Air Force Bal Bharati School

Air Force Bal Bharati School (AFBBS) established 1955, is a senior secondary school situated on Lodi Road, New Delhi, India, and run by the Indian Air Force Educational and Cultural Society. It is affiliated to the Central Board of Secondary Education.[1][2][3][4]

History

The school was the brainchild of Air Marshal M.S. Chaturvedi who encountered significant issues while trying to get his children admitted to a school in New Delhi when he was posted there with the Air Force. The school was started by the Indian Air Force Educational and Cultural Society, which also runs The Air Force School (Suboroto Park) and Air Force Golden Jubilee Institute, with the aim of educating children of Air Force personnel posted to the National Capital Region. AFBBS made a its beginning, as a primary school, on 15 July 1955 with 116 students and six members of staff. The school was housed in war time barracks.

By 1974 it had grown into a full-fledged senior secondary school offering education to over 3300 students. Today, AFBBS functions under the aegis of Indian Air Force Educational and Cultural Society as a recognized, unaided private school. The school is affiliated to the Central Board of Secondary Education, New Delhi, and offers educational facilities under 10+2 scheme of education.

In October 2005, the school celebrated its golden jubilee with a week long festival "Swarnajyoti", with inter-school competitions. In 2007 AFBBS achieved ISO 9001-2000 certification.
