My Alma mater...R. S. K. Higher Secondary School

Off late, I was thinking back most of the time … …my school days in R S K Higher Secondary School…..just thought to google it and find out…..Hats off to search engine..........There comes a lot of hits…..I was amazed to see some of the cool real pictures still live in my mind..the place where I lived almost 7 years…almost every day…..all live pictures were much flashing by my mind…

The lawn before the main entrance.........always fresh and green....gives us the energy to be lively and fresh in mind...........to grab the + and - of the subjects.........

The main entrance as seen from the road........welcoming us every day

The playground..where I hardly play…but we cross the desert to reach the main school from the primary school……to hit our library…of course, our serious drill practice for our “Sports day”…March past..heats which runs for 3 days continuously..PT masters drill us down..…The place where a good amount of atheletes were discovered....breaking school records ....year after year......


And the colourful and ever green garden with helluva of lotsa of crotons, marigolds..green grass bed..streched out in the center.."Central Park"....The days I spend my free hours watching the lawn from my first bench in 12th standard......making everyone fresh when we get tried after sqeezing our brains with whole lot of tough stuffs...maths, biology and physics....My refreshment.....


Ground floor - Office room, Principle's room, library
Upstairs - Physics lab...Staff room for Mr. Lloyd (My Favourite English teacher - in 11th and 12th class...When we were eagerly waiting for our new teachers on the day one of 12th standard .....who is going to handle English for us?.....On seeing Lloyd Sir entering our class, we clapped our hands continuously for 5 minutes so loudly...he was so happy ...his eyes filled with moisture standing there and hushing us...but we continued to clap.....we were really thrilled to have him back...)



The never-shaken ever strong...Banyan tree…it has been years since it was there…..We find shelter under its branches during our morning assembly…….stands out with pride and compassion……. I have lunch here sitting under the cover of my big strong tree....




The Banyan tree - giving shelter from scrotching heat
The stage where we used to perform many shows…culturals…debates..elocution…..have assembly almost daily............I try to overcome my "Stage fear" here....just had couple of presence on this stage....My leg shivers for those minutes......heart beating beyond the recommended level.....But would love to come back and speak over the mike......


My 9th class ..first room in the ground floor..adjacent to the stair case.....My 12th classroom is the 2nd room upstairs ...…



The office room adjacent to our beloved “Pricipal” room…popularly informally called Princi…….
The staffs….I remember my English teacher - Mr. Llyod, my biology ma’am - Ms. Ranjani…..Chemistry terror “DKP”..D. Kadiresa pandian - Organic Chemistry (we hardly address him by his real name)…and Josephine ma’am (Inorganic and Physical Chemistry) , Physics-Mr. Rajkumar, Maths - Mr. Devaraj (Devudu)....My last Prinicpal was Reverent Brother Joseph…Prior to that was Reverent Brother.Augustine Novello… …..
I remember my dear Ms. Valsama John...my History teacher in 6th class, my class teacher in 8th class teaching History.....

My Primary School....from class 6 to class 8
This is the school which has carved me out very beautifully...the "me"...right now .....I thank my parents , my Acchan, who was a BHEL, Trichy employee, who made this opportunity possibe for my brother ( 1990 batch) and me (1992 batch)....

I thank all my lovely teachers in my school who had been there with us always everytime.....
Last but not the least, I got married to my dear hubby who is also an ex-RSKite (1988 batch) and SIL studied here too till her 10th class(till 1990)......
I'm dedicating this post to my school, lovely teachers, and all the students....

  1. WOW!! That school is so well maintained and good looking. Lucky you. Because of my dad's job, I went to 5 schools until I completed my high school! :D

  2. My school was initially run by Monfort Brothers of Yercad....under the financial guidance of BHEL...hence it got all the support in terms of infrastructure, and all...But it has changed management...So I don't know what is the plight now??? Our times it was great..and the best school in Trichy....very proud to be one.....
