Title : Construction of Science Laboratory and Class Room

Host Club : Rotary Club of Kattur has immense pleasure in serving the human mankind since the year 1963 and is in its 57th year of Charter.

Brief History of the School:

HCK Balavihar Matriculation School is a Non-profit making education institution primary focusing on providing quality education to the rural children drawn from nearly 15 villages which are deprived of school infrastructure for shaping up the children education career.

HCK Balavihar provides the quality education at a much affordable cost to the first generation children to the parents with meagre education / education back ground.

The parents of these first generation children primary does the agricultural activity and the meagre income thus drawn by them will not be sufficient to give their children the quality education and to face this competitive world in the near future.

The parents earning will be just sufficient to make a below normal livelihood and the children education will be compromised or at many instances the children will not further pursue their school education in complete.

HCK Balavihar Matriculation School envisaged the need for the school with state of art infrastructure and took up the noble service of providing quality education at much affordable cost.

HCK Balavihar was incepted during the academic year 2011-12 as the Nursey and Primary School with a meagre strength of 45 students.

Over the past seven years of its presence, HCK Balavihar has introduced further higher standards and has presently enrolled 964 students (Girls students are 429 and Boys students are 535) during the ongoing academic year 2018-19.

HCK Balavihar, presently caters the education needs of the rural students from Pre KG to Tenth standard and also teaches Hindi as an additional language to the students at all standards.
