Welcome To Bharatiya Vidya Bhavans Poochatty
Founded in 1938 by Dr. K.M. Munshi, Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan is today an All India intellectual, cultural and educational movement dedicated to the twin task of interpreting the age old yet ageless message of our country and of integrating our varied and vibrant culture with the changing needs of the present day world.
During the seven decades of its existence, the Bhavan has come to be recognised as a symbol of India’s glorious past and as a comprehensive national institution with an international outlook touching all aspects of life and enriching all spheres of activity.
Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan conducts classes from Kindergarten to Post Graduate research and imparts education in subjects ranging from Carnatic Music to Engineering, from Sanskrit to Business Management and from Yoga to Journalism. This is being accomplished through its centres spread all over the country and abroad, through cultural and educational programmes it conducts from time to time and above all through personal discussions and dialogue.
A BRIEF HISTORY
Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan Thrissur Kendra started the Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan’s Vidya Mandir in the year 1979 in a small rented room with only 12 students in Std I and two teachers as staff. The school then began to function at a rented building at Ponnuveetil Lane near Patturaikkal, Thrissur. On 1 June 1982 the kindergarten section was started. Since then there has been a steady progress in the school. In order to improve the standard of education the syllabus approved by the Central Board of Secondary Education was adopted.
In December 1983 the Bhavan purchased 5 acres of land at Poochatty 7 km east of Thrissur town. Today the school is set in an 8 acre plot against a lush green coconut grove. The foundation stone for the new building was laid by His Highness Sri Sannidhanam, Sri Bharathi Theeertha Swamigal and the site was blessed by Maha Sannidhanam Sri Sankaracharya Abhinava Vidya Theertha Swamigal. A team of Principals of Central Schools in Kochi inspected the Vidya Mandir on 19 August 1985 and on 7 October 1985 the Vidya Mandir was approved by the Central Board of Secondary Education. The Vidya Mandir was shifted to Poochatty on 10 December 1986. Its formal inauguration was done by the then Honourable President of India the Late Giani Zail Singh on 29 August 1986
