Message from the Manager’s Desk

Madhava Vilasom Higher Secondary School (MVHSS), Thundathil was established in 1950 by late Varthoor A. Madhavan Pillai, a farsighted genius and visionary, with the intention of offering value-based and quality education to the locals of this area. The aim of this school is to help our students' community grow into good human beings capable of facing the challenges of the present world.

In the current scenario, it is essential that the students should excel not only in academics alone, but should also develop courtesy, discipline, social sensitivity, caring and sharing, nature-caring, and be imbibed with the traditional values and culture of our country. The school learning period is the best time to lay the foundation of the core values essential for the overall development of the future citizen of tomorrow’s world.

The thirst for knowledge is not restricted to the students. It is also essential for parents and teachers to keep adding to their knowledge bank by keeping their eyes and ears open and by reading as much as possible and ensuring that the students develop these habits as well. We strive for excellence in academic achievement and promote the development of the students’ skills and aptitudes. Our school is committed to educate our students to be enthusiastic, curious learners who know and understand themselves as individuals and productive community members. We are always open to refreshing views and suggestions which can add more value to the students of our school.

In addition to attain information and knowledge, schools are the platforms for the collaboration of thoughts and ideas. Our school is a friendly place where each and every student is understood, valued, and attended. We offer our students a stress-free learning environment that encourages creativity and critical thinking. The efforts of our teachers and students have taken the school forward in terms of excellence. Today we stand as one of the noted educational landmarks in Thiruvananthapuram District.
MVHSS Thundathil as a Lamp of Education, ignited by its Founder Manager has completed 70 years of long strides. Several thousands of students acquired knowledge from this School are flourishing in various positions in the society. I am blessed to get the opportunity to carry the baton as the Manager of the School since 1996. I will try the best to keep the prestige of this School to greater heights. My big salute to all the former and present teachers of this school for their dedicated and committed involvement in keeping the glory of this institution. Let us pray that this temple of knowledge spreads light to more and more youngsters in the years to come.
