To connect fun with studies and to enhance the hidden talents of students, Kendriya Vidyalaya Sangathan (KVS) has launched the Anandvaar Scheme. In this scheme, all schools of the KVS will celebrate Saturdays (except 2nd Saturday of the month) as a fun day or Anandvaar. On Anandvaar (fun day), the students will be kept away from the studies. Plus, they will get the chance to do co-curricular activities and showcase their talents.
