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.
We have been running a Hostel for the last 40 years. It is a matter of pride that ranked among the best residential schools in the city, the New Public School attracts boarders from all over India and overseas as well.
We see it as our responsibility to bring out our boarders’ talents, to broaden their interests and to develop their personal qualities: to instill confidence, perseverance, tolerance and integrity; to enhance communication skills, to embrace creativity, to encourage teamwork, and to promote an open minded and outward looking thinking so that students are ready to make a positive contribution to their wider community.
For excellence in all spheres of life varied activities have been incorporated in the routine so that children are kept busy and every hour of the day is accounted for. A child learns etiquettes, punctuality, deportment, how to organize himself and become self-sufficient. Then there are co-curricular activities like Dance, Art, Sports and Hobby, remedial classes and coaching. Boarders are taught how to live together in a cordial environment with others from different walks of life and religion. We care about the individual and pride ourselves in the warmth of a community in which all our boarders feel valued.
If a child feels homesick, there is a warm foster family feeling in the boarding, there is guidance and counseling for the adolescent, and opportunities for participating in more activities than the school curriculum can accommodate from 8:00 am to 2:00 pm. For that reason, the school has excellent infrastructure and facilities. We provide specialized coaching, Table Tennis, Chess, Tae-Kwando, Badminton, Football, Basketball, Volleyball, Skating and Bicycling. Of course, examination results matter and our pupils consistently achieve excellent results, giving them access to top universities in the country and overseas. Every year our students get selected in NDA, IITs, NIT and reputed Medical and Engineering colleges. For this there is specialized coaching through reputed teachers.
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
