HISTORY OF THE SCHOOL
It was in Lahore (now in Pakistan), in the year 1936, that there arose a need to impart education to the masses especially the girls & the weaker sections of the society. A social reformer, Dr.Bhagat Ram along with his wife Dr. Gyan Devi took the onus on themselves & put in their sweat & blood to establish ADARSH SCHOOL with the motto of “Simple Living & High Thinking”.
Due to the freedom struggle being at its peak, education took a back seat but the school was restarted in the National Capital under the dynamic administration of Mr. A.K. Sahgal. The school was recognized by the Directorate Of Education in 1985 & the school began its journey towards the shore of success under the able guidance of our Principal, Dr. Veena Sahgal. The school was upgraded to the secondary level & thus arose the need of a new school building. The hard work & sincerity of the school management helped in getting school land in 1992 in Kirti Nagar & now the school has the most modern building facilities which can lead us into the new millennium with wings spread to the maximum.
The school aims at providing holistic education to enhance cognitive & non-cognitive skills in the children. Spacious class rooms, fully equipped laboratories, modern I&T labs, well stocked library with open access system, seminar room, activity rooms for music, arts & craft etc are some features of the school.
The building is scientifically designed with spacious classrooms with the latest technology in teaching aids. Computer labs flaunt the latest Pentium, Internet and web site enabling the students to explore the wonders of the world. The labs are well equipped and spacious providing the students with an opportunity of learning by doing.
Wide choice of activities are woven in the matrix of the curriculum. Regular co-curricular activities both Inter & Intra school like dance, drama, quiz, declamation, debate, and recitation, on the spot essay/painting, etc. are organised to draw but the best in each child. Besides this, the students are also exposed to a wide spectrum of activities like Judo, Skating, Yoga, Aerobics along with the usual Table Tennis, Cricket, Basket Ball, Volley Ball, Hand Ball, Kho-Kho, etc. in the school’s sports arena which is ideal for all sports and games. The school is also a proud owner of an opulent Library with a wide range of books catering to the needs of every age group.
Community services programmes like Health and Consumer Awareness Melas, Education for All, Free Education to Weaker Sections of Society are blended perfectly in the school curriculum. Anti-crackers, Save Environment campaigns organised by Eco Club helped in curbing and bringing pollution level down on Diwali proved to be a right step in the right direction at the right time. Environment Protection through ‘No To Polybags’ campaign is gathering momentum gradually. N.C.C. for girls is attracting a large number of girls every year instilling in them a feeling of patriotism.
Workshops and Seminars are an integral part of the healthy package provided by the school. The credit for this goes to NIE and PACE in association with Times of India and Hindustan Times.
Morning assembly of the school is a reflection of our rich cultural heritage. Holi, Diwali, Id, Guru Purub and Christmas are celebrated with the same religious fervor and gaiety, thus, giving the students an insight into oneness and unity of numerous castes and creeds existing in our country.
