Navy Children Schools
In order to promote education, science, culture, literature and fine arts amongst the children and families of serving and retired naval personnel, the Indian Navy established Navy Education Society under the Societies Registration Act XXI of 1860. Eight Navy Children Schools have been established in various Naval Stations under this Society so far. Kendriya Vidyalayas were originally established with an aim to cater to the educational needs of children of Defence and Para Military personnel. These schools provide common medium of instruction and syllabi. This facility was subsequently extended to all Central and State Government employees. Of the total number of 1090 KVs situated across the country, 31 KVs are presently functioning under the Naval Sector.
New Kendriya Vidyalayas
As the Indian Navy expands in its three dimensions with more number of ships, submarines and aircraft, additional infrastructures are being created at various places. Consequently, the demand for schooling facilities at these new stations has also gone up.
