Smt. C. T. Naik Higher Secondary School A Birds’ Eye View

Jan Utkarsh Shikshan Saunstha, Curchorem was established in 1979 by the visionary Late Shri. Pundalik Tukoba Naik supported by other prominent persons of Naik Bhandari Samaj, basically to extend higher educational facilities to neglected and deprived students of the community.

It is not the cement and the mortar that makes an institution, but it is certainly the students and the teachers that give meaning and shape to the educational institution. Impelled by an innate desire to give practical shape to the higher educational needs of the youth of this locality Shri. Subhash Pundalik Naik, son of celebrated philanthropist and beloved founder of Jan Utkarsh Shikshan Saunstha (which runs our Hr. Sec. School) founded Smt. Chandrabhaga Tukoba Naik Hr. Sec. School on 1 Aug. 1987

Smt. Chandrabhaga T. Naik Higher Secondary School, since its inception, has been active and effective in providing the higher educational facilities to the poor, downtrodden and the weaker sections of the society of Sanguem and Quepem talukas and has made an indelible impression on the minds of the public, parents and the students as well.

Smt. Chandrabhaga T. Naik Higher Secondary School has fruitfully & successfully completed 25 years of its existence and the silver jubilee was celebrated ceremoniously in the year 2011-12 with the participation of present & past students, staff, Department of education, Members of the management & the general public.

Education is the process of human empowerment, human enlightenment, human transformation and it is a lifelong process. Therefore, continuous, consistent, concrete & concerted efforts are sincerely being made in our school by all of us to mould an average child into a committed and responsible citizen of tomorrow. Etiquettes, discipline, character are the guiding principles of our school. Efforts are being made to imbibe these qualities in students as our country is badly in need of people of integrity.

CTN Hr. Sec., another name for discipline, which was started with 107 students in XI Arts & XI Commerce two and half decades back today has accommodated more than 700 students in Arts, Science, and Commerce & Vocational Streams. Consistently & continuously our school is exhibiting academic excellence coupled with outstanding performance in co-curricular activities. For several years our school has been first in Curchorem centre in Arts, Science, Commerce & Vocational streams at Goa Board examination. As a result today our higher secondary school has established a milestone in the educational map of Goa.

It is pertinent to make a mention here that our school clinched the first rank in commerce stream in the entire state of Goa during March 2011 exam with ten students scoring highest marks in different subjects at state level.

By rendering yeoman service to the community our school is the “first choice” for the students & the parents of this locality. It is housed in two buildings with adequate and well ventilated class rooms. Our school is characterized by well experienced teaching staff, co-operative non teaching staff, supporting office staff and lovely students.

We have a big collection of books practically on all subjects in our library. We have “free book bank” and provide books to the needy and deserving students. We also visit all the schools in Sanguem and Quepem Talukas and provide Career Guidance to the students every year.

Another specialty of our school is that we visit the parents of std. XI at their residence and try to impress upon the parents to inculcate good manners in their children and also give the students few tips for academic excellence and request the parents to support them. This has not only helped us to maintain a very good rapport with the parents but also has helped to understand the difficulties faced by the students so also helped to reduce discipline related problems. Our teachers also adopt few students the moment they enter the school in Std.XI and take care of those students in all respects.

Our NSS unit has left an indelible impression on the villagers whenever the residential camp is conducted since its introduction in 1988. Besides in association with Red Ribbon Club- Aids Awareness Rally, Adolescent talk for Boys & Girls separately is conducted. Regularly programme on Health & Hygiene in collaboration with Nestle India Ltd is conducted. Our school has been very much active in Swachha Bharat Abhiyan and a special team is formed to look after cleanliness on regular basis.

Our Parent Teacher Association has been very much active and effective and has been participating in all the activities of the school. Over and above the management has been quite understanding and supporting the endeavors of the school in all possible ways. With the support of PTA & the management few projects like – Extension of toilet facilities to the girls in the old building, installation of drinking water purifier, CCTV cameras, canteen facility, office renovation etc. are taken up.

We are proud to mention that our school organized a Mega Job Fair, first of its kind, in collaboration with National Institute of Personnel Management, Goa Chapter in the month of April 2015 in order to facilitate employment opportunities for unemployed youths in Goa in general & South Goa in particular. Though 975 candidates attended the Fair, around 200 unemployed youths were benefitted as per the information available.
