We, at Gita Niketan, strongly believe that 'A healthy mind lives in a healthy body' and the role of games and sports in building one's health is universally known. We have made it mandatory for our students to participate in physical drills and games. It is heartening to mention that our players have kept aloft the school flag in sports competitions at all levels.
A gift of India to the world, yoga has come to be realized globally as the most effective method of keeping physically fit, mentally balanced and spiritually and morally uplifted. Our everyday yoga sessions in the morning assembly help the children in multi faceted ways. We have got a spacious hall built for this specific purpose and have named it "Yog Sadan".
If games and yoga tone one's body and mind, music is a soothing stimulant for one's soul. Not only it is a carrier of our age old moral values but it also helps in developing one's emotional skills. Gita Niketan Awasiya Vidyalaya leaves no stone unturned in providing to its students the best of opportunities to learn music in both its forms viz. instrumentals and vocals.
For a child to grow into a responsible citizen possessed with competence, self-esteem and brimming with the zeal for social service, our saints and sages have identified certain distinct moral values of life which need to be communicated to the younger generation. A well-designed set of these values is termed as moral and spiritual education and Gita Niketan Awasiya Vidyalaya enjoys a nation wide reputation of being an institution whose atmosphere itself speaks volumes of these values.
The Indian ancient literature is abundant in all those rare works which still have a unique potential to nourish various modern disciplines of knowledge. It is required of every Indian student to be well-versed with Sanskrit to have a dip into that vast ocean of knowledge and thereby gain competence to be at the pinnacles of the international standards both with self esteem and piquancy. Keeping this fact in view, Sanskrit is taught at Gita Niketan Awasiya Vidyalaya as a compulsory subject to all students of 6th to 10th standard.
This project was started by Vidya Bharti to acquaint the students with their age-old cultural heritage and also to inculcate in them the Indian moral values. More than a million students throughout the nation appear every year in the Sanskriti Gian Pariksha (a G.K. Test based on Indian culture, religion and philosophy). Essay writing competitions and quiz contests are also held under this project. It is required of every student to obtain a minimum of 50% marks in the Sanskrit Gian Pariksha to get through.
Vidya Bharti started this project in the year 1997 with an aim to develop an inclination towards Indian Civil Services among the students of IX and X standards. Samkalp's central office based at Delhi guides the students from time to time. A group of about 25 students from our school attends a weeklong personality development camp held every year during the summer break.
With ever increasing career opportunities, the students find themselves in a fix and to take them to the other side of the tunnel, G.N.A.V. invites specialists in the field to guide and direct as per students aptitude and interest. For instance, Sh. Naveen Gulia, a social activist running an N.G.O. in Delhi with multiple disabilities also a Limca book of record holder, Rtd. Major Gen. .K.Saighal,Major Ankit Kohli and Smt. Sudha Gupta, an I.A.S. (ex-students of G.N.A.V), Sh. Gaurav Kumar, an IAS, S. Simardeep Singh, an I.P.S. have counselled the students.
To cater to the needs of students aspiring to excel in the board exam and crack various competitive exams,the school has an extensive programme for the students of classes XI & XII. Along with their school teachers, expert faculty prepare students for competitive exams and take classes through video conferencing two days a week. Weekly tests and regular assignments prepare students to face the challenges. They focus on strengthening the fundamentals of science subjects so that the students can achieve excellence at par.
Monthly newsletter Niketan Darshika is being published regularly since January 2005 to provide a platform to the teachers and students. This newsletter also acts as an effective medium between the school, parents & alumni.
The school boasts of having a unit of 100 male & female NCC cadets (Army Wing) and 50 male & female NCC cadets (Air Wing). These cadets attend regular training sessions besides attending various camps and parades held at different places of the country.
Time to time educational trips for students are organized. This not only broadens their mental horizon but also help children bond with nature and our rich heritage. For instance the following places have been visited in the last few academic sessions: President House, Parliament Museum, Wagha Border-Amritsar, Science Centre- Delhi, Science City - Kapurthala, Nainital, Jallianwala Bagh-Amritsar, Chhatishgarh, M.P., Rajasthan, and Gujrat etc.
