THE KALKUNTE EDUCATION TRUST ® S.CADAMBI VIDYA KENDRA
The Kalkunte Education Trust was formed in the year 1939 by a group of eminent educationists and philanthropists with a vision to build academic institutions Par excellence and to nurture the character of the young ones to grow into diplomatic citizens of our country.
It was aimed to cherish the heritage handed over to the community by the elders of yester years. Nourish it and develop it fully to meet the needs of present generation. To achieve this purpose, it was the dream to establish own educational and cultural centre in the metropolitan city of Bangalore to expand the service in the cause of education. The dream came true by procuring a site and constructing own building in 1984 and the responsibility of running the school was entrusted to a sub committee of retired teachers and educationalists. Thus S.Cadambi Vidya Kendra came in to existence during the academic year 1984-85.
