VIDYALAYA ANNUAL REPORT 2014

(30.04.2015)

"The mind is not a vessel to be filled, but a fire to be ignited." - Plutarch

The year 2014 was remarkably a memorable year for Kendriya Vidyalaya Balaghat as it gave us many reasons to cherish the glorious successes achieved by virtue of perseverance and commitment of the students and the teachers in all the fields of activities. But at the same time the horrid glimpses of the heart-rending and agonizing accident which snatched one of our lovely students in the ill-fated morning of 8th Nov. 2014 are too excruciating to be endured.

Most esteemed Sh. V. Kiran Gopal IAS, Collector & District Magistrate and Chairman Vidyalaya Management Committee, Kendriya Vidyalaya Balaghat, highly revered Shri Gaurav Tiwari IPS, Superintendent of Police, Balaghat, respected Shri Rajesh Bhattacharya, Mine Manager MOIL, Bharweli Mine Balaghat, worthy members of VMC, K V Balaghat, eminent officers of MOIL Bharweli mine Balaghat, respected officers of district administration and the staff, the cherished officers of 123 Battalion CRPF and Cobra Battalion with personnel, office bearers of the PTA, the media persons, special invitees, beloved parents and guests, it thrills me to welcome you on this fascinating occasion. 

This ideal and unparalleled vibes in the school campus this evening is the acknowledgment of your deep-rooted affection and altruistic alliance with the school. I take this exhilarating moment as a magnificent opportunity to read out the Annual Report of the school for the session 2014-15.

Our school, since its inception in 1993, has been growing every day. It has Science and Commerce streams with close to a thousand students enjoying education with around 50 dedicated staff plus those outsourced on contractual basis. The school provides all facilities and state of art teaching technologies in addition to e- class room, e-content and e-progress report.
