The New Public School is a dream nurtured into reality by relentless efforts of a noble lady the Shanta H. Singh. She has built a great temple of education and learning with her passion, enthusiasm and hard work. This could not have been possible without the support of many generous and the ever-helping people of the City Beautiful.
The history of the New Public School spanning over five decades is a glorious and exalted chapter. The Institution emerged on the school map of Chandigarh in 1960, in a rented building with barely 30 students on its rolls. It did not take it long for the school to carve a niche in the city, which itself was struggling to grow and was devoid of adequate educational facilities at that time. The Founder Principal, the late S.H. Singh, had been endeavoring to construct a school building which should command dignity, inspire a creative power and suggest qualitative richness ever since the inception of the School. At last her efforts bore fruit and the Chandigarh Administration allotted a five acre plot in the year 1970. The foundation stone of the school building was laid by Shri. B.P. Bagchi, I.C.S., the then Chief Commissioner, Chandigarh, in the year 1971.
The objective of the school is to groom the personalities of the young to help them grow taller amongst the community of students by sheer strength of knowledge and character, acquired through Aspiration, Inspiration and Perspiration which is also the motto of the school.
