In October 1980 Shree Adinath Jain Swetambar Sangh, Chickpet, Bangalore established Shree Mahaveer Jain Shikshan Sangh to serve the cause of education and started our Bhandari Bhabutmal Ummedmal Labdhi Jain Vidyalaya in Shankarapuram, Bangalore. Sri C. B. Bhandari was the main donor. Sri Sanghvi Kundanmanl was the Founder President and Sri Jeevraj Chowhan the Founder Secretary. It introduced Nursery, Primary, Middle and High School Sections. English was the medium of instruction and Hindi and Kannada were made compulsory Languages of study. The school was affiliated to CBSE, New Delhi. The curriculum and the text-books prescribed by CBSE and NCERT were followed and students were sent up for the All-India Secondary School Examination. Varied Co-curricular activities, P.T. and Games are regular features. The school has desirable traditions and practices such as Morning Assembly and Prayer, Moral Instruction, House System, Celebrations of National Festivals, Sports Day, Annual Day, Staff Association and Annual Medical Examination of children.
Sri G.K. Nagesha Rao was the first Principal of the School. He retired in 1992 and Mrs. Pushpa Sudarshan took over as Principal. She relinquished her post in 2001. Mrs. S.A. Sridevi is the present Principal.
The school has now entered the 29th year of its existence. Students are prepared for the All-India Secondary School Examination (AISSE) at the end of class X. There are well qualified, trained and experienced teachers. It has sent up 25 batches of students for the All-India Secondary School Examination and has produced 100% results continuously every year. It has established itself as a premier educational institution in the heart of the city of Bangalore, with high standards and progressive outlook.
Education is as old as the human race, though in course of time, its meaning and objectives have inevitably undergone changes. Now education is being redefined. The children of today can see the relevance of what they are learning. BBUL Jain Vidyalaya offers curricula which fulfill the needs of the learners with sufficient practical work and project work, thus producing future citizens of integrated personality, blending education with technology.
The concept of all-round development of the children is the prime concern of our Institution, which extends beyond the transmission of knowledge.
BBUL Jain Vidyalaya creates an environment that goes beyond mere study, grooming independent, competent, resilient, patient and understanding individuals. The school empowers the student with confidence and a sense of responsibility, inculcating civic and human values by integrating community awareness and social concern into the curriculum.
