Ladies and gentlemen,

It is my proud privilege to present the Annual Report of KV 1 Devlali for the year
2011-2012 before you.

Well, the Kendriya Vidyalayas can be aptly defined in the words of Adam Cooper and
Bill Collage, when they said:

“You don’t need fancy high-brow traditions or money to really learn. You just need
people with the desire to better themselves.”

Since its inception in the year 1965, the school has made tremendous progress in all
spheres, be it academics, sports or co-curricular activities.

       Anatole France says,” The whole art of teaching is only the art of awakening the
natural curiosity of young minds for the purpose of satisfying it afterwards.” We at KV KV 1
Devlali strictly adhere to this dictum and try our level best to translate it into the day to
day activities in the school.

       Academically speaking the year 2010-11 had been an exceedingly satisfying
one. The performance of the students of class X in the board examination conducted
by CBSE was outstanding. Abhishek Nandurkar of class X made us all proud by
securing a perfect 10 CGPA impressive CGPA. The brilliant performance of class
XII was repeated by class X students. The overall pass percentage of class X stood at
1 with Kusum Panwar bagging the 1st position by securing 90%. In the home
examination also we have improved upon our own previous result with a brilliant
96.29% in this academic year.


Co-curricular activities are an integral part of KVS System which provides an
excellent platform for students to showcase their latent talent. Keeping with the
tradition of KVS, the school has been divided into four houses viz; Shivaji, Tagore
Ashoka and Raman. Various inter-house competitions are conducted regularly
which help in the all round development of the personality of the children.
Students also actively participate in the celebration of important days and festivals.
Hindi pakhwada was celebrated from 14th to 30th September with a large number of
purposeful activities. It was organized with the intention of encouraging children to
honour Hindi by bestowing it with the place of pride it deserves. This year we
have started a new club called Integrity Club with the intention of inculcating
moral values in the children. Slogan writing, Debate, Story writing, Recitation
Calligraphy, eco-friendly Ganesh making competition are few to name.

This year the we organized English Literary Week for the first time in the history of
the Vidyalaya. Students and teachers enthusiastically organized various
programmes and competitions. Many programmes like story telling competition
recitation group song panel discussion and a skit on Influence of Regionalism in
English Literary parade of Shakespearean Characters etc. were organized. The
students participated with a lot of zest and zeal in all the programmes.


KVS organizes exhibitions in Science & Social Science at different levels from school
level to national level to familiarize the students with the latest developments in
science and technology and the world around them. In the cluster level competition

represented the Mumbai Region at the Nationals.


Physical fitness has captured the imagination of both young and old. KVS also has left
no stone unturned in its efforts to make its students learn the Art of healthy and
productive life. CBSE as a part of its ongoing educational reforms has made Physical
Education cards compulsory for its students. The card will reflect the physical and
mental well being of the students. Keeping pace with these developments our school
also gives much importance to sports and games. Our children regularly participate in
the various cluster level, regional level and national level meets organized by KVS. 230
students participateds in the Cluster Level Competitions out of which 17 represented
the Nationals. Mst. Birendar and Miss Preeti received bronze medals each at the

talk was followed by a fruitful interactive session. During AIDS Awareness
week a street play was enacted by the students of Std.X.


Scout and guide movement is another platform meant for the personality
development of the students.


It has been aptly said that it takes a village to raise a child.

The coordination and support of parents are the capital we bank upon in times of need.
KV Devlali is particularly lucky in this regard. I must thank all the parents for their
whole hearted support in achieving the goals we envisage for ourselves in the domain
of education. Regular PTA meetings held in the school after each test & exam are a key
element in improving the performance of the students, academically and otherwise. The
school also has a separate guidance cell to apprise the students with the various career
options available to them after school.


“I tried to teach my child with books, he gave me only puzzled looks.

I tried to teach my child with words, they passed him by, often unheard.

Despairingly, I turned aside,” how shall I teach this child” I cried.

Into my hand he put the key,” come”, he said,” play with me”.

These four lines more or less summarises what a child expects from us, both parents
and teachers. Keeping this spirit in mind KVS has been striving hard to overhaul
primary education to make it more student friendly. In order to ensure stress free
education to our tiny tots we have initiated many projects under CMP in the primary
section. Two teacher norm for classes I and II, block periods for activities, worksheets
etc are a few among them. In order to facilitate activity based teaching, we have set up a
well equipped activity room containing computers, TV, VCR, digital duplicator
machine, digital copier etc. Apart from these in order develop soft skills, grandparents
day was celebrated in the school Campus. It was really a pleasure to see the enthusiasm
of the grandparents and children on that day.

 Finally a big thank you to God almighty for His incessant which helped us to sail
smoothly this year. My heartfelt thanks are also due to KVS officials for their guidance
& support and all the parents and well wishers of the school for their co-operation.

Let us then be up and doing,

With a heart for any fate:

Still achieving, still pursing

Learn to labour and to wait.
