THE CHAIRMAN'S Desk
It gives me immense satisfaction that Khelgaon Public School with its constant endeavour to mould the young minds into becoming enlightened citizens of the country has in its brief but glorious years, emerged as one of the premier educational institutions of Allahabad. Trying to grasp the best of both academics and sports have ended up creating a beautiful synergy between the two in my own life. I became a national champion and obtained a doctoral degree in biochemical engineering simultaneously. This along with the knowledge of our holy scriptures, inspired me to create a system of education for our children that would be a meaningful blend of the mental and physical energies through academics and sports. This system was put into practice in 1992 and yielded a rewarding outcome for the sportspersons whom I had taken up for my Olympic project. Khelgaon Public School is a true replica of this system aiming to impart a holistic value-based education in the true sense of the word not only by maintaining strikingly high academic standards but also by developing all faculties - intellectual, physical and spiritual. Developing an enterprising mind, intellectual curiosity, more integrity, a strong sense of values, a disciplined life-style and feeling of comradeship among students that will transcend social, communal, religious and provincial prejudices are the real objectives of the Khelgaon system of education. We know that the formal education available in the existing institutions is confined to classrooms only and offer job-oriented knowledge but do not develop the higher state of consciousness or help one to realize one’s full potential in life. In addition to a job-oriented education, everyone should also have life oriented education. The importance of quality education, thus becomes obvious.
A strong emphasis is laid on games and physical fitness, co curricular activities, expedition, outdoor activities, etc. to relate education to real life experiences and take education beyond the confines of the classrooms making it a rich, stimulating and creative experience. This is, perhaps, the only school of the country that assigns two periods for sports and one for music in a student’s daily curriculum.
This prospectus seeks to give information about the distinguishing features of the school. While efforts have been made to include essentials within, there may be points which need elaboration. In such cases readers are requested to contact the principal to obtain the desired clarifications. Corrections and valuable suggestions will be gratefully welcomed by the management. With the blessings of God, let us redefine education to realize our dreams.
