Ahlcon Public School puts a lot of stress on co-curricular activities. With its girls’ football team recently winning the CBSE football nationals, the school’s decision to invest in coaching academies for football and cricket — not to mention getting an international coach for football and setting up two playgrounds — has yielded fruit.
The school was established in September 1988 by the Shanti Devi Progressive Education Society and is spread over three acres, has 11 laboratories and six IT-enabled learning rooms, two multipurpose auditoriums and several clubs.
The school has a number of activity groups such as the eco club, the disaster club and the heritage club that enable the students to make the children understand and become aware about their environment.
“We also lay stress on education for the underprivileged and offer scholarships to the needy,” said Pramod Bhatnagar, the school’s manager. There is a parallel school that offers free education to children from the deprived section. The initiative, called the priority wing, brings the students on a par with the regular students and merges them with the mainstream classes.
Another interesting aspect about Ahlcon is the annual Silico Battles, an endeavour to guide students in making their mark as budding IT professionals. The event today is one of the most sought after in Delhi and NCR region, with more than 45 schools having participated the last time it was help.
Over the years, Ahlcon has become one of the most sought after schools in this region, ably competing with the more developed localities of the national capital such as south and central in every field.
