The Computer Laboratory is an integral part of the curriculum right from the Kindergarten in SVIS. This being IT Era makes it essential for everybody to be computer literate. Networking, C.D.Rom facilities classify of conception and helps the student to explore the world of information and knowledge.
A computer lab is a space which provides computer services to a defined community. Computer labs are typically provided by libraries to the public, by academic institutions to students who attend the institution, or by other institutions to the public or to people affiliated with that institution.
Users typically must follow a certain user policy to retain access to the computers. This generally consists of the user not engaging in illegal activities or attempting to circumvent any security or content-control software while using the computers.
In public settings, computer lab users are often subject to time limits, in order to allow more people a chance to use the lab, whereas in other institutions, computer access typically requires valid personal login credentials, which may also allow the institution to track the user's activities.
Computers in computer labs are typically equipped with internet access, while scanners and printers may augment the lab setup. Computers in computer labs are typically arranged either in rows, so that every workstation has a similar view of one end of the room to facilitate lecturing or presentations, or in clusters, to facilitate small group work.
In some cases, generally in academic institutions, student laptops or laptop carts take the place of dedicated computer labs, although computer labs still have a place in applications requiring special software or hardware not practically implementable in personal computers.

The S.V.International School has well equipped Science Laboratory to develop scientific attitude through practical learning for students. The School laboratory investigations will provide students an experience in the laboratory, class room, or the field that will provide students with the opportunities to interact directly with natural phenomena.
It is imperative for schools to have the latest and high quality science lab supplies these days. Science is different from any other subject. In order to understand its concepts, one has to look beyond the books and conventional classroom teaching. Effective teaching and learning of science involves seeing, handling, and manipulating real objects and materials. The knowledge that kids attain in classrooms would be ineffectual unless they actually observe the process and understand the relationship between action and reaction.
Effective teaching and learning of science involves a perpetual state of show and tell. Good schools combine classroom teaching with laboratory experiments to ensure that their students grasp each and every concept thoroughly. It is also believed that laboratory teaching and experiments that are being conducted there help encourage deep understanding in children. Children are able to retain the knowledge for longer when they see the experiments being performed in front of their eyes.
Science lab equipment allows students to interact directly with the data gathered. They get a first-hand learning experience by performing various experiments on their own. Students are made to use the models and understand different scientific theories and concepts. It is also found that school science lab equipment and supplies make teaching and learning easy both for the teachers, as well as for the students. There are several scientific theories and concepts that are difficult to explain directly from the books. Anatomy models, physics science kits, and chemistry science kits for instance make it easy to understand the otherwise complex theories of science.
By virtue of equipping themselves with the latest and the advanced materials and supplies, schools are able to contribute a lot in the scientific advances yet to come. The advances and developments in the field of medical science and technology would not take place if schools did not prepare brilliant and dedicated scientists and researchers. Children develop interest in scientific research in science labs. When they observe various things and carry out different experiments, their reasoning skills are honed and they start thinking deeply on those theories and concepts. Schools thus play a vital role in bringing up the next generation of engineers and doctors.
To conclude, schools must have the latest science lab supplies and equipment to make science interesting and effective for students and to encourage them to make significant contributions in the field of physics, biology, chemistry, and other streams of science later in life.
The importance of advanced science lab equipment in School labs.
A school library (or a school library media center) is a library within a school where students, staff, and often, parents of a public or private school have access to a variety of resources. The goal of our school library media center is to ensure that all students and other members of the school community have equitable access "to books and reading, to information, and to information technology." A school library media center "uses all types of media... is automated, and utilizes the Internet [as well as books] for information gathering."
School libraries are distinct from public libraries because they serve as "learner-oriented laboratories which support, extend, and individualize the school's curriculum...
S V International School's library serves as the center and coordinating agency for all material used in the school."
Researchers have demonstrated that school libraries have a positive impact on student achievement through the more than 60 studies that have been conducted in 19 U.S. states and one Canadian province. The major finding of these studies was that students with access to a well-supported school library media program with a qualified school library media specialist, scored higher on reading assessments regardless of their socio-economic statuses. In addition, a study conducted in Ohio revealed that 99.4% of students surveyed believed that their school librarians and school library media programs helped them succeed in school. A report that reported similar conclusions was compiled by Michele Lonsdale in Australia in 2003.
Library & Reading Room
S.V. International School`s Library serves as the center and co-ordinating agency for all material used in school.
When a child says adieu to his colourful word of toys and tattoos, and welcomes and unexplored world with inquisitive eyes, he should be handed a book. It is not always possible for parents to gift this treasure to their dear ones. Keeping this in mind, the SVIS has designed a specious, colourful, knowledgeable world of books throwing light on various subjects.
The word `Library` gives an impression of a stuffy room packed with books, No, the meaning changes when you see the Library that is heart of our school.
The importance of advanced library.
S.V. International School has provision of smart board in each class. The most effective instructional approach for a particular classroom is one that best attends to each students needs, the use of Smart Board Technology will supplement a teacher`s lesson plan and activities, and enhance all of the attributes a teacher already does well.
The Smart Board will allow both students and teachers immediate feedback; student`s interaction with the board show comprehension and can identity problem areas. This technology will bridge sometimes nearly insurmountable barrier that inhabits many students from capturing information and recalling Key concepts, `A Student as a teacher to their classmates is enhanced by this technology because student can display a variety of work samples and projects`
These `shared learning experiences` will have dramatic effects on classroom community building and student relationships with their peers further exemplifying the necessity in social interaction.
S V International School campuses pose many unique challenges when it comes to security. A video surveillance system must be carefully planned out in order to keep watch over the diverse assortment of facilities that comprise a typical campus community
From dormitories and libraries to sports complexes and sprawling student grounds, there's a lot to look after. A system of properly installed campus security cameras will go a long way in ensuring the safety of students, faculty, and facilities on campus.
