Nearly 50, Kendriya Vidyalaya Sangathan feels it’s time for a face-lift. For starters, it has changed the look of its students. The solid blues and whites have been replaced by smart checks; pants have replaced salwars. The KVS unveiled the new uniform designs — changed for the first time since the school-system’s inception in 1963 . The National Institute of Fashion Technology (NIFT) developed the new style and the ministry of textiles was involved too.
Sale of forms for admissions started on Wednesday. While many private schools are grappling with the implementation of the Right to Free and Compulsory Education Act (RTE) for admissions to Class I, the schools under the Kendriya Vidyalaya Sangathan (KVS) are taking the lead in ensuring every clause is being adhered to.
Parents formed long queues at counters in the schools under the KVS as sale of forms for the admission began on Wednesday. This is the second year that the KV schools have framed certain guidelines based on the clauses of RTE Act for the admission process.
