“The sweetest lives are those to duty wed,
whose deeds both great and small
Are close – knit strands of an unbroken thread,
where love enables all”
– Elizabeth Barrett Browning
True to the above lines of the poetess , K.C.S.N Memorial Educational Improvement Committee dawned in the year 1962 , by the tiredless efforts of the five great idealogists Late Thiru P.P.M Muruga Dhanushkodi , Late Thiru T.A.M.A Marimuthu Nadar, Late Thiru K.C.S Kasi Nadar, Late Thiru T.S.T Raja and Thiru A.Sankaralingam B.Sc., who were the renowned personalities endowed with the traits of Sacrifice , Charity , Sagacity , Compassion and Generosity.
The Colossal tragedy that struck a school , the collapse of its building at Madurai city , shook the whole of Tamil Nadu. This heart – breaking incident , made the munificient committee members,contribute Rs 500 /- , a very handsome amount at that point of time , to the Director of Education Thiru Ne.Thu.Sundaravadivelu.
“One tiny thought in tiny word
May give a great one birth,
And , if that thought was caused by me,
I lived a life worth.”
The ONE tiny benevolent gesture of the committee members , was greatly appreciated by the Director and the one tiny word of request made by the Director motivated the visionary minded committee and that resulted in a great ONE BIRTH – a High School for girls at North Chennai. This Institution is named after Late Thiru Muruga Dhanushkodi as a mark of respect and honour in recognition of his selfless sacrifice of an enormous contribution of Rs 50,000/- towards its establishment.
This Institution had the unique privilege of being inaugurated by the blessed hands of the thenChief Minister of Tamil Nadu Karmaveerar,Late Thiru Kamarajar , the King – maker on 24th of July, in the year 1964.
In Sept 1965 the land comprising of 22 plots was procured for Rs 1,50,000/- and the construction was over on 14.4.1967 , the Tamil New Year Day.Thereafter , the school started functioning on its own premises. In the year 1978 – 79 this institution obtained the recognition of Higher Secondary School.
