Today on the proud occasion of golden jubilee celebrations of KVS and annual prize distribution function of KV Yol Cantt, I take this privileged to speak a few words to glorify my KV and KVS. KV Yol was established in the year of 1975. After enjoying infancy for more than ten years, it was up-graded to be a full fledged Senior Secondary School with science and arts stream and in the very next year in 1987 commerce was also added. Initially the Vidyalaya was housed in barracks. But later on it had its own spacious premises. Now it has big infrastructure with fully equipped science labs, modern computer labs for Primary, Secondary and Senior Secondary sections. All the labs are high-tech with full speed internet. All the departments are inter connected by intercoms. We have a maths lab, junior science lab and a big library with more than 12,000 books. The academic record of KV Yol Cantt is worth writing in golden words. Its 10th class result is 100% continuously for the last ten years. 12th class result is also always more than 95%. Our old students are working on high posts in the different sectors and making us proud. One of our gems Mrs. Vani Pathania is a doctor ((Major) in army, Mr. Kamaljeet Singh is a famous surgeon and Dr. Pushkar is doing his post graduation from a foreign university. A number of ex-students of KV Yol Cantt are giving their valuable services in Banking, Armed Forces, Industries and Private sectors. KVS itself prefers to recruit its own students as its officers. Many ex-students of this vidyalaya are working as PRTs, TGTs, PGTs in different KVs and repeating the history of quality education. KV Yol is one of the best and biggest school of KVS in Himachal Pradesh. it is imparting high quality education to its students. We take care of all round development of our students. For this, here we have NCC, Scouts & Guides and adventure club. In NCC students qualify for “A” Certificate. In Scouts & Guides they aspire for Rajya Puraskar. Recently our six students are selected for Rajya Puraskar. And in adventure club they go for mountaineering to hills of Manali and Shimla and learn to survive in difficult conditions. As far as sports are concerned students of KV Yol Cantt play till National level.. They play all games such as, Football, Basket Ball, Volley Ball, Dodge Ball, Hand Ball, kho-kho, Table Tennis and the brain game chess. Athletics & Cross Country race is also organized here. We have one Gym with complete facilities of body building and stamina making equipments. The school has spacious play ground and practicing area for students. A few years back we have established a small M. I. Room also. A trained nurse takes care of ailing children and provides them immediate medical help. Recently the school has introduced “German Language” under the programme of learn “Foreign Language”. A qualified teacher is appointed and students are learning it with great zeal. Previously Yol had Div formation of army, and since our KV falls under it we had all support and co-operation from them. But now it is upgraded to Corps H.Q. We are getting and hope to keep on getting the same encouragement & support from H.Q 9 Corps too. I specially thank our worthy, dynamic and energetic chairman of VMC ( Major General R.N. Nair, AVSM – SM ) for his guidance, guardianship and co-operation for the smooth and continuous development of the Vidyalaya. Thank you. Thanks once again.
