Adding yet another feather to his cap, Mr.Jose Thomas in his efforts to spread quality education, is establishing one more school in Kozhikode, after Kochi and Thiruvalla.
To begin with, The Choice School, Kozhikode has opened up admissions to its Kindergarten section, (KG and Grade 1) at Chevayur, near Medical College. The Main school will come up on a sprawling campus at Vellalassery near NIT for classes from Grade I to Grade 12, with state of the art facilities.
CetraRuddy, a New York based award-winning Architecture and Interior Design firm, driven by design excellence and creating one-of-a-kind architectural experience, is our Principal Architect for this project. The main school will consist of a Primary School Block, a Middle School Block and a High School Block, each having independent entry and exit points, school administration offices, classrooms, specialty classrooms, library and student commons.
This block organization is intended to foster a sense of security within each school, while also suggesting a conceptual progression of independence, as students move from a more dependent Primary School organization to a more independently organized High School.
On 14th December 2015,the school was launched in the presence of Dr. K.Mohammed Basheer, Vice Chancellor, Calicut University who was the Chief Guest and Shri N. Prasanth, District Collector, who presided over the function. Dr.Kulbhushan Balooni, Director, IIM, Kozhikode was the Guest of Honour while Shri M.P.Veerendra Kumar, a renowned Writer and Director, Mathrubhumi, delivered the keynote address.
Ms. Anjana Unnikrishnan, who has been actively involved with the Choice school, Tripunithura for twenty years now and was the Vice Principal (Administration and Middle School), for the past eight years, has taken over as the Principal of The Choice School, Kozhikode. She has made her mark at The Choice School, with her capacity to handle crisis situations calmly, her strong team building skills, attention to details, efficient and responsible execution of duties.
