Laboratories are a seed ground where students get to explore, question, invent and deduce findings and learn in a collaborative way. Keeping in mind the famous Chinese proverb "I hear - I forget ; I see -- I remember ; I do -- I understand", the school boasts of separate lab facilities for Senior School and Middle School for all the Science subjects viz Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry, Biology and Computer Science. The Physics, Chemistry and Biology Lab have fully equipped teaching stations at the front of the room. They can see instructional demonstrations before they conduct experiments themselves. Each Lab has a spacious work area and at a time 40 students can be involved in experimentation. All the labs are equipped with computers. Trained Lab assistants help in the maintenance of Labs.

There is a Chemistry lab in our school. The labs is well-lit , well equipped and can accommodate 20-25 students. The children can conduct practical’s individually. The Class XII students also conduct investigatory projects apart from the usual testing and analysis. For the middle school there is a provision to demonstrate a lot of experiments.

Students compete in a variety of robotic challenges that include drones, mazes, obstacle ride, races, and soccer.

A library opens the portals to the infinite world of knowledge. A library is a collection of resources in a variety of formats that isorganized by information professionals or other experts who provide convenient physical, digital, bibliographic, or intellectual access and offer targeted services and programs with the mission of educating, informing, or entertaining a variety of audiences and the goal of stimulating individual learning and advancing society as a whole.

Western Music Rooms
Music education plays an important role in a child’s overall development intellectually, socially, and emotionally. Music offers creative challenges and aesthetic appreciation as well as self-expression and self-discovery opportunities.

To foster emotional and practical maturity, personal and intellectual development in students’, our school emphasizes on imparting appropriate music lessons in classical, folk and western genres. Practical maturity is gained by the students through music education where they learn time management, self-assessment, the ability to accept criticism and self-evaluate further. Music develops critical thinking skills and make the students excellent problem solvers. Music is also a form of art, and OPGM never falls short in finding and promoting individual’s talent of expressing his/her thoughts through the medium of art.

Music plays a vital role in fostering personality trails and helps students to enrich their intelligence which would lead them to their own path of success.

Art education is an integral part of child’s learning and living. The school nurtures artistic capabilities and creates cultural and aesthetic awareness amongst the students of the vast and varied cultural inheritance we have in our country.

A variety of folk and classical forms of puppetry, sculpture, visual arts, and crafts from every region of India comes live to the student in these activity rooms.

Learning of these arts enriches the lives of our young citizens in their school years as well as for their entire lives.

The arts, visual and performing, are an important component of learning in our school curriculum. Children develop skills and abilities in these areas. Art education allows children to develop both a playful as well as a disciplined exploration of themselves and diverse materials, and allows them to experiment with many forms of expression.

Working with hands, with materials and with techniques helps in understanding processes, becoming resourceful, taking initiative, and ultimately in problem solving.
