Periodic trips to Bal Bharati Activity Centre at Solan(HP) are organized for students of various classes. These trips encourage community living and also provide an opportunity to students to engage themselves in fun filled activities like rock climbing, wall climbing, river crossing etc.
There is a full time doctor and a nurse available during school hours, in the Medical Room. In the case of an emergency or where an ailment requires a specialistís attention, the student is immediately transferred to the Ganga Ram Hospital with which the school shares an abiding contract. A periodical medical check up is conducted for each student. A record for the same is maintained systematically and shared with the respective parents.
The school takes care to cater to the commuting needs of students . Consequently, the buses ply on various routes. In each bus, a school teacher also travels in addition to an attendant(conductor) to ensure safety of the students.
BBPS is one of the few schools in Delhi to have a tuck shop which does not serve junk food. Rather, a healthy and nutritious menu approved by the school authorities awaits students during recess time. This includes juices and shakes besides food items like Idli, sandwich, dhokla etc. These items are of good quality and are also reasonably priced.

The school provides counselling in the following areas:
a) Counselling for students
We aim at preventive rather than a curative approach to counselling. In this regard, the Life Skills Program at school covers aspects such as decision making and assertiveness training for students of classes VI-X. It is conducted by the counsellor and trained student counsellors or the peer moderators( under the Max Healthcare Peer Moderator Program).
Counselling for students focuses on two aspects- Individual counselling sessions for those who are referred by self or teachers and secondly, Group Counselling sessions related to Stress Management, Time Management, Cyber Crime and various other aspects.
In addition, Career Counselling sessions related to the various upcoming fields are held regularly, thereby enabling students to make informed career choices.
Plan for special children
Special children( students with learning disability, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, slow learners etc.) are identified by class teachers using a referral form. The school counsellor after analyzing the referral form, observes the child and identifies the need for counselling or special education for the child and accordingly ensures the intervention. The special educator in conjunction with the school counsellor makes individualized educational program and maintains a cumulative case history record of the child. Regular meetings with parents inform them about the progress of the child.
b) Counselling for teachers
Workshops are organized for professional enrichment of faculty members as well as to sensitize them to various issues pertaining to students, such as identification of special children, behavioural concerns etc.
c) Counselling for parents
Counselling is provided to parents in order to inform them about the innovative educational programs and other issues related to their respective ward.
