21st Century skills

As a collective we believe in developing skills in students that are required to thrive in this world. In this journey we are trying to provide diverse opportunities to our learners so that they can explore themselves and choose their own destinations, instead of us telling where to go.

Sensitive Citizens

We want our learners to be sensitive citizens towards marginalized communities and the environment with a broad understanding of the social structure around them. By sensitive citizens we refer to those who operate with emotions and values of love, gratitude, acceptance, integrity and responsibility.

Constitutional Values

We believe the constitutional values can’t be directly injected into students. These are developed in schools which can result in students ensuring equality, respecting others’s liberty, valuing fraternity and voicing up for justice. These values are constitutional but can be traced in our day to day lives.

“This is truly staggering..... A small town in Uttarakhand called Nanakmatta, because of a single very spirited school, is currently far ahead in City Nature challenge in India, so far second in all of India, way beyond large cities with thousands of schools, (probably because biodiversity and nature conservation doesn't bring positions in competitive exams, leading to big pay packages!).....

I feel proud to be associated with this school, that is setting an example of what true education means in the current scenario, and that is truly futuristic..... I have heard a lot of people saying nobody knows what the future will bring in the age of AI..... Well we DO know with certainty about the future of biodiversity on earth. However, that doesn't seem to count in front of artificial intelligence and jobs...”

A school where securing place in merit list is not bigger than exploring new ways of education

यह एक ऐसे स्कूल की शालीन अभिव्यक्ति है जहाँ बोर्ड की परीक्षाओं में पूरे राज्य में प्रथम 25 में से 6 बच्चे इसी स्कूल के हैं। इस उपलब्धि को बड़े बैनरों में छपवाने की बजाय यह स्कूल इसे सिर्फ दो इनवर्टेड कौमा में रेखांकित करते हुए इस बात पर जोर दे रहा है कि जो बच्चे क्लास के बाहर की गतिविधियों में भी रुचि लेते रहे वे भी मेरिट लिस्ट में जगह पा सके यानी नानकमत्ता पब्लिक स्कूल के लिए 'बाहर की गतिविधियां' ही मेरिट लिस्ट है।

धारा के विपरीत चलने के नानकमत्ता पब्लिक स्कूल के जज़्बे को तहे दिल से सलाम है। सलाम उन जुनूनी लोगों को भी जिन्होंने एन पी एस में अपना कीमती समय दिया और यहाँ के बच्चों में मेरिट लिस्ट में आने की बजाय जीवन की ललक को जगाने का काम किया।  

बहुत बधाई और शुभकामनाएं सारी टीम और बच्चों को।

शुभकामनाएँ अनंत तक फैले नए प्रयोगों और उत्सुकताओं को जिनकी वजह से हम जीवन भर विद्यार्थी बने रहते हैं।

Nanakmatta Public School is situated in Nanakmatta. Nanakmatta is an important seat of Sikhism and is part of Udham Singh Nagar, Uttarakhand.
