Our objective in the field of studies is to develop in our girls strong
attitudes of self-reliance and confidence with personal and concentrated study
habits; to stimulate them to creative original thinking, that later in life they
make their contribution to the good of their neighbourhood,
of society and in some measure, ever to the good of the country.

THE SCHOOL COUNCIL:
SERVANNES evolved in July 1982 to give a larger number of senior students an opportunity for leadership.
Offices in the Student Body of Anne’s are not to be sought for status and power, but for service.
The Student Governing Body SERVANNES is a student devised set-up, purely voluntary and drawn from Stds. VIII, IX, X. it’s objective is service before self. Servannes is divided into as many portfolios as will cover the curricular and extra-curricular schedules. A Group of students (restricted in number and form Stds. VIII, IX, X) with a Leader (from Std. X) handle one portfolio.
In the month of Feb./March, consultative votes for the Office of Leaders are submitted by the students of Std. IX. These votes are balanced with the opinion of the principal and the staff in a special meeting.
The House System has been retained in order to foster among the students a healthy ambition and a spirit of competition for involvement in studies, sports, co-curricular and extra-curricular activities.
The Four Houses are distinguished one from another by their respective names, colours and ideals.

Each House has a Leader, who is also a member of Servannes.
Regular meetings of the Portfolios are conducted by a staff in-charge. Uninvolved members in the portfolio may be asked to discontinue.
To avoid the danger of students becoming too House conscious and developing an unhealthy competitive spirit, a Prime Leader is named by and from the members of SERVANNES. It is the duty of the Prime Leader to supervise the working of every House so that she ensures as far as possible that every girl, no matter to what House she belongs, strives towards the same goals – namely:
discipline….that is directed by personal conviction and decision.
a good school spirit….that is honestly manifested at all times.
academic efficiency….which is the result of a love learning and which embraces the discipline of study.
involvement….in all the school programmes and projects as a mark of appreciation and gratitude to Anne’s.
relationship….that is one of genuine concern, caring and sharing with each other with great sensitivity for the feeling of others in order to build up closely knit school family.
PORTFOLIOS AND RESPONSIBILITIES:
The meetings are presided over by the Principal or the Prime Leader.
Leaders share the problems they encounter in the execution of their duties; plan
the organization of their extra-curricular activities; evaluate each activity
for which they are responsible and arrive at solutions for the next programme.
The duty of each Leader is to spread good spirit, enthusiasm for work,
devotion to duty and co-operation in the members of the House.
The House Member:
Though the duties of a Leader
are manifold and much depends on her for the proper running of the school, the
ordinary House Member has in no way a less important par to play. True, the
burden of responsibility does not fall so heavily on her shoulders, yet, if she
fails in her duty, she impedes not only her own progress, but also that of her
House and perhaps even that of her School.
Every girl in the school must never lose sight of the fact that her efforts to promote the welfare of her House should not prevent her from pulling together with the girls of other Houses, towards keeping Anne’s banner flying high.
