The Management of the school
The Sree Narayana Trusts Central School is owned and administered by the Sree Narayana Trusts, founded by late Sri.R Sankar (1909-1972) a dynamic leader with great vision to uplift the socially and educationally backward communities of the society. He started a number of colleges in various parts of Kerala. The famous teaching of Sree Narayana Guru, “Enlightenment through education” was realized through these institutions of higher education. Thousands of people from the backward classes of the state got a chance to pursue higher education through these colleges.
Initially the thrust of the S N Trusts was on establishing institutions of higher learning only. In 1996, soon after Sri.Vellappally Natesan was elected secretary of the S N Trusts, it was decided to start CBSE schools under the Trusts. Accordingly, the Sree Narayana Trusts Central School was inaugurated by him on 6th June 1997. Sri Vellappally Natesan remains the Manager of the school ever since its inception.
