A Word from the Commissioner

Knowledge is universally recognized as the true strength of a nation and no doubt our Kendriya Vidyalayas  are doing an excellent job while pursuing excellence and setting the pace in the field of school education.  KVS is a unique organization which not only strives for excellence in imparting education to children but also in other areas.  KVS is a vibrant organization growing at a steady pace.

We have a significant number of teachers who can nurture & develop the personality traits of a child to not only make him a successful professional but also a good human being.  I personally feel that students learn more and behave better when they receive high level of understanding & caring.  However, we need to look at ways of improving our education system, enhance its performance and get better results.  In short I would say that educational system is to be oriented to come up to the expectations of every child, parent, teacher or Principal.  

I am happy to share the news with you that  Govt. of India has approved the setting up of 107 new Kendriya Vidyalayas during the remaining period of 11th Plan i.e.  2010-11 &  2011-12. This is a kind of recognition for KVS  for its splendid job in the field of education. We intend to open a large number of these vidyalayas in the current year itself. 

Coming to the results of KVS,  I would appreciate the rigorous efforts of teaching community who have kept their commitment to excellence. Result of KVs is significantly higher in both AISSCE and AISSE examinations in class XII & X respectively conducted by CBSE.  I personally feel that quality of education will determine the destiny of the nation. And for me, education does not mean….just providing the answers. Education empowers the students to discover themselves. CCE scheme has helped in improving  student’s performance by identifying his/her learning difficulties at regular time intervals right from the beginning of the academic session and employing suitable remedial measures for enhancing their learning performance.
Regular student and  teacher  interaction is helping us in grooming our students to achieve their potential in life.  

I am fortunate enough to have an experienced and committed team and I intend to build on this strong foundation.  Not only as an administrator but as a friend I assure you of my full commitment to the goals & objective of KVS and hope that all of us will work for its expansion and progress  by leaps and bounds.
