Social Empowerment through Work Education and Action (SEWA) aims to develop a whole person in their intellectual, personal, emotional and social growth. Learners engaged in this program are expected to be life-long learners and through experiential and constructive modes of learning benefit from the immediate personal experience and view learning as a process.

The assessment on a three-point scale (Learning, Proficient and Advanced) will be based on the following format

a. The transaction and administering of strand 1 will be done by the school physical education teachers.

b. Strand 2 will comprise an annual health checkup report.

c. Strand 3 is SEWA, i.e. Social Empowerment through Work Education and Action. Thus SUPW/Work Education is subsumed under SEWA where students of classes S1 to SS2 will undertake projects under the guidance of the work education teachers.

d. Health and activity record shall be filled up and submitted by parents, to be maintained as a part of HPE portfolio (file).
