Golden Jubilee Year Celebration

Dr. Kalmadi Shamarao is celebrating its Golden Jubilee this year. 2021 marked the completion of 50 glorious years of this institution.
However, the celebrations had to be postponed by a year due to the country-wide restrictions in the wake of the pandemic.
The Golden Jubilee function was held on the 12th of October.


Every child deserves a good education

“We believe that every child deserves a good education. We work with 217 boys and girls coming from poor migrant families of Kannadigas residing in Pune. It is our dream to make life beautiful for these children and open doors for them for a better future.”

We are proud to be associated with project TOMORROW TOGETHER, an initiative by the lila poonawala foundation.

LPF Scholarship: The LILA POONAWALLA FOUNDATION is supporting our girl students for their education till they complete their graduation in any field of their interest. They support our girls by providing them with counselling, coaching classes, stationary, medical check-up, career guidance, educational visits, etc .

Community Living - KHS and 'Green Hills'

Our school actively engaged in an environment conservation project with the NGO ‘green hills’.

Under this project, our students visit specific hills in Pune, two times every week. They undertake various tasks such as:

  • Planting and nurturing saplings.
  • Cleaning the hills of weeds and grass, plastic bags, and bottles.
  • Building bunds on the hill slopes to stop soil erosion and conserve water.
  • Our students visit Hanuman Tekdi near Symbiosis every week throughout the year.

This raises environmental awareness in our children as well as empowers them by showing them that their small actions are ones that have a great impact.
