                          The Navy Children School, Coimbatore (NCS(C)) was set-up in the year 2016.  In the past four years, the standard of the school has improved by leaps and bounds.  The school which had commenced functioning with classes I to VIII, has been adding a standard every year.  For the Academic year 2021-22 & 2022-23 the competent authority has accorded approval to commence functioning of class IX & X  under the CBSE affiliation.  All requisite necessary preparations have begun in earnest for the same.

                    It was heartening to see the zeal and enthusiasm of the faculty in ensuring that no stone was left unturned in imparting quality online education to students of the school despite the nationwide lock down imposed view Covid -19.  The students of NCS continued to excel in all fields. Ms. Neha Sivakumar was awarded the national award in Ancient Martial Arts, Silambam.  A cash award of Rs. Two Lakhs was also given by the Chief Minister of Tamilnadu Thiru. Edapaddi Palaniswamy.

                         On 19 Nov 20, we were honoured to have Vice Admiral. Anil K Chawla, PVSM, AVSM, NM, VSM, ADC, FOC-in-C South amidst us. He and Mrs. Sapana Chawla, President NWWA (SR) visited the school and walked around the infrastructure.  Mrs. Chawla also inaugurated the multipurpose Audio Visual Room-cum-Computer Lab.

                     The proposal for new state of the art building for NCS(C) is being progressed with the MoD.  Once approved, construction work will commence in the area earmarked for the same.  This would go further towards further enhancement quality education being imparted to the young generation.

                              As the Chairman, my message to the school is to set your aim high and strive with total devotion and dedication in achieving the same.   Any educational institution worth its name should impart true education to its students and not merely make them literate.  The endeavour of the school should always be to inculcate correct values, ethics and an inquisitive mind in the child which should seek the truth and always strive towards excellence.  Wishing the school and its faculty all the best in all its endeavours.  Sham No Varuna.
