Being the President of GSPM I would like to share my message… Initiating a school in the remote corner of Maharashtra was a herculean task which was taken up by Adv. Vitthalrao Dhote, Madhukarrao Kalshikar,and Late Ramchandra Gore . The school is a temple where life skill, knowledge, discipline, punctuality and employment ability are nurtured. It is such a home where students and teachers bind relation with perfect harmony. It is not that only students learn but teachers also undergo the learning process. It is not that only teachers teach but students also undergo the process of teaching to other students. Some places we have visited may be forgotten. But the school is such a place (in our life) which we never forget. In ancient time students had to live at “Gurukul” teacher’s home to learn the various skill. In the course of time the idea of schooling got changed. Now the students and teachers have to go to a place where they can engage themselves in the teaching-learning process. We the Gadchandur Shikshan Prasarak Mandal Gadchandur have honour to provide such a place as Mahatma Gandhi Vidhyalaya and Jr. College at Gadchandur, Maharashtra. We didn’t stop here. To cope up with modern schooling facility we developed the infrastructure. We stress on quality which essentially attract quantity. When I took over as the President of GSPM in 2011. I got to know that the school has 54 class sections and the entire strength of students is around 3025. When I shared this information with my MLA friend, he surprisingly asked ‘Is it a one school? This seems to be seven schools.’ These days Marathi Medium Schools are searching for students but for our school parents queue up to enroll. To get this status our management directors, the Principal, Asst. Headmaster and the staffers have been working hard enough. Best wishes to the teaching and learning community.
Gadchandur Shikshan Prasarak Mandal, Gadchandur the brain child of Adv. Vitthalrao Dhote Ex. MLA and Shri Madhukarrao Kalshikar came into existence with the prime motto to impart education in the rural areas of the then Rajura Tahsil adjoining A.P. It was formed in 1969. The area was alienated from the main walk of life having no educational and transport facilities. The very thought of opening a school here was awesome. The honourable members of the GSPM lay foundation of their first academic offspring on the auspicious occasion of Gandhi Jayanti 2nd October 1969. The school was named after the apostle of non-violence and peace Mahatma Gandhi as Mahatma Gandhi Vidyalaya , Gadchandur. The little sapling has taken the shape of gorgeous tree having 6 institutes. The rich history of the institutes carried its imprint in the present. The GSPM’s President Hon Subhashbhau Dhote (MLA), the secretary Hon. Prof. Dr. Anilrao Chitade, The Joint Secretary Dhananjay Gore and the Hon. Directors have been taking toil to develop the infrastructure to furnish quality education.
Mahatma Gandhi Vidyalaya /Junior College Gadchandur is more than 42 years old. It is a matter of pleasure coated with sense of satisfaction that it has lived up to the expectations of people with which it was started in 1969 by Adv. Vithalrao Dhote, the then M.L.A. of this region and his friends. It was an attempt on the part of management to make available a place, first of its kind of education in remotest and tribal area of Chandrapur district of Maharashtra state. The students passing from this school proving their excellence in various fields generate sense of pride for all of us.
Right from the inception the management has maintain the supportive approach conductive to generation of academic environment complemented by best possible infrastructure made available to students and faculty members.
The orientation of staff members towards teaching and developing new skills in teaching, continuous implementation of new ideas in teaching methodologies is an index to successful cultivation of academic environment in the school. Management have always encouraged and appreciated the faculties engaged in such activities.
Along with the time the challenges to improve, innovate and maintain the standards, I am confident that the dynamic leadership of Mr. B. B. Zanzad, Principal and his well qualified and energetic team of staff members has the potential to explore the best and ever growing heights of educational skill.
I also wish that the students passing from this school serve our society to the best of their ability and will emerge as good human beings. My best wishes are with Principal, faculty members and students for their bright future.
