Good morning Ladies and Gentlemen,

On the 29th Annual day celebration of Kendriya Vidyalaya No.2 Salt Lake, I take this opportunity on behalf of the entire vidyalaya family to extend a hearty welcome to our honourable Chief Guest Sh. Dushyant  Nariala, Secretary School Education , Government of West Bengal & Chairman vidyalaya  management committee, the esteemed members of the vidyalaya management committee, distinguished guests and worthy parents who have encouraged the students to unfold their potentials and achieve excellence in holistic development .  

Swami Vivekananda was of the view that “ The holistic approach of education means the moral development of a child. The ethical values imbibe the sense of decency and responsibility among the children. The school must be regarded as an appropriate platform for all round development of a child”.

It is a matter of privilege to welcome you all  & to share the experiences and achievements  of this vidyalaya before this august gathering. By the grace of the Almighty, our Vidyalaya has reached the pinnacle in various  fields of  activities. The vidyalaya strives to achieve excellence in academics, sports and other co-scholastic fields.

It is a known fact that every  child is born creative. The entire responsibility of moulding the future citizens and leaders of the country lies on the shoulders of teachers who act as friends, philosophers and guides and help the students to bring out the potential and creativities in various dimensions of learning and to make the best of the opportunities that knock at their doors.

The Vidyalaya strives to instill in the young minds a thirst for knowledge, cherish the values of culture and tradition of a great nation. All languages, cultures and religions come under one umbrella in this institute encouraging a healthy mind in a healthy body.

We cherish to see the kids bloom and walk out to serve the nation to the best of their ability. The Vidyalaya shapes their dreams and makes them worthy citizens of the nation.I would now like to present glimpses of some of the achievements of the the vidyalaya.
