Srividyasram Matriculation School, a school with a difference, was started in the year 2002 with the aim of serving the children of socially and economically deprived. It is located on the banks of the river Cauvery in a serene village Vadakurangaduthurai, 21 kms southwest of Kumbakonam town in the southern state of Tamilnadu, India.
It was a long cherished dream of Sri.V Swaminathan, a man from a humble background who rose to great heights and made it big in life from this village. He wanted to give something back to his village which brought him up with great virtues and culture.
At that time, this village remained an island, isolated, without progress, though the other villages around it had made significant progress for few decades. The absence of school was felt immensely as there were many without education or others who were dropouts. This was construed to be the reason for under development of this agrarian village.
Armed with his IA & AS qualification, Sri.Swaminathan served the country in numerous cities in his capacity to various Government departments. After retirement from his active work he decided to pursue his lifelong ambition to give back to the society. His village was identified for that, the place which helped shape and groom him as a child and a revolution began.
Sri Ramani Ranganayaki Trust was formed with Sri.Sesshadri and Sri.Swaminathan as the founders. The other members and donors of Sri Poorna Mahameru Trust based out of Chennai extended their full support to the school construction. In an effort to help the first generation learners, the school was started with 47 students in the Nursery level.
Today the school celebrates its 16th year of its Vidya Danam with around 700 students attending from more than 21 villages around it. They have successfully helped 5 batches of students clear their Matriculation with a 100% pass record. Most of these students today are leaving a blazing trail of their own, following the footsteps of the Founder- Sri Swaminathan and retaining the virtues cultivated in the school.
One more aspect of the school that was very dear to his heart, and a long cherished dream, was to create a structure and perfect ambience for the tiny tots getting into their first year of schooling – The Pre-KG. This “Nandavanam” shall be the grooming place for the kids to open their wings beautifully for their next several years of academic excellence in the school.
