Report by Nishapati Nayak, Sunabeda: The golden jubilee celebration of Vyomayana Samstha Vidyalaya under Aeronautics Education Society (AES) of HAL engine division concluded at vsv open air pendal in koraput district on January 5th 2018 with fanfare and gaiety.
Setup in 1968, this co-educational School was formerly called the DAV English Medium School with a curriculum that was modeled on the Dayanand Anglo Vedic system. In the late seventies, as the school gained in strength and size, there was a need to define its direction and affiliation; and carve an identity that could reflect the core foundations for its existence and growth. Since it was incubated under the aegis of Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL Koraput Division) through the Aeronautics Education Society (AES), the connection with aerospace could only be amplified. Hence a new name- Vyomayana Samstha Vidyalaya – simply translated, an institution that is administered by the organization of the aerospace.
