Wadiyar to open public school

Special Correspondent

School to start functioning from 2006

MYSORE: The scion of the Mysore royal family and former MP Srikantadutta Narasimharja Wadiyar on Saturday announced the launch of an elite public school in the city, which will commence functioning from the 2006-07 academic year.

He said 15 acres of land near Chamundi Vihar stadium, which was under litigation, has been reverted to him and will be converted in to a school. Leading educationists, including the former Vice-Chancellor of Karnataka State Open University Rame Gowda, are involved in the project. The school will either follow Central Board of Secondary Education or Indian Certificate of Secondary Examination patten, Mr. Wadiyar said.

The admission process will commence from March and teachers will be recruited from January and subjected to a three-month orientation course, he said. The standards will be on par with the best public schools and have state-of-the-art facilities, including a computer science laboratory. The intake will be restricted to maintain a healthy student to teacher ration and each class will not have more than 40 students.

Dasara celebrations

In the run up to the private Dasara celebrations, the assembling of the Golden Throne has been scheduled for September 19 and the traditional ceremonies will commence from October 4.

However, there has been some change in the calendar of events as the private Vijayadashmi celebrations of the royal family will be held on October 12, said Mr. Wadiyar.

The official website of the royal family - www.royalsplendourofmysore.com - will post images and photographs of the earlier era to capture the glory of the past. The private celebrations will be recorded and arrangements have been made for webcasting the same. The events will either be telecast live or the video records will be uploaded for public viewing.
