Welcome to the Website of G.M.S.S.S.- 23-A, Chandigarh.


The idea of involving students in the task of national service dates back to the times of Mahatma Gandhi who tired to impress upon his student audience that they should always keep before them their supreme responsibility. The first duty of the students should be to prepare themselves for final dedication to the service of the community on whose back they were resting and not to indulge in intellectual luxury. He advised them to form a living contact and exhorted them to do something positive so that the life of the village might be raised to higher material and moral levels.
