Bal Bharati Public School (BBPS) is a group of institutions educating people at school level in India. Padma Vibhushan Lala Hansraj Gupta, an Indian philanthropist, founded the parent body (the Child Education Society) which governs all the member schools across India. Bal Bharati Public School ranks among the premier institutes in Delhi and the country.

History[edit]

Padma Vibhushan Lala Hansraj Gupta established the first Bal Bharati in 1944 near the Central Ridge in New Delhi. The school spreads over six acres and is now housed in two wings - Pusa Road and Sir Ganga Ram Hospital Marg. Other Bal Bharati Schools have since been set up across India.

[edit]

"Let noble thoughts come to us from all sides" is derived from "Aa No Bhadra Kratvi Yantu Vishwatah". The school motto "Hanso Nayatu Naha Pragyam" is depicted in the image of a child astride a soaring swan. The motto means, "Ey swan, give us education", and make us move constantly to newer heights of learning and excellence, generally because the swan is a symbol of enlightenment in Hindu beliefs.
