Kemundel Higher Primary School


Man is an inseparable part of society. Hence education is essential for the holistic progress of society as well as individual achievement. School is a temple of education which brings forth unique harmony and cordial relations among students. Kemmandelu Higher Primary School, in Kapu Talluk of Udupi district, is one such sacred place which has contributed for the great cause of education of the rural folk. The name of the place “Kemmandelu” owes its origin to “Kamandalu” of the renowned Saint Shri Vadiraja Teertharu of Udupi.

This school has a history of more than a century and has imparted basic education to thousands of students in its illustrious career of more than a century starting from the year 1890. From those days when education was a mirage to the rural folk, this school has silently rendered its priceless service to thousands of rural children. From the past 7 or 8 years this school is functioning under the able guidance of His Holiness Sugunendra Teertha Swamiji of Puthige Matha and his Holiness Swamiji has contributed about more than a crore of rupees for the improvement of the school.

This ancient school needs to possess modern classy looks and get refurbished to meet the demands of modern education. We are eagerly looking forward to add new infrastructure to this school for expansion and add finesse to the school suitable to the modern educational scenario. Our mission is to renew this 128 year old institution so as to make it attractive in the context of 21st century. This is an opportune occasion for all alumni and well-wishers to contribute and repay the debt of gratitude for this rare temple of learning which has stood the test of time.

We are launching a drive to refurbish the school with new building, sophisticated class rooms, modern infrastructure like furniture, Computer lab, library, auditorium, open air theatre, classy kitchen, playground, court yard and others at a cost of two crores and provide opportunity for more students to realize their dream of getting quality education. As we are indebted to this school for blooming of our life and career, this is right time to join hands and satisfy our feelings of gratitude. We appeal to you to come forward to join hands with us in this worthy cause of rebuilding this school.
