What began with a mere 36 children, a single teacher and with bare minimum infrastructure, has grown to include more than 1,500 students, an extremely dedicated staff and state-of-the-art infrastructure.

A huge playground and chirpy children welcome you as you enter the school. The introduction of a sports programme in accordance with the UK sports academy just goes to show the focus on sports — Salwan Public’s USP.

“The country needs to focus more on sports. Today, children are into tuition, television and other such things…they need to get on the ground,” said principal Kiran Mehta. To make the children aware of the growing problems of the environment, the school has a special magazine on sustainability and environment.

Vibrant cultural exchange programme is the hallmark of Salwan Public School that also sends its teachers and students on foreign trips. The school has an ISO 9001:2000 certification, has educational partnerships with eminent global institutions such as the British Council, Cambridge University, UK and Reggio Emilia Institute, Italy, which provide students a unique global platform.

Students are constantly encouraged to try their hand at activities as diverse aero modelling and documentary filmmaking.

The school has smart classrooms that include projectors and audio-visuals modules. Teachers too undergo continuous training and attend regular workshops to hone their skills. Salwan regularly organises leadership camps, which offer activities such as close quarter combat, tent pitching and night trekking at high altitudes.
