Nirmala Open School (NOS), Rajkot

As the motto of Nirmala Convent School is "Love in Service", the school has reached out to the needy and underprivileged of the society and kindled a ray of hope and light in their lives.

From 2004 onwards, the school has been running an afternoon shift for the development and education of the poor children who belong to the slums of Rajkot City. The aim was to provide opportunities to such children for their physical, psychological, spiritual and social development so that they can become part of the main stream of society and be valuable asset to the country. This year more than 500 students are on roll from LKG to Standard 10.

The eligible students are trained and guided to write their exams from NIOS (National Institute of Open Schooling) or any board equivalent like, state board, CBSE , CISCE etc . Nirmala Open School also provides guidance and counselling to the students who are willing to appear for their secondary and senior secondary examinations through NIOS.

Academic and co-curricular activities have made these children develop confidence and imbibe good values in life.

We believe in the adage that "Education is the lever that sets in motion our future." These children have brought a change in their lives and in others too. We hope to motivate them to prove themselves to be a true son or a daughter of our proud mother land.
