Education - V. Ramakrishna Higher Secondary School
V.Ramakrishna School was founded by V. Ramakrishna I.C.S., Founder of The KCP Group in June 1967 at Tiruvottiyur. His vision was to provide education to bright children of lower income groups through this equal opportunity school. The institution was started as a Primary School with Telugu as the medium of instruction, with the motto "Thamasoma Jothirgamaya". (Lead us from the Darkness of Ignorance Unto the Light of Knowledge) With continued efforts from the Management and staff, the school up-graded to Middle School in September 1982 and High School in June 1991. The English Medium section was also started around this time. In June 2002 the school started offering Higher Secondary education. The main advantage of this school is that a child can learn three languages (Telugu, Tamil and Hindi) and can opt for Telugu or English medium education at the same campus.
We provide an encouraging atmosphere for students and function with these objectives:
- To increase student skills to their highest potential in pursuit of academic and artistic excellence;
- To provide a caring school community where students can study and grow;
- To develop high standards in personal behaviour and interpersonal relationships,
- To prepare students for life beyond school, for higher education, Career, adulthood and society.
Currently, our school has 33 qualified teaching staff and five non-teaching staff for a student body of 720.children. Four committees enhance the learning environment of students. Examination Committee: Deals with the administration of exams, especially X and XII Standard students. Cultural Committee: Takes care of intra and inter school competitions. Extra Curricular Activities Committee: Encourages skills and talent of students outside of academics. Discipline Committee: Takes care of student conduct. Students are encouraged to pursue sports, learn yoga, become Scout and Guide members and provided training to prepare for competitive exams. Terminal and monthly examinations are conducted as scheduled during the academic year and Parent Teacher Meetings are conducted soon after the examinations. The school conducts exhibitions, competitions and medical camps every year and plans to conduct an Arts and Crafts Camp every year on November 14, Children's Day. The school actively takes part in community development. We provide training to people in the school neighbourhood on income generating activities.
The school plans to launch an 'Open School' under the National Open School Concept for school dropouts and others unable to receive regular education. The school plans to start a full-fledged computer training lab with Internet Access.
