The students and teachers of Kuttambur High School, the only aided school that secured 100 per cent success from the Balussery educational sub-district in the recent SSLC examination, were accorded a civic reception on the school premises at Kuttambur in Kozhikode on Sunday.
All the 175 students from the school, who had appeared for the SSLC examination, succeeded with 19 of them securing an A+ in all the subjects. “This was achieved without deliberately denying promotion to any students in the lower classes,” said P.K. Prasanna, headmistress of the school, who spoke on the occasion.
The village school, where majority of the students come from economically backward families, were also taking part in the State-level art and sports events for the last several years.
Inaugurating the event, M.K. Raghavan MP hailed the rare fete of the school and lauded the entire team of teachers, parents, and the local people.
Students, who had secured high scores in the examination, were awarded cash prizes and a memento on the occasion. All the students, who passed in the SSLC examination from the school, were also given a memento.
A.K. Saseendran MLA presided over the function. V.M. Ummer MLA, school headmistress P.K. Prasanna, and teachers, among others spoke.
