Aim of the Schools
The primary aim of this institution is to prepare boys academically, physically and mentally for entry into the National Defence Academy (NDA), Khadakvasla, Pune and Air Force and Naval Academies. The school also aims to bring Public School Education within the reach of common man and economically weaker sections of society.
One of the main objectives is also to prepare those cadets who fail to join NDA, for coveted careers elsewhere. Besides preparing the boys for entry into NDA, the school prepares them for Secondary and Senior Secondary Examination of the Central Board of Secondary Education.
Our School Motto is “VIDYA DADATI VINAYAM” Knowledge is said to be the best wealth on this earth. Knowledge expands only when the same is distributed. As a consequence of Knowledge one becomes humble and makes the world wonderful. Knowledge teaches the qualities of discipline. The first quality of discipline is humility.
To effectively implement the training programme and to achieve the aforesaid aims and objectives, there is a set and well-oiled pattern of administration.
The Principal, the Headmaster and the Registrar are Officers from the active service of the Armed Forces on deputation to the Sainik Schools Society. The Senior Master who assists the Headmaster in efficient discharge of his duties is usually the senior most member of the academic staff. The students of classes VII to XII are administered through the House system.
Each House is looked after a by House Master, Tutors and Hostel Superintendent who look after the maintenance of dormitories/hostels and cadets management. The students also actively participate in the School Administration. The School Captain and Vice Captain are selected from the senior most class.
There are the House Captains and the Prefects who look after their respective houses not only inside the dormitories but also in the play fields and elsewhere to ensure proper discipline. This system also brings to the fore qualities of leadership in young students and they learn at very young age to shoulder responsibilities and take command of situations.
Modern teaching methods and a variety of both conventional and electronic training aids, like Over Head Projectors, Audio Video Player, VCD players, LCD Projectors, etc are used to make teaching more interesting and effective.
