Amruthur Education Institution

As We Stand Today

Amruthur Education Trust has made provision for the children of rural areas to pursue their studies from kindergarten all the way up to 10th standard in Kannada medium since 1982. In 2008, pre-university college courses in Arts and Commerce were established to extend the education of its students. In 2014, English medium higher primary (6th to 8th standard) and high schools (9th & 10th standard) were added to provide students with English medium education. In 2017, English medium primary school (1st to 5th standard) was also added, enabling full English medium education.

More than 700 students from Amruthur and 25 surrounding villages are studying in this institution. Of the 700 students, nearly half the students are girls.

Around twenty dedicated and trained teachers are working in the institution run by the trust. Due to the efforts of these teachers, the facilities provided, and active participation of the students, a good percentage of the students pass out of the institution with the government-recognized Secondary School Leaving Certificate (SSLC) every year.

Students in the schoool stadium

A unique feature of these schools is: all the children are provided with free uniforms at the time of admission. Also, school textbooks, notebooks, writing materials and school bags are distributed to the students free of cost.

The kindergarten school uniforms are navy-blue shorts & skirts, with blue & white checks shirts. Kannada-medium uniforms are navy-blue pants/shorts for the boys and navy blue skirts for the girls, with white shirts. English-medium students wear dark-brown pants(boys) and skirts(girls), tan shirts, accompanied by a brown-striped tie. College boys wear grey-black pants & white shirts, college girls wear a white kameez & grey-black salwar with a matching dupatta. All school students wear badges wearing the trust emblem, and black shoes with white-striped navy-blue socks.

Hygienic, nourishing midday meals are provided to all the students on all school days. The trust has made arrangements to award scholarships to poor and merited students every year. Since 2006, in accordance with the policy of the Government of Karnataka, students studying in 8th standard Kannada medium are given bicycles free of cost. In addition to this, as of 2016, the trust is also giving bicycles free of cost to students studying in 8th standard English medium.

The above programs have played a significant role in encouraging the rural people to send their children to schools, instead of involving them in agricultural and related activities.

Special care has been taken to promote physical education and discipline amongst the students. Two qualified physical education teachers have been employed for this purpose. As a matter of policy, from the beginning of the academic year, physical education is promoted in a systematic way. Towards the end of the academic year, an annual School Day is held. As part of this annual sports competition, physical education demonstrations are exhibited in a public function, track and field competitions are held, and prizes are distributed by specially invited dignitaries.

Order and discipline are taught to students daily

Every year, students of the institution participate in the sports meets conducted at the taluk, district, and state levels and win trophies for the school. It is a matter of pride to mention that, in 2005, the primary school kabaddi team went up to the national level kabaddi finals where they played against the Delhi Public School team in Chhattisgarh.
