Dear parents and students,
The two-year pre-university course is a very important phase in a student’s life. It is that phase which decides the future of the student. Hence, it has to be very carefully planned, drafted and executed.
Sri. Sivananda Sarma was born to Sri. Kalamma and Sri. Kapanna in a tiny village in Madarahalli, about 5 KM from T. Narasipura. While agriculture was their way of life, Sri. Sarma found himself immersed in books. Inspired by his quest for knowledge and his astute mother’s encouragement, Sri. Sarma decided to join the Siddaganga Mutt in Tumkur. He pursued his education in Sanskrit and subsequently went on to study at Sri. Chamarajendra Sanskrit College, Bangalore. He later proceeded to Allahabad to complete his ‘Sahitya Visharada’. Historically, Sri. Sarma was placed at an opportune moment, the context of which pointed out his life’s goal; that of providing education to the future citizens of a free India, as envisioned by Mahatma Gandhi and Sri. Madan Mohan Malaviya. Sri. Sarma travelled widely across India, visiting various educational institutions of eminence like Shantiniketan and Kangadi Gurukula, founded by Swamy Shraddananda. Inspired by Mahatma Gandhi’s ideals, he participated in the freedom struggle and served a jail term. Sri. Sarma’s knowledge, education, experience, vision, ambition, and goals combined into a single fulcrum point on Vijayadashami, Vikrama Samvatsara in 1940, when he established a single-classroom school for six children in Visweswarapuram, Bangalore. This was the RV Higher Primary School, which in turn fortified the beginnings of the “Rashtreeya Vidyalaya”. While classes were held on rented premises, including that of Arasoji Rao Charitable Trust, Sri. Sarma was in search of a stable location for the school. He approached the city authorities and was sanctioned a piece of land in December 1943, near LalBagh West Gate in Bangalore. The 29-year-old Sri. Sarma had set the stage for the illustrious growth of RV Educational Institutions. He believed that education is the only tool that would help individuals fulfil their aspirations. The Rashtreeya Sikshana Samithi Trust has forever been committed to this belief, by expanding and providing the necessary infrastructure for the students. Sri. Sarma served as its Founder Secretary till his demise in 1969.
Dear parents and students, The two-year pre-university course is a very important phase in a student’s life. It is that phase which decides the future of the student. Hence, it has to be very carefully planned, drafted, and executed. We believe that communication is the key to a successful educational experience. This will improve the quality of education delivery and provide the best for the students. Education is a well coordinated effort of the institution, students, and parents together. It is our goal to ensure that all students succeed. To achieve this, we must create an inclusive and positive environment. We have high expectations of our students, both academically and behaviorally. This can be met with the help of supportive parents. Research clearly suggests that when parents participate and are involved in their child’s education, there is greater academic success for the child. The college will provide an enriching environment which is a blend of academic and co-curricular activities that can bring about a holistic development in the students to mould them for the challenging world of tomorrow.
