Jubilee celebrations of Adimaly school

A Correspondent

KATTAPPANA: A school started by the E.M.S. Government as a Lower Primary School, converting an Asan Pallikudam, to provide basic education to the wards of settled farmers in the high ranges is all set to celebrate its golden jubilee on December 9 to 12.

The Rajakumari Government Vocational Higher Secondary School near Adimaly has now a concrete two-storied building in place of a thatched single room where the tiny tots learned their lessons.

It was after a lot of pleas by the settled farmers and local politicians that the government started the LP School in 1958.

It was elevated to a status of an Upper primary School in 1962 and in 1968 a High School was added to it. It has now 35 teachers and eight non-teaching staff.

The jubilee celebrations include public meeting, a mega show, alumni meeting, ganamela, farmers’ meeting and educational seminar. Minister for Co-operation G. Sudhakaran will inaugurate the public meeting and jubilee celebrations on December 9 after a colourful public rally. A reception committee led by principal V. K. Bhaskaran and PTA president M.V. Chellappan has been formed.
