NCC

Army Wing of NCC is available in SVM Kamala Nagar, Agra. We promote students to join NCC because -

The National Cadet Corps (NCC) is the Indian military cadet corps wing of the Indian armed forces. It’s headquartered at New Delhi, India and open to school and college students on a voluntary basis. National Cadet Corps is a Tri-Services Organization, comprising the Army, Navy, and Air Force, and engaged in grooming the youth of the country into disciplined and patriotic citizens. It recruits cadets from high schools, colleges, and universities all over India. The cadets are given basic military training in small arms and parades. The officers and cadets have no liability for active military service once they complete their course but are given preference over normal candidates during the selection process.


The four cardinal principles NCC works on:

The main objective of starting NCC training in schools is to give the youth an opportunity to experience the military life. It’s crucial to train them early in school and make them strong physically, healthy and well-prepared for any war-like situation. Thus, NCC is an excellent option to choose from in school, given its obvious advantages.


Firstly, if your dream is to join the army, there is nothing better you can do in school than to join NCC. Secondly, even if you do not want to opt for the armed forces, NCC prepares you physically and mentally. It makes you learn many things, which otherwise you won’t get a chance to in life. Discipline, basic arms training, team ethics, following orders, various kinds of physical activities, sports, tours to remote areas, etc. are some of the things you experience and learn in NCC. These lessons are invaluable and make the journey of learning beautiful. You get familiar with varied leadership traits, develop communication skills and build courage and confidence. Other than all this, NCC makes one a better citizen. You get to interact with people from different states and break free from the linguistic barrier. The team also has youth exchange programs in different countries.


NCC offers a variety of campuses like the CACT (Combine Annual Training Camp), BLC (Basic Leadership Camp), ALC (Advanced Leadership Camp), Paragliding, trekking, hiking, YEP (Youth Exchange Program), which gives an opportunity to visit foreign countries on government expenditure; TSC (Thal Sainik Camp) for firing, RDC (Republic Day Camp), which lets the candidates meet the prime minster, president, and chief of armed force; NIC (National Integration Camp), and IDC (Independence Day Camp).

"What can be learned on the ground cannot be learned in the classroom"


Our mission is to enhance the lives of students in need through sports at SVM Kamala Nagar, Agra.


At SVM Kamala Nagar, Agra., we lay a strong emphasis on sports and physical development. Our sports curriculum is planned and designed for students to develop and enhance skills like strength, speed, endurance, agility, flexibility, control, balance etc. Sports today has also evolved as a form of entertainment and also offers promising careers.


We believe in mass participation, exposing our students to a number of sports events at inter-school, state, national and international level. Every student is encouraged to join at least one school sports team. The physical education teachers we employ are young and energetic with a good amount of expertise in sports and provide coaching for sports like volleyball, basketball, kho-kho, kabaddi etc.


We have weekly achievable goals for the different skills required for a particular sport and train students accordingly. Intersection matches are conducted every year.


For students to know the benefits of the sports they play, they are informed about the body parts and muscle development in playing each sport along with game knowledge.


Participating in school athletic activities provides a means for students to more meaningfully engage with their education, increase academic performance and attendance and provide life skills taught through sports-based youth development. Without healthy experiences outside the classroom, many young people are at risk of obesity, depression, substance abuse, crime or gang activities, truancy, and dropping out of school.


CULTURAL

The importance of cultural activities is preparing students for real life and strengthening their personal skills. Cultural activities not only help students to identify themselves with the school & society, but also assist students to develop themselves in a desired field and also improve skills such as organizational, presentation, leadership and interpersonal communication. As cultural activities are of paramount importance, the SVM Kamala Nagar, Agra encourages all extra-curricular activities that are both in line with the educational objectives of the institution and meet the needs of the students. Culture can be defined as the arts as well as the intangible shared beliefs, values, and practices of a community. Students participate in arts and culture at varying levels of skill and engagement. Some create, while others listen to, watch, teach, critique, or learn a cultural activity, art form, or expression.

In this school, we would expect to see students walking down the halls together, collecting supplies from their lockers, and talking and joking with friends. Most of school students learn acceptable social behavior by watching and copying the people around them. They understand how to introduce themselves to someone they don't know, how to invite friends over, when to end a conversation, and how to be a friend.


Music

Nearly everyone enjoys music, whether by listening to it, singing, or playing an instrument. So we understand that music is not only an enjoyable subject, but a subject that can enrich students’ lives and education. So we provide musical environment in SVM Kamala Nagar, Agra for overall development of our students because --


  1. Musical training helps develop language and reasoning: Students who have early musical training will develop the areas of the brain related to language and reasoning. The left side of the brain is better developed with music, and songs can help imprint information on young minds.
  2. A mastery of memorization: Even when performing with sheet music, student musicians are constantly using their memory to perform. The skill of memorization can serve students well in education and beyond.
  3. Students learn to improve their work: Learning music promotes craftsmanship, and students learn to want to create good work instead of mediocre work. This desire can be applied to all subjects of study.
  4. Increased coordination: Students who practice with musical instruments can improve their hand-eye coordination. Just like playing sports, children can develop motor skills when playing music.
  5. A sense of achievement: Learning to play pieces of music on a new instrument can be a challenging, but achievable goal. Students who master even the smallest goal in music will be able to feel proud of their achievement.
  6. Kids stay engaged in school: An enjoyable subject like music can keep kids interested and engaged in school. Student musicians are likely to stay in school to achieve in other subjects.
