SVS High School, the oldest educational institute on the cantonment terrain of Khadki, recently held elections for the managing committee of the Tamilian Association which runs the school. The Francis David panel won the election, forming the new committee which will be in place for five years.

The elections were contested by two panels — the Francis David panel and R Omprakash panel. Francis David, president of the committee, said his panel contested the election on the platform of development with a vision to start employment-generating vocational courses, and computer training which includes software development and information technology at concessional rates for those who reside in and around the Khadki area and cannot afford the fees for training in other institutions.

David said they plan to start financial institutions such as Pathpedi credit society, for making loans available to needy and senior citizens. He said they also plan to expand the existing school facility to cater to the needs of higher education. The school secured 100% results in SSC Board Examinations often between 2008 and 2016.

The new committee includes: David Francis, president; S Ananthanarayanan, vice president (Association); Henry Joseph C, vice president (School); Prof S A Kanakraj, gen secretary; Elangovan Manickam, joint Secretary (Association); and C.
