The Centre runs a Computer Club that meets every Saturday. The Club conducts events that help in sharing knowledge of the latest technology and arranges industrial visits as well. Its annual exhibition of ‘Best out of Computer Waste’ is a toasted affair on the campus. Students get a platform to showcase their creative skills; a separate section for hardware-based model-making using new technology is demonstrated. As part of the exhibition, the Computer Centre and the Computer Society of India jointly conduct an Elocution and Quiz competitions. The exhibition is open to other schools as well.
The Computer Centre also acts as the technical support for all the on-campus institutions. The best example for this is that it has been instrumental in introducing a successful computerised students election process in the Kishor Vidyalaya. The Centre also conducts computer training programmes for staff members.
