Copyright all rights reserved-Bal Bharati Public School,PitamPura Designed and Developed by-Bal Bharati Public School,Pitampura BBPS  ORIGIN The establishment of the Child Education Society in 1944 was done with the purpose of preserving our rich  culture and heritage and to pass on our legacy to the future generations. Considering that education plays a  vital role in building a sane society, it was immensely crucial to foray into this field for the betterment of the  nation and humanity at large.   The late Lala Hansraj Gupta, a philanthropist and former Mayor of Delhi, the late Shri L.N. Birla, Shri K.K. Birla  and Shri Charat Ram were instrumental in the founding of the Society. Their immense knowledge, experience  and valuable guidance proved to be a sound grounding for the establishment.   Today, the onus of steering forth this institution lies in the able hands of Shri K.K. Khullar, the President of the  Society, and a Board of Management consisting of distinguished academicians and humanitarians. Their  dedication and passion have been the force behind the expansion of the organisation from just one in 1984  to as many as fourteen schools and institutes today, with eight more to come up in the near future.  SRI LALA HANSRAJ GUPTA   (Founder President, Child Education Society) For ‘Lalaji’, as Lala Hansraj Gupta was fondly referred to, education and culture were closely associated. He  had great faith in Indian culture and firmly believed that it was the foundation of education. It was with this  belief that he wished to start a school where children would be exposed to Indian culture. This is how the  seed of Bal Bharati School was sown.   Lalaji did not dream of a big school but only wanted a simple school that ran on an idealistic base whose  students respected religion and culture; who revered their motherland, and who respected their parents and  teachers. In Lalaji’s view, character building was the paramount objective of a good school. He believed that  if the students benefited from the technological advancements of society, it was in the fitness of things that  they utilised them for the service of the nation. This balance was possible only if one’s character was strong.  SRI K.B. SRIVASTAVA ‘Dadaji’, as Sri Kunj Behari Srivastava was fondly known, was associated with CES from 11th December 1956,  when he joined as Director. Dadaji believed strongly that the medium of instruction should be in the mother  tongue of a child until he attained the age of ten. Only then, should other languages be taught. In Dadaji’s  view, the role of a teacher was merely that of a facilitator who quietly and gently made it easier for the child  to learn on his own. It was his dream that the school should be a place where learning was acquired, not  imposed upon. This was possible only if teachers were dedicated and hard-working and did not distinguish  between home and school. In fact, home and school were synonymous. Dadaji was an authority on  Montessori education. The Montessori Teachers’ Training he established is today recognised as one of the  best in India.  SMT. SUSHILA RASTOGI Smt. Sushila Rastogi was a scholar of Hindi and was the Chairman of the Managing Committee of the main  school. She was a devoted social worker whose entire life was dedicated for the betterment of the society  especially in the field of children’s upliftment. She took a keen interest in the different activities of the school.     SRI K.K.KHULLAR (President, Child Education Society) Mr. K.K. Khullar’s association with the CES and the Bal Bharati Schools from the inception is that of the body  with the soul. His position as a leading labour consultant provided impetus to the growth of the schools then.  As President of the Child Education Society for the past several years, he has been a perennial source of  inspiration and dynamic leadership. His keen intellect and administrative acumen have made the Bal Bharati  chain of schools one of the best in the country today.  FOUNDERS PHILOSOPHY AND VISION OF  THE SOCIETY To promote, impart, disseminate and encourage the study of and education in the field of literature, science  and technology, commerce, culture and the fine arts, as well as to inculcate high moral values.  To provide quality education at comparatively low cost and help create a society that believes in caring and  sharing.

In the year 1962 it forayed into the field of Teacher Education and that led to the setting up of a Nursery Teachers  Training Institute. In 1984, Bal Bharati Public School, Pitampura, was set up to cater to the needs of the residents of North  Delhi and in subsequent months, schools by the same name were started in Brij Vihar and Ghaziabad.   In 1989, Bal Bharati Public School, Rohini, came into existence and in the very next year in 1991, the  Society set up Bal  Bharati Public School, Nishatpura, Bhopal to provide value education to the children of the railway employees.   The years 1992 and 1997 saw the birth of two more schools in Noida and Dwarka respectively. Over the years, the schools  have grown both in strength and stature. With the desire to spread further, the Child Education Society set up a school in  Navi Mumbai and Bhopal.   In the year 2000 and 2001, the society, in collaboraton wih The National Thermal Power Corporation (NTPC) set up a school  each in Simhadri, Visakhapatnam and Tanda, U.P.   The year 2002 saw the setting up of Bal Bharati Public School, NTPC Township, Jhanor, Bharuch. It was established basically  to cater to the educational needs of the children of the employees of the Jhanor-Gandhar Gas Power Project, the first gas  power project in India managed by the NTPC. At the request of the NTPC, two more schools have been established in their  power plants at Ratnagiri and Sipat.   The Child Education Society continues to strive tirelessly in its endeavour to serve the society. It is currently in the process of  establishing its units at Ludhiana, Manesar, Solan, Bhopal and Gwalior.  Under the administrative acumen of Sri K.K. Khullar, the establishment has developed a unique educational philosophy that  aims at the holistic development of children by providing variety of experiences to nurture their hidden potential and  talents. Its belief in imparting value education by merging the traditional and the modern principles has enabled it to  withstand many turbulent times.  The philosophy of the society is embodied  in a Sanskrit quotation, ‘Hanso Nayatu Na Pragyamah’, the English translation of  which may be, to acquire wisdom and ability to comprehend. Its symbol shows a child mounted on a flying swan urging all of  us to surge ahead like a swan, towards the path of progress. The schools set up by the society constantly endeavour to  develop the quality of inquisitiveness amongst its students, to help them form their own perspective, to see beyond the  obvious and to make them humane and receptive to others’ ideas. To this end, the schools have devised their curriculum  around the following objectives:    Working towards the holistic development of the personality.    Preparing humanitarian citizens committed to social change.    Inculcation of all necessary skills to cope up with the challenging times.    Developing understanding of the world policies and cultures through various exchange programmes that  will help prepare global inhabitants.                                                                           Instilled with zest and spirit to achieve and excel, the Bal Bharati Schools have come far ahead of their times by imparting  world class education. The increasing number of its branches within and outside Delhi, stands witness to its popularity and  excellence. At present, the Bal Bharati chain includes 9 core schools and 6 project schools.  CLICK HERE FOR THE NEXT PAGE
