Introduction

The Modern Nabha Public Sr. Sec. School, Nabha is the premier Educational Institution in the town. It is brain-child of Mr. S.S. Bedi who worked as a Senior Teacher in Punjab Public School, Nabha and was mainly instrumental in setting and running Nabha Public School for 10 years and Mrs. Satinder Kaur Bedi who nurtured with care the primary section of Nabha Public School

The school was established by both of them which grew out of need of the parents, who may or may not be affluent, but who want to give their children the best education. This institution is an English-medium, which will aim at giving its pupils, a command over English which will be sufficient and lasting. Lot of stress is laid on spoken English by involving the students in declamations, debates, story-telling and class-room-conversation. Emphasis in the primary section is laid specially on phonetics. The Pupils learn to make the direct connection between English word or phrase and the object, action or idea it bears.

Our primary obligation is to guide the children in pursuit of knowledge and skills and help them to become happy, useful and self-supporting citizens.
