Early Glimpses

Shree Chandulal Nanavati Vinaymandir School came into existence in 1954 as a Gujarati Medium Girls’ institution. A School steeped in Gandhian Philosophies and principles such as dignity of labour, honesty and self – reliance, this institution has made a smooth and uneventful transition into a co-educational and then English medium school since 1993. We are happy to announce that we are now affiliated to ICSE Council in 2016.

Today, six decades later, it still stands tall as a beacon-spreading core educational values such as trust, faith, tolerance and virtue.

Shree Chandulal was the son of the illustrious Dr. Balabhai Nanavati who served many long years as the royal physician of Maharaja Sayajirao Gaikwad of Baroda. A deep desire to be of service to the community drove Shree Chandulal to establish an educational trust in the name of the Nanavati family. His wife Smt. Maniben also shared his vision and worked tirelessly to fulfil her late husband’s dreams.

Her efforts finally came into fruition with the establishment of a Gujarati medium Girls’ school in 1954.

Both Shree Chandulal and his wife Smt. Maniben were close associates of Gandhiji and adopted his ideals and Principles in the setting up of the school.

Today the third generation of this family is proudly holding up the forefathers legacy of ‘Education for All’ with a Vision, ‘Empowering the future’ and a mission to ‘Develop Collective Intelligence’ we move ahead to inculcate ‘Learning for Sustainable Development’ creating Global Citizens for Tomorrow.
