A school with a difference

A school with a difference


The government high school at Huradi, Hanubalu hobli, in the taluk is an example in itself. It has proved that it is not inferior to any private school by securing 98 per cent results in SSLC over the past three years.

The school that was started only in 1998 is 28 km away from the taluk headquarters on the borders of Mudigere taluk in Chikamagalur district.

Situated on a four-acre plot, the school is surrounded by green and clean environs, which is conducive for education. It also has a building in good condition and a playground.

In line with the infrastructure and environment, quality education is imparted to the students in the school. The students, who are disciplined and well-mannered, excel in sports and extra-curricular activities. The playground has a volley ball and kho-kho court and students get all sports equipment. Not to be left behind, the students are also familiarised with computers. There are 11 computers and good trainers.

Students are encouraged to read newspapers, exercise, voluntary work, literature, performing arts, fine arts, etc. There are notice boards in each classroom, on which students can pin their poems, short stories, drawings, paintings, etc to be read and seen by all.

The headmaster Hanumanthappa, an ex-journalist, is a motivated person and he in turn motivates his team members. The role of academic advisor Shivakumar, members of school development and monitoring committee, and teachers in the progress has been vital.

A resident of the village H M Vikramgowda supported the construction of the playground financially.

Hanubalu grama panchayat president Keshavamurthy said it was due to the efforts of former MLA H M Vishwanath that the school got four acres. He said ex-MLA also strived to get adequate funds for the construction of the building.
