Kendriya Vidyalaya to open on October 1

Special Correspondent

Admissions for classes one to five will begin soon



Temporary setup: The government building at Ragigudda in Shimoga is being readied to house the Kendriya Vidyalaya.

SHIMOGA: The long-felt need for a Kendriya Vidyalaya in Shimoga has been fulfilled, with the school functioning from October 1.

Admissions will soon begin for classes one to five. Provision has been made to admit 10 students in each class. Registration for admission will be made from September 13 to 18.

Application forms are available at the office of the Deputy Director of Public Instruction.

The school will be temporarily housed at the old building at Ragigudda now lying idle after the Ambedkar Mission vacated its hostel.

It may be recalled that the demand for the Kendriya Vidyalaya was being voiced for the last two years with no positive signs of it being fulfilled.

The proposal for it took definite shape when Shimoga MP, B.Y. Raghavendra, took up the matter with Union Minister of State for Human Resource Development D. Purandeswari during her recent visit to the district. She reportedly promised that it could be sanctioned if the land required for the school was provided.

Mr. Raghavendra explored the possibilities with the district administration for locating the school immediately so that it could start functioning from this academic year (2010-11).

It was agreed to locate the school temporarily at the old building at Ragigudda after the district administration earmarked land at Sogane, near here, for the construction of its permanent building.

Mr. Raghavendra thanked Union Human Resource Development Minister Kapil Sibal, Ms. Purandeswari, Chief Minister B.S. Yeddyurappa and the district administration for making the dream of setting up a Kendriya Vidyalaya in Shimoga a reality.
