In view of recent accidents by city buses and loss of lives, CMS has come up with a fresh initiative to ensure safety of school children during their way back and forth to school using school transport. The school organized a free eye check-up camp for 500 school drivers. Famous eye-specialist Dr Dheeraj Kevlani tested the eye-sight of the drivers and 100 drivers out of 500 were found in need of spectacles as their eye-sight was poor. These drivers were given free eye-glasses on 18 March at CMS, Kanpur Road by CMS Director of Strategy, Mr Roshan Gandhi. CMS Transport Head, Mr Talal Mujaddidi, conducted the proceedings at this event.

Every CMS Campus has a Career Counsellor to guide the students in their choice of a suitable career according to their interest and aptitude. It is because of the excellent rapport of these Career Counsellors with the students and the information and guidance provided by them that several CMS students are getting selected in top universities and professional colleges of India and the world. These students will go out into the world and after receiving the best quality of education, they will use their knowledge to serve humanity.
We hold interactive sessions and try and evaluate the aptitude, strength, underlying drive, abilities, interests and weaknesses to help them develop realistic goals. Experts and representatives from national as well as international universities are invited to update students about various processes, information and requirements about choosing and applying for admissions, financial aid, apprenticeships, etc. We try and ensure the best possible result.
