War Heroes Memorial School (WHMS) has been established to perpetuate the memories of those fallen heroes/martyrs who sacrificed their today, for our tomorrow. The nation is proud of them. It is incumbent on us to honour their sacrifice and look after their families.
The co-educational and day boarding school is run by Mugla-Duli Memorial Education Society.
WHMS is 15km from Karnal town centre and 4km North of Tehsil Town - Gharaunda. The school is situated barely three hundred yards East of GT Road, 110km from Delhi at Village Basdhara between the RPIIT Group of Institutions and Power House.
The school will start functioning from 01-04-2020 for classes LKG to 10+2
WHMS has a team of highly qualified, experienced, dedicated and committed staff for academic and co-curricular activities. The Principal is the head of the institution and the Vice Principal assists in academic and administrative fields.
With increased strain and stress on society, reintroduction of basic values has become imperative in order to remain physically fit, mentally alive and robust. The inculcation of true aggressive spirit in children has become mandatory owing to the menacing threat of extremism and militarism, which is fast enveloping our society.
Once the school is established up to 12th Class, the plan is to introduce aptitude tests through psychological batteries to judge the suitability of the student for a particular discipline. We then have exclusive sections from 11th Class onwards as NDA (National Defence Academy), medical, engineering and genius sections to help them prepare for competitive examinations on completion of 12th Class.
A trained medical assistant with basic medicines will be available at the school at all times to cater to the requirement of sudden sickness & injuries. Madhuban Dispensary and Arpana Hospital are 5 minutes away.
A yearly medical checkup will be carried out and a report sent to the child’s parents. A detailed medical report will be maintained for each student. Children requiring special treatment will be referred to the specialist. In the case of hospitalisation, the parents and local guardian of the child are informed. Expenditure on medication, medical tests, hospitalisation & all other treatment recommended by the doctor will be billed to the parents.
Art & Craft is a very keenly sought after subject today. Decorating any place artistically and colourfully is the cornerstone of this subject. We have one activity hall for the purpose & separate art/craft teacher.
Various clubs have been formed for different hobbies. The response of the children to these classes is amazing. Every child is required to choose at least one hobby club. The clubs meet once every fortnight with a proper agenda and activity calendar. Clubs at the school are: Yoga, Sports, Science, Environment, Reading, Art/Craft, Music, Calligraphy, Maths & Computers.
Buses will be made available based upon requirements. We currently have a fleet of 6 buses to ferry children. All the buses are positioned at the outer periphery to do the first trip. Most buses will have to do a second trip in the inner circle. The buses are fitted with CCTV, GPS and Governor.
Buses, once applied to a route, will not be stopped during the journey.
Note: No student will be permitted to bring a car, motorcycle, scooter or moped to the school.
All students are encouraged to participate in outdoor activities. Groups of 15-20 students are sent out to nearby hills escorted by staff members. This offers them an excellent opportunity to develop a spirit of adventure and an understanding of the importance of working together in a team with common purpose. Besides these expeditions, the school sends children on educational tours.
