Malleeswara Vidyanikethan School

Swami Vivekananda – “Education is the manifestation of the perfection already in man"

Education is the basis for development of any community. Unless true education is provided, no society will be able to develop and stand on its own, not to speak of contributing to the overall welfare of the nation and the world. It is with this vision that Swami Vivekananda Medical Mission entered into the education sector, to fulfil a vital need of the backward people of Attappady. Though there were many government and other schools in the area, students were not offered good “man making“ education as Swamiji called it. The system was not inspiring the students to aspire for higher educational and social goals. Malleeswara Vidyanikethan School was established in 1992 by a government servant to provide children of the area a good primary education. Later when he was not able to continue supporting the school with his meagre income, he handed over the school to NavothanaParishath,which is a trust based in Palakkad in 1996. As the school was growing in terms of number of students and the classes, it needed a local administration to develop it further. Hence Swami Vivekananda Medical Mission trust agreed to take over the administration of the school in 2011.

The school has classes up to 8th standard. The classes are in English medium. The syllabus is based on NCERTand the school is affiliated to NIOS(National Institute of Open Schooling). There are teachers with  goodacademic background for each subject. Free education is given to tribal and other poor students. The school has 285 students out of which 111 students are given free education. The free education of these children is supported by many kind hearted noble individuals and some organizations like Uthishta, Bangalore and Udayakeralam, Sharjah. Apart from basic education students are regularly taught yoga, music and dance.

Students are involved in numerous curricular and extra-curricular activities. There is good infrastructure as classrooms, furniture, playground, activity  area, computer lab and other facilities.
