Principal's Message - Shri. Naveen Kumar Bhat

“The function of Smt Vidya P Hanchinmani International Residential School is to teach one to think intensively and to think critically. Intelligence plus character – that is the goal of our true education” with a deep sense of commitment to provide innovative education as the stepping-stone foundation for such an educational endeavour.

Education is not just literacy. It is a much broader concept than that. Imparting the right education is equipping a child not only with the knowledge of various subjects, but also empowering them with abilities and skills to face the various challenges of life. We have always aimed at the holistic development of every student, nurturing every important aspect – physical, cultural, emotional and intellectual.

Smt. Vidya P Hanchinmani International Residential School is situated on a 10-acre campus at Attikola, Dharwad.

Emphasis is also laid on imbibing the virtues of being humble, empathetic, compassionate, just, true, conscious about nature, energy conservation, recycling etc. that will go a long way in helping them to become responsible citizens of our country.
