Kendriya Vidyalaya Sangathan
The beginning of the new academic session is a time for
reviewing our achievements and setting goals for the future. The students and
teachers of the Kendriya Vidyalayas have achieved excellence in all fields and I
have no doubt that they are ready and well equipped to accept new challenges and
bring glory to their institution. To strive for perfection through hard work and
sincere efforts should be our constant endeavour.
It gives me immense pleasure to share with you the tremendous
success of our children at the class X and XII examinations. There has been a
significant improvement in the result of class XII-2012 examinations. The
overall increase in the number of students who have successfully cleared the
examinations is 0.73% more as compared to last year. Moreover, the number of
students securing above 90%, 75% and 60% marks is at an all time high. For this
I would especially like to congratulate the teachers of the Kendriya Vidyalayas
who have given unstinted support to the children of their schools by mentoring
them and grooming them to take their place in the world. KVS is striving to
ensure that our children become truly world class by providing libraries,
computing and other educational and recreational facilities thereby enriching
the learning experience of our vidyalayas.

Kendriya Vidyalaya Sangathan had set up a task force in 1994
to suggest a specific course of action for the strengthening of Primary
Education in the Kendriya Vidyalaya. This Committee made some recommendations
with an emphasis on joyful learning through an activity base approach.
Accordingly the K V S has adopted the activity based approach for teaching at
the Primary level, together with a system of grades for assessing the child’s
performance. The aim of assessment is to improve the child’s capability rather
enforcing retention in the same class.
To ensure a smooth transition from the home environment to
the Primary school, a 'School Readiness Programme' of 6 weeks duration has been
developed and adopted. At the end of the programme the teacher may assess if the
desired behavioral outcome has been achieved in the following areas .
Recognition of the environment
Strengthening Of Primary Education
In pursuance to the recommendations of the Yashpal Committee,
the School Readiness Programme for 6 to 8 weeks and the activity-based approach
for teaching and grading system for assessing the performance of children have
been adopted. The grading is for improving the competency and skill of the child
rather than detaining the child in the same class. A five-point scale has been
adopted for classes I to V. A handbook on School Readiness programme and
handbooks for PRTs for classes I to V have been published to provide the
required orientation for Principals and teachers.
A scheme of Pre-Primary classes on self-financing basis was
started in 50 Kendriya Vidyalayas in the year 2000-2001. However, all Kendriya
Vidyalayas having three or more sections in each class have noe been allowed to
introduce upto two sections of the pre-primary on self financing basis, provided
there is a demand from category 1st parents and infrastructure is available with
