Principal of Gwalior’s Scindia School to meet parents at Chitnavis Centre today evening

Nagpur: Dr. Madhav Deo Saraswat, the Principal of Gwalior’s famed ‘The Scindia School’ will be visiting Nagpur on Saturday. During his visit the would be meeting prospective parents here. Saraswat has appealed all the parents to visit in large numbers to participate in the discussion, apparently focussed on various prospects of their school going children.

Saraswat would be addressing the parents at Chitnavis Centre on Saturday 24th March from 7 to 9 pm.
The Scindia School, originally The Sardars’ School, was founded in 1897 by the visionary HH Maharaja Madhavrao Scindia I. The turn of the nineteenth century was a period of turmoil and disorientation, as the colonial Macaulayite system of education with English as the medium of instruction, was displacing the traditional pathshalas, madarsas and gurukuls. Even back then, the school captured the best of the learning of the new world, and combined it with the best of timeless India. Indeed ever since, The Scindia School has unfailingly been one step ahead of its time.

The Scindia School, with its unique location, is a notably different residential school. Located atop the magnificent Gwalior Fort it has the city below and the hills across. The ramparts of the Fort have witnessed Tantia Tope’s troops battle the British, and seen the Rani of Jhansi breathe her last in her final assault. A casual glance out of a classroom window may well find eyes rest on an exquisite sixth century temple, adorned with bas-reliefs.
