KENDRIYA VIDYALAYA VIJAYAPUR
Ladies and gentleman,
It is my bounden duty to present before you a brief happenings of the Vidyalaya since the 19th Annual day celebrated on 17th December 2017.
As I present the roundup of the previous year’s activities with humility I would like to say that we left no stone unturned to go beyond the set target in search of excellence. I am really proud of my teachers and students.
Let me begin by quoting the great Nelson Mandela “Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world”. Excellence in academics is the first priority of our school. The cent percent result in class X & class XII proves without any doubt that our students have done extremely well.
07 Students namely, Aditya R Chikmath , Chinmayee Kulkarni, K. V. Shriya Reddy, Shilpa N ,Sneha Mogali , Sampat Kumar M and Swarali Athalye scored the perfect score of 10 CGPA for their meritorious performance in the class X Board Examinations for the year 2016-17 and won a cash award of Rs:5000 from KVS. All the 83 students appeared in the class X board exam passed with good percentage.
In class XII all the 08 students passed with flying colours. Master Hamid was the topper with 77%.
Over all, out of 934 students studied during the year 2016-17,930 students were promoted to the next higher class. The overall pass percentage of the Vidyalaya is 99.57 %. 06 students scored 10 CGPA from classes VI to IX and won the proficiency prize.
I would like to appreciate the teachers who put in extra efforts for this exemplary result especially the teachers of board appearing classes. I would like to mention that Mrs. Prasanna Kumari PGT(Phy) was given excellence award for her quality result in class XII by KVS.
As per the request of parents Kannada was started as a hobby subject from class I to VIII by appointing a qualified Kannada teacher this academic year.
Even though 83 students passed out in class X with good percentage no one turned up for taking admission in class XI. This is a matter of great concern as the science stream running in the Vidyalaya for Higher Secondary Classes will be closed down if the trend continues this year too.
2.NATIONAL LEVEL ACHIEVEMENTS
Master Vinayak of class VIII was selected to attend the national level social science exhibition for on the spot painting completion and he will be touring Uttarakhand at the end of this month.
