S V Educational Institutions
Managed by S V Education Trust
In the early 20th century education for women was socially unacceptable. During this time of strong opposition to women’s education, the trustees of Sri Venkataramana Temple took a bold and revolutionary initiative, to provide education to girl children. They started Hindu Balika Pathashala in 1909. A building for the school was constructed in the year 1911 with the donation from Late Sri K. Subraya Kamath and Late Sri K. P. Subraya Prabhu in memory of Sri Ammembala Subraya Pai Mrs. Graham wife of Dist. Collector laid the foundation stone and Rtd. Dist. Judge S. Raghunathayya inaugurated the building. In 1934 S. V. T. Higher Primary School wa Started. Sri Balkunje Subba Rao donated funds for the construction of the school building. Realizing the need of high school education for the girls, the temple trust started S.V.T Girls High School in 1944. Earlier to this there was only one high school viz. Board high school in Karkala. Sri Balkunje Subba Rao, Sri Balkunje Gopal Krishna Shenoy, Sri Renjala Govardhan Shenoy and Sri K.P. Sheshagiri Prabhu donated funds for construction of the high school building. Gradually as the years went by, keeping up with the changes in the educational system, in the year 1972 the high school was upgraded to women’s junior college.
