Before conclusion , I have an immense pleasure to inform you that it is a matter of great honour and pride that Our Kendriya has completed a glorious journey of 50 years and I am fortunate to continue this legacy for the next generations. It is the most fortunate moment for me that I am heading one of those 20 regimental vidyalayas with whom this premiere organization – KVS came into existence.
KENDRIYA VIDYALAYA SANGATHAN - a premier organization in India administering1093 schools as on 01.04.2013 known as ''Kendriya Vidyalayas'' with 11,29,481 students as on 01.10.2012 and 56,445 employees on rolls as on 01.10.2012. Since inception in 1965, the Kendriya Vidyalayas (Central Schools) have come to be known as centres of excellence in the field of secondary and senior secondary education promoting national integration and a sense of ''Indianness'' among the children while ensuring their total personality development and academic excellence.
Finally I would like to conclude the report with the valuable words of the great scientist Albert Einstein- which are very much significant, especially for those parents who are worried about their ward’s career.
Albert Einstein says-
“Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.” So let’s go ahead with a firm belief that every child is bright and I assure that we won’t leave any stone unturned to polish these diamonds.
