Vallabh Vidyalaya acquired its existence out of the Indian Freedom Movement. As such, the spirit of patriotism and devotion
to the nation are the basic ideals of the institution. Whenever need arose during the freedom struggle, the staff and
the students of the Vidyalaya had made their contribution in full measure. Now-a-days, when the institution has grown
into a multi-farious organisation, it is interesting to know how its different sections function individually as well as collectively.
Basic School ( Kumar Mandir) :
Vallabh Vidyalaya started its education with this section comprising Std. V to VII. Hence this section is the first and the oldest
one of the institution.It started functioning in 1931. In those years the British authorities used to grant recognition to schools,
but this Vidyalaya was started as a rural centre of Gujarat Vidyapith, and hence there was no question of getting such
Post Basic School ( Vinay Mandir ) :
While working in the basic school, it was observed that while studying at that stage a student acquired the basic virtues of life
like devotion to work, self-reliance, honesty,punctuality, responsibility, dutifulness, spirit of social service etc., but after leaving
the Vidyalaya, when he joins an ordinary high school for further study or takes to some job, the same student loses those
virtues sooner or later. So. It was felt that, if the student lives in the Chhatralaya (Hostel) yet for a longer period, those
virtues may be firmly in his life and become more lasting. In such a scenario, it was felt needful to start further classes.Than
“Seva Samaj” decided to finance the post basic school. As such, std. VII was started in June 1961, by Gujarat Vidyapith.
By opening the higher standard every year, the school became a full-fledged high school in 1964, teaching upto std. XI
Higher Post Basic School ( Uchhatar Vinay Mandir) :
In 1975-76, the Gujarat Government implemented the scheme of 10+2 system in secondary education. As a result, Std. XI
in the post basic school was discontinued and the higher section of +2 was started with Std. XI followed by Std. XII the next
Primary Teachers Training College ( Adhyapan Mandir ) :
The principal object of Vallabh Vidyalaya has been to render rural service and to achieve total development of the students
of the backward communities. The primary teachers could be considered to be providers of rural services for all time, and
to provide them proper training for teaching as well as rural service, a basic teachers’ training college was started.
Primary School ( Bal Shala ) :
From the very inception of Vallabh Vidyalaya, the school was started for Std. V to VII. The children of the staff and the people
living around could not go to school for I to IV standards, as the village school was far, and hence remained illiterate. So, in
1952-53 he found out through 4 surveys that if the lower classes were started, 23 children would be enrolled in June, 1953
I to III standards were started in the open varendah.
Shri Shivabhai G. Patel Post Basic School for Girls, Bhalel :
Shri Shivabhai firmly believed that the education of the girls was very vital for the progress of the society. One of the
objective of Gujarat Vidyapith also was to spread education of the girls.So Shri Shivabhai directed his efforts into that sphere.
The Government of Gujarat consented to provide scholarship to the girls in this school. Kheda District Panchayat, some
other Taluka Panchayat, old students of Vallabh Vidyalay and the staff also agreed to give financial help. Thus, collective
cooperation of many individuals, government and non-government agencies led to he establishment of the post basic girls’
school at the village Bhalel where 12 farmers sold their sixteen and half bighs of land at a very affordable price to house the
Shri Gangaben was given from Gandhi Asram, Ahmedabad, a cow of good breed, “ Jamna”and Gandhiji advised her to look
after that cow. That cow was brought to the Vidyalaya and the Goshala was started. Vallabh Vidyalaya has become self-
sufficient in milk supply on account of this Goshala, and simultaneously the practical training of the students is well arranged
helping them to acquire skills in various processes.
