"Educationists should build the capacities of the spirit of inquiry, creativity, entrepreneurial and moral leadership among students and become their role model."

-Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam

It gives me immense pleasure to pen down my first message as the Chairman for the eleventh edition of 'MANTHAN', the Annual School Magazine of Navy Children School, Karwar for the Academic Year 2021-22.

Our education system is a mirror that reflects our society. It is an agent of social change and should aim at drawing out the best in our children and make them conscious about their rights, duties and obligations as responsible citizens of our great nation.

Since the humble beginnings of NCS Karwar in the year 2011, it has expanded and developed significantly over the past few years. It is a matter of great satisfaction that in accordance with our vision, NCS Karwar will achieve a major milestone by commencing Senior Secondary classes in the forthcoming Academic year 2022-23. Towards this, the setting up of laboratories, expansion of library and induction of teachers is nearly complete. Commencement of Senior Secondary classes will fulfill the long pending educational aspirations of the naval community at Karwar.

Though academic excellence will always remain our primary focus, we will henceforth focus on sports and socially useful productive work too. Towards this, we intend to generate a quantum jump in the availability of sports facilities and also commence formal coaching in various sports disciplines in the coming months to provide an overall growth to our children.

As Chairman of the School, I am proud of the commitment of the teachers and staff towards the holistic development of young minds. I would like to assure the parents, children and the entire naval community of Karwar that NCS Karwar will witness major infrastructure upgrade in the forthcoming Academic year and the unstinted support of all stakeholders will be extended to the school in all dimensions to further enhance the quality of education.

I extend my best wishes to the HM, staff and students and am sanguine that you will all work diligently towards our quest for excellence in all fields. My compliments to Team NCS and the students for publishing yet another informative and interesting edition of 'MANTHAN'.

JAI HIND !
