However, this year, the school not only got the maximum merit positions — 18 — and topped the state, the first three rank-holders in Punjab were also from R S Model School.
Talking to Newsline, principal M L Kalra said, “For 40 years, I have been heading the school. We produced class XII toppers and got merit ranks in class X also but this day was yet to come. Today after 40 long years, school has finally achieved the goal. Now, whenever I retire, it will be with inner peace and satisfaction.”
Nankana Sahib Model High School, Janta Nagar, got 11 merit ranks in the state.
