Sainik Schools were conceptualized way back in 1961 by the then Defence Minister Shri VK Krishna Menon with a purpose to bring public school education within the purview of common man and in the same line Sainik School Kunjpura which witnessed its inception on July 24, 1961 has come a long way and stood a testimony to providing quality education and developing life-skills among its cadets.
It was the fruitful result of able mentorship that the grand institution could produce over 1800 officers in the Armed Forces, eminent politicians, public servants in different walks of life. It is a matter of pride that in Nov. 2014, Sainik School Kunjpura bagged the coveted Raksha Mantri Trophy for 8th time, after a gap of 14 years, for sending maximum number of Cadets to NDA amongst all Sainik Schools.
I visualise the school at its pinnacle of glory in the coming years where the cadets groomed in a rich academic, cultural and professional environment, would not only prove their invaluable merit in meeting the challenges of life head-on in future but also emerge as responsible citizens and true leaders of this modern yet ancient nation and they be ever-ready to accomplish the motto of Sainik School Kunjpura i.e. “Ready to Accomplish” in all walks of life.
JAI HIND !
