In view of the expected growth, to provide education in various new subjects, start new courses, which will respond to the expectations of the parents and at the same time, impart education oriented to prepare students for employment/self-employment and also to enhance all-round quality of education, we have various plans and projects for the future. For this, a Master Plan for ensuing ten years is already finalized.

   We now present to you an outline of our future plans and projects.

   While conceptualizing these, we have the following in mind-

  • The low financial capabilities of the students/parents in the Kokan region
  • Need to create employment/self –employment oriented capabilities
  • Lack of proficiency in English language
  • Anticipated meager employment/self-employment opportunities for students in Kokan region.

   We are glad to inform that we have received permission and affiliation from Mumbai University to start Degree (senior) college for the Arts/Science/Commerce streams from academic year, 2016-17. We have started classes for Arts and Science for year 2016-17 and introduced Science stream from the year 2017-18.

   The proposed construction of the B wing of the School Building Master Plan to add 6/10 more class rooms and infrastructural facilities at an estimated cost of Rs 150 Lac is completed at a cost of approx. Rs 120 Lac and the estimated cost for the balance work is approx Rs 30.00 lac. For the remaining work of providing laboratories, benches, create a library and other facilities the expected further expenses are estimated of Rs 50 Lac.

   Many of our students are unable to continue further education beyond SSC or HSC. Also, there are drop-outs. With no employment oriented skills, these students find it extremely difficult to find a job and mostly end-up doing casual/sundry jobs. If they can acquire some skills, they can have a much better opportunity for employment/self-employment. With this in view, we propose to start skill oriented short term courses (4 to 6 months duration), covering theory and with emphasis on practical training, to prepare students for trades of carpentry, masonry, welding, electricians, plumbing, etc. One time investment in creating infrastructure and acquiring required tools and tackle, work-stations, demonstration materials, etc is estimated at Rs 30 Lac and recurring expenses on remuneration for teaching staff, consumable materials is estimated at Rs 9-13 Lac, per annum. We propose to start this facility under the PRADHAN MANDRI KAUSHALYA VIKAS YOJANA.

We propose to construct a workshop and other infrastructural facilities of approx. 3200 sq ft area for the proposed Vocational Training Centre, which is expected to start classes during academic year, 2018-19, at an estimated cost of Rs 30.00 Lac. Our architect has prepared the plans and cost estimates for this project.

   There is a growing demand for English medium schools. Some schools in Ratnagiri have already started English Medium Schools and the number is growing. Considering this trend and persistent demand from students and their parents, we have a proposal to start a full-fledged independent English medium school from 1st standard to 10th standard (SSC). The cost estimate for classrooms and other infrastructural facilities is estimated at Rs 200L.

   We have a hall named Bhagoji Keer Hall for various student meetings and extra-curricular activities. This hall, constructed in 1960, is now in dilapidated and unsafe condition and requires major repair work. While doing this, we propose to extend the hall by about 10-12metres and provide a balcony in the end portion of about 20metres. The estimated cost for this work is approx. Rs 100 Lac.

   We are aware of the need to provide more books/periodicals/newspapers to our libraries, which we have not been able to do to our satisfaction for want of funds. We need to invest Rs 10 Lac, on one time basis, for purchasing new books. For subscriptions to magazines, periodicals and newspapers and regular replacement/addition to books, we need to generate Rs 2 Lac, every year, by way of interest on long-term deposits.

   Liking and aptitude for gymnastics/sports and exercise are long-term investments in good health habits. We have, however, limited sports/gymnastics, in-door/out-door games facilities. We are aware that we need to strengthen these facilities. The estimated one-time cost of providing/strengthening these facilities is approx. Rs 10 Lac.

   This will go a long way in building good-health habits in our students.

   To supplement the class room teaching, we propose to introduce e-learning from 1st STD to 12th (Jr College). The software and hardware cost for this project is expected to be Approx. Rs 25 Lac.

   With starting of the Senior (Degree) college, increased student strength in our Junior colleges, requiring large class rooms, which can accommodate about 120 students, each (particularly for Commerce stream), we are quite hard pressed for class-rooms and other infrastructural facilities, particularly for the Senior College. Simultaneously, some of the institutions need to be re-located, for overall convenience (such as-locating the Senior College in a separate building). We will need to construct covered carpet area of approx. 25000 sft, in two-three years. This will need large investment to the tune of Rs 5-6 LLac, at present day costs.

These, in brief, are our plans for future
All these plans will need infusion of massive investments. This is a challenge for educational institutions, particularly in the poor region like Kokan. We feel confident that our past and present students and their parents, benevolent donor and Corporates with strong social commitment and well wishers will see the earnestness of our honest desire to provideforward looking educational facilities and environment and also to provide students with capabilities for employment/self-employment and make their contribution, in the cause of education. Some Corporate Houses have their own programmes designed or tailor made for various sectors of society. We shall be happy to any such programmes, specifically designed for Educational Institutions.

With kind regards
