JAN UTKARSH SHIKSHAN SAUNSTHA
कै पुंडलिक तुकोबा नाईक
Jan Utkarsh Shikshan Saunstha, as the name itself suggests, is an institution, established, with a sole objective of providing educational facilities to the downtrodden, neglected, and underprivileged students especially belonging to Bahujan Samaj of Quepem and Sanguem taluka.
Few likeminded people, in whose brain it was constantly haunting to establish an educational institution, one fine day on 5th Feb. 1978 came together at “Sathyabhama Niwas” under the leadership of great visionary, & philanthropist late late Shri Pundalik Tukoba Naik alias ‘Apa’and resolved to establish an institution, entirely, exclusively to promote educational facilities to the needy and poor students in general and to the students of Bahujan Samaj in particular.
When all the ingredients are available, good cook is there with willingness to cook, a delicious food is prepared within no time. Similarly when people having serious urge think positively and continuously, the objective will be realised faster. Accordingly Jan Utkarsh Shikshan Saunstha was established.
The 1st brain child Smt CTN high school started in 1981 with 120 students in std V & VI. The number of learners increased to 700 in 1986. This was the boost to start CTN hr. Sec. School in Aug 1987 under the able guidance of shri Subhash P. Naik and other members of the saunstha with enrolment of 107 students in arts and commerce. The saunstha stretched its wings by starting Primary and Pre Primary sections in 1993. Thus, the child once takes admission at Pre primary level will have an opportunity to complete his or her education till higher level with an option to choose any one of the streams of Arts, Science, Commerce and vocational.
Satisfaction is the utmost fruit of the hard work and continuous efforts. Thus we find ourselves over – joyed to see the rush of students and parents to seek admission in this Hr. Sec. The increase in the divisions is the effect of love and trust shown by the parents and students from not only Sanguem – Quepem taluka but also from Margao, Ponda cities. We feel highly contented for starting the school. Hundreds and thousands of students reap the benefit of our institution. Our achievements are due to the grace of Shree Chandreshwar Bhutnath, Lord Mahadev, Lord Ganesh, Lord Dhanu Ghadi, Shree Sati Devi, Shree Purus Mahru etc.
Today saunstha own’s 4000 sq mt. Of land with full – fledged infra structure to run the school in two sessions. Even though we are on the high peak of achievement we do remember the 1st day when late shri. Gajanan Shirodkar, owner of Angecia Real who laid the foundation stone in 16 feb 1981. The selfless services of the Smt Chandrabhaga Tukoba Naik Hr. Sec. School for all round development of the poor and marginalised section of the society is truely praise worthy. It not only excels in the field of academics but also in various fields such as sports, science, arts and culture under the effective guidance of Principal, all the teachers and administrative staff.
From a humble beginning in 1987 the tiny seedling has grown into a huge baniyan tree attaining great heights. It gives a great pleasure to inform you that we have upgraded ourselves in today’s digital world by launching our website www.chandrabhagahss.org. It is possible only because of the timely assistance and support extended by the management. The credit also goes to the dedicated and sincere principal & staff members and students without whose help nothing could have been achieved. Still many much needs to be achieved in the years to come.
