Golden Jubilee Celebrations

C F T R I School is celebrating its Golden Jubilee.

The CFTRI School, which was started in a small room attached to the C F T R I residential quarters, is today one of the reputed schools in the city. Started in 1964, the school has walked through 50 successful years and is celebrating its Golden Jubilee from June 2014.

Founded in 1964, the school started in a small way with only nursery classes and I standard. Subsequently, classes uptp VI standard were started. By this time the school was shifted to the Assistant Director's quarter. In 1969, the school started functioning in the former palace stables, converted to Men's hostel. Since then, the school has been growing by leaps and bounds. To meet the demands of th egrowing number of students, more number of classes had to be started. By 1974, all the classes started functioning in the new building.

In 1970, CFTRI Education Society was formed. The management of the school which was hitherto in the hands of the founder member was taken over by the CFTRI Education Society. The constitutional frame work of CFTRI Educational Society was drawn up by an interested and involved group of Scientists like Dr. H.A.B. Parpia, Mr N.P. Dani, Mr K.M. Dastur and Mr m.M Krishnaiah, Dr K.R Bhattacharya, Mr Veeraraju and Mr Subramanyan. Also a friend and well wisher from the Department of education, Dr Ram Kulkarni contributed a lot to the thought process as well as help and facilities that could be taken from the Education Department. This interaction was initiated by Mrs Caroline Parpia, the founder of the school.

The growth of the school was rapid. There was steady increase in the enrolement of the students. The first batch of X standard students appeared for the SSLC examination in the year 1979. The school has now grown into a composite institute offering complete instructional facilities from nursery to X standards comprising about 1220 students. The school has unique distinction in securing 98 to 100 percent results in X standard public exams all these years.

CFTRI School is a school with a difference: It is set up with high ambitions and noble objectives. These were to provide education for intellectuality, morality and spirituality. The school aim to impart quality education based on science and technology and the values of our traditional Indian culture. The school follows the theme "Sarvashikshana Abhiyana" - 'Education for all' and the school logo reflects its theme "KNOWLEDGE IS POWER".

Now, it is time to celebrate, to introspect, to consolidate and to plan for its future. Hence in the year long Golden Jubilee celebrations of C F T R I School – a dream destination for students and staff , we intend to enthusiastically involve ourselves in achieving our aim.

The Golden Jubilee celebrations was formally launched on 1st November 2014 in connection with Kannada Rajyotsava marking the beginning of the celebration. As we celebrate we also hope to conceive and start new initiatives to take CFTRI School to its next highest level in the coming decades. All are invited to join in this effort.

An elaborate program of activities has been drawn for the year. There are several inter and intra school activities to make it memorable.

We request all our ex-students to join hands with us to take your alma-mater to reach its zenith. We also invite you to contribute to achieve its greatness. Let us contribute to the institution's glory by excelling in what we do ourselves, as alumni, students and staff.

Looking back over the years, one cannot help but admire the remarkable alround growth achieved by the school ever since its inception in 1964. The school owes to the parents of the students - past and present - as well as CSIR-CFTRI for its present infrastructural facilities. The dedicated band of pioneers who started the school during sixtees and selfless service of a host of office bearers of te CFTRI Education Society from seventees till now deserve our gratitude and thanks for bringing the school to its pre-eminent postion in the Mysore city.

Golden Jubilee is a great landmark in the history of an institution to look forward with courage and cofidence to scale new heights. The school has chalked out an abitious plan to expnad its infrastrucural facilitiesqualitatively and quantitatively by setting up Golden Jubilee Open Air Auditorium, Modern Science Lab, Modern Mid-day Meal Facility, Upgradation of Sports Ground, Language & E-Learning Lab, Robotic Lab & Video Conferencing Facility, Reconstruction of Nursery Block & Play Area, Green Campus Initiative, Bio-gas facility for Mid-day meal , Bio-composting and Vermi composting facility, Solar Lighting and Electricity Facility. Any contributions made will be greatly appreciated as it will go a long way in improving the infrastructure to provide facilities, attracting the best faculty who would enhance the talents of the students.
