of daily routine.
  2. Education means the all round development of the personality. Educationists believe that success depends upon the life skills that we learn during our education in the school. That is why we are very particular about the daily routine. Since, we are responsible for 24×7 hours/days planning of students living in hostel, we are emphasizing  on the strict follow up of daily routine that teaches the boarders, different life skills which contribute a lot to their success in life.
    Daily routine determined by HAPS requires the student living in hostel to get up early in the morning. One needs to adopt it as a ritual, without asking for reasons. It is the experience of every right thinking person that we must get up early in the morning. No second thought about it.
    Many students want to study up to late hours in the night. These are the students who don't follow their daily routine strictly. It is not the number of hours but the quality of study that matters. Every student requires 6 to 7 hours of sleep daily. This must be obtained between 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. Cutting short the sleep hours is going to affect student's health as well as their alertness in the class.
    a) Efficiency of learning is lowered.
    b) Adversely affects both the mental and the physical health.
    c) Adversely affects the alertness during the day.
    We fall ill when we lead undisciplined life and do not follow the daily routine and are not careful about daily exercises, eating, sleeping etc. Irregular/erratic living is likely to lead to illness. The daily exercise is must for everyone. If one wishes to be healthy, mentally as well as physically fit, one must adopt daily exercises as a routine. Do not ask for reasons.
    Schools all over the world are being advised to educate the children to avoid junk food. We can't be an exception. Boarders are advised to avoid junk food.
    Often, when a student is caught on the wrong foot he/she makes excuses and tells lies. When the students do so, the school ultimately comes to know about it. It is better to confess the guilt and mend one's ways rather than to continue making excuses or telling lies. School tries to educate the students through different programmes.
    In the hostel TV will be allowed to be used only as a source of education and not as a tool for wasting time. Students/residents are advised to select games/sports for themselves and use the same for introducing breaks in the daily routine and use them as a source of entertainment. Every student must select game/sports/hobby and follow it up very faithfully. School as well as hostel staff will help the students in doing so.
