NIRMALA BHAVAN English Medium High school started in 1964, and later upgraded to Higher Secondary School in the year 2002. The school has grown in a remarkable manner since then. The history of the school is demonstrative of having achieved excellence in both academic and co-curricular areas.

Tracing the soul of Kerala’s cultural heritage

Saraswathi Vidyalaya’s heritage club programmes are designed so as to involve students in various activities that develop their interest in the rich cultural legacy left behind by our ancestors. The club organised a trip to Museum of History and Heritage in Trivandrum. It offered a glimpse into the land where artistic tradition can be traced back to the Megalithic Period characterised by paintings and engravings made on rock walls. The Trip enhanced knowledge on the history and cultural of Kerala among the students. It was an enriching and exciting experience for both students and teachers.

Inter-School English Debate Competition @ Saraswathi Vidyalaya, Trivandrum

“The principal value of debate lies in the development of logical thought processes, and the ability to articulate your positions publicly” – Senator Dick Clark of Iowa

Participating in debates are very beneficial for students, so schools should promote debating clubs and contests. Students get a chance to hone their public speaking and researching skills. Reading about current affairs and general issues are essential for debaters, so these habits are also cultivated in children. Learning the art of persuasion and developing self confidence are other advantages of taking part in debates.

Saraswathi Vidyalaya School, Trivandrum is holding the Inter-School English Debate Competition, Thinkers and Talkers, on 23-08-2013 at 9 am in the School Auditorium. Good luck to all the competing teams.

Great show by Saraswathy Vidyalaya

Proud of the students of Saraswathy Vidyalaya who celebrated independence day in a very unique way. Under the guidance of the school’s Eco Club, the students conducted clean-up activities outside their school premises on August 15. Kudos to the Eco club members for organizing this and spreading awareness on the need to keep our surroundings litter free and clean.
