The senior choir currently comprising of 54 members is yet another flourishing activity of the school. Its main goal is to build the musical abilities of students. Girls from grade 9 upwards are given the opportunity to sing in the senior choir and practices are generally held every Thursday after school from 1.45 to 4.30 pm unless there may be an upcoming event in which case there will be additional practices during the course of the week. The practice is started off by the girls vocalizing in order to warm up their voices. Thereafter they engage themselves in the art of singing by learning new songs and practicing previously learnt ones, focusing on the dynamics, tone and colour of the piece.
The choir has been currently ranked as 18th in the world under the Youth Category their latest achievement being the platinum award won at the Xinghai International Choir Competition held in China in the year 2012.
The Junior Choir sings at the Carol Service every year.
The teachers in charge are Mrs. T.Ratnarajah who trains the choir, Miss.D.Edward who accompanies and Mrs.P.Rebeira.
