The school started with a vision of imparting holistic education for children in 1992 in a small house in Indira Nagar. It was started by Late Mrs Vedwati Dixit, W/O Late Sri Shambhu Narain Dixit, both freedom fighters who actively worked side by side with the likes of Sri Vinoba Bhave , Ram Manohar Lohia and Sri RamKrishna Bajaj for the upliftment of society.
Mrs. Vedwati Dixit was one of the first women graduates of India who studied in Gurukul Kangdi, Dehradun and later taught there. She had studied all the Vedas, Upanishads and Darshans and was also prolific in Maths.
It was her desire to provide education to children at affordable cost and she laid down the foundations of Holy Shrine School. The school shifted to its present premises in 1997 with Mrs. Usha Shanker joining in. She was working in ICDS at that time and coordinated with UNICEF in the field of Early Childhood Education , immunization and nutrition of children from ages 0-6. After the demise of Mrs. Dixit in 2002, Mrs. Shanker realized that her true calling was in educating children and she took voluntary retirement in 2005 to devote complete attention to the school. With her came her vast field experience of 25 years of working with the rural masses. She brought in valuable insights on how to amalgamate the rural children with the mainstream. She wrote English Conversation Modules to familiarise children with basics of the English Language . The school thrived under her guidance and year after year our students scripted their success stories.
The Government has envisaged a New Education Policy which will start coming into force from 2023.
This Corona time has thrown great challenges ahead of the whole education system, threatening to throw it out of gear. Schools have however gallantly stood to the challenge and modified their pedagogy by relying on online methods. In this scenario the school management thought it imperative to infuse a fresh line of thought , so to speak. The management wishes to take education to great heights wherein skill oriented courses would be available to them as well as health education.
Towards this end I warmly welcome all the Super Stars of the Holy Shrine Constellation.
Together we will rise…..
Together we will shine bright.
