The kendriya Vidyalayas are run by the KENDRIYA VIDYALAYA SANGATHAN,an autono- mous body formed by the Ministry of Education,(H.R.D.)Govt. of India,New Delhi. As a result of the recomendationsof the Second Pay Commission. They primarily cater to the educational needs of the children of Central Govt. employees including Defence Personel and floating population liable to frequent transfers troughout the country. Needless to say, therefore they have common syllabus and are affiliated to the Central Board of Secondary Education, New Delhi. Every school is, hence, is a miniature India in itself and tries to inculcate in its students the feeling of patriotism, fraternity and national integration. Place chosen for establishing Kendriya Vidyalayas are those having concentration of Defence Personel and other transferable Central Govt. Employeesfor admission, the Vidyalayas give priority to the children of the above mentioned employees, but other floating population desirous of having such common pattern of of education are also eligible for the admission to the remaining seats. The instruction is imparted through the media of Hindi and English in these Vidyalayas, the ultimate object being to enable pupils to achieve a reasonable measure of proficiency in both the languages. The Vidyalayas are being developed as Quality Vidyalayas with some of the useful feature of popular residential Vidyalayas, without making the schooling very expensive. The quality of teaching is kept reasonably high by an appropriate teacher-pupil ratio and provision of teachers with high qualifications. The Kendriya Vidyalayas aim at having not only a common syllabus but also a well prepared syllabus and good textbooks based on that syllabus. They are intended to be equipped with good libraries, laboratories and computer labs separately for juniors and seniors and variety of other useful co-curricular activities The Vidyalayas provide for the studies of Humanities and Sciences and most of them multi-purpose in character providing for diversified courses in Comerce, Home Sciences and Technology. Kendriya Vidyalaya, (Hindi for Central School) is a system of Central government schools for children of employees of India's central government. The system came into being in 1965. Initially called Central School it was mainly to cater to the Defence services and the then remote places that they had postings to. With time and the Army starting its own Army Public Schools the service was extended ( but not restricted to) to all central government employees. The uniform curriculum followed all over India is intended to ensure that wards of government employees do not face educational difficulties when their parent and family are transferred from one place to another. It is also referred to as K.V or Central School. The name change was a part of the drive to make it more Indian, the drive also lead to a lot of the syllabus becoming more Sanskrit and pure Hindi based, with options for students to take Social studies in Hindi or English. The Sanskrit prayers and higher level of Hindu curriculum was a part of the same drive. Including making all names ( such as the Syndicate becoming Sangathan) more sankritised. A few Indian embassies abroad have a school of this type for the children of the embassy officials and expatriate Indian population (if a parent is a government employee). There are 929 Kendriya Vidyalayas at present including 3 abroad; one each at Kathmandu, Moscow and Tehran. The 929 Kendriya Vidyalayas have been divided amongst 21 regions each headed by an Assistant Commissioner. Overall there is a body KV Sangathan that governs the school and its norms. In such schools, no discrimination is made between the child of a top government official and that of a lowly-placed government employee. It is held that this school system facilitates national integration at the grassroots level. Student achievements are excellent when compared to other government schools. Alumni of these schools can be found all over the world. The schools are affiliated with the Central Board of Secondary Education in Delhi. prayer of kendriya vidyalaya-:Asatomaa sad gamaya (From Untruth to Truth lead us!) Tamasomaa jyotirgamaya (From Darkness to Light lead us!) Mrityormaa amritam gamaya (From Death to Deathlessness lead us! ) Daya kar daan vidya ka hame parmatma dena Daya karnaa hamari atma mein shuddhata dena Hamare dhyaan mein aao, Prabhu! aakhon mein bas jaao Andhere dil mein aa karke, param jyoti jaga dena Baha do prem ki ganga, dilon mein prem ka sagar Hame aapas mein mil-jul kar, prabhu rehna sikha dena Hamara dharm ho seva, hamara karm ho seva Sada eeman ho seva, va sevak jan bana dena Vatan ke vaaste jeena, vatan ke vaaste marna Vatan par jaan phida karna, prabhu humko sikha dena Om SahanaVavatu Sahnau-r-bhunaktu Sahviryam karavavaheh Tejasvina-m-vadhitamastu Maa vidvishavahe Om shantih!!! shantih!!! shantih!! School Pledge:---- "India is my country and all Indians are my brothers and sisters. I love my country and I am proud of its rich and varied heritage. I shall always strive to be worthy of it. I shall give respect to my parents, teachers and elders and treat everyone with courtesy. To my country and my people, I pledge my devotion. In their wellbeing and prosperity alone, lies my happiness. Jai Hind". Applause Due to the very varied backgrounds from which KV students hail, the culture here is also very colourful. The proven superiority of CBSE syllabus not only makes students on an average analytical and competitive, the down to earth culture breeds qualities of simplicity and flexibility. KV students usually don't just adapt well with higher economic circles, they are good in mixing comfortably with people of lower economic classes. That gives them a strong advantage in involving in careers of social responsibility. Hindi, the National language, is taught well in KVs. That binds the KV students with a majority of Hindi speaking portion of Indian population. English is given due importance. KVs also plays an important role in spreading the awareness about Hindi in southern parts of the country. KV students are usually more masterful of Hindi, but they are quite comfortable with English. There is tremendous emphasis on patriotism and social awareness. While KV students grow in a language-, region-, religion-, and culture-neutral environment, they stand the highest chances of growing into worthy Indians, aware of its rich culture, adept in the national language making them one with the populace, and with scholastic powers to serve their nation to a prosperous future. The leaving batch of 12th of kendriya vidyalaya kanjikode are considered to be the elites among all the other batch ,owing to their exceptional talents towards non-academic activities. Criticisms:---- Their is a huge discrepancy among the K.V's in terms of academic focus and results. Wheas in the south K.V's are good educational institutions, in the north K.V's are usually not very good with academic results.
